Spring Ten-Item Capsule Wardrobe Talk-Through



Welcome to the Ten-Item Wardrobe Talk-Through for Spring/Summer 2020.



I discuss each piece in my ten-item wardrobe in today's video. This process has been particularly fun for me as I move out of the nursing and maternity phase that I have been in for so long. This accounts for many of the newer items this year. Last spring I was still in maternity/ nursing clothing full time.

I have eleven core items this year... Please remember, it's not about the "ten". Ten is used as a guide post for forming the core of your capsule wardrobe. If you've been following me for several years you'll know that some seasons I have ten core items, other seasons I'll have 12 or 13 or even 9. It doesn't matter.

Let's have a look at each of the core items.

*SKYE Risette Dress code Jennifer20 for 20% off. SKYE is an elevated minimalist brand. I adore their simple, yet stylish clothing. They have excellent hem lengths and thoughtful designs.


This blue & white floral dress is from Universal Thread at Target, but it is sold out, so I am linking a similar find here from Lulu's.


White linen dress. This is sold out so I am listing two very similar options from Lulu's here and here. Here is a link to all midi dresses at Target.


Draper James Chambray shift dress I love the Parisian minimalist look of this dress and find it to be a very versatile piece. I ordered a size up.


Mott & Bow dark denim jean JLS10 for 10% off and white blouse from Loft (sold out, so I am listing Loft's blouses here).


Mott & Bow white jean JLS10 for 10% off and Neesee’s Dresses blue floral blouse


Lulu’s black floral jumpsuit This jumpsuit is so comfortable and fashionable. I just love it.


Morning Lavender jumpsuit (sold out, so I am linking to Morning Lavender's jumpsuit selection here) Another lovely jumpsuit option that helps me to look presentable. It's also very easy to move in.


This pretty Loft blouse from last season is sold out, so I am listing Loft's current blouses here.

Let's have a look at some of the extras just from this year's wardrobe.


MerSea travel wrap in grey This is an elegant and beautiful wrap that comes in many different colors.



Gingham tee shirt is sold out, but I am listing a similar gingham blouse here. (Please note: this blouse I am linking is not a tee).


This casual red and white stripe tee is a fun take on the usual nautical strips I have this time of year.


The Très Chic sweatshirt is a fun, boatneck style vintage sweatshirt. It's a fun casual look.



Let's have a look at the new jewelry. These were sent to me by SKYE.

SKYE Léa 18K gold freshwater pearl earrings Jennifer20 for 20% off. These classic earrings with a twist feature hand-wrapped 18K gold threads and lustrous organic pearls for a delicate and timeless finish.


SKYE Opale 18K gold freshwater pearl earrings Jennifer20 for 20% off. These striking earrings bring an "off-kilter glamor" to everyday looks. They feature hand-wrapped 18K gold threads and lustrous organic pearls.


SKYE Azilis 18K gold freshwater pearl brooch Jennifer20 for 20% off. This unique and quirky brooch adds an artful flourish to your outfit. It has the same hand-wrapped 18K gold threads and beautiful organic pearls.


SKYE Issey necklace 18K gold freshwater pearl Jennifer20 for 20% off. This subtly beautiful pendant necklace has the same spun gold theme. The beautiful freshwater pearls accentuate the classic look.


Lilysilk silk scrunchies

После марафона желаний, прочитала эту книгу. Очень понравилась. Начала читать этого же автора «Французкая жена», сейчас эта книга называется «Жить как Мадам Шик». Думаю, что всем женщинам будет интересно. Повествование идёт от лица девушки, которая по обмену попала в Париж и жила в семье истинных парижан. Есть ещё третья книга стиль Мадам Шик#марафонжеланий#мадамшик#madamechic#jenniferlscott#дженниферлскотт#дляженщин#forwomen#spb#спб

Comment of the Week
Kathy writes, "Jennifer,
I love seeing the capsule wardrobe. Only one piece really surprised me, an all white dress.
It just seems so highly impractical for a busy mom and homemaker. Perhaps this is for date night?"



Hi Kathy, we will see how the white dress holds up. I might shoot a day in the life video wearing it and we can see what it looks like at the end of the day. Ha! Thanks for watching :)

I hope you enjoyed today's talk-through. I'll see you tomorrow on the channel with a homeschooling tips video.

I love your spring/summer ten item collection. The white Loft blouse is my favorite.

Lillian C said...

I love following your ten item wardrobes each season - you definitely inspire me to dress a little nicer than I normally gravitate toward & I always feel better when I do! I wanted to share what I've been living in lately as I've been at home with my two young boys (ages 3 & 1 - whew!) - the Lakeside jumpsuits from Mien (mienstudios.com). They're so comfortable & high quality & so chic! I put one on and am instantly presentable! Plus, they're pregnant & nursing friendly. I love them so much, I have it in two colors! I just wanted to share since you said you love jumpsuits as well!

The Daily Connoisseur said...

Thank you, Lynn! I love that blouse too.

Lillian, Thank you for watching! I have to check out those jumpsuits!

Love,

Jennifer

I love your 10 items wardrobes. I was wondering if you could tell me sizing on the blue Target dress. Thank you.
