This is yet another outfit we shot pre-haircut — it’s just too good not to share.
How was your weekend?
Ours was full of low-key friend gatherings — the best kind of weekend. And then yesterday I got to hang out at Madewell and chat about style + capsule wardrobes.
To those of you who stopped by — thank you. It was so special to put a face to a name and get to hear your stories. From the warmest place in my heart, thank you for spending your Sunday morning with me. I hope you had as much fun as I did.
Want to know the most-asked question from yesterday? It might surprise you.
It was: How do I build a maternity capsule wardrobe?
As much as I wish I could help, I feel that this topic deserves wisdom from women who have been there. Since I don’t have kids, I’m turning to you. Have you ever built a maternity capsule wardrobe? Have you ever blogged about it? If so, share your best advice or link to your blog.
In the meantime, I’ll leave you with a few articles + quotes on the topic:
When people ask me about maternity capsule wardrobes, I recommend Laura’s blog. Her approach is honest and creative. I especially love how she’s not afraid to experiment with her wardrobe until she finds a solution that works for her life. How fascinating!
This article from Putting Me Together gives a detailed, yet approachable method to building a maternity capsule wardrobe.
I’ve always loved Sarah Sherman Samuel’s style, and this year her bump style was especially fun to watch. In one of her posts, she says, “If I was to leave you with one piece of advice, for those of you that are just starting to grow a bump, is to invest in a quality pair of maternity jeans. A good pair of maternity jeans and a T-shirt have literally been all I’ve been wearing. Both work great for everyday comfort and if the occasion does arise for me to adventure out, I just throw on a jacket and a bangle or two and head out the door.”
