Hello Lovelies!

Back in January I introduced the 9 Pieces | 9 Outfits Capsule Wardrobe blog to you, and in July did a 9 Pieces | 9 Outfits Maternity Capsule blog. Today I’m bringing you a fresh Summer Capsule Wardrobe full of gorgeous pieces you can mix and match ’til you heart’s content!

Don’t let the name fool you, although I’m showing you nine outfits, you can make LOADS more with these nine pieces! These core nine pieces are versatile, comfortable and fabulous! And don’t forget that the easiest way to mix up a capsule wardrobe is to add accessories! Although I have kept accessories to a minimum (as they are not included in the nine pieces) with a high rotation to show versatility, investing in a collection of good quality accessories will give you even more options when styling.

LOOK 1:

Nothing says Summer quite like white denim. Fresh, crisp and flattering – don’t shy away from embracing white jeans (this isn’t America and you CAN wear it after Labor Day)! Although we’ve been told our whole life that darker colours are best for curves, I disagree – find a nice denim with stretch and flattering cut and voilà get that white denim on your body!

LOOK 2:

In Look 1 you saw white denim dressed up, now in Look 2 you see it styled a bit more casually with double denim (blue jacket) and a pop of pink. So fresh and flirty! The double layer of the LaLa cami not only is super cute, but is great at camouflaging a larger bust too!

LOOK 3:

Every girl needs the perfect throw on and race out the door dress. If you want to change things up, layering a coloured or patterned lightweight shirt over the top changes the look and adds sun protection or a little extra warmth on a cool Summer night. The mustard colour of the Hello Girlfriend Shirt is just gorgeous, and so Summery, but not for everyone so if you need something a little more subtle it also comes in a floral print.

LOOK 4:

Think outside the box! Tie or belt your dress over your white denim for a completely different look. Statement earrings add pizazz! Flats for casual or heels for dressy and you have the perfect outfit for almost every occasion. The Eve dress is my absolute favourite Mama Dress ever (I also have it in Khaki, featured here in a Play Date to Date Night Blog), it is flattering, versatile, breastfeeding friendly AND can be worn as a tunic #Winning!

LOOK 5:

Now it’s time to take your dress up a notch for date night or drinks with the girls. Just add a denim jacket, statement earrings and some heels and you’re good to go! How amazingly cute are these Ziggy earrings, lightweight and fun you need one in every colour for this Summer!

LOOK 6:

We’ve had jeans and a dress, now it’s time to bring out the skirts! This gorgeous linen skirt is the perfect weight and length for summer and so easily dressed up or down. It looks perfect paired with mustard and tan (just don’t forget to tan those legs!).

LOOK 7:

Have you ever heard the saying “Leopard is a neutral”? Well it’s true! Leopard goes with EVERYTHING and looks the bomb paired with the natural colour of the linen skirt. The stunning cape is so flattering and so easily taken from beach to bar, OSFA it’s really generous and would suit a size 8 to 20!

LOOK 8:

Is it Summer without a maxi skirt? Not only is the print and ruffles of the Indah maxi skirt gorgeous, the front split makes this perfect for curvy shapes like me who are easily overwhelmed by long skirts/dresses. Showing leg is always a winning trick to balance out a bigger bust/fuller tummy.

LOOK 9:

Don’t think you can only pair your flirty maxi skirts with heels or sandals, add some sports luxe to your outfit with a denim jacket and white kicks. Not conventional but oh so cute! The black Camilla tank has featured in a few other outfits, and is seriously so flattering! A nice v-neckline and double layered front, not to mention thicker straps so you can wear a normal bra! Perfect for day to night dressing, and also comes in white if you like a brighter/fresher look!

Additional Accessories:

Now 9 pieces including accessories and shoes is just. not. doable. Well not in my books anyway, but I have kept those used today to bare minimum for those who prefer a limited wardrobe. But! Remember that accessories are the easiest, cheapest and non size related (i.e. you won’t size out of them) items to joosh and change any outfit!

You.Rock.Style BAKER FLAT $49.95 (Sz 38)*

You Rock Style Celeste Heel $109.95 (Sz38)

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Dainty Ballet Slip White $70.00 (I have wide feet and had to size up one size to an AU8 as these are quite narrow, but the size up is comfortable)

TSID Clothing Ziggy Earrings – pink $29.95*
