Well, I wasn’t planning on writing a roundup of the items included in my spring capsule, but it was requested on Instagram so I’m happy to do so! I usually just go off blog and Instagram data on high-performing topics to decide what to write about, and my winter capsule roundup wasn’t one of my most popular topics. But I’m always thrilled to be proven wrong and hear what you’re all interested in!
Some (most?) of my spring capsule – had some things in the wash when I took this photo and made a few slight changes since.
Not to get too meta and blog about blogging, but just briefly – the feedback from people who follow me or check my site is so helpful! If I write something and don’t get any feedback, whether that be through blog comments, Instagram DMs, whatever, I usually scrap that topic for the future because I assume it was something that didn’t resonate with people. So anyway, if you follow a blogger and you like a particular post of theirs, definitely let them know! Sometimes it really can feel like I’m throwing things against the wall and seeing what sticks. I also personally like reading blogs, but I know a lot of people get most of their content from social media these days, so I also try to be mindful of how I allocate my time to creating different types of content. Long story short, I appreciate you all asking for this post!
But back to the topic at hand. My spring capsule wardrobe was so much fun to put together, so I’m excited to hear that you want the full list of items. Spring and summer is my favorite time for fashion – I teeter somewhere between minimal and coastal (but not “prep”) style during these months, and it’s definitely the time when I feel the most myself when getting dressed.
Because of this, I was less regimented with my spring capsule than my winter capsule – I am actually not sure how many items I set aside, so I guess we will find out right now.
As a reminder, some of the links in this post are affiliate links, and if you shop through them I may earn a small commission on your purchase. I’ve also listed the name of the item or have tried to describe it as best as possible, so it can be Googled if you prefer not to shop through my links.
Hope this is helpful and illustrative of the clothes I’ll be styling over the next few weeks!
Spring Capsule Wardrobe
Sub_Urban Riot “Love Your Mother” Tee – I bought this at a local boutique here in Connecticut called The Dressing Room, and I love it! It felt appropriate to include since April is Earth Month.
Jenni Kayne Cashmere Tee (no longer available, similar here)
AYR The Deep End in Sesame Stripe – I love this shirt. It’s oversized, comfortable and the color is a cross between tan and blush. One of my more recent purchases and I couldn’t be happier with it.
AYR The French Fry in Rose Quartz
Dôen Peasant Blouse in Blush (old, similar here)
Cait Shea T Top (no longer available)
Jamie + the Jones Blank Canvas Top in Black
Sanctuary Button Front Top in Navy and White (old, similar here)
Emlee Wrap Top in Ivory (old, similar here)
VETTA Capsule Boyfriend Shirt (old, similar here)
Tradlands Linen Button Down in White (no longer available)
Babaà No35 in Natural – I love this sweater.
Jenni Kayne Cashmere Cardigan in Oatmeal – this sweater was a major splurge for me (who do I think I am?!) but I have to say, it is incredibly comfortable and I wear it a lot. Jenni Kayne isn’t a slow fashion brand, though you may see a lot of minimal bloggers wearing her pieces. Not too many brands are focusing heavily on neutrals this spring, so this tends to be a go-to brand if that’s your style.
Tradlands Jude Pullover Sweater in Surf – I love the color of this, I’m not sure if they have plans to bring it back.
Eileen Fisher Donegal Sweater (old, secondhand)
Quince Cashmere Cardigan in Gray – Can’t go wrong with a classic cardigan. Quince is affordably priced for cashmere and I have had a good experience with the quality.
Tonlé Sweater Zero-Waste Sweater (old, in stock here, but love this style, too)
Everybody & Everyone Cropped Flare (gifted) – code KELLIE15 for 15% off 🙂
Abercrombie Distressed Straight Leg Jean (old, similar here)
Vetta Capsule Tapered Linen Pants (old, no longer available)
Aritzia Slit Skirt (secondhand, similar style here)
Devan Gregori Stella Shift Dress in Oyster (gifted)
Tradlands Nico Dress (gifted, color no longer available, similar here)
Able Nico Swing Dress – Same name, different dress. I love how lightweight this dress is, and it is a little trendier, which is fun.
Jenni Kayne Leopard T-Shirt Dress – Can’t go wrong with a little leopard print.
Abercrombie Ribbed Polo Dress – Some Y2K style, but keeping it neutral.
VETTA Capsule Striped Jumpsuit (old, no longer available)
Thirty items on the dot! And as usual, there are a few things I’m still debating on if I’ll include or not, so I’ll keep you posted! Sometimes you just don’t know until you start wearing things how it all will work together. I picked…a lot of stripes…and the weather here is pretty variable. Sweaters are sometimes relevant through May, but sometimes not, so we will see how it all plays out and if I have to swap any of them after April for some lighter pieces.
I plan to wear this capsule for less time than usual – just up to Memorial Day, the unofficial start of summer.
Thanks for reading! xx5
Loved reading this! Thank you 🙂
PS What size did you take in the Able Nico Swing dress? I love it!
Thank you Meg! I got it in a small, which is my usual size! I’m 5’3″ for reference.
I can’t wait to see you style your spring pieces! You have some amazing pieces!!
Thanks Katie! And thanks for reading 🙂
