Building a capsule wardrobe – All black in a chilly building

Capsule wardrobes always fascinated me because it doesn’t seem like a lot of clothes, but you can get so many combinations out of them! They’re also great for when you’re limited by dress code. I’ve been wanting to build one for a while….but it’s hard to do without specific guidelines. But now I have two- the dress code at my work is all black or mostly black. PLUS, the building is kept very chilly.

July OOTD’s – Duality in shades of grey

If there was one word that describes me, it would be “duality”. I often feel like my life is cinematic reel of highs and lows. And the month of July had been riddled with them. It was difficult picking four outfits that really represented July since I’ve been all over the place with work, weekend trips, and casual days. So in the theme of duality, I’ve chosen two formal outfits and two casual ones.
