It has been excruciatingly hot here in Austin. High temperatures in the 100's and lows in the 80's means we are all dying, and don't even get me started on the mosquitos! The best thing about summer in Austin, however, is all of the summer fashion. Any other season of the year, it's typically too hot to wear all of the cute new styles, or the great classics, but summer is our time to shine, so I thought I'd share with you all a cute little linen romper I've been wearing non stop.
Recently snagged from the huge sale going on with Anthropologie, this little linen has become a staple in my wardrobe. Now, I know what all of you are thinking, "Ami, that isn't capsule wardrobe," but oh contrare my friends. This romper while maybe more "trendy" than most capsule pieces, was well-made with quality fabric, incredibly comfortable, and will come back for next summer.
Here is my little philosophy on capsule wardrobes, if you think you will wear it next year, if you think it will hold up until the next year (and hopefully many years after), then I think it fits the capsule wardrobe label. The thing with capsule wardrobes is that they are very tricky, especially in a world in which most pieces of clothing can hardly last until the end of the current season. We have no idea what our bodies are going to look like next year - maybe we gain a lot of weight, lose some, get pregnant, or hormones shift and our body shape changes. It's not realistic to plan a strict-capsule-wardrobe when you don't know what your body is going to look like. *stepping off soapbox now*. Here are some photos of this gorgeous summer romper.
