Sunday is a day of rest, and I rested as well. That being said, my outfit was not something I wanted to share with the world. Suffice it to say, I wore clothes appropriate for lounging but not photographing. Leopard slip-ons: All hail the althleisure trend, it’s PERFECT for my day. Ah let’s face it, it’s…Continue reading Sabbath Day Slide
Yesterday’s weather took a turn for the worst and felt like Actual February instead of the Fake February of the past week. We had snow and wind, y’all! I’m glad I included some winter clothes in this challenge, but I might have overlooked a coat. This capsule wardrobe is not an exercise in suffering, though,…Continue reading Snowy Saturday
As I type this, I am listening to a song that helps me push through to the weekend, Black Friday Rule by Flogging Molly. Yesterday’s outfit contained little black, which is abnormal for me. What made it feel normal was that it one of my regular uniforms: skinny jeans, t-shirt and cardigan with flats. And…Continue reading Non-Black Friday Rule
Yesterday was the first day of my capsule wardrobe experiment. The night before, I boxed up all the clothes, shoes, and scarves I own that didn’t make the cut on the list in my previous post, Starting a Capsule Wardrobe. It felt great! I loved looking at a closet that didn’t have boxes of shoes…Continue reading First Day Jitters
Last night, I got fed up with my laundry. I had thrown a large load into the dryer and set a smaller load on wash, leaving to pick up Baby E. I realized once I settled down after dinner, bath and bedtime that I the small load was still in the washer, waiting to be…Continue reading Starting a Capsule Wardrobe
Yesterday, I asked myself two questions, the first of which I’m going to delve into today: Did I create my current life? As I wrote yesterday, I definitely believe in the power of thought and the power of positive thought. So, yes, I do. I don’t know that I was intentional about all the specifics, and…Continue reading Bloom Where You Are Planted
I believe in our ability to shape our circumstances with our thoughts, and I believe in the power of positivity. It makes sense, then, that concepts like the ones in Designing Your Life would pique my interest. I wonder, I have designed my current circumstances, which are vastly different from my old, beloved life? Or…Continue reading Did I Design My Life?
Hi there! I’m an editor and single mom who lives in a small Midwestern town with Casper the Friendly Dog and Baby E. I constantly examine my life to look for ways to optimize it. Cultivating my life is a challenge, but the final product is an evolving work of art.
Haha. Yep, that’s how I’m starting out this post. Because my intentions from yesterday of doing a fall 10 x 10 with an infant are just hilarious. Don’t get me wrong, I rolled with it, but I had already changed my clothes three times by noon. If the rest of the weekend goes this way, I’ll be done with my challenge…Continue reading Fall 10 x 10 Outfit 4
I left off a few hours ago with telling you I was pretty proud of myself for not only rolling with the punches but also for styling two different outfits out of similar pieces. Then, as often happens with motherhood, I went from being proud of my accomplishment to being humble. About an hour…Continue reading Fall 10 x 10 Outfit 3
