I was fascinated to see how much these wardrobes became versatile this month; when a wardrobe gets to about 10 garments or so it seems to be the critical mass…
So this is your “dial-up warning;” there are lots of images here!
Here’s the first scarf and color palette:
As always, I’m assembling simple outfits with timeless garments that can be worn through the summer, and can be mixed in with other items in a wardrobe…
I so easily could travel with this:
This heroine’s new garments are quite versatile…
Would this be a fun color palette for someone with greying hair? I find this idea very tempting…
A pretty tank top is such an easy way to brighten things up…
This makes me smile….
So many options…
This is such an usual combination of colors, but it works so nicely…
Such a range of possibilities – nothing predictable!
This color palette is really timeless, with plenty of accent possibilities:
I could travel for a long time with these pieces…
I could work for 20 years and not come up with this color palette… but it’s lovely, isn’t it?
I love brown and turquoise together!
Even though this is a small wardrobe, it’s not at all boring!
Do you think I was right to include the green with this palette? So far, I’m happy with how it’s going…
This palette feels sophisticated and somewhat understated to me…
You could dress appropriately for LOTS of things from this:
Right now, if I were forced to wear 1 of these for a month, I do NOT know which I would choose… I think that’s good!
Which do you like the most, this month?
I love the look of first one, and I especially like that you put gold jewelry with it. However, I could never wear it, I need more muted colors. The last one is my favorite, it is so close to what I actually wear and I am going to try to recreate it from what I already have, it will be fun and maybe help me figure out what pieces I am missing and give me new outfit ideas. And yes, the green is perfect.
I vote for the last wardrobe as well.
It’s around here that it becomes hard to choose (or stick with) a favourite because the variety of garments makes each capsule appealing. None of the colour schemes are for me personally so I’m having fun deciding which *kind* of wardrobe I like best. They each seem to work well for different personalities and lifestyles. Lots of food for thought! I’m always impressed by the care that goes into selecting accessories appropriate for the scarf and style of clothes too.

Wow its a full on artistic Hermes inspired scarf wardrobe!
I love many of these…the more conservative colours speak to me.
You are such an inspiration!

I love the first one, Rosace de Janos, probably because much of my wardrobe is already like this! I did buy the Equipment Skirt you posted. I was able to get it at less than half off by stumbling onto a sale on the website. I love it. So sophisticated.
Thanks for building these wardrobes. It’s so clarifying.

Oops! I meant I got the skirt for MORE than half off! Jackpot.
Good for you!
Aaahhh! The first two color wheels are my two favorite color combinations. And I have been wanting to get into stripes in particular, as featured in the first pallate. Thank you for the springboard!!
The navy wardrobe is definitely more my style and I quite like the bright violet colour, but I would add both the grey and beige wardrobes but change out all the other accent colours and replace them with the dusty pinks, greyed blues and pale yellow that are also present in the appaloosa scarf.
Still love the purple and navy so much.
I love the beige! (and I can’t wear beige anywhere near my face) – nancyo
The peach and gray is my favorite, by far.
