Fall/Winter Capsule Wardrobe (Nursing Friendly)

You may or may not have heard of capsule wardrobes, but here’s the deal: you pick out a certain number of clothing and only wear outfits from those articles for a certain amount of time. Since I’m in a weird stage body-wise right now (recently had a baby and breastfeeding), I gravitate towards the same outfits anyway, but wanted to be more intentional about it. I’m  a huge proponent of getting rid of things I don’t need, especially clothes, and I’ve also recently decided to only buy clothes that really and truly fit and make me happy. Quality over quantity.

Here is my simple list (I have not included athletic wear, leggings and sweats):

Bottoms:
2 pairs jeans (these and these)
1 pair black jeans
1 pair colored pants (need to update, maybe these?)
1 patterned skirt

Outerwear:
1 neutral cardigan
1 black cardigan
1 cream/white sweater
1 colored sweater
1 striped sweater
1 green utility vest

Tops:
1 plaid shirt
1 chambray shirt
2 grey shirts (1 light, 1 dark)
1 black & white striped shirt
2 dresses

Shoes:
2 pair booties
1 pair boots
1 pair Toms

Accessories:
2 scarves
a couple necklaces & pairs of earrings

Have  you ever done a capsule wardrobe? Any tips?

Maternity Shoot

Several weeks ago, the very talented Sarah Beth Sutter Photography did a little maternity shoot for us. I was almost 26 weeks pregnant during this shoot, so not super big, but I love all the pictures and thought I would share my favorites with you all.

Heidi: dress // necklace // booties (similar)
Loren: shirt (similar) // jeans // shoes // watch

Five on Friday [fall style edition] // 10-21-16

Now that we are in the middle of fall and it’s actually turning colder, it’s time to pull out all the fall outfits! Here are some of my favorite must haves, courtesy of my Pinterest page.

Stripes are like a neutral, they go with everything // Shop similar pieces on Effinshop.com xx: ONE // Neutrals (+ stripes.) I feel like most articles of clothing in my closet are some form of neutral. Can’t go wrong with black, grey and taupe! I recently got this sweater that I plan to wear all fall and winter.

Fall stripes.:
TWO // Olive vest. I finally found this olive vest and there are just so many ways to style it! Definitely my current favorite piece of clothing.

THREE // Dress, scarf, vest (or cardigan) and boots. This is the perfect way to style those summer dresses in the fall.

Today's OOTD! You might say we're a little excited for fall fashion.: FOUR // Chambray shirt and colored jeans. I wear my red jeans at least once every week (similar here) and often pair it with a chambray shirt for a simple, classy look.

Make room in your closet, these transitional booties will be your best friend this fall! This simple and chic style features a faux suede upper, western-style paneling and stitching detail, size zippe:
FIVE // Booties. ALL DAY EVERY DAY. I bought this pair a few weeks ago and I’ve worn them practically every day since then. They are so versatile and match pretty much everything. I’ve almost forgotten about the other pairs in my closet!

What’s your most important fall fashion piece?
