Don’t get too excited, I’m not starting my “10-item Summer (capsule) wardrobe” experiment yet. I just wanted to FINALLY wear this dress yesterday since it was up in the low 90’s. I know, right? Luckily that was just a spike and temps are back down to the mid-80’s for a while, but man…it was hot. AND, as was out running around yesterday, I contemplated my pretend capsule wardrobe for summer and thought of some amendments.
First, I can’t imagine wearing my Elizabeth Suzann silk pants in 90+ degrees. I will actually try it, just to see, but the thought of it just makes me hot. And I have upper thigh rub, which I can’t imagine will be “pretty” in silk pants. Just saying.
Also, I forgot how sweaty and yucky I feel after running around in the heat, which means it’s not possible to wear things as often as I’d like to before washing. I will try and extend things by spraying them with febreeze or something, but laundry is another thing to consider when creating a summer wardrobe.
I’m still having fun thinking about it though, and the idea of challenging myself to do it is sort of thrilling 🙂
Oh, and in case you were under the impression that I’m a “fashion blogger,” I present to you yet another real outfit at the end of a day. I’m in between manicures (I do them myself, but give my fingernails some time to breathe in between), and my hair is rather disheveled after photos, errands, adding new items to SLOWRE, etc. But, this is real life, not just the internet…
