A Spring Capsuling Update

It's snowing outside. Just flurries, but in the past couple of weeks we've had a semi-storm, a nor'easter and constant flurries. Not to mention the sub-zero temperatures more reminiscent of January than March. Despite daylight savings time making it lighter in the evenings, I am not feeling the 'spring' vibe. Needless to say, my wardrobe capsuling … Continue reading A Spring Capsuling Update

Cutting Off the Cash Cow

The past few weeks have been expensive. Some of it was planned expenses (the down payment on our September trip to Slovenia/Austria/Italy and the downpayment for the cottage in PEI where we spend a week each summer) and some of it was me going a bit hog wild because I received a nice royalty payment … Continue reading Cutting Off the Cash Cow

Winter Wardrobe Wrap-Up

With Spring approaching (eventually...February and March are the longest months of the year, I swear), I've been taking stock of my current winter wardrobe to get a sense of what works and what doesn't.

What this is, … Continue reading The Winter 10×10 Challenge

Stripping Down

In early December, I ordered The Curated Closet by Anuschka Rees in the hopes this book would (1) assist me in cleaning out my closet, and (2) give my style a bit of a reboot. I have a pretty good idea of what my style is, but my current wardrobe isn't quite matching up with … Continue reading Stripping Down

Creating the Capsule Wardrobe

I have made my first pass at creating a Capsule Wardrobe for Winter. I say 'first pass' because ideally I would like to whittle it down a bit more. Right now, I have 45 pieces of clothing, but that does not include shoes/boots or coats. I own a fair number of boots. I've tossed several pair into … Continue reading Creating the Capsule Wardrobe
