Spring is finally here! In Upstate New York, you never know what the weather will be. The mornings can start off damp and cold and by the afternoon it can be sunny and 70 so layering is key. This spring wardrobe capsule has some great transitional essentials and timeless classics that you can wear year after year. Scroll down to see my spring wardrobe capsule pieces and click the thumbnail photos to shop.

What is a wardrobe capsule?

A capsule wardrobe is a collection of clothing items that can work together to create multiple different outfits. For this capsule I chose a lot of neutral, classic pieces that never go out of style so you can get the most use out of them. Think basic tees for layering, button down tops, classic jeans, linen blend dresses, etc. This is just to get you started and certainly you can add your own personal style to it.

Here is a checklist to guide you as you start to create your capsule.

Coastal Grandmother Style

Coastal Grandmother Style is the new trend for this summer and I am here for it. Think Diane Keaton on “Something’s Gotta Give” or Meryl Streep in “It’s Complicated”- breezy whites and linens, perusing the farmer’s market then coming home and cooking dinner with your local produce in your open kitchen while enjoying a glass of wine. (Click here for the perfect Coastal Grandmother Drink)

And because I’m all about aesthetics, check out another fun vibe, How to Live a Tomato Girl Summer Aesthetic.

I have been in love with the Coastal Grandmother aesthetic since I was little and saw Father of the Bride.  I dreamt of living in that house and having a kitchen with my pots and pans hanging from the kitchen ceiling. Which is why whenever I’m cooking I listen to Nancy Meyers Kitchen on spotify.

Coastal grandmother is a feeling of carefree relaxation and being effortlessly put together. It’s being the ultimate hostess, having a bowl of lemons on your kitchen counter, making a delicious meal and having vases of fresh hydrangeas from your garden.
