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

#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.…
