10 Pieces: 12 Outfits

Capsule Weekend, Casual outfits Mix and Match, www.hannaleestyle.com/casualweekendcapsulecapsule

This weekend casual wardrobe capsule is a beautiful example of mix-and-match heaven!

p.s- all these outfits could easily be dressed up replacing the bottoms with a dark denim, black dress pant or bold-print pant!  Remember, the key to creating a wardrobe capsule you’ll love is the versatility factor.

p.s.s- if the swazer isn’t your  (style) replace it with a waterfall cardigan. Voila!

Whether you’re walking miles around a new small beach town this weekend or checking out museums in the city, all these outfits work with a cute-but-comfy shoe!

If you want to switch the shoe, most of these outfits will work perfectly with your favorite sandal!

How to Look Put Together When it’s Too Hot

What do you do if the temps are too hot to wear a blazer but you need to still look absolutely professional? Add a vest of course!

Whether it’s a structured vest like above (this was once a blazer) or a flowy vest like below, a vest is an essential to every capsule wardrobe collection I curate for my clients and myself!

It’s an easy addition because it’s lightweight and yet completely pulls the entire look together.

Remember, style doesn’t have to be complicated or fussy- sometimes it’s just one piece (like this vest) and an outfit completely transforms!

The #1 Shoe to Wear to Weddings & Showers

A lot of women are often stumped around shoes. Especially when it comes to special events and what shoes go with what.

The easiest solution when wearing dresses?

Choose a shoe color that’s either metallic (metallics go with everything!) or a shoe color that matches your skin tone to elongate your leg.

Notice how my legs are immediately elongated and the overall outfit looks cleaner?

Mindful Shopping

Just as I work with my clients to mindfully shop (And why I plan so carefully when shopping) I want to remind you: 

I share these shopping links with you in hopes to help you, not to encourage you to buy for the sake of buying.

We’re so bombarded with consumerism and buying all day long- I do not want to be that in your life. As you know (if you’ve been a reader of mine for awhile) I strongly believe in versatility and making life easier (because we do get dressed every day).

While sometimes I want that ridiculously fab red wedge, I know myself well enough to know that I want an absolute (easy) mix-and-match wardrobe; then for myself and most of my clients, I’ll stick to the neutral shoe colors like metallics and nudes.

If you think a versatile nude shoe will enhance your existing style, shop them here.

Notice the shoes?

How to Wear: Jumpsuit Three Ways

Jumpsuit

Jumpsuit: Versatility at it’s best!

I’ve been living in this jumpsuit lately and here’s why. 

I love dresses just as much as my clients do- for good reason- they’re one and done. Put it on and done! You’re good to go.

And, considering I’m on the go, helping people buckle their shoes, running around stores and seeing best hem lengths- dresses aren’t super practical for me so I love this jumpsuit. (My version of a dress. One-and-done.)


Just like a blank canvas, accessories & jackets transform this simple staple piece.

Add a vest and a necklace. Re-wear your wedding shoes to add some fun to an all-black look.


Keep it casual with a denim jacket and platform Keds. Voila!



As always- add a scarf!

Work: Add a blazer, belt it and your favorite work heel.

How to: 15 Ways to Wear Denim to Work

How to Wear Denim at Work, Hanna Lee Style, www.hannaleestyle.com/blog

As more work environments become increasingly casual, I’ve been helping many clients navigate the world of denim and how to wear it (appropriately) to work.

I always suggest a dark, clean denim.  However, you know your work environment better than I and maybe light denim is acceptable when outfitted professionally.  When in doubt- wear a dark wash.

In an effort to help you with outfit ideas, I’ve created this free guide.  Click here to download the guide (no email or left arm required..it’s one simple click!)

Don’t trust my outfitting skills? (come on! I’ve been doing this for a decade) but I like sneak peeks too so scroll on down if you want to see a sneak peek of some of the outfits.

Simply enjoy!

The Ultimate Packing Checklist: Long Weekend Capsule

Capsule Wardrobe Packing 101:
Packing for a long weekend: warm weather.

AT A GLANCE: A CAPSULE WARDROBE IS A GROUP OF CLOTHING THAT MIXES AND MATCH TOGETHER. 

As you know I love mixing and matching and it’s why I am such an efficient packer.  I always try to pack in a carry on!   Before you pack for the weekend determine your activities (wine tasting with girlfriends in Michigan? Chasing toddler around and swimming as much as possible?)

Ultimately your activities will determine your packing but I’ve found this “Long Weekend 15” to both versatile enough to cover all your bases (aka if you’re traveling with kids or without).

Use this Long Weekend Capsule checklist to help you pack efficiently and most importantly- have a fun weekend!

Look at the difference between the camo pant and dark denim. Just with one switch the outfit looks completely new. (You could change your earrings and scarf if you wanted to change it even more!)

Keep or Toss: 7 Easy Questions to Ask Yourself

If you working on building a beautiful mix-and-match wardrobe capsule collection; here are the ultimate seven questions to ask yourself when wondering if you should toss or keep.

7QuestionstoKeeporToss, Hanna Lee Style, www.hannaleestyle.com/blog

7 Simple Easy Questions to Ask Yourself When Struggling to Toss or Keep

1.  Does it fit? (If you find fit confusing..head over here. Before & Afters included!)
2.  Does it mix and match with my existing wardrobe?
3.  Do I feel comfortable in it (if you keep *trying* to  make a piece work- ditch it! It’s a sign it’s uncomfortable)
4. Would I buy this right now if I were out shopping?
5.  Is it damaged? (and worth the repair if so?)
6. Is it reflective of me?  My personality?
7. Do I love it? (*See my note below).

If easier mornings and a simplified closet sounds good to you, consider a wardrobe capsule collection here.

Denim Jacket: 6 Foolproof Outfit Ideas This Weekend

DenimJacket:5WaysToWear,HannaLeeStyle,www.hannaleestyle.com/outfits

Someone recently asked me if a denim jacket was a staple. Absolutely!

I love the classic look of a denim jacket and its versatility; pair it with a dress to make it casual or add it to your favorite print pant.

Wondering if it seems too young? Not at all.  My client ages range from 35-67 and my 67 year-old client is rocking her Johnny Was denim jacket and I love it.

While I love denim, if you need a dressier jacket option check out  “If You’re Going to Buy One Jacket This Year..” I really wear both denim and my faux leather often but I do believe you can dress up a faux leather jacket more.

If you buy one jacket this spring, summer buy this one

A faux leather jacket should absolutely be in your wardrobe arsenal.  I practically live in my faux leather jackets and swear by these for layering quickly and looking put together.  

Here’s an example of how I wear this all.the.time.

Let’s get back to business why it’s one of my favorite pieces (faux leather). It’s SO incredibly light and as someone that runs really warm

Unfortunately I’m having a difficult time finding a pink one but I did find a few cute pink faux suede options (I recommend leather over suede but if you’re really wanting a blush pink I’ve included a few!)

I’ve done all the work for you here. Happy Shopping!

Did you know I’ve been professionally shopping for a decade? Crazy!

Whether you dress them up, (layer under a vest), or dress them down- I promise you won’t regret this piece in your capsule collection.

p.s-I cannot tell you how many compliments I receive on this. Most people think it’s super luxurious. It’s not.  It’s one of my best Rich Style, Real Budget finds to date. I really avoid fast fashion and do feel a bit guilty but I did buy this from Forever 21 years ago and it cost around $25 (shameless plug: if you’re not on my newsletter list yet- sign up! When I find serious scores like this I share ASAP).
