5 pieces 1 outfit : colorful shirtdress

Hey friends! 5 pieces 1 outfit is a twice monthly series where we feature 5 pieces that bring together 1 perfect outfit. It doesn’t take a lot of time, money, and or pieces to create a fashionable look that anyone can create. 5 pieces is all you need to make another outfit killer. First, I find it’s best to have a theme so you have a place to build from. That can be a color combo or maybe even an event. But most of all you just need a good base piece. This week’s theme is a shirtdress with tons of colorful accessories.

This week’s theme is a spring trends.

There is the saying not to try too many trends in one outfit, but I think it works out pretty well in this one. One shoulder, laser cut, ruffles, cut offs, statement earrings, pink, pastels, scallops, and espadrilles are all huge spring trends. In 2017 anyway! I happen to love them all so I decided to throw them all into one outfit.

5 pieces 1 outfit: winter to spring

Hey friends! 5 pieces 1 outfit is a twice monthly series where we feature 5 pieces that bring together 1 perfect outfit. It doesn’t take a lot of time, money, and or pieces to create a fashionable look that anyone can create. 5 pieces is all you need to make another outfit killer. First, I find it’s best to have a theme so you have a place to build from. That can be a color combo or maybe even an event. But most of all you just need a good base piece. This week’s theme is the transition from winter to spring.

Winter to spring is always a hard transition. It’ll be cold in the morning, but too hot for a jacket in the afternoon. Here in Florida, the bugs also start coming back out in a hurry. The easy choice to fix all these problems is a jacket. But that leaves no room for accessories when you’re only rocking 5 pieces. My favorite way to work around that is lots of florals and bright colors. Pair that with some skinny jeans and open toe booties and you have the perfect spring outfit. Then just add your jacket when it feels more like winter outside.

My date night formula is simple. A nice dress to show off a little skin, my favorite of the moment shoes, a small purse, some earrings, and then finish it off with a simple lip.

I’ve always thought myself to be a little curvy for a jumpsuit especially in the tummy area. But lately I’ve really been wanting to try one out, and I figured cupcakes and cashmere is a great brand to start with. Especially on valentines day in a sleek black color. Black thins you out so it must be perfect for something that might accentuate your tummy troubles, right!? Pair it with some red accessories along with a bright red lip, and it’s perfect for a fancy valentines day dinner out with your boo or your ladies.

the one with a vacation capsule

When I booked our flights to go home I reserved 1 large checked bag and 1 carry on bag. I figured that plus backpacks for under our seats would be plenty.  We can buy diapers once we’re in Indiana and we’re breastfeeding. So other than clothes, Jack only adds a noise machine, a breast pump, and a carrier. The car seat will not be packed, and we’re not taking the stroller (maybe I should tho?). But I forgot about presents. I have to somehow get our presents home. So we’re all going to be on a capsule wardrobe. Especially mama and daddy whose clothes take up quite a lot of room.

I’ve done the capsule wardrobe many times, but never for a vacation. So I was little lost. After some research and some pinteresting, I came up on the 5,4,3,2,1 idea and decided to make it my own for this vacation capsule. With the 5,4,3,2,1 idea, you take 5 of the main item and go down from there. For me the main items were tops, bottoms, shoes, and jackets (since we’re going North). Then I just needed accessories. So my list looks like this 5 tops and 5 earrings. 4 bottoms/dresses and 4 shoes. 3 jackets and 3 bags. 2 sunglasses and 2 necklaces. 1 hat and 1 watch. vacation-capsule

 hexagon sunglasses . coach sunglasses . hat . watch

Most of the time I’ll need to be dressy, casual so jeans and nicer tops were the way to go. The dresses are for when I need to be dressed up. I chose some dainty jewelry to wear during the day and a few statement pieces for the dressier times. The jackets I chose are mostly for warmth and to add over the simple shirts I’m bringing. Jackets are great finisher pieces  when you need a simple, warm outfit. I almost didn’t bring 3 bags. Jack will be with me the whole time as far as I know so I’ll always need the diaper bag. There is a chance we’ll go see a movie after he goes to bed (while grandma stays with him), and the clutch doesn’t take much room.

The rest  I think is pretty self explanatory! Have you ever done a vacation capsule?
