This is a capsule for hot summer days, running errands or doing non-messy projects at home. Short sleeves or sleeveless. We do have AC but are judicious about using it.

I used to think that capris were more visually "shortening" on me than bermudas but I have changed my mind completely. I decided to try some capris that would fit the same place in my wardrobe as Bermuda shorts. I got them in my usual neutrals of light grey, blue, black, and all in petite sizes. I was hoping I could mostly use tops I already had to keep the budget down. I found a lot of tops that seem to work. The only top in this collection new this year is #3. There is a lot of interchangeability in this capsule which is good! Thinking of duplicating the blue capris.

#1 and 2 blue/green top, grey capris
3 white top, grey capris
4 blue/grey top, grey capris
5,6,7 same tops, blue capris
8 white top, blue capris ( top needs a tank under it)
9 black top has lace back, blue capris
10 royal blue top, blue capris (this would probably look better wit the grey capris)
11 ikat top, blue capris
12 black print top, black capris

Didn't get to the footwear plan yet but I have sandals that will work.

would love to hear your votes on which combos looks best, the pant length in general, and I have a couple of specific questions
- Is the blue/green sleeveless top in #1 & 2 too short in the front? It looks that way to me.

- The buttons on the hem of the black capris look somehow not too stylish to me...but I can't put my finger on it. If I don't like them I could swap them out for black ones.

Thanks in advance!
