Building your own capsule wardrobe can be a daunting and overwhelming task. The trick, I’ve found, is patience. Don’t be discouraged (or surprised) if it takes a couple of tries to get it right. Even then, once you’re wearing it out in the world, you’ll learn the styling tricks and hacks that fit your lifestyle, and even more so, the ones that don’t. Patience, my friend, it takes patience.
“The hardest thing to accomplish as a mom and a boss babe is balance. Balancing it all can seem impossible, but I’ve learned that doing my best has to be enough because that’s all I have to give.”
"Being ok with the fact that I’m going to work and invest a lot of time in my career, but still be a great mom has been a learning curve. I want my children to grow up with the same strong woman in their life that I had in mine."
Let's tell the fashion industry that we're sick of child labor, we won't tolerate plastic clothes that will take centuries to biodegrade, and we don't give our money to companies who show such disregard for the planet, its people, and its animals. Let's be the change and stop waiting for others to take the reins. It's our chance to make history, and our change to change the world.
Spring is here, and that means women everywhere are cleaning out their wardrobes to make room for new recruits. There's just something about this time of year that makes it a great time to refresh our routines, get a zillion new hair styles, and of course, clean out the old, outdated, or damaged pieces of clothing from our closet. One of the questions I get asked the most is how to start becoming more eco-friendly with respect to fashion choices.
"I was ready, and yes…waiting, for that big moment. I expected my average life to fade into the background and this big moment to carry me away into some new reality like a boat out to sea. But then one day I woke up and decided to stop waiting. I let go of the life I thought I should have and started to focus on the one I was walking through, each day, morning to night. Truthfully, this normal, simple, day-to-day life is beautiful on its own without all the cars, little black dresses, and big, life changing moments."
"For me, the toughest thing I have been learning is how to have the confidence in myself to begin new adventures, and to gain the courage to step out of my shell and be uncomfortable for a bit in order to achieve what I want, and to do what I'm passionate about, trusting the process and having faith that things will come about and manifest when they are supposed to."
If you aren't familiar with the terms fast fashion vs. slow fashion, here's a crash course. Educate yourself, educate others, and live a lifestyle that you can feel good about because every purchase we make is a choice.
