my edited spring/summer wardrobe

The past few years has been a real journey for my wardrobe. When I first got married and unpacked my clothes I took up a full closet with only a small amount of clothing left for my husband. Then as my minimalism and ethical journey began I started to pare down my wardrobe more and…

mostly mustard – my fall 2019 wardrobe

If you read my final Project 333 post (see here) you would know that I was getting very tired of my summer capsule wardrobe. I found myself peeking into my fall clothing under the bed a few times, excitedly waiting for when I could switch up my clothes. On August 31 I couldn’t wait any…

spring wardrobe switchover

As March began I really began to have a massive itch to change up my wardrobe. There was still snow on the ground but the combination of getting a little bit tired of my winter clothing and getting a few new spring and summer pieces from the thrift store I was really ready to make…

ethical and sustainable fashion

Ethical and sustainable clothing brands…

an introduction to capsule wardrobes

103. That is the number of clothes that I own, that doesn’t even include workout gear, lounge wear, pajamas, and underwear. (I even counted my 18 pairs of shoes separately from this list). Now I don’t know about you, but that seems like a crazy amount of clothing items, especially since I only have one…
