Summer Trends + A Minimal Wardrobe

Just about a year ago we remodeled our master bedroom, bathroom and closet space so we could turn the outdated, confined layout into something more functional. The end result is a cozy modern room, a walk in closet and a bathroom with a glass shower and freestanding tub. Since the renovation I've been striving to focus on a life of minimalism and that includes my wardrobe. In fact, I've slowly worked on transitioning my wardrobe over to a capsule wardrobe. For those of you wondering what this is, a capsule wardrobe is a collection of a few essential items of clothing that don't go out of fashion; think skirts, dresses, classic jeans, black pants, button down shirts, t-shirts, blazers, coats, loafers, heels and boots. Neutral colors, neutral tones.

I'll admit, I love fashion, but I'm not one to always jump on board with trends in the fashion world. In fact, the older I get, I've noticed that I stick to the same styles of clothing and I've developed a daily uniform. On most days, you can find me in comfy jeans, slip on shoes or black & white Nike's, a basic t-shirt and sometimes a blazer with rolled-up sleeves. My makeup and accessories are minimal, diamond earrings and a couple gold rings, and I always have an over-sized black tote bag on my shoulder. But sometimes I like to switch it up, especially if we have plans or are going out.

You can easily add trends into your capsule wardrobe, but the key is not going overboard. By picking a couple trendy pieces each season, you can still keep your wardrobe minimal yet up-to-date and fashionable. This dress above is a perfect example! When eShakti contacted me and asked me to try a piece from their collection and review them, I was thrilled. eShakti is a clothing company that focuses on customized clothing. So when you choose an item you can customize the sleeves, neckline, length, and even whether you have pockets or not. I absolutely love this concept!

I decided to go with a current trend and picked an off-the-shoulder black dress. This off-shoulder ruffled cotton poplin shift dress is absolutely perfect for summer. Pair it with lace up sandals or wedges and you are all set for a night out or a casual afternoon. This classic piece is flirty yet easy-going and extremely comfortable. To be honest, I had a difficult time choosing just one article of clothing. There were so many that caught my eye and below are just a few of them that would compliment a minimalistic wardrobe.
