I've started to build a capsule wardrobe for spring. The "big reveal" video is being produced by Mode Media, and should be ready soon, but until it is, I'll be dropping in outfits from the project to get you thinking about a dressing system for spring.
Many of my working friends don't like to shop. They find clothing shops stressful and are always asking me,"What 5 pieces do I need for spring." I listened and I'm here to help. I'm starting with this spring. I broke it down to 10 pieces that can create 10 outfits.
Let's start with the first outfit. Tank + jeans. What could be easier? Not much. The olive tank can work right now all the way through summer. Distressed jeans are so trendy and I love the youthful energy of them.
Here are the 10 pieces with links:
1. Distressed Jeans
2. Olive Tank
3. AG denim A-line skirt
4. Calypso St. Barth hoodie cardigan
5. Splendid tie-dye tee
6. Splendid Black t-shirt
7. LOFT olive vest
8. White denim shorts
9. Cabi Fresco Dress
10. Cabi white sweater

With the jeans I added a western style belt and some black booties. Both are more than a few years old. I do believe in investing in good shoes and belts, because they last and last.
To make it a little grown up, I used a HUGE scarf from Theodora & Callum (current styles are available at Anthropologie, mine is a few years old) and tied it as a scarf. This style also makes a great beach cover-up. Once you know how to do this tie, you will be inspired to get your old scarves out this spring and reinvent them.
Because it would take me about 10,000 words to explain how to do this, I made a video instead. Here are the video instructions:
Crystal clear on the instructions? If not, let me know. I'd also love to know if you are into the capsule trend!
