Sustainable Summer Capsule Wardrobe

I’m quite the minimalist—in the sense that too many options and clutter overwhelms me. Each season I carefully select what items to highlight in my wardrobe and add a few classic essentials I may need to fill the gaps.

When it comes to clothing…I focus on …

natural fiber fabrics both good for my health and the environment

AND

pieces I know I will treasure for years and not grow tired of wearing.

This summer I’m pregnant with baby #3 so I know I will be living in loose dresses, but pulled together a list of my sustainable summer favorites for any woman in any season!

My Sustainable Summer Capsule Wardrobe

  1. Linen crop pants // These have been a staple in my closet for years! They are cool even on hot days and easy to dress up or down. The elastic waist band is relaxed and comfortable.
  2. Light linen dress // Made with sustainable fabric and so breezy and comfortable. This is a staple and easy to dress up with jewelry and sandals or dress down with a jean vest + tennis shoes.
  3. Jean shorts // These are a summer must have, great length if you are tall like me, don’t awkwardly hug in the wrong spots and just about the most comfortable shorts you’ll ever wear. Size down 1-2 sizes—these run large and stretch after a few wears. I bought a larger size last summer when I was postpartum and am still wearing them today at 23 weeks pregnant.
  4. Beek sandals // You will feel like you are walking on a cloud, these are investment sandals that will leave your feet feeling great even after hours of wear and they will last multiple seasons!  I’m on year 3 of hard wear and they still look practically new.
  5. Staple organic cotton tee shirt // Grab a few colors, you’ll thank me later. These wash and wear great even after years of use and are perfect for hot summer days or under a sweater in the winter. The softest shirt ever!
  6. Cleobella Midi Dress // Cleobella has been one of my go-to brands. I never tire of wearing their clothing and everything is feminine, sustainable and ethically made. The dresses are a dream to wear and something you’ll forever treasure. 
  7. Mille Stripe Linen Dress // This is my splurge item of the season as I know I’ll love it during pregnancy, postpartum and years down the road. They have the most beautiful styles and they are hand stamped at a small family factory in India. 
  8. Sun Drenched Cotton Overalls // These are so fun and breezy and made with all cotton. 

Sustainable Summer Activewear

  1. Teva Outdoor Water Sandals // Best summer investment, I joke these are the ultimate mom shoes (but really everyone needs a pair). Super comfortable, great traction and safe! My littles have the kids and baby ones too.
  2. Vuori Elevation Shorty (Biker style shorts) // I’ve been living in these as they are perfect for my growing baby bump and SO soft. I’ve been dressing them up with a loose floral blouse or a t-shirt for workouts. I love Vuori for workout apparel because it looks a bit nicer and all sustainable or recycled fabric.
  3. Patagonia Capilene Cool Daily Shirt // Made with recycled polyester this is so soft and very cool even on hot + humid days.  Plenty of stretch for my growing belly this summer, my sweet husband got this for me and I may need to ask for a second!
  4. Vuori Sunbreeze Skirt // This is such a fun edition as it is sleek, soft and so cool for hot days. Gives you that “dressed up” sporty look!
