It’s the day before Thanksgiving, and I can hardly believe that the holiday season is upon us! My family is gathering from across the country to celebrate, and I’m looking forward to time together and, of course, a lot of pie. Recently I’ve put together some outfits that I think will be perfect for Thanksgiving, so today I’m sharing three looks that would work well for a variety of celebrations. These outfits could also be easily adapted to be more casual or dressy. Whether you’re watching the parade, in the kitchen, or at a family dinner, I hope this post gives you some style inspiration!
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!
Comfort & Coziness
It’s time for another installment of 5 Wardrobe Essentials, and today I’m excited to introduce you to Emily DeLong, creator of Margu Design. Emily is a designer and seamstress based out of Northwest Arkansas, and I’m excited for us to get a slow fashion creator’s perspective on wardrobe essentials. Her beautiful line, Margu, focuses on impeccable attention to detail, sustainable practices, and is all cut and sewn in her Arkansas studio. Margu’s Fall/Winter collection was released last month, and each piece is just exquisite. Be sure to hop over and check it out once you’ve read this post! Emily has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to ethical and sustainable fashion, and I know you’ll enjoy reading about her favorites today.
Well friends, it’s Halloween, there’s finally a chill in the air that seems to be here to stay, and it’s time for me to switch over my wardrobe for autumn. Yesterday I made the last purchase for my fall closet, and I’m so excited to share this capsule wardrobe with you once that piece arrives. Over the summer I began to feel like I was in a strange place with my style, and wearing a hodge-podge of pieces that didn’t feel like me 100% of the time. With this in mind, I have approached the new season with a healthy dose of mindfulness and a ruthless wardrobe edit. Let’s chat about how I went about the process.
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.
