New site

September 10, 2017

Hi friends,

Welcome to my new site!  I’ve been been blogging in some form or another for years now, finding my home for Capsule Closet on tumblr in 2014.  It was a really easy place to blog, and a super low-maintenance place to post, but lately I’ve been starting to feel like it’s something I could stand to take a bit more seriously, hence the change.

I’m always hungry for a fresh start–a huge reason why I’m still employing a seasonal capsule wardrobe approach to dressing–and I wanted to have a little more control over how my photos and text display.  If I’m honest with myself, I wanted to make this change a lot sooner, but had to work through some internalized misogyny about whether the kind of topics I was interested in were worth my time, whether my voice was worth sharing, and whether anyone would want to look at my face and body.  But I’ve found such a lovely, lovely community of women blogging and instagramming and talking about slow fashion, and you all have inspired me.

I still may not be the most prolific blogger (I’ll definitely have some extremely busy periods at work that occasionally limit my posting), and I’ll be working out the kinks of this new site for a while (please forgive me), but my goal is to write more thoughtfully here, and hopefully make it all look a little prettier.

Thanks for following along.

<3 Lo

    Hey Lo, I’ve definitely wrestled with some of the same thoughts, though less now. Sometimes I worry that what I write about is ‘too shallow’ even. But the community I’ve connected with through blogging and instagram is wonderful, intelligent and inspirational. I’m excited for this new phase of your blog!
