the lively show: how to create a capsule wardrobe with caroline rector (unfancy)

TheLivelyShowWithCarolineRector

Today’s Lively Show episode is the perfect blend of deep introspection, inspiration, practical how-to, and fun!

I’m talking with Caroline Rector of the minimalist fashion blog, Unfancy.

Caroline’s blog focuses on creating a “capsule wardrobe,” which – for her – means wearing the same 37 pieces (including shoes!) for three months at a time.

I knew I had to have her on the show to share the journey that brought her to the concept… and share her insights for those of us who would like to attempt a similar experiment in our own wardrobes.

This show is perfect for anyone interested in trying a creative wardrobe framework, simplifying, discovering their true style, or tackling difficult shopping issues.

Mr. Lively, Franklin, and I have been in our Austin rental home for just over a week now!

Though we still have things to complete on our checklist like hanging art, selecting a new living room rug, and organizing the pantry, the home is taking shape quite nicely.

Boxes have been broken down and recycled, walls have been repainted, and we are getting familiar with our adorable neighborhood (we love Hyde Park!).

Over the past few weeks, I’ve gotten a handful of tweets and emails from people asking me to share the tips we’ve gleaned from this move.

So while the move is still fresh in my mind, I’d like to share 16 of the biggest tips I have to help you make your next move a little more intentional.

Not moving right away? Simply save or Pin this post for the next time you need to pack up and make a change. : )

throw out 100 things challenge

ThrowOut100ThingsChallenge I’m having an informal Chicago meet-up for dinner/drinks on Monday, July 21st @ 7:00pm — at one of my favorite spots in Lincoln Park!  If you would like to attend, please RSVP by emailing me at jess(at)with-intention.com by Sunday, July 20th.   : ) 


With the movers coming in less than two weeks(!), rather than packing, I’ve spent the last week focused on exfoliating items I don’t want to take with me to Austin. Though moving may never be a “simple affair,” having less stuff means less boxes. Less hassle. Less packing time. Less cost. Just less. So, this weekend I did what I always do: I did a Throw Out 100 110+ Things Challenge. (more…)
