The day has arrived! We are ecstatic to be launching our kinder capsule Summer 2019 collection with four brand new designs. We’ve highlighted playful patterns, lightweight fabrics, and versatile styles.
Our Summer 2019 collection is manufactured in Sun Valley, California and made from organic, ethically sourced fabrics. We continue to donate partial proceeds from the sale of every garment to our charity partner, O.U.R. (read more about them here).
For the girls we have a bloomer skirt that can be worn separately or together. Fastened by buttons on the elastic waistband, this piece is every bit as comfortable as it is cute. Finish this sweet look with an adjustable spaghetti strap onesie and be on your summer way.
For the boys we’ve created an adjustable onesie to perfectly complement our pants-to-shorts design. Adjust the waistband and roll the cuffs for everyday activities that has your little one stylish yet playground ready.
We can’t wait to see your little ones sporting our new pieces. Be sure to follow us on Instagram and tag @kindercapsule + #kinderkids so we can gawk at their adorableness!
I have been working on this post for months and am thrilled to finally share my maternity capsule wardrobe for summer. Last time I had a baby bump it was end of winter into spring. So not many of the styles I wore still apply in hotter months. With that said, it’s hard to spend money on maternity clothes. They’re used such a short time and, as I found out, don’t always transition from one season of pregnancy to the next. That’s why this maternity capsule wardrobe is a bit different.
I did research and trials on the best pieces to invest in, what could be worn pre and post-bump, as well as considering the nursing-friendly aspect. So what I’ve pulled together is a mix of maternity and non-maternity. It’s all things I absolutely consider to be worth the cost. They’re versatile, comfortable, and hang beautifully on any frame. But this post can also serve as a template–meaning, it’s not only about the exact pieces I’ve purchased but the overall makeup of a maternity capsule wardrobe.
Last summer I was pretty strict on my capsule. But I’ll be honest, this one may be slightly different. I’ve never been pregnant in the heat of summer so I don’t for sure know exactly what I’ll want or need to wear. With that said, I’ll gladly update you on anything I add or swap out along the way! For now, here’s a breakdown of everything I’m planning to wear in these coming bump months.
I’ve gotten a lot of questions over the past few months about my thoughts on this whole capsule wardrobe endeavor. I started it back around Memorial Day and have been going strong ever since. With just a few additions (like this linen crop top), I’ve felt fully prepared for any outfit situation. Honestly, the main word I can think to describe this experience is liberating. As much as I love fashion, the prospect of getting dressed can really be overwhelming. With an overflowing closet it became easy to think, “I have nothing to wear.” In reality, I couldn’t even see half the stuff I owned. So, here I am, with a curated selection of items that allows me freedom of choice without paralyzing indecision.
In short, I plan to do it again for fall. At this point I have no idea how to narrow down all my cozy sweaters (hello, lifelong New Englander), but we’ll see. And I’ll learn from certain mistakes I made the first time around. For instance, I was unbalanced between tops and bottoms. I chose to include more bottoms than necessary yet underestimated the shirts I’d need. Adding this linen crop top has been a nice breath of fresh air. Produced in California from eco-friendly materials, the Sotela company focuses on values of body positivity, positive impact, humanity, and environment. Along with the other brands in my capsule wardrobe, I’m honored to represent their mission in some small way.

I feel like this outfit gets my in touch with my unfulfilled dream to be part of the ‘Clueless’ cast. Layering a slip dress is majorly reminiscent of the nineties and I’m not mad about it. When choosing pieces for my capsule wardrobe I wanted interchangeable itesm–dresses and jumpsuits that could work with a cardigan over top or a tank underneath. So I sized up on this slip dress in order to make it less bulky when I wanted to change up my look. And I adore the playfulness of this lettuce edge tee. The hemline detailing offers an eye-catching pop without being too bold.
p.s. I took this dress with us to Bermuda and it packed so well–didn’t wrinkle even when stuffed in my suitcase!
