Happy September! Today basically marks the official kick-off to my favorite time of the year…FALL! We’ve got another six weeks or so before the weather actually starts to cool down here in Arizona but I’m still excited that we’ll be saying goodbye to triple digits soon enough. Bring on all the pumpkin spice everything!
In case you missed my announcement on Instagram yesterday (I saved it to my stories under capsule series), I’m so excited to be kicking off a brand new series today on the blog! I’ll be styling 10 items on the blog each month several different ways over the course of the month. For the month of September, I’ve selected 10 items from Target and created 25 different outfits using just these 10 items! I can’t wait to start sharing all of the different outfits but first I want to share the items I’ll be styling. I’ll be sharing the outfits daily on Instagram (starting tonight — be on the lookout!) and in the LIKEtoKNOW.it app and doing weekly recaps here on the blog.
You’ll notice that most of the items I’ve selected for this month’s capsule wardrobe are fall focused since that’s likely what most of you are starting to shop for now. I also realize the weather might not be cooperating for all the fall vibes so in addition to the 25 outfits, I’ll be showing you how I style these items for warmer weather with items I already have in my closet.
So, what inspired this new series? As a busy mom of 2, I often feel overwhelmed with what to wear and end up throwing on the same old tee and yoga pants. I’ve really missed styling outfits but don’t have nearly as much time to shop for cute clothes and get ready these days. I decided to get back to my blogging roots and why I created this space in the first place – to get creative with styling outfits! It was such a fun challenge to style these 10 items 25 different ways and I can’t wait to get started on this fun new monthly capsule wardrobe series!
Looking ahead to October, I won’t necessarily be going out and buying another 10 new items. My hope is to reuse some of these items for next month’s 10 capsule items as well! I’d love some feedback on if going forward you’d prefer all of the pieces be from the same store (to save on shipping) or if you’d rather see items from several stores. Any input/feedback is appreciated as I’d love for you to participate in this with me!
I’ll be using the hashtag #bbrmonthlycapsule for all of my posts on Instagram so you can easily search for all of my outfits using that hashtag. If you end up styling some of the items, feel free to use the hashtag as well so we can all get even more ideas!

I’ll be sharing more on why I love each item in my upcoming posts but here’s a quick look at everything for the month of September! Please let me know if you have any other questions or feedback on how I can make this work best for everyone! Can’t wait to get started. 🙂
