a capsule wardrobe & style muses

Wednesday, 29 April 2015

Like most (though I'm reluctant to admit), I'm constantly battling my closet in the morning. Rummaging through so. much. clothing. but not a thing to wear. When I finally choose something it's a similar story to the day before. 

Last week I came across Unfancy. Caroline's capsule wardrobe makes so much sense! I'd heard this term thrown around, but never dug into it for clarification. Since I'm usually grabbing the same pieces, this concept would work really well for me. 

So last weekend I grabbed a couple bags and started pulling clothes off hangers, shoes off shelves and accessories outta boxes. A good ol' closet purge. It always feels good. The nicer items I'll be shipping off to my sister, but the rest of it gets donated. I'd like to add items this this to take their place...

As I search for my 'capsule pieces' I'm looking to a few of my style muses. Anna Bond, Emerson Fry, Hannah Henderson, Sophia Amoruso (I could never pull off much of what she wears, she's just a total badass), and others. I gravitate towards basics, in black or white, and I can always dress something up with the right pair of shoes.

In watercolor...

If I could find the real life version of this lace set I'd buy it. Of course, a watercolor print isn't bad either. A beautiful piece by UK-based illustrator, Abigail Mckenzie.

adventure awaits, let's camp

Now that it's finally warm enough to enjoy the great outdoors, we're taking our first camping trip of the year this weekend. I'm pretty excited to use my new NapSack, too. We'll be outside Richmond with a couple great friends exploring a new campsite, new hiking trails and kayaking. Plus, my husband found a bonsai and estate sale in Richmond, so it's like the stars are aligning. Hoping to score some cool stuff to take home.

Happy weekend, friends.

I've always been a fan of typography, especially handwritten type. I love this one by Dan Cassaro, but his whole portfolio is pretty awesome.
