Winter 10×10: Outfits 5 – 7

After a three day break from the winter 10×10 I’m back at it! This is the first time I’ve done a 10×10 that I’m not starting to feel antsy and sick of the clothes by this point. I have a feeling it’s because I included some items that were new in my wardrobe (that I…

Winter 10×10: Outfits 1 – 4

I blinked and we’re already four days into the Winter 10×10 Closet Remix. I am LOVING this closet remix so far. I feel it’s been my best/favorite one yet. Here’s a look at the nine pieces I selected, though this week I swapped out the striped tee for a light gray 3/4 sleeve tee because…

Winter Remix: A Style Challenge

Inspired again by some great lean wardrobe blogs Style Bee and Un-fancy, I decided to join in on the Winter 10×10¬†happening next week. This isn’t my first 10×10 challenge and based on past experience I know I find it much more enjoyable if I alter the ‘rules’ a bit. Here’s how I’m going to to…

If you’ve been a reader here for a few months, you know that I’ve really been working hard at decluttering our overstuffed home and being more careful about keeping only items that we really use/need/love. I would not in a million years claim to be a minimalist, but I’m definitely making huge strides in becoming…

Little Black Jumpsuit

One thing I have really come to appreciate since paring down my wardrobe is comfort. I don’t quite know why I never prioritized how comfortable an item was before, but I know I used to have plenty of clothes that just didn’t feel good to wear. Hemlines I always tugged at, sleeves that felt snug,…

Holiday (and Beyond) Dress

‘Tis the season for all things festive. Delicious food, warm drinks, family gatherings, and holiday dresses. Now, my family doesn’t get overly dressed up for the holidays (stretchy and comfy is the name of our game) and my husband and I don’t go to holiday parties that have a fancier dress code (but I totally…

A Blank Canvas: Black Silk Dress

It has honestly surprised me how much I love this basic black silk dress from The White Label Project. Everyone always says that you need a simple black dress in your closet, and now I know why… It’s the perfect blank canvas. My other black dresses all have some detail that makes them stand out…
