Pantone-Inspired Mini Capsule Wardrobe

Last week this pretty Kate Spade necklace showed up as an item in my inbox and I was impressed with how well it tied together the colors from Pantone’s Spring/Summer Fashion Color Report.  It inspired by create another mini-capsule.  This version uses 20 pieces in total and we’ve shown 16 outfits to get you started in thinking about how to use the pieces.  It’s a brighter palette than the spring capsule and I love the way the orange, pink and blues all work together.  Hope you’ll love it too!

Assembly for a couple dozen pieces took 5 minutes or less.  People commented that they looked fancy/festive yet they were so easy!
