Happy weekend friends! I feel like it’s been such a long time since I posted here on the blog, and it feels good to be back typing something up for you all. This weekend is wedding weekend for my cousin, and I’m excited for some family time and special memories. I’m about to go get dressed up, but right now, I want to chat about casual weekend style. I’ve been playing around with different ways to make a casual look feel more pulled together, so let’s talk about how I did that for this outfit!
The holiday season is on its way, and with it the beginning of party season. Now is the time for all things festive and glamorous! I love it when I get an opportunity to dress up, but since I started wearing a capsule wardrobe, dressy occasions are a bit different. I keep a few dresses in my capsule wardrobe that can be dressed up or down depending on the event, and over the past year I’ve learned a few tricks to elevate any outfit and make it look more dressed up. I went to the symphony over the weekend, and thought I’d share how I implemented these tricks for that evening.
Here are my tips for dressing up with a capsule wardrobe.
I took a little break from the blog last week to focus on teaching and getting over a cold at the same time, but after a restful weekend, I’m feeling refreshed with ideas and excited about the content I’ll be bringing you over the next several weeks. Today, though, let’s talk about a few things:
Scarves, simplicity, and Emma Stone.
When I found out last year that Rifle Paper Co. was releasing a fabric line in collaboration with Cotton & Steel, I was over the moon excited. Sewing is one of my favorite hobbies, and you all know my love for Rifle Paper Co. runs deep. The collection, Les Fleurs, released this summer, and I ordered a couple of fabrics as soon as I got the email. My first project was this little dress!
I think I’m a little too excited for fall, because it was definitely way too hot to be wearing this outfit yesterday, but my mind was so much in autumn-mode that I went for it anyway. 😉 I met up with the lovely Lee from Lee Thrifts, and she introduced me to the cutest handmade popsicle/ice cream bar shop down in The Heights. If you’re in the Little Rock area, Le Pops is adorable and super good!
