Summer Capsule Wardrobe
I’m in Flagstaff, AZ for the 5th summer in a row. Now, there’s something about Arizona that you should know if you don’t know already. Arizona has one mountain and that mountain town is called Flagstaff. We’re up here at 7,000 ft elevation and we get all the seasons. Spring, Winter, Fall, and Summer.
Summer up in Flagstaff is pretty crazy. It goes from being 85+ degrees (which doesn’t sound like a lot to Phoenicians – but when you’re about 6000 feet closer to the sun – it get's pretty toasty) one minute and the other it’s a downpour monsoon storm. So, after years of living here. I learned to be prepared for every season.
When that comes to creating a capsule wardrobe, that makes it a little bit tricky. So, you’ll see some sweaters in this seasons capsule wardrobe and even some pants. Just incase Flagstaff wants to throw me off my game.
My Summer capsule looks like this:
3 Shorts (denim, khaki, fancy)
2 Pants (denim and army cargo pants)
3 skirts (striped, green, maxi)
4 tank tops (white, denim, teal, burgundy)
2 t-shirts (black and white)
2 long sleeved shirts (white and peach)
1 denim vest
1 denim jacket
1 green army jacket
2 dresses (striped and green floral)
2 pairs of sandals (black and beige)
2 tennis shoes (Converse and running shoes)
2 heels for fancy occasions
1 baseball cap
In total that’s 31 items of clothing in my closet that I will wear for the whole summer! I only had to buy one white tank top this season because my luck with white shirts is the worst. So, $10 at Target for an entire season’s worth of clothing isn’t too bad at all! Saved me a ton of money.
