Today is the day before my 30th birthday(!), so I thought it would be fun to reflect on the 10 biggest lessons I learned in my 20’s.

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.

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…)
