Building My Spring Capsule Wardrobe with Thred Up & Swap

The time has come!  The wardrobe update for Spring will be happening this next month!  Warmer weather, lighter clothes, brighter colors…. AH!  I have been working on part 3 of creating a capsule wardrobe, and I thought it would be more fun to post about my upcoming capsule than my past winter items.  So, as I have been shopping around for items to wear during the upcoming months to fill the holes in what I already own, I am gravitating towards secondhand or  ...

Sometimes, at the end of winter, I like to go to my favorite greenhouses just purely for therapeutic effects.  But this trip yesterday was actually for work purposes- how cool is that?! When shopping for greens, I go to my two favorite local shops.  One being Edwards Greenhouse, where we went yesterday, and the other being 36th Street Garden Center.  The jungle-like atmosphere is good for the soul, not to mention the hair and skin!  I also greatly appreciate the merchandising of both shops-  ...

9 Months

This little mischievous munchkin had other plans for me when I was setting up her 9 month photo shoot.  These pictures capture her personality perfectly these days- the toddler mentality is already shining through with little tantrums when she gets something taken away and I can just hear her saying “I can do it myself” if she could talk.  Oh boy!   On a sweeter note, Lucy is babbling all the time and is very smiley!  The last few days she has been giggling  ...

Creating A Capsule Wardrobe, Part 2: Closet Clear Out

I never thought that feeling more put together and more stylish would mean getting rid of my clothes, but clearing out the closet has been imparative for me to feel my best!  If you’re following along with the capsule wardrobe creation, we are at step two which is where the work really starts.  It’s getting nitty gritty here with the actual clear out and I’m pretty embarrassed to show you the before picture of my closet.  It had become quite the sty!  ...
