closet cleanout tip

I haven’t been able to get this closet cleanout tip out of my head since I read it a few days ago.  It’s pretty much rocked my closet cleaning world and changed the way I look at purging the clothes I no longer wear.  Okay, if you haven’t clicked the link yet, I’ll explain it now.  Instead of going by when you last wore a piece and letting that determine whether or not you’re going to keep it in your closet, ask yourself this:  If I were shopping right now, would I buy this?  Amazing, right?  I love it because it’s all about keeping with how your style has evolved.  And if you need help defining whatever your style aesthetic is, check out Into Mind.  It’s a blog all about defining personal style and curating the type of wardrobe that is a true reflection of that style.

where did summer go?

If you follow me on Instagram, you saw this outfit in bits and pieces yesterday.  If you know me in real life, you know that these overalls have barely left my body in the past few days. :)  Anyways, I had a busy start to the week which is why I didn’t have a chance to post to the blog.  But I had a great time yesterday shooting with Capital Style Magazine.  You might remember last year when I styled a fall outfit for them and they invited me back this year to do the same thing.  I also just approved the next round of Eli & Barry designs and I’m so excited to share those with you guys.  AND James and I are getting ready to leave for Colorado for three weeks on Monday.  Sheesh!  Can anyone tell me where the summer went?

I think these images speak for themselves.  I know it feels crazy to be talking about fall in July, but these outfits from Madewell have me yearning for leaf-filled streets and cool autumn days.  The fall collection will start to hit the Madewell at Easton next week.  Which look is your favorite?

Some pretty little pieces that are on sale now from Creatures of  Comfort.  Creatures of Comfort is a boutique in New York that also has an in-house label.  I love the simple silhouettes and pretty fabrics, plus everything from the Creatures of Comfort label is made in New York.  I particularly love the wrap dress pictured below in black since it can be worn open as a jacket, as well.  You can shop the Creatures of Comfort sale here, but be sure to look at the entire sale section because I just found these Rachel Comey boots for 50% off…

always trust your gut

When I first saw these pants at Sloane Boutique in Cincinnati, I wasn’t so sure I should buy them.  Yes, I loved them, but they were going to be a bold choice.   So bold that I wasn’t so sure I would be able to wear them much.  Oh, how wrong I was.  I bought them, hemmed them to hit ankle-length and they’ve become a summer staple.  I love them on a hot day with flat sandals (like the ones below) and a tank.  I love them dressed up with a pair of mules.  I think they’ll translate nicely into fall with a leather jacket and beanie.  What’s the lesson in all of this?  Always trust your gut.
