Feeling content and creative with your wardrobe all at once is pretty wonderful, and I’m getting just that feeling from my fall capsule wardrobe! I shared in my recent post all about my planning process that I wanted to bring it back to the basics and sprinkle in some fun this season, and I think this way of planning has worked really well for me. The resulting 23 piece capsule is versatile, practical, and makes me feel like me. In my book, that makes it a success! Read on to watch my capsule wardrobe video and to shop my autumn capsule!
Handbags are some of the primary investment pieces in my wardrobe. The work that goes into creating one is taxing and meticulous, often making them more expensive than other items I purchase. While I’m not the type to run out and buy a new bag each season, I am slowly collecting an assortment that serve me well and will last for years. Quality over quantity really rings true. One thing I have discovered as I have researched ethical handbag options is that fair production does not always cost as much as I would expect, and traditional manufacturing of designer bags is sometimes inflated. A high-quality ethically made bag does not need to cost a month’s rent. Today I’m rounding up some of my favorite bags from a mixture of vegan and non-vegan brands. If you are looking to add a classic bag to your wardrobe, I hope you find this post helpful.
Boots Made for Walking
Come October, you’ll usually find me in a pair of well loved ankle boots. I love how versatile they are, and the slight polish they lend to even the most laid-back of looks. When I first began to explore ethical fashion, I struggled to find shoes and boots that were what I wanted, but as time has passed, the options have increased. Today I’m sharing my favorite ankle boots on the market this autumn to give you some beautiful mindful options, and hopefully spare you the endless Google trail I went on a couple of years ago. Get ready to stomp through the autumn leaves! Here’s the footwear for the job.
Camel & Cashmere
Today I’m excited to kick off a series of guest posts exploring different perspectives on wardrobe essentials. Since we each have different styles, climates, and occasions to dress for, there is so much we can learn from other women’s wardrobes, and over the next five weeks we will be getting to peek into a few of my favorites. Our first guest poster is one of my favorite slow fashion Instagramers, Aléna Tran. I know you will love reading her thoughts, seeing her amazing style, and checking out her beautiful and inspiring Instagram account.
Each year when the weather warms up, my style goes through a shift towards all things flowing, billowy, ruffled, and romantic. Sizzling summer days conjure up visions of 1970s music festivals and the Victorian revival styles that have always had a place in my heart. My more minimal basics move to the back of the wardrobe to make way for white lace blouses, floral dresses, and flowing maxi skirts. And speaking of flowing maxi skirts, let’s talk about the lilac-hued number I’m wearing in this post!
