This capsule thing is harder than I thought...  Fall is such a weird season clothing wise in Minnesota.  September can still be summer-like but November is often wintery... Oy.  Plus, I was doing some piled up laundry last night and MAN, do I have a lot of clothes to go through.  I'm pretty sure I don't wear/fit into half of them but... daunting.  Plus, I have to go through Ms. Monster's clothing as well pretty soon.  She's starting preschool in a week and a half, but that's a whole other story.

So far I'm thinking of trying to stick with the prescribed amounts of clothing from the capsule wardrobe, which is 9 pairs of shoes, 9 bottoms, 15 tops, 2 dresses, and 2 jackets to equal 37 items of clothing. 

So far I've got:

2 jackets
2 dresses
6 tops
6 pairs of shoes
5 bottoms

lots to do before Monday. 

PS How nice is it when a month starts on a Monday? I love it. :)

wardrobe building

I've been thinking about clothes a lot lately... like A LOT.  Perhaps it's because I like to visit many fashion blogs or perhaps because I've just started a new job and have to get dressed before leaving the house now... but any way, clothes have been on my mind.  I'm working on cleaning out my wardrobe and organizing my closet (thanks liz!!).  The other day I read this, which led me to this, and I've decided to jump on board with it.  I've just been in the planning stages so far but I'm getting excited to begin.  Fall in my world starts in September so my fall capsule will be September thru November.  yee-haw!

Solid food

I think mr goo has been fully indoctrinated into the world of eating. Today he tried chicken, feta cheese, artichoke hearts, and orange sherbet (along with his baby food).Liked it all but wasn't sold on the sherbet. I think the only trouble we'll have feeding this boy will be him eating us out of house and home... By the way, where did that expression come from anyway?
