Fall Transition

IMG_6365

Like most people, I am beyond ready to transition into fall. Bring on pumpkin spice lattes, apple picking, scarves and boots. But this year brings more than just a transition into cooler weather, it’s a transition to married life (which to be honest isn’t that big of a change for us personally) and a change into living life on the road.

Zach has been working really hard gutting out the RV – let’s be honest here, it’s not a GlamV yet – and painting everything white. I think we are already on can 15 of white paint. It’s been very fun getting to design every little detail together and figuring out all of the places we want to travel and see.

But as reality sets in, I know I have very limited closet space with our new lifestyle. But for you long-time followers, you know I am no stranger to this. I mean, I practically lived out of a suitcase most of college (see the logs for my Nordstrom internship and study abroad in Italy).

I’ve already been bombarded with emails and comments asking about my capsule closet. To answer, YES, I am doing a capsule closet and I will be making an entire post about it. But I want you all to put input on exactly how you want this to be presented. Do you want a list by category (i.e. tops, bottoms, outerwear) like in the 50 for a Fashionista articles? Or do you want me to break it down in a video? Or do you want a shoppable collage? Just let me know.

But everything in this look is absolutely making the list. These coated leggings are perfect for fall and add a bit of edge to any outfit, all white being so comfortable. This sleeveless turtleneck is perfect for layering and this transitional weather we are currently in (and will probably be in all winter if we head south).

    I am so excited for FAll too! Leaves, corn mazes, boots! EEK! And I am so excited for your future travel posts and your capsule wardrobe. You do them better than anyone! Your college capsule closet post was the very first post I ever read of yours. YOu should totally do your on-the-road wardrobe the same way!!

    i have followed your blog for a long time and i actually loved your posts from your internship and study-abroad. they were so creative with a limited number of pieces – i really want that kind of simplicity in my life. i recently decided that my closet is out of control after months of feeling like i have “nothing to wear” despite having 2 overflowing closets! I was inspired by your re-commitment to go back to your style roots by making outfits from a limited number of pieces now that your’re going to be living in a glam-v. after reading your last several posts, I started a little experiment of my own and cut my closet in half (!!) to challenge myself to make better outfits with fewer choices. i’m really looking forward to your capsule wardrobe posts for more inspiration. i would love to see your capsule wardrobe broken down into categories of exactly what you decided to keep in your closet, but i also love the idea of a shoppable collage showing specific outfits that you put together out of your capsule. your outfits are so creative but practical at the same time, i’m excited to see what’s to come!

      Thank you, Katy! What a great challenge. I am certainly working on that post – it’s coming!
