For the last month I have been working with the Birds at Birdsnest putting together an 8 piece Capsule Wardrobe for a Spring/Summer Getaway.
I’m so excited to share with you the 8 pieces and the different ways you mix and match the pieces. I picked 3 tops, 2 bottoms, 2 dresses and one jacket.
I managed to photograph 10 different outfits and I could have kept going but I actually ran out of time – by the time this post goes live I will be in China walking The Great Wall. All that we do I will share in a blog post when we return.
I tried to keep the accessories to a minimum and just used pieces that were already in my wardrobe – for shoes a nude pair of heels, white kicks and a pair of metallic flats and for handbags a tan crossbody bag and a tan tote. You can swap these out for whatever you have already.
I kept the colour pallet red, white and blue, this way all the piece seamlessly interchange with each other.
A denim jacket was a must have for me – the one I have chosen is light and has lots of stretch so gorgeous to wear.
Size wise in all pieces I have stayed with my normal size 12 – the only one that I did size up in was the Ally Shift dress. I wanted to make sure that there was plenty of room for my size 12 E chest.
I picked white jeans instead of my usual blue jeans as they have such a beautiful fresh look – these are called Boyfriend jeans but I found that they are aren’t as loose as you some styles. I actually prefer this as the looser style tends to make me look bigger, a slightly more fitted looked is much more flattering on me.
