the one with a Floridian capsule wardrobe

My last capsule wardrobe faded into thin air, if you hadn’t noticed. Moving from below zero temperatures to year round spring and summer will do that to a capsule. But I never lost faith that I would come back to it, and here we are.

I started a capsule wardrobe during the fall in Indiana to save money as Christmas came. But it’s become a lot more than that for me. I’m not a minimalist, and I don’t necessarily have a wish to be more minimalist. I do wish to have more long lasting pieces – quality over quantity – but I think some things can be both. My main concerns are materialism and wastefulness. I was those things in a lot of ways before ,including my wardrobe.

My plan is to have 2 capsules a year during our time in Florida. One for easy breezy outfits during warm weather and one that can have a little layering. I’ll revisit that in July. But I’m not concerned about repeating outfits so I have faith it will work, and ,for that reason, I will keep it at 37 pieces for this round. So far I’ve got 32 . . . and I’m leaving a few pieces open until I really learn my grab and go pieces for my first floridian capsule wardrobe.

springbottomsGuess what!?! All of them are from Old Navy. I’m nothing if not predictable. The black jeans I actually have in grey, but they aren’t available in grey anymore. Sadness. I left a spot open for a pair of jean shorts just in case.


The reason I left out the shorts for now is because I’m wearing lots of skirts lately. I also think they’ll do better in the capsule that needs thicker materials and layering.

springdressesI’m going to wear this green dress a thousand times because I’ve had it for so long that I think it might be time to say goodbye after this.



Just a couple pieces to layer on those days where it’s rainy and cold in the afternoon.

springtopsFor the tops, I wanted lots of short sleeves and tank tops with a few dressier shirts in easy, breezy fabrics. There’s also a spot open for my favorite sweatshirt that I forgot to take a picture of, oopsy!

I’ve never been a big shoe girl. I know. FOR SHAME! But I just haven’t been so this is the easy part. neutrals with just a couple fun pairs.

Are you doing a new capsule? You know I love to chat capsules so share, share, share!

    Great choices! I love shopping at Old Navy, especially for Summer clothes. Their shorts are my favorite! You seem to have this Florida wardrobe thing down! Lots of shorts, tanks and flip flops. Layers are great for our bi-polar months like right now. It was in the 90’s earlier in March and the past couple days have been chillier!

      old navy shorts fit like no other don’t they?! Florida is not as bi-polar as what I’m used to haha I’m still giggling at my neighbors when they were jackets at 60 degrees. I’m sure i’ll get over it real quick tho.

    Love the pieces you’ve picked out! I lived in Florida for about a year and can verify that light, breezy fabrics will serve you well. Everything you picked looks perfectly Florida to me. I’m trying to finish up my spring capsule this week – you’ve definitely given me some new ideas!

    I’m not a shoe gal, either! I think it’s because I have ridiculously big feet and I have a hard time finding cute pairs of shoes! I would be lying if I told you I wasn’t jealous of your year round spring/summer weather! 🙂

    Thank you for a Florida capsule wardrobe! Everywhere I look, the capsules have too many cold weather clothes. It’s nice to have at least one winter outfit for traveling to other places, but aside from that, it’s mostly shorts and dresses here.
