Spring Staples | Building My Capsule

Spring Staples | Building My Caspule
It has been six  l-o-n-g  months (maybe even longer) since I’ve allowed myself to go shopping. Once I closed and locked my fall / winter capsule, that was IT! I promised myself absolutely no shopping until it was time to begin my spring / summer 2017 capsule. And let me tell you, I’ve gone a bit bananas with my constant trips to Loft, Madewell, JCrew, DSW, Banana Republic, and Nordstrom to find fabulous and versatile spring staples for the season ahead.

I know we’re a few weeks into spring already, but the weather in DC is still a bit temperamental, with that said, I’m not quite in panic mode that my capsule isn’t locked in yet. I’ve been building it piece by piece, and really excited to share with you some of the items I’ve already purchased for it.



Women’s Madewell Skylark Cold Shoulder Top • Madewell • $49.50  currently a promo for $39.95
Women’s Karolyn Flat Sandal -Black • Steve Madden • $49.95  I ended up finding these at DSW for $28 (thanks to two coupons!)
Madewell Fleet Jacket • Madewell • $118  Haven’t pulled the trigger on this, but I really love the look!
Lou & Grey Striped Signaturesoft Boatneck Tunic • LOFT • $49.99  One can never have too many stripped shirts…
Modern Skinny Jeans in Vintage Grey Wash • LOFT • $69.50  I LOVED these, so comfortable, and so awesome, I ended up getting them in white too… see below
Eyelet One Shoulder Top • LOFT • $44.50  Love! Though I purchased mine in white
Women’s Madewell Cotton Denim Jacket • Madewell • $118  Goes with literally everything, jean jacket is a must!

Women’s Two By Vince Camuto Skinny Jeans • Vince Camuto • $69  I’m telling you, one can never have too many white jeans, this makes pair no. 2

Madewell is Sebs approved


For those that know me, know I despise buying anything at full price, so I’ve been stalking these items until they drop in price, even by the tiniest bit. NEVER buy anything full price at Loft. NEVER. If you can be patient enough to wait a week, I guarantee you the item will be thrown into the sale corner, with an extra 40% off.

  • I love those slip ons, but I walk out of things without a back on them (because I’m obviously a toddler)! Enjoy your denim jacket, as well. So versatile!
