I’m starting to think my idea of owning and wearing easy, breezy, throw-on summer dresses is a fantasy lifestyle thing!

Curating a really good functional summer capsule has been the biggest sartorial challenge while working on my style. This year I’ve been happy with a mix of new and old (see Finds below for the core of the capsule) that is composed of light weight performance fabrics and linen pieces. It’s all tops and shorts or pants bottoms, even though the plan was to source some shirt-dress style dresses!

I wouldn’t be adverse to adding a summer dress, but I’m not actively searching for one, anymore. In fact I’m pretty sure I’m ‘done’ shopping for summer items.

What’s your summer formula? Are you team dresses and skirts, or tops and shorts/pants?
