As I took a step back and examined my wardrobe for this fall capsule experiment, I started to see trends in not just the silhouettes I was wearing, but in the pieces I wanted to pull out again and again.
I love clothes that make me feel something. Clothes that have a story, a maker, and an artist behind them.
In the course of running this blog I’ve found myself exposed to some pretty rad women behind some extremely amazing labels. I’m proud to wear a bunch of these labels and I get excited every time I get to introduce them to you. Not because any of them are paying me to do so, but truly just because I think they have unique points of view and are creating really quality pieces. I’m trying to slow my fashion down and only own things that make me proud to wear them. It’s not easy, because each piece is an investment, but it’s one I believe in.
The first time I tried on this flowing top from The Podolls, I started swishing around and telling people I just “felt like an artist” (YES, I AM that dorky in real life) … and then I knew I had to buy it. It’s pretty much how I felt when I tried on my wedding dress for the first time … as soon as I put it on I started dancing. Sometimes you just know.
My pants are from a brand I found via instagram recently called Elizabeth Suzann… and now I’m on a mission to own every piece they make. I love how these pants are cut – the wide pockets make them the perfect work pants. I love the durable cotton canvas and I can see myself wearing these when I’m 60, working in my studio in my old farmhouse (hey, I can dream….)
The shoes … well, those I borrowed from Kat. Why don’t we live next door to each other?!
Life is hard.
