Easy, Minimal Ingredient Dinner Ideas + My Book List

Meet Karin

Hi there!  My name is Karin and I’m wife to David, mother to Kit, Ella, Rosie, and Gabe.  I’m passionate about joy filled motherhood, sustainable style, and simple, slow living.

I started doing Capsule Wardrobes in the summer of 2015 when Kit was only six months old (crazy how fast time goes!) and to document my journey, I started Truncation.

In 2017 Our family increased by two (twins!), as did my desire to share about more than just my capsules. I knew my seasonal capsule wardrobe journey had ended and I was ready to dive into a more diversified group of topics… or as I like to sum it up with:

Mindful Motherhood, Mindful Style, Mindful Living.

Then in 2019 we welcomed our first baby boy Gabe (who is currently being spoiled rotten by his three older sisters).

I’m so glad you stopped by… let’s have some fun!

    Hiya – new to your blog (found through capsule wardobing and Feedly recommendations). I enjoy it a lot so far! I wanted to say hi as a fellow (terrible at it, but I try) capsule wardrober and twin mama. I did it the other way – twins first, then a third when they were 22 months old. I’m amazed you can blog well and frequently as mine has fallen off so much since my kiddos were born. (I work part time and find that that is the best and worst time to try to write and have almost no energy for it once I’m home…) Cheers. I look forward to following your sartorial adventures and love the name of the blog.

      Hi Rebecca! So glad you found me! I honestly would not be able to do this if I was working part time out of the home, because this IS a part time job for me haha. I don’t blame you at all for not being able to keep up with it. Twins and a toddler is a tough (and time consuming) job as well!
