Capsule Wardrobes

These pieces are all timeless, but there’s def a bit of bohemian energy in the blanket coat & those shearling-lined platforms that makes this capsule hum with...restrained whimsy.
Well, if I was slowly coming around on the NSale by the end of my Wish List post, this little capsule wardrobe situation has me now firmly rooted in giddy territory. I am deeply smitten with all 14 items here -- and the eight outfit ideas that are suggested below are just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. There's...
Updating my fall closet wi/ my 3 fav fall wardrobe staples: boots (lug sole Chelsea boots, please), jeans (straight-leg, high waist denim for life,) + sweaters (oversized chunky knit pullovers + wool turtlenecks.)
Whew. Deep breaths people. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has officially started, which means I’m officially stressed. I’ve spent the past week scrolling through 80+ pages of sale items, filling up my shopping cart, and perfecting my wish lists; I’ve pretty much got the entire sale inventory memorized by heart now. So whether you’re waiting to shop or you’ve already...
Many of the most exciting pieces in NSale are under $100. GREAT denim under $50, the COZIEST sweatshirt-wrap under $60, my fav joggers under $40, & the TME fav basic tee under $13!
Although I tried on a ton of fancy-schmancy designer pieces in my Sweaters, Denim, and Cardigans Selfie Post, many of the most exciting pieces in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year are actually in the Under $100 Category. GREAT denim under $50, the COZIEST sweatshirt-wrap under $60, my fav joggers under $40, and the TME fav basic tee under...
Those Staud Chelsea boots — the cool-girl ones, in that gorg shade of green — have been playing hard to get. A green boot in an updated shape both excites me & hurts my head.
Those Staud Chelsea boots — the cool-girl ones, in that gorgeous shade of green — have been playing a little hard to get. They showed up in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale preview, got us all excited, and then -- poof! -- disappeared. The word we got was that they weren't part of the sale any longer. So imagine our...
I haven't forgotten what "fall" & "winter" mean when you live in a warm climate. SO, I scoured the 2021 NSale to find the best capsule wardrobe picks for a warm climate.
Ever feel like the only TME reader in school that can't justify that cute puffer jacket or fleece-lined stupid pants during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale because you live in a warm climate and you'll maybe have two hours one gray morning in January to wear said pieces and, by the time you remember you own said pieces, it's already...
A capsule wardrobe featuring the gray Theory wool coat. Surprisingly, the outfit ideas are less neutrals, more color. We call this capsule wardrobe: The Girly Minimalist.
As I've been perusing through the pieces in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, evaluating which ones I actually need, which I'll actually wear, there was one gorgeous piece that really stood out: Theory's gray duffle coat. It's the most beautiful soft gray, made from a wool/cashmere blend, and has the most amazing drape. Gorgeous, right? Yup. But also...expensive. We're talking $599...
If you've spent any time here on The Mom Edit, you've seen my gorgeous mama. The apple didn't fall far from the tree, friends. She and my grandmother have been the biggest influences on my style and the reasons for my love of fashion. I'm stoked that she has been game to share some of her phenomenal looks with...
For the put-together mom -- but think casual -- a cool capsule wardrobe stocked with warm neutrals, matching sets, glam jackets & the right accessories.
I've hated the "you look so put-together" comment at times because my mind is not put-together at all. I remember trying to change and could not. Now, as a stylist who helps others discover and embrace their unique styles, I know finding ways to look put-together, even in sweatpants, is part of me. So this the lens I have...
From Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021, I want statement cashmere sweaters, dreamy denim + all the coats (I'm talking raincoats, trench coats, puffers, you name it).
I haven't lived in a state with seasons for almost a decade (well unless you count that week in February where Texas experienced an unprecedented true winter) I left my cable-knit sweaters and half of my Jersey accent behind when I moved to Florida in 2011 and subsequently Texas. But now that I am officially a Coloradoan, mama needs...
For the jeans & t-shirt kind o' girl...this capsule wardrobe. Think: nonchalantly cool -- a wool coat w/ great drape, sneakers for date night -- + a few subtly sexy pieces, too.
I came across an old interview I did where I described my style as "Tomboy goes to Paris" and even all of these years later, I still identify with that. It helps to remind myself of what my personal style actually is, especially when shopping a sale as good as the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I can easily get carried away...
