Capsule wardrobe #15

Today's capsule pieces might look similar to you, I have worn this combination some time ago in spring..

For today's summery look, replacing the strong accents of orange and blue with light and soft shades. As with all capsule pieces, it does not really matter which colour they are, as long as they are neutral enough to make a canvas, or base. What pulls the look together, is the colour match of the tank top and scarf, in this case purple, but of course it would work equally well in many other colours too.

Capsules: taupe knitted vest, beige/purple tank top, white jeans
Shoes: silver Orans
Accessories: 'Belles de Mexique' PM mousseline, Lima ring and MT horn cuff
Scarf ring: MaiTai Collection (honey moyenne)
Scarf tying method: to come

  1. Just stunning, I love the tones of the scarf with that tank and I can't wait to learn how to tie a scarf like that!

  2. Many thanks, dear Tabitha. I will wait for cooler weather, and do a how-to video then :-)

  3. You're the only person I know, who can "glow" so much, while wearing cool colours! Have a great weekend, hugs, Macs

  4. Thank you, dearest Macs. The 'glow' though is due to the window I am standing next to, lol. Wishing you a wonderful weekend too, hugs.

  5. No reason to be modest - as I was talking about your inner shine/glow and so far I've never heard of a window, which can create that! :-))

  6. MaiTai, another wonderful look. I love the soft purple tones - so perfect for summer.

    Also, wanted to thank you for sharing the Pavlova recipe. Along with a little Champagne it will be just the thing for a belated but joyous Bastille Day Celebration this weekend.

    Bonne week-end!

  7. You're stunning MaiTai! I love how the scarf and top compliment each other.
    Have a great weekend!

  8. Another winning combination. I love how you are combining more patterns in your clothing w the scarf designs. The MT cuff is a wonderful accessory. Thank you. Keep cool!

  10. Dear MaiTai, Just thrilled to see that there are now 231 blog followers. I jumped on board at 35, think it was a few years ago. Have loved every one of your posts. You have a real talent for wardrobe management with panache. Hugs, Terese.

  11. You are too kind, my dear Macs. I call it my magic window, lol!

    I hope Mr Valencia is having fun with the Pavlova recipe, dear V! Many thanks for your happy wishes and lovely words, and bon appétit for Mr V's treat!

    Thank you for your lovely words, dearest booksnchocolate, Maisie and Manuela, happy you liked the look! Hope you ladies are having a wonderful weekend, hugs x
