Peek inside my closet: My Summer Capsule

 
 

Hello, m’love! Have you ever wanted to ask a friend, or maybe someone you follow on Instagram, “So exactly what clothes do you have and how much did you spend to get them?”

I know I’ve felt like that before. {wink}

Since we’re all friends around here, I wanted to demystify my closet by giving you a roundup of what I’ve been wearing this summer. This is everything I've added to my wardrobe this summer. (There's one exception which I will cover on my Instagram story today (@rebecca.jacobs)—I love this new feature!)

With each piece, I’ve noted whether it was a new addition this season or when else it came into my wardrobe.

And I’m just going to say it: I love my summer wardrobe. Yet, if you look closely, you might notice that I have two (ya, 2!) tops I’m wearing all the time. But let me tell you, those two tops are enough.

This is what the stepping into your style process I teach looks like: it doesn’t look like options for options’ sake, but it looks like ruthless curation, easily mix-and-matchable, and distinctively me.

And if you want to learn how to create your own wardrobe that’s distinctively you, I’m offering free training on doing just that.

Okay, let’s pull back the closet door…

In my everyday, I combine these tops + bottoms in more ways than I’ve documented here (can’t you just see that pale melon-coloured top with that stripe skirt or that deep blue with a black maxi skirt?)

So today, I’m challenging you—can you pinpoint what pieces in your closet have the most mixing-and-matching abilities?
