OOTD: Pure Comfort

All I cared about on this day was being 100% comfortable and cozy. I didn’t exactly want to wear sweat pants but I also didn’t want to wear real pants. Lol The next best thing is leggings!!! I can’t get enough of these textured leggings. The texture adds a special detail to something that has been done to death. Then all I needed was a shirt that was long enough to cover my bum. Add a sweater and light boot to complete the comfy look. Enjoy!

Transition OOTD

This OOTD is composed of 3 simple things that we all have in our closets ($ Saver). A dress, a sweater, and ballet flats is all you need! I love this outfit because it’s great for the long transition to true fall weather. In Houston one day it’s cool, fall like weather and the very next day in 99 degrees by 10am!

Going from day to night is also a breeze with this OOTD. On a warm evening remove your sweater and show a little more skin. Grab your go to heels out of the trunk of your car and you are good to go.

I would love to see your version of this OOTD! Post pictures in the comments to show it off 🙂 Enjoy!

New Capsule Wardrobe


Getting dressed for any occasion is exhausting at this point in my life.I have tons of clothes in my closet but I always feel like I have nothing to wear. As if this wasn’t enough, I also have space and storage issues. In April of 2015, my husband and I purchased a 1929 cottage in our ideal neighborhood that needed renovations. Let’s face it, back in 1929 every thing was built for efficiency so we have a tiny closet. We both agreed to be clutter free in the new house but I am still struggling to figure out how to make the most of my miniature closet.
 Fast forward 7 months and…I am still having issues with “having nothing to wear.” I was searching for storage solutions when I came across a few articles that described a “capsule wardrobe” and I was immediately drawn to it. It put me in a mental space to have less things but of higher quality ,rather than have a bunch of cheaper items that I don’t want to wear.  I found Project333 extremely helpful. Project333 shows you how to create a capsule collection only wearing 33 pieces (Tops, Bottoms,Shoes) for 3 months.Between finding inspiration on Pinterest and Project333 I know I am ready for the next step which is to clean out my closet again. I recently got rid of a lot of items that no longer served me but I need to do another round now that I have a clear goal. I will take anything out of my closet that doesn’t fit well, is damaged, that I haven’t worn in a year, and most importantly, that I do not LOVE.


Oh yes I said LOVE! I didn’t realize how many items I had in my closet that fit into one of those categories. It never clicked in my mind that I should love every clothing item I own. I feel like a new door has been opened and I can’t wait to walk through it.  I want to give a capsule wardrobe a try. The way things are currently aren’t working so why not try something new.

I feel really good about doing something to simply my life. Go with me on this journey to a new wardrobe and join me if you “never have anything to wear.” Enjoy!
