Navy and Hot Pink: A Capsule travel wardrobe based on 2 scarves

I received a very specific request for a travel plan that was mostly navy, but accented with hot pink, and which wasn't "stodgy".  This plan built on a "core of four" in navy: pants, skirt, cardigan and tee, and tossed in a navy dress too.  A white tee shirt, a bright cardigan, and a couple of whimsical tops negate any possible worries about being too mumsy...  Some fun jewelry, and you're away!
Promenade au Faubourg silk scarf - Hermes, silk wrap – Stella McCartney
Tee shirt - Hugo, cardigan – Vanessa Bruno, earrings- Michael Kors, watch – Mougin & Piquard, pants – Lucza London, loafers – Brooks Brothers, bag – Solomon Appollo,  suitcase - Rimowa
Necklace – J. Crew, dress – Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti, earrings – Rebecca Minkoff, bracelet – J. Crew, pumps – Jimmy Choo, sweater – Banjo & Matilda, skirt – Toast, cardigan – DKNY,  navy blouse - Mango,  sleeveless top – Haute Hippie, ballet flats – Bloch


  1. Prrettay. Luv this combination. Don't know if I would want to wear a top with a big heart on it..although you say it is for whimsy. Have to have some fun sometimes I guess.


    1. I might be more comfortable with a Pink/Navy striped T. Wouldn't that work?

  2. I am planning my Chicago travel wardrobe I get closer to the end of May, I might need your advice about the weather!!! I know it has been cold! But, I want to wait closer until I leave! Thanks!

  3. I think this is a wonderful capsule. I would substitute another navy and hot pink sweater for the sweater with the big heart, but the rest of your picks I love. I plan to send you information about several of my scarves and ask for capsules. You are a wonderful resource and a treasure on the internet. Thank you for ALL of your posts.

  4. I love your blog! It has helped me put together things in my closet in ways I NEVER would have thought of. Even though the outfits are simple and classic, some of the colors and accesories are just amazing!! Thank you!

  5. Your outfits make me want to save up for a lovely Hermes scarf!They really make the difference between ordinary and chic.

  6. Thanks so much for your wonderful website. I have been visiting it for months and I finally got to put into practice the capsule wardrobe plan. You have made it much easier for me to look put together when I run out the door each day. I appreciate you :)

  7. YOu have such a great eye for colour and style.
