Spring/Summer Capsule Wardrobe: Five Tops for Work

Spring/Summer Capsule Wardrobe: Five Tops for Work from Honey and Smoke Studio



We're back with another installment of our Spring/Summer Capsule Wardrobe. If you missed the first two installments, you can find them here: Five Dresses for Work and Five Dresses for Play. Today I'm focusing on Five Tops for Work. The five tops that I chose are fairly versatile (3 solids and 3 patterned blouses) and appropriate for a more casual office setting. They can be dressed up by adding a cardigan or blazer on top or pairing them with a pencil skirt or dress pants on bottom. Or you can keep it comfy by wearing any of these tops with jeans, linen pants or a more casual summery skirt. See details for each top below.

Today we're continuing our Spring/Summer Capsule Wardrobe mini-series with five dresses for play. If you missed our first post of the series (Five Dresses for Work), check it out HERE. We're feeling a BOLD color palette this spring/summer, with a base of navy and pops of bright red and green.

BRB, Gone to Colorado!


Bye, y'all! I'm headed to Colorado for an extended weekend to visit old friends/roommates who now live in Denver. We'll also be spending a couple days at a cabin near Breckenridge. I'm super excited for this much-needed vacation and the chance to catch up with some of my best friends. Today, I thought I'd share a little gift I'm bringing for my friends who are hosting me in Colorado, followed by some other ideas for host/hostess gifts.

BRB, Gone to Colorado! from Honey and Smoke Studio - Host/Hostess Gift

Since these are some of my outdoorsy friends that I used to go camping with AND since we're going to be staying at their family cabin, I thought this Cabin Porn book was the perfect gift. It has some seriously dreamy photos of woodsy cabins from all over the world. I paired the book with a bamboo cutting board shaped like the state of Georgia (where they both were born and bred before moving to Colorado) so they could have a little piece of home in their new state.

Some other ideas for cute host/hostess gifts:

BRB, Gone to Colorado! from Honey and Smoke Studio - Rooftop, Saturday Candle from Catbird NYC
Go the traditional route and get your hosts a luxurious candle, like this Rooftop, Saturday scented candle from Catbird NYC. Jazz it up with some cute matches like these constellation matches from LEIF.

These key rings would be a fun but practical gift. You can even customize them to say whatever you would like.

BRB, Gone to Colorado! from Honey and Smoke Studio - Travel Memories from Designlovefest
After your trip, make a coffee table worthy photo book of your memories for your host or fellow travelers, like Bri from Designlovefest did after a birthday trip to Marfa with friends.


I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend. I have posts lined up for Monday (we're starting a new monthly series!) and Wednesday and I'll also be sharing about my trip later this month so STAY TUNED.

XOXO
