Happy day, dear reader! It's official. I am two months into my summer capsule, (and part 2) and 60-ought days into the #100outfits100days challenge. Does that even make any sense? It seemed like a good time for a check-up to take stock of how both of those are going. Capsule I looked in my closet… Continue reading Summer Capsule Update!
Happy day, dearest reader! Here in the US, Back to School season is in full swing! It seems that no sooner are we through the 4th of July, than the back to school merchandise starts flooding the shelves. Retailers expect to pull in over $82 Billion (Yes, billion with a B.), with more than a… Continue reading How Much Is Enough for Back to School?
Happy day, dear reader! The summer wedding season is upon us, often closely followed by pregnancy season... I am happily married, and NOT expecting (Those days are loooong past!), but I find it amusing that as soon as the pregnancy test comes back positive, young couples start looking at little tiny shoes, baby furniture, and… Continue reading Need a Maternity Wardrobe?
Happy day, dear reader! Whew! I can't believe it's a week into July already! Summer is running away from me far too soon. And I thought summer would go more slowly once I wasn't teaching... Ha! It's been about a month living with my summer capsule, and so far, so good. I have been quite… Continue reading Summer Capsule: One Month In!
Happy day, kind reader! This is a backtracking kind of post... Sometimes I get so excited about an idea, that I start out before thinking things all the way through. (Anyone else out there with that problem?) This happened recently when I started a series of posts about Style Staples, those pieces I look for… Continue reading Building Basics
Happy day, dear reader! Hope yours is full of only pleasant surprises... If you've not visited before, welcome! Lovely to meet you! This post is a continuation of the summer capsule intro I started last week. Yep, I am a capsule wardrobe geek, although I understand they are not for everyone. Broad Strokes/Themes Denim Diva… Continue reading 2018 Summer Capsule (Part 2)
Hope your day is happy, dearest reader! We are now well into June, and my summer capsule is sorting itself out. If you've been reading any time at all, you'll know that I am a capsule wardrobe fan. For me. I don't push capsules on my clients, because capsules aren't for everyone. If you are… Continue reading Summer Capsule 2018
Wishing you a happy day, dear reader! For us in the U.S., the Memorial Day long weekend (bank holiday) is the big summer kickoff! So, hot on the heels of my 80/20 Capsule experiment, I am starting my summer capsule. The planning started about two weeks ago when I pulled my warm weather clothing box… Continue reading Summer Capsule, Here I Come!
Happy day, dear reader! Well, I am two months into this 80/20 Spring Capsule experiment, so it's time for another update! Caveat: The pictures you see here are all just me and my iPhone. No fancy lighting. No editing. No filters. No Instagram husband. Sorry! Real life. Not lifestyle. Clearly I need to spend some… Continue reading 80/20 Capsule Update (Two Months In)
Happy day, dear reader! Many of our shopping and wardrobe attitudes and habits come from our upbringing, which is a great reason to get a handle on poor shopping habits, unless of course you want to share them with your offspring! (And their offspring. Ad infinitum...) I wrote last week about a shopping question that… Continue reading Dress it Up or Down
