It’s time for another capsule wardrobe! After this post from the spring became one of my most popular blog posts of all time, I was excited to put together another capsule wardrobe for the upcoming season. I didn’t originally plan to post this in July but seeing that most of these items are on major sale now, I figured I would go ahead and share! I used only 19 pieces to create 45 different outfit combinations and stuck to earthy tones and items I could mix and match with basically everything. This time I wanted to create a video and I specifically edited it for the new IGTV so that is why you’ll see it oriented vertically if you view on Youtube. For the full experience, I’d recommend watching on IGTV. After you watch the video, I’d love to hear your favorite outfit!

I went with two plaid tops (because, #fall), a printed dressier blouse option, a black/white striped long sleeve tee, and a white/creamy mock neck sweater light enough to layer over other options! It’s amazing how many outfits you can get out of 5 tops if you keep them in the right color palette. For the plaid tops, I went for a navy/earthy tone one as well as an old white windowpane flannel I’ve had for years.
The key to this part is keeping it neutral… navy, tan, olive green (those are neutrals in fall, right?). One pair of dark skinny jeans (on sale/size up), an olive pleated midi skirt (comes in petite, tall, and regular), a tan mini suede skirt (also on sale), and some wide leg navy blue cropped pants (also comes in tall and regular). It’s possible to create 45 outfits with 4 bottoms… see for yourself here!
It can be easy to go shoe crazy once fall comes around but, the truth is, you really only need a few pairs if you choose the right ones. I went with one tall pair of boots, a shorter pair of similar color suede booties that can be dressed up or down, a more casual bootie in a dark brown, slip-on sneakers (mine are so old), and neutral flats. With all of these shoes being completely different but still neutral colored, they made similar outfits look completely different.
I hope this was helpful! I know we’re two months away from fall but I had a few people say my spring one was a little late so, in blog world, we’re always a season ahead planning and prepping. If you need me to help you find any of these options (if sold out, for example), please let me know and I would be happy to help! Don’t forget to comment your favorite outfit on the video!
