5 Summer Outfit Formulas

On one hand it feels like it’s been summer for a while with everyone being home and trying to develop a ‘new’ schedule, yet in reality summer is just beginning. For the most part the kids are done with their online instruction and the possibility of safe travel is within reach, even just a day trip. Whether we’re staying home or dreaming of far off places, one of the constants that I know has helped is creating schedules and getting dressed.

Below I’m offering you both, a schedule for getting dressed! Whether you’re getting dressed every day or every few days, my Five Days of Summer Formulas will help you put together the day’s attire. The best part, most of these are closet staples! By using the outfit formula, it’s really easy to make these looks your own and adapt them to your lifestyle. I also have a free download that goes with this that you can get here. It has a convenient checklist and more links if you have any gaps to fill in. If you like what you see, these looks are just part of the Outfit Formulas™ Summer 2020 Capsule Wardrobe.

Note: Some of the items may be sold out, limited quantities available or from my closet but don’t worry, I’ve provided links to similar items!
