The seasons are changing and so are the wardrobes. I actually don’t have to do much to my wardrobe this year, as I did a pretty thorough capsule wardrobe for myself last year, but both of growing kids definitely do! I’m dedicating this post to Alex‘s wardrobe since I had so much fun doing it. The idea behind a capsule wardrobe is to keep the idea of minimalism in mind, only buying pieces that match. That’s precisely what I do but if you have kids, you understand that one pair of pants just ain’t happening. I absolutely have to buy a pair of pants per day of the week. Alex loves to play in the dirt, eat paint, rub almond milk on his legs, you name it. HIs clothes are trashed by the end of the day, so I definitely only get one wear out of them. Even with pants for every day of the week, I have to stay on top of the laundry, but I have to do that for my husband anyways, so I don’t mind. The other thing I want to mention is that with my kids, I have to find the right balance between cost of clothing vs cuteness. I would love to spend lots of money on the cutest clothes ever, but in reality, he’s probably going to poop up his back so, I like to keep it all fairly reasonable. Here’s a look at what I came up with for fall/winter 2016.

The possibilities are endless. For this week, I decided to highlight something I did recently for a client. A friend of […]
In my experimental make up days, pre babies and pre thirties, I tried all kinds of makeup trends. I would use different colored eye liners, bright eye shadow colors, red lips, and of course, the smoky eye. I would use a variety of colors like greens, purples, grays, browns, you name it. I really […]
One of the things that I’d really like to do here in this blog is show you how I style things and make a capsule wardrobe work. What really makes or breaks an outfit are the accessories that you add, the way you style your hair, and of course, makeup. It may seem intimidating, but […]
