Capsule Wardrobes

Perhaps the most foolproof outfit idea for cold-weather visits to NYC can be easily tweaked, based on personal style & weather. I love monochromatic looks (so chic) so I’d pair the pants w/ a sexy black top & add a statement coat.
I was snooping around in our TME Insiders group the other day, and reader Amanda had asked the group for some NYC outfit advice. She had plans to see Hamilton, and needed outfit ideas that were warm and chic. There were soooo many good answers in that thread! Most recommended some sort of all-black outfit (black pants, black top,...
Behold (ha!) my most reliable clothing during pregnancy -- a capsule wardrobe, if you will: a few maternity foundation pieces + a handful of versatile, non-maternity essentials. Cohesive, easygoing, comfy & (wisely, if you ask me) investment worthy.
OK pals — buckle up. Three weeks to go on ye olde pregnancy journey, and, as promised, I'm back to talk a little (lotta) bit more about how I've been dressing this time around. As someone who is pretty practical when it comes to investing in my wardrobe (and who is almost positive this is my last time doing...
I adore an outfit that can go anywhere, any day. From office, to travel, to lunch to errands to meetings...I call that useful. Timeless + effortless, polished + comfy, chic + not fussy. These 5 forever closet pieces do just that.
I'm at the point in my life and career where I want some reliable, go-to outfits. Looks I know I can pull together at a moment's notice and pieces I can rely on to be timeless and effortless. I recently tried out some new pieces from Everlane (these black pants & these chelsea boots) and they easily paired with...
Some classic pieces are popping up this fall...double-breasted blazers...belted even...gorg knee boots, cowboy boots, oversized tops, flare jeans...it's a whole new ballgame from last year's...sweatpants.
Of all the times of the year to get excited about creating a little wishlist...fall is it for me. And here is where my brain suddenly gets stuck on fall things and I get distracted. I legit couldn't think of what to type next because apple cider donuts popped into my head and then that's all I could see....
I had so much fun putting together fall outfit wishlists from Intermix that I made 2: gorgeous fall neutrals, plus edgy black & white.

I've been flirting with sustainable fashion brand ABLE, for some time so, I finally put in a big order & did my thing. I found a few forever pieces (boyfriend jeans, a slouchy bag + mules) that are chic, cool & perfect basics for any outfit.
I've been flirting with sustainable fashion brand ABLE, for quite some time. I "tried on" one of their bags in a boutique a couple of years ago. I bought a pair of earrings. Borrowed Scotti's denim jacket. Picked up a t-shirt and wore it a ton (even dressed it up with a big skirt for the holidays). But...
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...
