  1. Absolutely love this post! Your taste is so elegant and refined – but fun, as well! The fact that all items are at a very reasonable price point is a bonus. You look fantastic in every outfit! Please do more posts like this.

    Love your choice of color. I need a capsule wardrobe for a trip I have planned. So, if you had a trip to Paris planned in October and would be staying for 3 weeks what would you pack? A few fancy dinners would be a part of this trip and a lot of sightseeing

    1. Oh gosh, 3 weeks in Paris! How wonderful!! I would probably bring a lot of black – pants, skirts, simple elegant sweaters, a white shirt, and then accessorize with scarves. And of course one little black dress. Be sure to under pack so you can buy things there… šŸ˜‰

  3. Good timing as we have a trip to Boston to visit some sites in September and was just thinking of what to take to wear. I’ve always a fan of shorts with long sleeve tops or sweaters…my husband not so much.
    I’m short as well but I learned that a transitional long linen sweater/cardigan goes with anything and helps in a those days between summer and winter. The long length works well even with shorts.
    This new line from Walmart looks great. I so hope they can mix in more “cotton” fabrics.
    Love the tip on the shredded jeans!

    Great ideas and you look great too! I hope we all agree with the over 100 degree weather we’ve endured in Texas, that it is time for an early fall!

    Thanks for the great ideas. I LOVE the striped blue and white blazer/shirt in the “extras” so I ordered it. Love that it comes in XS!

    Blessings,

  6. Thanks for these wonderful fashion ideas. I am short also (barely five feet) so these capsules are very helpful.

  7. It might sound silly, but capsule wardrobes are exciting. I worked in a very conservative profession for 35 years, and I didn’t realize it at the time, but my wardrobe was a bit of a capsule. A young intern said to me how great I always looked and that I had never worn the same thing twice! I just smiled. Now that I have been retired for some time my wardrobe has taken a more casual look, and I have eliminated many items from my closet. I have started curating some updates to my fall/winter wardrobe and have added a grey cashmere turtleneck sweater and a pair of black lug soled loafers. It’s really been a fun journey making the transition. I love mixing higher end items with less expensive finds as well. We are taking a fall driving trip, and I am already planning my capsule wardrobe as we like to travel light. We recently took a 2 week trip to Italy, and I managed it with just a carry on and a tote bag. Thanks for all the Wal-Mart inspiration.

  8. I like the denim skirt but wish it were longer.
