Go for the GOLD! Wearing another $8 tee from Universal Thread! This time I added a cream blazer, raw hem jeans, strappy heeled sandals, and fun accessories! I’m currently obsessed with these sandals! The perfect shade of taupe, soft, and very comfortable. They also come in black…thinking I might need those, too!
I literally can not get enough of this t-shirt…and my adorable helper! 😍😍😍#thinkhappy
I recently engraved my bracelet with the words “Think Happy” as a daily reminder to choose joy over worry, love over fear, and less over more! My little helper would agree that happy is the best place to be! It’s funny how an $8 black and white striped tee can add just a little burst of happy to your day!
How cute is this cropped gingham top??? I’m obsessed with this print…and this top has a cute bottom up detail in back. Looks great paired with a bold gold statement necklace and cuff. Would also look great with simple accessories, shorts, and flat sandals.
Wearing a Universal Thread v-neck (http://shopstyle.it/l/x6Zt) in XS olive. I have a feeling this tee is going to be on repeat! Add white denim, a jean jacket, and rose gold accessories for the perfect ‘Olive + Rose Gold’ look!
Happy Valentine’s Day! Wishing you extra Love & Happiness today. Who else snagged this cute Love & Happiness top from the Loft when it was on major sale? Perfect for days like today. And, these earrings complete the look and will be a fun pop of color all spring and summer long!
First of all, what is a capsule wardrobe? A capsule wardrobe can be created by limiting the contents of your closet–purchasing staple pieces and purging items that go unnoticed for months or even years. It’s not always true that more clothing = more options. In fact, most of us reach for the same items again and again and the unused items fade away in our wardrobes taking up valuable closet space. A major advantage to creating a capsule is saving time when deciding what to wear. Often too many choices creates too many choices! There are several ways to go about creating your own capsule wardrobe. Here’s one way…
Begin by sorting your clothes and accessories into two piles. “1. Items I can’t live without” and “2. What the heck was I thinking”?
From the first pile select your favorites. Think 3-4 bottoms, 3-4 basic tops, 1-2 classic sweaters/sweatshirts, 1 jacket, 5 pairs of shoes, and some versatile accessories. (The numbers and styles may differ depending on occupation, climate, season, etc.)
Donate the items from pile #2
Take the 10-20 key pieces and begin mixing and matching. How many outfits can you create? Can you layer? What can be worn more than one way? How could you transition from day to night? If you do the math, these items can take you through an entire month without repeating the exact same look!
If you’re missing a key piece, think about adding this essential staple to your wardrobe. This would be the time to invest in an item that you’ll have for a long time. (i.e. Hunter Boots, faux leather jacket, the perfect pair of skinny jeans, etc.)
I selected the following…3 pairs of jeans (black, basic, and distressed), 2 t-shirts (white and grey), 1 grey sweater, 2 bell sleeve tops (black and striped), 1 faux leather jacket, 1 sweatshirt, 5 pairs of shoes, and an assortment of versatile accessories. In just about an hour I was able to create 20+ looks. Here are my favorites! (Scroll all the way down to find the links to all my items.)
Here are a few of my new and old favorite beauty finds that I use EVERYDAY! I have tried A LOT of beauty products over the years. They don’t often WOW me, but when they do, I use them daily and restock when I run out.
