capsule wardrobe no. 1 {what i’m wearing this summer}.

{if you missed my post last week on my capsule wardrobe project, check it out here!}

as i mentioned last week, i’m trying out something new this summer when it comes to my wardrobe: a capsule wardrobe. as a quick reminder, this means that i’ll select and wear only 37 pieces {including tops, jackets, bottoms, dresses, and shoes} all summer long {from May 15-August 10} and i won’t shop at all until it’s time to prep my fall capsule at the end of summer.

today, i’m finally revealing what’s in capsule wardrobe no. 1 – the summer 2015 edition!
