What’s Inside My Wardrobe: A Complete Closet Inventory

Three years ago I woke up early one morning, gazed deeply upon the sparkly baubles of my colorful closet and foggily pondered three questions: Who am I, what am I going to wear, and why is the theme song to “Reading Rainbow” stuck in my head? In retrospect the answer to that last quandary was obvious (and if RR is now stuck in your head, might I offer a soothing classic that will effectively obliterate anything else on your mind).

Packing List: Summer Music Festival Glamping

Everlane backpack and v-neck, Lou & Grey shorts. Photos by Stu Haluski. I’m off to Washington, DC to kick off a week of champagne, girl talk, glamping, and killer music at Firefly Festival. Working through the details of what to bring on the trip, the bridesmaids and I put together a spreadsheet chock-full of festival essentials, tips and tricks, and a detailed packing list that is universally handy for any hot and humid summer festival – especially if you’re flying! From wardrobe to beauty bag to handy tools, this list covers everything I’m taking to DC and Deleware for six days… And it’s carry-on friendly! Save the glamping supplies and groceries, I’ve tucked every item on these lists into one Bric’s duffle and an Everlane backpack (more packing tips right this way). And whether the hot summer weather takes you to Firefly (say hi?) Bonaroo, Coachella, Hangout, or Ultra – and whether you’re camping, glamping, B&Bing, or couch surfing – safe travels and travel well!   JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser.

A Simpler Wardrobe: Summer Outfits + A New Leaf

These are outfits I wore the first summer after I set out to whittle down my wardrobe. Here’s what the fall and winter and spring before looked like. How I used to get dressed. How I got started on wardrobe editing. First lessons learned. An interview on my Nothing New Challenge. If you’ve visited this blog before or follow on social media, you’re probably wondering where A Native Blonde has off and disappeared to. I’m still here! The thing is, ANB didn’t seem to fit right anymore and I’m not sure why really – maybe it’s that summer itch to change? Growing a bit older? A paradigm shift? Susan Miller’s lunar eclipse hoorah? Who knows. “Rose & Fig” has grown on me as it’s turned over in my mind for the past couple of weeks. Tonight I finally decided, well, let’s do this already! Going forward I hope to spend more time around here, at any rate, and I am so grateful for your support and thoughts. I hope you find this notebook useful, and …

A Simpler Wardrobe: Spring Outfits + Nothing New Challenge

These are outfits I wore the first spring after I set out to whittle down my wardrobe. Here’s what the fall and winter before looked like, and summer ahead. How I used to get dressed. How I got started on wardrobe editing. First lessons learned. An interview on my Nothing New Challenge.  2014 Jan 8, 2014 Well now, where were we? Ah yes, 2013 and waxing poetic about the secret lives of secondhand party tops. Right. So. Happy new year to you! I am back from the abyss of a very restorative winter break that was filled with surprises. This year brings me a new position at work, a new backyard, the closure of a three-month suede bootie search, a fresh-from-Roatan tan, and a very special piece of chocolate. If you follow me on Instagram you may have already spied this post. I am one lucky girl to have such a kind and wonderful best friend (who knows that my adoration for chocolate conquers all precious stones), and even luckier to get to spend the …
