Favourite Colour in my Capsule Wardrobe

I can't wait to share my capsule wardrobe! I've been working on it the last couple months and I almost have it where I want it. Being postpartum, I've found my body is completely different and half my existing closet either wasn't nursing friendly or no longer fit right. Seemed like a good time to buy some new clothes -- and I attempted to take a methodical approach to it.

One of the big things that helped me decide which pieces to buy was selecting a colour pallete of what I refer to as 'yummy colours'. I call this beautiful orangey-red colour sunrise but I've seen it referred to as rust, clay or ginger. I think it's gorgeous and it's my current fav, so you can bet my new wardrobe is built around it. I'm saving up for some gorgeous trousers in this colour and so far I have this pinafore, a pair of overall-shorts, a jumpsuit (of course), and a few T shirts. There's a bit of a range in tones, some trend a little more pink (clay) and some a little more orange (ginger). The yummiest spot is right in the middle, but I love to mix and match the different tones together for a monochromatic look.

I should stop and mention that I am obsessed with the girlfriend T's by Canadian brand, Jackson Rowe. This one is in oat, but I also own it in cognac. I wear a medium in these shirts, as they trend a bit larger. Order your actual size for a more drapey look. The T's are super soft and stretchy, and wash well, perfect for nursing.

It's mid June and the cherry blossoms on my tree are no longer in bloom, I'm so glad I captured some photos while they were at their fullest!
