Memorial Day weekend has come and gone, and that means it’s officially time to break out our warm-weather wardrobes. And if you’re like me, that part of your closet might feel a little bit…lacking right now. Sure, I have some cute sundresses and jean shorts from last year — tried and true standbys — but I’m itching for a few fun new pieces to add to my summer look. To make your life just a little bit easier, I’ve rounded up five of my favorite summer fashion trends (including some really fun accessories) that are fit for the upcoming months. Happy shopping!
The countdown is ON! I leave for Italy in just over a week and I could not be more excited. I’ll be traveling in Rome and Florence before heading to Tuscany to wrap things up by teaching our Styling Your Life workshop. I fell in love with Italy last summer when I went for my first time. It feels like a dream to go back again! But what to wear?? Here’s my packing list for Italy in case you need some summer vacation inspiration!Continue reading “What to Wear in Tuscany: My Packing List for Italy”
I’ve spent a lot of time in the last year thinking about how I can minimize my wardrobe, consume less, and also give you guys some inspiration and ideas on how to do the same. Embracing a minimalist wardrobe hasn’t been a cake walk, that’s for sure, but I’ve become really passionate about it and want to keep challenging myself (and you!) to keep it up.
There are a lot of ways you can start “going minimal.” For me, I think the best approach to buying things more intentionally is to take baby steps. I kinda learned after 2018’s shopping freeze that not buying things is easier said than done, but it was fun and totally worth it to become a more conscious shopper.
So, if you’ve been wanting to do something similar, but haven’t been sure where to start, I’ve put together five different ideas for minimalist wardrobe challenges. Some of these ideas you may have heard of, others might be totally new. Either way, I hope you give one a try. And not only to learn to consume less, but to also learn something about yourself in the process!
I hope you all had a truly magical, wonderful holiday season! I ended up taking the rest of last week off because I just plain needed a little bit more time to myself. But now I’m ready to jump back into the blog and share what we’ve all been waiting for… my final update about my No Shopping Challenge of 2018! I shared a bit about it on Instagram, but it’s time for a full recap.
Does your household wear matching holiday pajamas on Christmas morning? If there is one holiday tradition that I still love as an adult, this is it. As a kid, my and mom would splurge on pjs just for this occasion. Usually the pajamas were matching, but sometimes not… mostly they were just really cute pjs with a holiday spin to them! And, while this goes against everything my reduced waste, minimalist brain believes in… sometimes you just really want festive pjs, amiright??
It’s been a hot minute since I shared an update with you about my No Shopping Challenge! Between the kitchen renovation and planning the wedding, I haven’t really had the time, energy, or resources to do much shopping… which is sort of awesome because it’s really helped me to get back into the groove of this challenge. The last time I checked in, I had slipped up a little over the summer with my shopping and was hoping to get back on track. Let me just say… having all your money wrapped up in a renovation is a great way to avoid buying new clothes!
Fall is, without a doubt, my favorite season. I love the crisp air and the changing leaves, I love the hot apple cider and cozy blankets, I love making hearty soups for dinner and I love updating my closet with all sorts of cool, cozy things. At the beginning of fall, more than any other transitional season, I really crave an update to my wardrobe. It’s a great time to add to your stockpile of basics as well as to try out a few new trends. Joanna asked me to curate a list of fall fashion trends because she’s still on her No Shopping Challenge kick. So with that in mind, I’ve highlighted six key fall fashion trends with a round-up of great options for each… because you know ya gurl loves to shop!
