Capsule #3 / Outfit 27
I heart this outfit — it’s another reason why I’m undeniably happy that I’m living with a capsule wardrobe. I know I say this all the time, but I just LOVE opening my closet and finding everything I need … and nothing I don’t.
On that note, I was doing some cleaning yesterday, and I realized I’ve accumulated quite the swimsuit collection over the years — but I don’t wear most of them! Some are too small, some too big, some too revealing for my taste now, some are just cheapy and worn out. But I’d been keeping them around because I paid good money for them + because I thought they might work someday. Ironic, huh? I edit my closet ruthlessly — why should it stop there? So I did the deed (you know, the one I always tell you guys to do) and cleaned out all the “too this, too that” swimsuits.
SO REFRESHING. Now I want to go jump in the pool. Summer’s not over!
Bottoms: American Eagle
Hat: J.Crew (and F21 for less)
I love your simple hairstyles. How do you get your waves to look so perfect?
I use a curling wand similar to this one: http://www.target.com/p/bed-head-curlipops-1-curling-iron-wand/-/A-14062291#prodSlot=medium_1_2
In the Fall, I’ll be posting a hair tutorial. :)
a very similar outfit is on repeat in my closet too. PS i got rid of all my clothes a couple weeks ago and i’m currently left with about 30 pieces. and i’m loving it! thanks for that inspiration :)
beautiful! :) love the simple summery look

When you say you’ve “cleaned out” your swimsuits… where do you take them? Throw them out? Donating seems less likely… (If the answer is different) When you get rid of shirts/pants/accessories, where do you typically take those?
Thanks! I’m looking for some good resources myself.
I actually do donate my old swim suits (at least the ones that are still in good condition) — but I always disinfect them first. And here’s a blog post I wrote earlier about what to do with clothes you don’t want: http://www.un-fancy.com/capsule-wardrobe-101/qa-what-do-you-do-with-the-clothes-that-didnt-make-the-cut/
I’m so so glad that I came across your blog due to http://www.dorkface.co.uk/2014/08/styleinspo.html I’ve been having a tad fashion dilemma and your blog has literally just cured me of that.
I am really loving this outfit girl. It is so relaxed but so chic, great for summer! Loving the hat. Also, good for you for purging your swimsuits! I know I have so many clothes I just need to purge, but in the back of my mind I always think that I will wear them again one day..

I just found your blog through Pinterest, and I absolutely adore your style! I, too, have more swimsuits than I need, but I just can’t part with them (most of them are in pretty decent condition anyway). I genuinely admire your minimalism and can’t wait to see what you have to show us in the future :)
