Fall Capsule: Week 2 Weekend Outfits

Weekends in my world are typically spent cheering my kids on at their activities (3 of the 4 are playing sports this fall), catching up on work around the house, and enjoying some downtime with the family. This weekend was all of those things and then some…like celebrating my sweet girl’s 5th birthday! My weekend…

Fall Capsule: Week 2 Work Outfits

A few weeks ago I asked for input on what you’d like to see more of here and received some thoughtful and exciting suggestions. The weekly outfit posts get pretty lengthy and with some of the new ideas including #momstyle (what I wear after work) and ‘near misses‘ (outfits I tried in the morning but…

Fall Capsule: Week 1 Outfits

Last week I shared my Capsule-ish Wardrobe for fall…and then promptly added four more items (good thing I put the -ish at the end 🙂). They haven’t arrived yet, so I can’t say they’re all keepers, but I just wanted to get my confession out there. I found the same Madewell jeans I have in…

The kids are all settled into their new classes, the morning routine is getting just slightly more organized, and we have a plan for shuttling around to after school…

What I Wore: Back to Reality and Looking for Input

Here we go! The back-to-school countdown clock finally reached zero and on Wednesday I headed back for my 15th year of teaching. After a full summer of staying away from my typical summer yoga capris and tank tops it only seemed appropriate that I spent the final two (very cool, rainy) days of the summer…

What I Wore: Relaxation Mode

I recently checked out the book Present Over Perfect from our local library. While it focused more on religion than I really connect with, it did share some interesting perspectives on busyness. I’m still processing how the book connects to slowing down my own life, but one thing I did takeaway is that I need to…
