Summer Capsule Wardrobe: Week 3 Looks

July 29, 2017

Top // Denim shorts // Sandals // Wicker tote

Somehow I made it through the summer wearing only 22 pieces of clothing! Part of me didn’t believe I would be able to stretch a summer capsule wardrobe this long! Although I don’t have to use these pieces anymore, I still packed them up for trip to Nashville. After packing up 5 kids I had no brain juice left for my own suitcase….so summer capsule to the rescue. I’ll be sharing my last round up of looks next week!


Summer Capsule Wardrobe: Week 2 Looks

(Dress // Tote // Sandals (similar) // Earrings // similar watch)

These last few weeks this 22 piece summer capsule wardrobe really came to the rescue! I still haven’t purchased anything for my closet this month because I have had everything I needed. I no longer have the struggle of trying to piece impulsive purchases together. It also made packing for our Florida trip a breeze, and I’m beginning to think it’s the way to live! It was time consuming to think it through in the beginning, but the mental freedom its given me since has been incredible.



22 Summer Capsule Wardrobe

June 14, 2017



I have been holding out for years. I always viewed the capsule wardrobe as a novel and smart idea, but too confining for me. How do you choose a small collection of pieces to wear for all the occasions that might occur in a month? Well, here I am typing up a post about a summer capsule wardrobe, and I am wondering why I wasn’t brave enough to try it sooner. After asking your feedback on instagram stories about what type of capsule wardrobe to tackle, many of you requested a bold version since there are so many minimal/neutral ones you usually see. I raided my closet and scoured the web to mix old and new items to come up with 22 pieces and 30 different looks.


Bump Style Report

September 12, 2016




This was my last pregnancy style post scheduled to go up before Azelie made her early debut:) I looked at getting dressed with a baby bump as a challenge that sometimes defeated me, and other times was enjoyable to battle. This summer pregnancy was difficult to be honest, so wearing something fun was a good distraction on the waiting game.

These were a few of my favorite pieces that I have worn for the last few babes. A staple striped shirt, distressed maternity denim, trench coat (half price option), and nude heels (50% off)….that I wore for one hour before limping back into my flats with swollen feet;) 

I have been keeping it super simple with accessories. I find a few pieces I really like and and wear them on repeat. Lately it’s been this crescent pendant and bar necklace combo, with climber earrings. As far as handbags, this  Kate Spade Byrdie bag c/o goes with just about every look, is compact in size but spacious enough to fit all of the necessities. My favorite aspect is that it’s scratch resistant! (#canigetahalleluiah #canigetanamen) Here is another way I styled it.

Can’t believe we are midway through september and my little babe is here with us. Loved having her in the womb, but much happier having her in my arms. Have a great start to your week! 

31 Dresses No. 10: That yellow number.

that yellow dress


I am all about a good throw down for friends and family’s birthdays, but would usually rather avoid my own. We could probably go into that topic for a good minute, but we’ll skip. 😉 However this year, I decided it was time to just get over it, and really CELEBRATE! To celebrate the many milestones this year has brought, the life lessons I have learned, and every single day I was given to LIVE.

So I put on that yellow number, and after a really good day with my children, Gabe surprised me with a backyard hammock (eek!) and an evening out doing some of our favorite things. He’s a good egg. My best birthday gift though? A handmade card from my son Gabriel which said, “My favorite thing about my mom is that she likes to spend time with me.” Well…..heart puddle. A whole year of pouring yourself out for these little ones, and it all comes together in just one line.

Looking forward to the year ahead with much hope that there to what will be lived and learned.

red lace dress


“Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own home. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor . . . Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting.”
-Mother Teresa (Life motto:))


valentine's day date dress


On the occasion that a date around February 14th does offer an opportunity to get out to a fancy schmancy place, this will be the dress. Especially if you happen upon a very french looking cafe….might as well dress the part!

Dress found at Asos (The red style is 40% off. I went up a size for length. Here’s another similar style + and a plus size version I love.) // Clutch // Earrings // Trench // Shoes (similar)
