Read about my flexible capsule here.
Thinking about what I’ll wear in warmer weather is, all things considered, a fairly healthy coping mechanism for enduring these final days of winter.
There are a few silhouettes and colors I’ve been drawn to since last summer that I’m hoping to add to or revive in my warm weather wardrobe this year. I’ve made a few purchases already, and there are plenty of things from last year that I will continue to wear, but I need to think about updating some of my basic tees, as the Everlane ones I’ve had for several years are beginning to show too much wear. Since the cotton tends to be thin to begin with, I’m thinking of trying tees from American Giant or Fair Indigo this year.
I’m also A LOT more focused on buying as much as possible on the secondhand market, so some of the items I plan to purchase, while not ethically produced, will be sourced secondhand so as not to contribute to further demand for new products. I’ve come to terms with the fact that some secondhand, conventional-brand items are more likely to suit my needs than sub-par swaps produced “ethically.”
I use Pinterest to find and save outfit inspiration, so I’ve embedded my Spring/Summer Wardrobe Inspiration Pinterest board below. Interestingly, this board represents years of pinning, but the themes stay almost the same.
Predominant Themes for Spring & Summer Personal Style:
Colors: Burnt Orange, Green, Blue, Mustard Yellow
Silhouettes: Full Midi Skirts, Crew neck tees, ’90s Dresses, Cropped jeans
