Living with a small wardrobe: Some May Capsule Looks

I am finding that so far I have enough clothing for Spring in my new location so my shopping has been for accessories, lingerie & sleep ware and some clothing for warmer weather. I continue to struggle with getting the value contrast correct and with silhouette. At least the colors in my wardrobe are flattering now LOL. As you can see, I lead a very casual life! One thing on my shopping list though is a multi-purpose nice dress that isn't black so I'll be able to dress it up or down.

In May by chance I wore 34 items - 5 pairs of shoes, 8 pairs of jeans/slacks/capris, 13 tops, & 7 cardigans/jackets/vests. Add in a purse, 2 scarves, 15 pieces of jewelry, 5 coats/jackets, and various exercise & sleep wear. The weather varied tremendously so clothing ranged from a down jacket to tank tops!

  1. You look great, nice outfits. I'm finding that I wear trousers/jeans most days and capris if the weather is good. I wore a dress to go out to a restaurant last night for the first time in ages. The one hing I'm short on is jackets so I'll have to keep my eyes open for one. Accessories are key.

    1. I agree that accessories make such a difference and as a bonus are much easier to shop for! Good luck finding jackets.

  2. And can I say you take great "selfies". I wear crops most days but in the summer heat I always wear dresses as they are cooler. But Ineed shrugs to go with.

    1. I need to try on some shrugs as they are such a great solution in hot weather.
