10 Piece Capsule Wardrobe Challenge

This Fall I decided to live with less and decided to hold off buying any new clothes for the month of October. So, to kick this off, I did 10x10 Challenge and invited others to join me. That means I chose 10 items in my wardrobe and I wore them 10 different ways over 10 days.

WHY? (to find out what I learned, keep reading!)

  • I want to challenge myself to live with less and maximize what I already own.
  • I want to spend less. I am not going to buy anything new for one month.
  • I will be more intentional and creative with my clothes.

THE BASIC GUIDELINES

  2. Style those items into 10 DIFFERENT OUTFITS

It's our instinct to feel safe and we all have our own individual tolerance for being able to push past those safe guards. I believe in order to feel more confident with who we are and in our own skin, then you need to push past those limitations you have created for yourself. In essence, give your comfort zone the finger.

Why should be push past them? Because that is where growth and change can happen. It is also where you start to feel your confidence grow on the inside, which will start to show on the outside. If you want the next generation to stand up for...

YSJ Love, Styled 3 Ways

I live in a small, but mighty city in Atlantic Canada. Its residents sometimes refer to it as Saint Awesome or YSJ, but on a map, it is called Saint John. It is located in the picturesque Province of New Brunswick and you will find it nestled by the Atlantic Ocean. I love Saint John for numerous reasons. One of those reasons is our amazing entrepreneurs and small businesses. We have those who were born and raised in Saint John and those who are CHOOSING our city to set up shop and follow their passion. As a Personal Stylist, I love to support my local boutique shops when I take my clients shopping and especially when I shop for myself.
