This season I’m looking forward to elevating my look a little. I’m partnering with Keds to do just that, by pairing fashion forward pieces with some of my more classic favorites.
Think runway meets the streets.
Like, with this look, lace isn’t exactly something that I own a ton of. I can honestly say that I can count the lace pieces I have on one hand, and even that’s being generous. But, when worn with casual, wear any and everywhere sneakers and my staple vintage inspired jeans, you get a look that is both cutting edge and trendy, yet minimalistic and chic at the same time.
My goal is to curate a fall wardrobe that can create outfits to take you from watching football, to apple picking, to wandering the city, to whatever.
As much as I love summer, fall fashion is worth the drop in temperature. The weather isn’t the only thing changing, though. I’ve been up to a lot!
Throwing out expired makeup, and donating clothes that I don’t wear, inspired by my recent failed attempt at a capsule wardrobe.
But my love of shopping is still very very strong. I try to be more responsible by shopping secondhand first. And for so many reasons.
I save money and, to an extent, the environment. I love it! And my new to me Madewell clothes from thredUP. For under $50 I was able to get three pairs of like new jeans and a nice cozy sweater. That’s literally less than half of a pair of brand new jeans!
If you’ve never used thredUP before, here’s a little incentive, save even more by using code YHJ75 for $30 off your purchase of $75 or more, or WQA50 for $50 off your purchase of $125 or more!
The event will be this Thursday, October 6th from 6PM – 8PM at Madewell Newbury, located at 329 Newbury Street, Boston, Massachusetts. Whether you’re in need of new jeans, boots, or sweaters for this fall, you definitely want to pop into Madewell for this event.
Not really looking for anything specific for the season?
That’s fine! You can still come by to see the three of us for some fall style tips, and check out Madewell’s newest fall arrivals. While you’re there you can enjoy some snacks (and sips), and enjoy 20% off your purchase of $125 or more!
Building a capsule wardrobe is an idea the I’ve toyed with for a while now. Pinterest (and lack of closet space) makes the minimalist approach to style seem very appealing.
The concept of a capsule wardrobe is that you limit your wardrobe to a few key pieces. Mixing and matching what you have to maximize outfit potential without the stress or overwhelm that comes from having too many options. Most capsule wardrobes I’ve come across have consisted of 30 items. I opted for 38 pieces, because I felt too restricted with anything less than that. You, however, can select whatever number of pieces you feel comfortable with. Keep in mind that less is more.
For the month of September, I decided (with a little inspiration) to simplify my closet and give a capsule wardrobe challenge a try. Each week I’ll share some of my favorite looks on Instagram using the hashtag #tspcapsule. But, make sure to check back here to see them all!
To start building my capsule wardrobe, I started from the bottom. Literally. I’m a jeans girl and don’t really wear a ton of other bottoms, so I selected four pairs of jeans and a simple black pencil skirt.
My favorite template can be found on the blog Selective Potential. I definitely gave it a Twenty Something Plus twist, but have something to use as a guideline was very helpful!

It seems like everyone is excited for fall. Pumpkin soy latte this, blanket scarf that…
I mean I love wearing sweaters too, but right now my desire to wear open toes shoes definitely outweighs my urge to go apple picking. And right now it’s still warm enough to do both. Yay for being able to continue rocking your sandals while also prepping for Halloween!
A super easy way to take your summer sandals and make them feel a little more this season? Giving yourself a autumn colored pedi is the perfect way to transition your sandals for fall!
My mom gave me these OPI minis that she’d been holding onto. I’m currently wearing Malaga Wine, but will probably switch to Lincoln Park After Dark later this week…
The only way to know for sure is to stalk my Instagram feed.
Can you tell that summer is my favorite season? Maybe I just need some apple crisp in my life…
