Whatever is Lovely #1 ~ 2016

is it the year of capsule wardrobe for you....

Happy first Friday of 2016! It's also the first Whatever is Lovely of the new year. This first edition is dedicated to capsule wardrobes. If you haven't been interested in a capsule wardrobe before, I hope you're warming to the idea just a little bit. Although they may appear constricting, they really pose lots of benefits. With that thought in mind, I wanted to share some great blogs that have done capsules really well. 1. Un-fancy is great place to begin for starting a capsule, particularly ... Continue Reading...

Let’s Be Shop Free for 3!

Welcome to Let's Be Shop Free for 3! I'm stepping back a couple of days to January 1st when I revealed my word{s} for the year. Those words {simplify, satisfied and stewardship} directly play into today's post. How so? Well, I decided that I would take a break from shopping and enjoy my Winter Seasonal Capsule. I'm embracing a simplified wardrobe while being a good steward of my money and saying yes to being satisfied with what I already own. It feels good, friends! Have you thought about ...

Let’s Take the Plunge!

hello closet

Are you ready to take the plunge? The closet purging plunge that is! Maybe just reducing or editing would be better words for you but for me it was more of a purge. And yes, you can do this! Welcome to Closet Purging 101! Now, I admit it right off the bat, I do not know all there is to a complete closet purging {or reducing or editing}. I think there are quite a few variables involved. Just as we are all individuals, I think that creates the license to be okay with your own individual way ... Continue Reading...

I’m on a Mission!

Mission Statement(1)

It's about words and phrases and ideas here at the beginning of 2016. My focus words are set, my long-term vision has been determined but one thing was missing for me. It was a mission statement. I felt like this was another piece to the focus puzzle that was missing.  I wanted to be true to my voice and not side-tracked in my personal life and through my blog so I set about writing and editing again. After much thought I put this together. For me, the mission statement is much more important ... Continue Reading...

I’ve Got a Vision!

Vision Statement(1)

Have you ever felt a little unsettled about something? Sometime in 2015 I began to feel unsettled with my blog. I felt as though I was getting  lost. I often wondered about my real voice. Where had it gone? What message did I want to convey? Had I gotten lost? Did I have my own vision? I did have ideas but I hadn't concentrated my mind and time on narrowing it down. So...I went on a mission to create my vision for A Lovely Little Wardrobe. Again, it started with words just as I described in ... Continue Reading...

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year

Hello, January! Wow, it's here! Happy New Year, friends. I'm so glad that you're here today as we enter 2016. And YAY for a Happy New Year! January can bring with it blustering cold days and the absence of sunshine, which for me are the perfect storm to cause hibernate. Yet at the same time it's a new year and I don't want to miss out on an opportunity for a restart in many areas of life. Restarts get me pumped! Are you ready for a restart? I for one am looking forward to a new focus, new ... Continue Reading...
