As soon as these cooler temps hit, I want to buy all of the boots and jackets! But I am trying so hard this season to buy only what I really need, items that fit well, are made to last, and that I will love having in my closet for months to come. I am sharing this process through this series (which I will start to refer to as the #buildablewardrobe). I would love to have you join me in this effort to eliminate excess, and encourage slow fashion. I am also trying to support more small businesses and artisans like Moorea Seal and Noonday Collection.

These looks include pieces I have added to the closet or have had for a while that work well for taking your dresses from day to evening. I use navy as a neutral in my wardrobe and it is a color that never goes out of style. (A bunch of other navy dress options here.) I am looking forward to sharing more ideas with you all. I really believe in the art of getting dressed, since as women, it can drastically affect our demeanor for the day and the way we reach others. I need this reminder myself on a morning where sport shorts looked more appealing than anything;)
Cheers!

P.S. I have added a shop section to the blog above in the nav bar, where I will be adding all of the pieces I am working with in my own closet this season!

As much as I love a good pair of heels and jeans, flats are where its at for this phase in my life. My $8 pair have taken a good beating, so I have scoured the web for the best options to commit to. They are a staple in the fall, winter, and spring for me! Which is your favorite?

Happy weekend to you all!

Mary Poppins has nothing on me! It’s a dreamy tote, yes?

One of my very favorite small businesses Nena and Co. is teaming up with IHOD once again to gift one of you a handmade Lucia Caryall Tote of your choice! Nena & Co. are also advocates of sustainable fashion, and employ many women in Guatemala to make their high quality bags, totes, camera straps, and clothing from woven huipil cloth. Each design is unique!

I put my bag insert organizer right inside this beauty and it holds just about the world inside. So excited to be able to send one of you a tote of your own. Enter below, and head to instagram for one more way to enter! We will draw a winner next Tuesday. Open to international readers. Good luck! **Update: Congrats Coline Touil!
