Earlier this year I participated in my first ever 10x10 challenge. It was such a cool learning experience and I really enjoyed exercising my styling muscles throughout the challenge. So I was a little bummed that I didn’t jump in on the fun for the summer challenge.

I definitely wanted to share more about the 10 key items I picked for my summer capsule wardrobe and I thought what better way to do that than to style some outfits!

10 outfits to be exact.

what's new to the capsule: summer

Having a successful capsule wardrobe starts with awareness. It's pretty improbable that any of us will create the perfect capsule wardrobe, no matter how long we've been making them, because it's impossible to foresee what life's going to throw our way.

I took my own advice this season and paid close attention to what I was reaching for day in and day out. I didn't make a list, I just kept track of my thought process while getting ready in the morning. And I started noticing patterns.

It’s that time of year when the mornings are hot and the afternoon is hotter! I’m stoked for my first summer in Sacramento and looking forward to seeing how my capsule holds up in this heat.

I shared about my capsule wardrobe process and made a wardrobe planner (!!!) a couple weeks ago. Today I’m breaking down how I used my planner to build my summer capsule plus giving you the full look at this season’s wardrobe.

Bring Your Own: Cup

green living, bring your own, coffeeAlex Hood2 Comments

Summer is here which means it’s iced coffee/lemonade/horchata season (at least for me). Iced drinks are a double whammy when it comes to waste because they usually come in plastic containers with a disposable straw. We're not focusing on straws today because I believe in baby steps. I’ll talk about straws in another post. For now, let's just focus on bringing our own cups.
