Capsule Wardrobe - Breton Stripes

street style


I've been slowly trying to build a capsule wardrobe, as some of you may know I am on a mission to minimise my life, I still have a long way to go but at least I'm going in the right direction. It's made me think a lot about my personal style, what works and doesn't work for me and how I can still have fun with fashion. My wardrobe is in somewhat of need of an update but I am taking my time, trying to apply less is more and therefore really questioning my purchases.

A personal favourite though has to be a Breton tee, paired up with jeans and it's always a win.  So I thought today I would go with this classic style and put together one of my favourite combinations of my Nine West Blue Breton with my Karen Millen skinny black jeans, anchor & crew necklace and Dr Martens shoes. It's simple, chic and perfect for a lunch out in the city.

There are a few other pieces I have in mind to add to my wardrobe this summer and that is a playsuit of some sort, a pair of dungarees, some ethical tees and I am tempted to try a wider jean or culottes. My main goal this year is to have a wardrobe that is cohesive, with most of the pieces working well together meaning lots of options and different outfits but with less clutter and more direction.

Are you trying to minimise your wardrobe and style and put together a capsule wardrobe? If so what are your summer staples and items you cannot live without?

  8. I love a breton! And although I find the idea of a capsule wardrobe really appealing I'm just not sure it's for me. Be interested to hear how you get on though!
