A Transitional Capsule

August 19, 2022

A transitional capsule collection for the waning days of Summer… So excited to share my picks from M.M.LaFleur’s latest collection!

Because of San Francisco’s mild weather, I embrace transitional dressing year-round, making light layers the hero in my closet. And there is no layer more versatile than a blazer, especially one in a light neutral like beige melange. I’ve paired the Yiyan blazer with long trousers (and made the suit more casual with sandals) and wore it over my shoulders with a midi-length Jeannine dress for a more classic look at work:

A capsule collection is never complete without one standout item – a piece that’s modern and trend-forward while still feeling approachable and effortless. The Cassandra dress is it for me! I love the slightly narrow cut at the shoulders (with lingerie snaps no less!) and the beautiful midi-length shape. Wear it solo as a dress for a desk-to-dinner type of day, or pair it with wide-leg Milo jeans for a fresh weekend look:

While almost everything else in this capsule is neutral in color (versatility, always!), the aloe-hued Nejvi top adds dimension. It has the most beautiful drape and ultra-flattering asymmetrical gathering at the waist. The best part: there are two completely different ways to wear it. You can tuck it into high-waisted bottoms, or leave it untucked. With its wrinkle-resistant fabric, the Nejvi is also perfect for work travel:

Rounding out the capsule with some essentials: my favorite jardigan in ivory (to wear with the wide leg Milo jeans seen above!), a stretchy, striped pima cotton tee and classic pumps in taupe:
