Lately I’ve noticed a big uptick in the amount of interest in capsule wardrobes, but I’ve also noticed a trend to replace every item of clothing you own with a new season. I don’t believe this is in line with what a capsule was meant to be and feel like it’s wasteful to replace your entire wardrobe every few months. Instead I utilize a year-long minimal closet that is more naturally curated instead of replaced as quickly as the trends change. No storing, no sorting, no clean outs every few months, just curating it and being mindful of it in my everyday life. Today I’m sharing a few of my tips and tricks that I use to keep my minimal closet curated in a natural way.
Wearing the Cuyana Alpaca Cape around town as a cape and during my trip to Iceland as a scarf.
With all of my experience packing light and making my travel light packing lists, I think the most common item in all of them is a simple scarf. A scarf serves many functions during travel no matter what type of climate you’re in. It can be used as a scarf, a pillow, a swimsuit cover up, a blanket on a cold flight, or even a nursing cover. The possibilities really are endless! Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite ways to use a scarf, as well as some of my favorite scarves.
With summer coming to a close soon and back to school on the horizon I’ve been thinking a lot about the tradition of back to school shopping. Sometimes it’s hard to think about creating a minimal closet for yourself, let alone a child. My older son has recently taken an interest in shopping for clothing so I devised an activity to do with him to help him define what he likes. Today I’m sharing that with you, along with a free downloadable back to school capsule worksheet. The worksheet will help you define what your child likes and their exact needs for a back to school capsule or even year-round wardrobe.

I live less than an hour south of San Francisco, but in all honesty I don’t get to spend a lot of free time there. I’m always going up for work events and meetings, but it’s rare that I get to go up for a day of fun. When I do, it’s usually in the Summer and it’s spent on the quiet side of San Francisco, the beach side! Today I’ve partnered with & Other Stories. to share a little bit of my adventure there with my friend Elisabeth and a few of my favorites in that area.
