10 Item Wardrobe Spring/Summer 2017

It’s the first day of spring, and I am sharing my 10 item wardrobe for this spring/summer (2017).

I’m really excited about this year’s wardrobe because I got to pick out quite a few new items. As you can see in my spring/summer wardrobe from 2016, I had just had a baby and my wardrobe was a mix of temporary items to get me through the season until I lost more of the baby weight and wasn’t constantly nursing.

Here is a list of the core items I show you in the video above:

  1. Cream lace overlay dress
  2. Navy blue lace overlay dress
  3. Peach pants
  4. White pants
  5. Skinny jeans (only for spring)
  6. Grey chino shorts
  7. Denim long shorts
  8. Khaki shorts (only for summer)
  9. Pale blue sleeveless blouse
  10. Pale pink sleeveless blouse
  11. White lacy sleeveless blouse

*As I explain in the video, I tend to abandon jeans as soon as it starts to get really hot, so I will replace them with the khaki shorts once the heat sets in. 


  • T-Shirts (seafoam green, emerald green, pale rose, black and white stripe, and black)
  • Gardening clothes (Old dark grey shorts, linen khaki shorts from last summer that are a little too big, and three sleeveless tops from last summer that are a little worn or too big.)

You can also see my 10 item wardrobe for spring/summer 2016 and fall/winter 2016.

Again, many many thanks to Jennifer L. Scott at the Daily Connoisseur for introducing the 10 item wardrobe concept to me a couple years ago!

Have you given the 10 item wardrobe a try yet? What did you think?

    I found the Ten Item Wardrobe from Jennifer’s Ted Talk and immediately was impressed. I now have maybe 10 items. I haven’t counted. But I do love how easy it is to get dressed and how my clothes have room to breath in my closet. It’s fun meeting other people who also incorporate simplicity in their lives. 🙂

    Hi Angi, I enjoyed watching for video. Your baby is adorable. I just want to encourage you. I’m always thinking on how to improve my wardrobe, especially for travel. Good presentation, keep up the good work. …Denise

    Hi there, great video.. I would have loved to hear a little about why you chose a ten item wardrobe and in what ways it has benefited your life 🙂

      HI! I love the 10 item wardrobe because I find that having better quality but smaller amount of pretty much everything in life works better for me. I no longer have to agonize over what to wear each day and wonder if it looks good on me because I know everything fits and I love all my clothing. Plus I actually spend less money over all even though I buy higher quality clothing.

    Thanks for letting me know.. I like the idea of only owning items in your wardrobe you love. I have been working towards that myself. Sometimes I think choices are driven out of a spirit of compromise in these areas because of a failure to accomplish goals in other areas… like for example, I still tell myself until I get down to my goal weight I don’t want to buy any expensive clothing because then I will just be replacing it all later and that’s a waste of money. So then the wardrobe becomes more about what can I make do with instead of what I love. But I do have much less in my closet than I used to.

      I completely understand that! I have been changing sizes dramatically over the last 4 years with pregnancies and postpartum weight/loss. I did have great luck with second hand clothes that were high quality brands. So maybe check out a goodwill, or a local FB yardsale group? They seem to have a decent selection of higher quality brand clothes that won’t cost as much.

    Yes, thanks!! I do get out to do that from time to time. Thanks again for all your encouragement and inspiration! You look great, by the way 🙂 🙂
