A Spring Capsule Wardrobe, from "Ma To-Do List : Dressing"

Back to my new favorite French fashion book, where I found four capsule wardrobe suggestions for each of the four seasons.  I intend to show you all of them...

But first, a quote with which they open this section of the book, from Angelica Huston.

"It's easy to think that you don't have anything to wear, but this is really a problem of identity.  If you have a well-developed self image, you know what is "you" no matter what the trends of the moment."

9-piece spring capsule wardrobe from "Ma To-Do List: Dressing"
Rain jacket – Helly Hansen, leather jacket – Versace, chinos – Phase Eight
unlined jacket - Brian Dales, scarf – Tildon, white cotton shirt – Comme des Garcons, watercolor 
tee shirt – Mango,  silk blouse – Nina Riccijeans – Closed
Neiman Marcus Last Call (Neiman Marcus)


  1. I do NOT need another rain coat. I do NOT need another rain coat.....

  2. Thank you for sharing the Anjelica Houston quote...I absolutely love that!

  3. my favorite colors!!! :) no wonder I love this set

  4. Your choices are amazing -- so perfect. I was immediately drawn to the Versace jacket and Nina Ricci blouse (no go, unfortunately). I'm new to your blog and love it. I'd mentioned in a reply to someone's comment on this blog the other day that I love turquoise, pink and cream for summer and, in a happy coincidence, you're showing clothes in those colors that I can use for ideas. Thank you, Janice. Your blog is a pleasure to read. And I hope the patient you're caring for is improving steadily. --Susan

  5. Beautiful patterned tops! And the colour of those jeans is amazing. So pretty! I like how you've included a rain jacket too - essential for Spring as it's been jolly showery of late.

  6. Ode to spring!! If only that were my season. I wish this were my wardrobe.

  7. What lovely colours! Not mine but so spring-like.

  8. Oh yes! These colors make my heart sing!
