Summer Capsule Wardobe Challenge

It's time once again for The Small Fabric of My Life's wardrobe capsule challenge, and this time the rules are for a seven day challenge, with only five pieces and unlimited accessories.

Since it's summer and I tend to wear a lot of dresses, I put two in my capsule, along with my romper, a skirt and a top. In order to not freeze at work, I think I will be wearing a lot of scarves, since I'd rather have a second dress than a cardigan or jacket.

For day one I went with my romper, it was quite hot and humid out, so it seemed perfect.
Summer Wardobe Capsule Day 1

My beader friend Klara invited me over for some gin and tonics and an afternoon turned evening of beading.
I made two very bold necklaces and a pair of earrings.

Seafoam Squall

Yes, that's right, my very own Stormy Sea - I'm calling it the Seafoam Squall (Squall, to pay homage to my favorite final fantasy character).

Crystialized

I can't even help myself, my neck is going to die from the weight of these.

And Klara made a necklace, but two of the beads got ruined from glue, so she wouldn't be able to sell it, and gave it to me. Super awesome.

Day two is my simply vera dress and a new beaded necklace. Nice and beachy.

capsuel challenge day 2

A new shop opened in town last weekend. Not quite a second hand shop, (but not quite new) it's full of really nice designer items, some with tags still on, at very reduced prices. So most things were under $50, but had labels like Miu Miu, Dolce & Gabbana, and Ralph Lauren. I don't think the necklace I chose has a brand like that, but it was $24 and I really love it.

Also I've reached 100 followers! Which means there will be a giveaway on Monday!* So you can look forward to that....

*Small edit, in my haste, I didn't proof read very well and sort of left out that important bit about the giveaway.

Oh Lyddie that Stormy sea necklace is breath-taking! You did a wonderful job! I love that romper on you, and the dress has an awesome print.

Elaine said...

Wow.. You really have a knack for jewelry making and not that cheap looking stuff but actual classic, chic, wearable jewelry. You should start selling them on etsy!

That is one cute romper! I recently bought one, but haven't yet had the nerve to wear it. . .

Ali said...

You make the cutest jewelry! Seriously, that necklace is so cute and has the perfect colors! So soft and pretty. :D Plus I love your outfit, you're not afraid of color at all and I wish I could wear an outfit without black like you!

Pop Champagne said...

the blue necklace is really nice and you make really wearable jewelry! I love them <3

MarchMusings said...

Like a lot of other commentors I love the blue necklace. If you ever think of selling it you'll have a bidding war on your hands :-)

Asta said...

Both outfits are just amazing (as usual). I'm so glad that rompers are back this season, they're just as cute as mini skirts but much more comfortable. Yours is great-looking and you definitely know how to wear it! Same goes for the dress (the color is awesome and so is the pattern). And the necklaces are amazing, too!

Jen said...

these necklaces are gorgeous and i can't believe you made them! my favorite is DEFINITELY the first one. and i can't wait to see all your remixed looks with your capsule challenge. it's such a great idea! :)
