5 Easy Outfit Combinations That I Love

After nearly a decade (!!) of documenting my style evolution on this blog, I’ve settled into a simple aesthetic built around classic wardrobe staples I love. I really jive with the idea of a daily uniform, and I’m happiest with an edited closet of neutrals, denim, structured outerwear and quality accessories. I recently realized that I wear a variation of 5 different easy outfit combinations through the week. There’s nothing revolutionary here, but I thought…

Style Files: What I Wore Last Week

Last week is kind of a blur: Chad took a week-long trip to Canada, and I kept myself really busy with work at the shop and chores around the house to distract myself from missing him too much. I crashed hard this weekend and spent both Saturday and Sunday hanging around the house in my PJs, watching tv, and taking allll the naps. We have a short work week because of the holiday, but with…

How I Remixed 30 Wardrobe Basics Into 30+ Easy Outfits

Remember when I started a 30×30 wardrobe remix challenge back in June?

Style Files: I’m A Capsule Wardrobe Convert

We’re nearly halfway through my 30×30 remix, and at this point, I think I could happily live out the rest of the summer with this pared-down wardrobe.

#30x30Remix: My First Week of Outfits

Things are off to a great start with my summer 30×30! I’m enjoying getting dressed for work in my little makeshift mini-wardrobe in the laundry room, where I stashed my 30 pieces on a rolling rack to avoid any distraction/temptation from other stuff in my closet. There’s something about pared-down options that really jives with my brain; in the case of a capsule wardrobe, it kickstarts my creativity and makes mixing-and-matching fresh outfits a breeze.…

Style Files: What I’m Wearing Lately

This is the most random of roundups of my #OOTD selfies: a few are from this week, and several are from last month that I forgot to upload. You can spot the oldies by the empty concrete planter; I finally got a pretty fig for her! The common theme of my weekday uniform right now is easy blouse + jeans (mostly these from Everlane) + cute sandals. I mentioned in a recent post that Zara…
