Capsule Wardrobe Concept for Spring


If I were to narrow down my favorite colors to wear it would easily be navy, white, and pink. I've teamed up with thredUp, an online thrift store where you can buy and sell designer items, to show what my capsule wardrobe would look like. To start off, I chose this silk Lilly Pulitzer top and this J. Crew Factory eyelet skirt. thredUp has some really great prices on clothes from some of my favorite brands, both pieces were only $50 together! You would never know they weren't brand new items, my skirt even still had the tags attached!
 I like too many colors to really narrow down a capsule wardrobe, but I do really like the concept of it. I'm challenging myself to try to wear only pink, white, and navy for a few weeks and see how far I get. Since this outfit is on the dressier side, come back Wednesday to see how I style the top and skirt separately with different pieces for more casual looks! Aside from that next post, my outfit posts may still be every color of the rainbow. But, I will be sharing some of the capsule concept on snapchat (caralinastyle) and Instagram (@cara_194)!

And here is how I have put my capsule wardrobe together. I do have some other pieces in these colors. But, I know I can wear the pieces I included in these sets in several different ways.

  1. I'm not sure I could limit myself to a capsule wardrobe, but I love the idea. I'd totally go with pink, navy and white too!

  2. Love this concept and can't wait to see all the outfits you come up with! I did a capsule challenge recently and mine included lots of black, white, and green

  4. I love how you included bright and fun colors in your capsule wardrobe- lots of the ones I've seen are lots are gray and black, too boring for me!
