A capsule wardrobe for mom

My mom asked me to make her a capsule wardrobe.  I thought you guys would be interested in seeing it too. The main colors are gray, navy, pink, mint and purple. She doesn't like skirts so there are just pants and a maxi dress.She doesn't wear sleeveless shirts because she's always cold. There are no bags, shoes, accessories and jewelry because she has a good selection of that already. And every piece is under $50! I'll go through every piece and do some outfit ideas. There's a carousel at the bottom with the pieces in here and similar items.  I picked basic pieces that can easily be mixed and some with great details.
1. Denim Jacket $29.75-49.99   2. Bomber Jacket $29.99   3. Purple Sweater- similar $13.99
4. Gray Cardigan $ 15.99   5. Layered Look Sweater $46.99   6. Mint Striped Shirt $34.50
7. Navy Tunic $35.99     8. Chambray Shirt $19.97  9. Lilac Blouse $12.59  10. Floral Top $16.99
11. Navy Striped Shirt- $3.60  12. Lilac Tee (comes in many colors) - $9.98  13. Blush Strap Tee $29
14.Maxi Dress $21 (sleeveless for $10)  15. Mint Pants (also in a great navy floral) $29
16. Pink Layered Tunic $47.40 (similar for $26.99)   17. Beauty and the Beat Tee $14.99
18. White Jeans with built in sculpting $45 19. Skinny Jeans $32 20. Boyfriend Jeans $30

Love what you came up with! I think this concept is so interesting though I am not sure I could ever do it myself.

How fun! I have tried a capsule wardrobe and it just isn't me. I have learned though to really pay attention to what I like and what I need and make thoughtful purchases now! These are really great options you chose though!
