One of my New Year's resolutions this year is to create a neutral, mini capsule wardrobe for each season. When I cleaned out my closet the other day I realized this would be harder than I thought. I LOVE color! It brightens up my day and often times completes the perfect outfit. However, at other times, I find myself struggling to find classic outfits I can mix and match on a day-to-day basis.
The reason I decided to do a “mini capsule” is so that I can throw in my more color and printed pieces with my neutrals and it will help expand my wardrobe’s potential. Here are a few easy steps on how to create your own personal mini capsule wardrobe!
1.) Decide on a daily color palette to base it off of
I love shades of beige and will always be a grey girl! You will be shopping for your missing staple items in these colors.
2.) Find your staple styles for each season
For me this would be different types of turtleneck sweaters and skinny jeans for fall and winter; more of a French, casual style. During the warmer months I thrive off of dresses and mini skirts. Once you know what you are more likely to grab off the hanger on a rushed morning, you can shop for styles that will mix and match in your “capsule palette.” For example, I also wear a lot of different pinks. I love how these Free People pants are almost neutral, still bring color into my outfit, but I can wear a lot of different solid tops with them to switch it up.
3.) Instead of Prints, gravitate towards texture
I’m not saying you have to throw out your prints, because those are your accent pieces! What I am saying though, is that having solid textures or monochromatic prints helps you mix and match more. One great thing about sweater styles right now is all of the different weaves that are perfect for adding detail to your look. Find a nice pair of textured pants you can wear to the office with a blouse but can change into a fitted top with those same pants when you head out for dinner.
Just because it’s a capsule wardrobe doesn’t mean it has to be boring and basic, it just means it has to fit your current wardrobe to elevate and expand it! Happy capsuling ladies!! ;)
I love nothing more than a piece for my closet that can be worn from the office straight to date night! This. Bag. Has. It! Melie Bianco handbags are vegan, cruelty free in every way (workers included), and just overall amazing quality! For all you animals lovers like me out there, they are also Peta award winners as 'Best Animal-Friendly Accessories'
I love that I can wear this one two ways: as a hands-free waist bag to edge up my look, or with the cross body strap for everyday wear. Throw it on with a faux fur coat, your favorite pair of booties, and your outfit is elevated X 100! For someone who is always running around from work on a Friday to dinner and a night out, I am always looking for pieces that can transition well as staples, but one's that aren't too basic and boring. This Stalking Gia Convertible Crossbody is the perfect answer and it's now on sale!! It also comes in black and a sassy red to really be a statement piece; I'm obsessed. Don't miss their sale, I have a feeling it's going to be an 'add to cart' kind of weekend for me :)

Happy weekend loves!
Two words: Platform oxfords. How fun are these!? Madden Girl partnered with the up and coming artist Ezi to encourage individuality and fun when wearing your own style. She recently released a few new songs, one including DaNcing in a Ro0m, that I can't stop listening to! It's such a bop and her voice is seriously amazing! She is the premiere artist on Steve Madden’s record label 5 Towns Records, and has made a name for herself in the music industry. Go check her out right now! Or right after your read this whole post and watch my video at the end ;) She's on tour right now and it ends in January so don't miss out because Ezi is gonna be huge!
I'm always looking for fun but comfortable shoes that I can wear anywhere from work, to date night, or a fun night out and Steve Madden is always my go to! The Madden Girl X Ezi collection is the perfect fit. I think I also need the snake skin booties and pink sneaker for my closet this fall and winter. Honestly I could wear these comfy shoes year round!
They can be styled SO many different ways. These platform oxfords, for example, I will be wearing with jeans, business pants, skirts, and dresses. Also, who doesn't want to be a few inches taller on a daily basis!?
What I love about this line is that anyone can easily express their own style and individuality through just the shoes. Madden Girl is the sister brand of Steve Madden with a little bit of edge and youthful spirit, just like Ezi. She's not here to conform to a specific look or lifestyle, but inspiring girls to make a life for themselves that is fun and beautiful in their own way. Something I always try to embrace in my own life within myself and my brand.
Go check them out here and go check out Ezi's newest releases!

Holiday weekend here I come! I have never needed a three day weekend more than I do right now. I don't have big plans either and I'm actually so excited about it. Is this adulthood?!
Anyways, I have to share my favorite piece of jewelry as of late. Only the most precious love note I have ever seen... and I can wear it! Capsul creates personalized jewelry for your one-of-a-kind story, whether it's from your love, mother, or your best friend. My favorite custom piece of theirs is the handwriting! I told Austin I had a quick little project for him and that he could write ANYTHING for this (because he has amazing handwriting and I'd wear it forever). I left him to it and came back to the most precious script of "my love" and then I fell over and died because it was too darn cute. Yep. Never taking it off!
I chose it in the rose gold because it was too beautiful to pass up. They also offer this on bracelets and rings. I think initials would be super cute on the ring... maybe I have another little project for Austin haha :) Capsul is also offering 20% on their website, so go snag it before it ends!
I hope everyone has a wonderful, long weekend!
Thanks to Capsul for the beautiful necklace!!
You guys know I love a little pop of color! Especially during the summer. One of the easiest ways to add a little color to your outfit is through your accessories, in which I love to with my jewelry.
This Emma & Chloe ring is the perfect little statement ring for summer and going into the fall. It's such a pretty gold and the red-orange color is too fun! When I first pulled it out of the box I was so excited to see how nice it was and that it will be the perfect touch for my summer wardrobe. I want literally everything from their shop; they even offer a subscription box, which I totally need ;) Their French designs are classy and chic, perfect for mixing and matching everyday.

A moment of pure bliss before seeing literally the BIGGEST mosquito of my life and running back to the car!!
When you don't want to do anything on Sunday because you know you have too much to do on Monday... that's me right now. I watched more tv this weekend than I have in ages and I have no shame! Catching up on Scandal, laughing at the sweetness of the British Baking Show, and a couple of movies added up reallll quick haha. I also perused the Nordstrom Sale today and got a little bit excited for Fall. It'll be here before we know it! I love summer but it's just too dang hot here right now if you are not by the pool or at the lake.
I wore this Amuse Society dress a few weekends ago in Kansas City because I wanted to be as cool as possible and it totally came through! I love how light and simple the shape is for summer. Perfect to throw on with a bralette and go. My kinda dress! Cute with sandals, sneakers, or my favorite, some Marc Fisher espadrille wedges :)
