When I first heard about capsule wardrobes a few years ago I thought it was such an inventive idea for people who wanted to declutter their lives. So what exactly is a capsule wardrobe? It would be described as a compact wardrobe made up of specific staple pieces in neutral or similar color tones. A capsule wardrobe is normally comprised of 30 items or fewer which includes everything from clothing, shoes, bags, and accessories. It is essentially a fool proof way to get dressed on a daily basis.
Are you sweater obsessed? Me too! It’s to the point I just stock up for photos… Am I the only person that does this?? Grayson literally thinks I’m crazy! I have piles and piles of sweaters and he’s like seriously, Ashley, you NEVER wear any of these! But honey… They make amazing photo props or what if we go somewhere really cold and I need to pack ALL of my sweaters?! There ARE definitely a handful that I wear on a daily basis in the winter and the sweater in this post is definitely one of my faves.
For someone who lives in Texas where it never truly gets THAT cold, I sure own a TON of coats! I’ll be that crazy person when its 85 degrees (like yesterday) I’ll be bundled up like the snow-pacolypse is coming! True story. It’s so embarrassing because I have an ungodly amount of winter clothing that I rarely even get to wear and when summer rolls around I’m like, where the hell are all of my warm weather clothes?! The struggle is real!
The era of customization is upon us. Practically everything we can put our hands on can be customized to a consumer’s specifications; shoes, clothes, hats, handbags and so much more. It’s rare that we actually see designer goodies that actually have interchangeable parts though. The latest trend that seems to be hitting the fashion scene are interchangeable purse straps, which to me is a genius idea! Investing in a handbag is that much easier and practical if you can customize it to match a different outfit everyday.
How is it almost 2017!? Am I the only one blown away that New Years is only a week away?? I thought I was planning my schedule out so well and anticipated this post being up last week BUT who am I kidding; life happened and I’m a little delayed on almost everything at this point! Better late than never, right?? I can’t be the only one. 🙂 I mean, I literally just bought my NYE dress yesterday before we go out of town but it is such a stunner, I’m so excited to share the photos with y’all!
Do you ever see a dress online and you just know it’s going to be a winner?? That’s exactly how I felt about this Free People stunner; easy, breezy, elegant and perfect for summer or fall! Take a look for yourself! If that main image doesn’t suck you in, I don’t know what will! I was really looking for something dramatic, yet comfy, for our trip to New Orleans. Being in a new city I wanted something that would be different than my norm. and I definitely think this dress did the trick.
Who else is still looking for the perfect pair of leather boots for Fall? Search no more! These gorgeous boots came Justin the knick of time for winter and are under $150! From my own experience, finding the perfect pair of boots is never easy. There are so many things to consider; price, sizing, brand, comfort, style, what you will realistically wear them with and how often. If you’re like me, I love splurging on a great pair of classic boots because they are going to last me for years and years to come.
Winter is all about finding that perfect comfy sweater and if you know me, you know that I stock up on cozy anything and everything!! I partnered with Chicwish to share some of my favorite cold weather wardrobe essentials! Chicwish is one of my favorites because you can always get so many unique pieces that are actually affordable. Unless something is cashmere, I do NOT want to spend a fortune on sweaters. Mainly because the weather in Texas is so hot and cold that I don’t want to invest in sweaters I most likely wont wear!
Hello holidays!! Is this anyone else’s favorite time of the year, or is it just me?? When I think of the holidays I automatically dream of snow, family traditions, yummy food and holiday parties!! Could there be anything better?? I have partnered with Silver Jeans Co. to share one of my favorite cozy Fall looks and talk all about my family’s ever-changing holiday traditions! Are they really traditions if they are always changing?? Ha! What are some of y’alls family traditions??
How is it almost December??? Does anyone else feel like this year flew by? It is still crazy to me that the Texas weather is STILL in the 70s and 80s! Thankfully, we are having a bit of a cold front right now, but seriously, we have to bundle up in the morning and mega layer for the 80 degree temps midday! Where is my winter, Texas?! Lucky for me, the highs are in the 60s today so I got to bundle up a little!
