You may have noticed that wardrobes are appearing here are NOT in the order in which they were requested. I work on almost all the wardrobes simultaneously (yes, my hard drive hates me), and I post them as I finish them. Your wardrobe request has NOT been forgotten; some are just more difficult than others.

Don't hesitate to post a comment with a specific wardrobe request. I will do my very best to choose beautiful things for you...

  2. Once again a beautiful wardrobe! You nailed the colors.

  3. I would wear everything you selected. Such beautiful colors!

  4. Beautifully done! If you could just magically plop it into my closet I would be such a happy woman!

  5. Great capsule! Anyone wearing these clothes would absolutely blend into that painting. xxBliss

  6. I have been following your blog for a while and enjoyed your themed capsule wardrobes. This is one of my favourites so far. My colouring is "Summer", so I loved this, with all the blues and watery themed prints.

    My favourite items are the green coat and the green grass umbrella. It is really playful and is perfect for the rainy English summer we are having here in the UK.

    You would definitely stand out in a crowd wearing those two items.

  7. This was also my request and you chose absolutely lovely items!!! The different blues are especially stunning. I can see this capsule working together with the earlier soft grey one. It also brought a much needed glimpse of summer on a very rainy first day of school here in the northeast! Trish
