    This is such a cute idea for a page! I really like your image for the shirts where they’re all together in one image instead of separate ones kinda like a collage. I wish you the best of luck on your blog!

    i love your blog! very inspirational, and your baby is beautiful. i do wish the links to the clothes are the exact item rather a similar piece – i am having such a hard time finding clothes these days (i too am post baby body) that anything that looks promising i would love to try. anyway, i can’t wait for your next post!

      Thank you! You are so sweet! I’m sorry about the links. Many of my clothes are several seasons old as I thrift and consign quite a bit. I can tell you though that everything I link up is as close as possible to the original. And many of the items are the exact things. If there’s any particular piece you’re curious about just contact me through the contact form and we can chat about it. ????

    I’v recently started to eliminate a lot of clothing I hardly ever wear, and stick to the items that are versitile and make me feel best when wearing them! I must say, it feels so good to live with less. I love your blog, its perfect and so inspiring 🙂 Thanks!

    Love your capsule! We have the same taste in plaid shirts! I’m always excited to find other bloggers who do the capsule thing, and your whole site is awesome.

    Umm, this is amazing. As an every day thrifter (read: hoarder), I am definitely implementing some of your tips and tricks for cutting out the clutter. Quality over quantity right?? P.S. We totally have a similar style, and I am obsessed with that white stripe tee. #stripesalways

      haha thanks Cami!! I do love thrifting though, don’t get me wrong. 🙂 I’ve just reigned it in! And um… yes. Stripes for life!

    I’m also working on building my capsule wardrobe and blogging about it here:

    Thanks for the wardrobe inspiration! I’m starting from complete scratch so I’m definitely taking it slow, too!

    This is the 2nd video I watched today. Really like your capsule choices & how they work in your lifestyle right now. Also, prefer the quality peices & ageee about the dresses over shorts. This motivates me to try everything on & keep the loves and toss that isn’t working for me🤗💖! Thanks beautiful!!

    Karin, I really love your white tunic and the t-shirt dress, stripes are my uniform and can’t live without them. Great video!

    You’re adorable! You seem to have a unique eye for pieces that are both old-school colonial farm girl vintage with modern hipster flare. Well done!
