Simplified Wardrobe Outfit #1

Ok, so yesterday I explained what a capsule wardrobe is and how I recently went through the process of simplifying my own wardrobe. If you missed that post, you can catch up on it here. Today, I am showing you one of the versatile outfits I came up with for my new simplified wardrobe. This outfit is almost all clothes I already had, just hadn't put together before....more

Simplified Wardrobe Outfit #2

Ok so I have to say that I'm kinda uncomfortable with the whole taking pictures of myself thing, but I'm putting myself out there with this little wardrobe series just so you can get an idea of how I simplified my wardrobe and the outfits I ended up with.Today you are seeing my 2nd outfit, but you may notice I have used the green scarf again.  The best way to make a simplified wardrobe work for you is to find basic items that you can wear with multiple things.  This plaid scarf for instance goes with all my neutrals....more

Reviewing eShakti: A Dress Made Just for Me

Let's say you see a dress you like, but aren't a fan of the neckline. Well, eShakti lets you switch it out to a different option. Maybe you need something more modest than the miniskirt shown on a design you otherwise love; you can choose to have it made with a longer skirt. The best part is the sizing. You can customize any piece to your specific size and shape by giving them your measurements! It only costs $7.50 to customize, but for your first order it's free. ...more

Let's Talk Toddler Fashion

Okay, let me get this out of the way first. This is NOT a toddler fashion blog. I don’t gel my kid’s hair or dress him in ironic bow ties and suspenders.I go for cute and comfy. {Which is kind of my theory on grown up fashion and home decorating too.} I don’t really like the clothes to look too “babyish” and prefer stuff that Travis or I would wear, shrunken down to kid size....more
