The Capsule Wardrobe Experiment

The Experiment

You might have already heard of capsule wardrobes or Project 333, but if not here’s a breakdown of the experiment.  It’s basically a minimalist style of living where your wardrobe consists of only items that you truly love.  Project 333 is pretty intense as you can only have 33 items for 3 months, and that includes clothes, shoes, accessories, and jewelry!  Exercise clothes, pajamas, and under garments are not included.  Needless to say, I’m not going that extreme.  I have decided to make a capsule wardrobe instead.  A capsule wardrobe is based around the same principles as Project 333, but it’s not so intense.  Every three months, you change out your capsule wardrobe based on the season.

My Favorite Blogs

Because I’m an aspiring blogger, I thought I would show some love to some of my favorite bloggers!  These ladies have incredible blogs that really are a treat to read.

  1. House of Harper:  This is one of my absolute favorites.  She posts everything from fashion, to beauty, to travel, and life.  Her style is so effortless and classy, and her photos are so well done.  I’m also in love with her interior design style.  This is definitely one to check out!
  2. Atlantic-Pacific:  This girl is all about fashion!  It’s predominantly a photo blog so those of you who don’t like to read but love good pictures will find this blog most appealing.  Her fashion style is so fun! She has some really classic looks, but she also pushes the envelope a bit. I love it so much!
  3. Making Sense of Cents:  This finance blog is the jam!  Michelle really lays everything out for you.  She is also young and successfully self-employed. The information and advice she gives is so relevant and helpful to young adults.  Because of this blog, J and I have really been looking taking a closer look at our financial plan.
  4. Dallas Wardrobe: This is another predominantly fashion blog, but I love it! She’s based out of Dallas obviously, so her style has that Southern flare.  It’s a totally different feel than Atlantic-Pacific and equally as awesome.
  5. Unsettle: This blog is fairly new, but it is packed with amazing content.  Sarah is such a great motivator.  She gives you helpful advice on different life endeavors, and her goal is to encourage you to go for your dreams.  Her posts make me believe I can do anything, not in the way where it just magically happens, but in a way where I’m given the tools to make it happen!

ENJOY!

Top Three Highlighters

IMG_2062Fall and winter bring wonderfully cool weather when we feel like we can’t take another day of summer, but with the cold weather, comes dull skin.  The number one way to combat dull skin is with exfoliating and moisturizing.  However, a good highlighter can work wonders.  As I rummaged through my makeup collection, I pulled out my three favorite highlighters, which all happen to be very different in shades and textures.

Cool Weather and Matte Lips

Fall is finally here!  The wind is beginning to have that cool, crisp feeling.  I have a purple mum on my front porch and two pumpkin candles burning in my living room.  Tis’ the life!  Along with cool weather comes matte lips!  I love a good matte lip any time of the year, but they’re especially on trend in the fall and winter.  For those of you who don’t want to break the bank, I have a drugstore option that is amazing!

Fall Favorites

It’s T-minus two days until it’s officially fall!  I love all the seasons in their time, but they’re something special about fall.  So I thought I would share my fall favorites with you!

  1. Cool, crisp mornings!  I mean is there anything better than walking outside to a nice, crisp morning after an extremely hot summer? In Mississippi, that’s almost heavenly.
  2. Dark, berry lips!!! Can you tell I’m excited about this one?  Fall makeup is one of my favorites! And of course I have to give you some options!  MAC Lipstick in Plumful is a beautiful color that’s not too dark, if you’re a bit timid to go with a dark lip.  A great, affordable option is the Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick-Kate Moss Collection in 107.  It’s a beautiful, brick, berry shade which is a bit darker than MAC Palmful.  And if you really want to take it to a dark shade, check out the Kat Von D Everlasting Lipstick in Vampira or Exorcism.  These liquid lipsticks LAST, buddy! And these two colors are for real dark, berry fall colors!
  3. Sweaters!  It’s hard to get better than a cozy sweater, the thicker the better!  It’s hard to wear thick sweaters in the fall in Mississippi, but I take advantage of it any time I can! Turtlenecks are huge this season, so grab one and get cozy!
  4. Boots! Who doesn’t love a good pair of booties?  I’m slightly obsessed with JustFab at the moment.  It’s an online shop that has the CUTEST boots!  I own like four pair of booties from there, and I’m currently lusting over these babies!  Over-the-knee boots are very in this season!
  5. PUMPKIN SPICE EVERYTHING!  Last, but not least, pumpkin, pumpkin, and more pumpkin!  It’s seriously hard for me not to gain 20 pounds during the fall/holiday season because I ADORE all things pumpkin.  Of course, I’m basic and I love the pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks, but I’m also a sucker for pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin scones, pumpkin muffins…. you get the gist. I basically turn into a big pumpkin for the season!

So tell me, what are your fall favorites?  And as always,

Happy Shopping!-logo
