Mary Poppins & Happy Halloween!

Though she is hard to budge from her own church, yesterday, my mom came with us to our church service. That's because my son was performing!

Each October, our church dedicates all the services to God on Broadway. Several Broadway shows are chosen, one for each Sunday. The choir and others dress up in costumes related to each show, they sing at least a few songs from the show and the sermon is related to its message.

This week was our final week and the show was Mary Poppins!

The children have been rehearsing every Sunday since September and my son was so excited to be a part of it. Every year, there is at least one show that the children get to participate in and it's always so much fun for them.

This time, my mom wanted to come to see him...

Though it looks black, my mom's top is actually a dark chocolate brown. And she looked great in it!

I wore yellow, like my son, and since it was one of our first cold mornings this fall, threw on my favorite wrap...


Happy Halloween! :)

3 in 30: The Month in Review

(1) Re-evaluate My Fall Capsule Wardrobe... Now that I have completed the Twenty Twenty September challenge, I feel like I am in a better place to identify what I have that works, what needs to be replaced, what I still need now and what I will need as it gets colder.

I have done well with that this month, and I think I have a pretty good fall capsule wardrobe!!


(2) Create a Dressing Your Truth Type 3 Bedroom... I have spent a month or more working on creating a type 3 wardrobe, but have decided that I would like to support myself with those colors and textures in my bedroom as well.

Still need to order the pillowcases, but I did buy a dressing your truth type 3 nightgown, so in that way, I am sleeping my truth! :)

(3) Create a Structured Homeschooling Plan for October & a Broad Plan for the Rest of the Year... The plan I had, which was to do lesson plans for the whole year, doesn't seem to be working. And I think it is going better to adjust as I go along. But I would like to plan ahead just a smidge.

I appear to have lost my homeschool scheduling mojo! I may carry this goal over to next month. But one positive thing that has come of planning one month at a time is that I can adjust as I go, which I have never done before. So I guess it's okay, all told!

How did you do this month?

A Month of Outfits for Your Fall Capsule Wardrobe: Fall's Best Trends

Casual Capsule Wardrobe for Fall...

In creating your fall capsule wardrobe, the most important recommendation I can give you is to identify your dressing your truth type! Doing so has made a world of difference in the way I feel about getting dressed each day.

Our "Month of Outfits" Extravaganza for Your Fall Wardrobe Capsule...

But in the past few weeks, I have been sharing some tips for building a great capsule wardrobe once you do know what looks best on you. We started with clearing out the closet of anything you don't love and identifying what you already have that can form the foundation for your new fall capsule.

In last week's post, we talked about what a casual capsule wardrobe might look like for you and what a work capsule might include. 

Once you know your dressing your truth type, have identified the colors you want to work with and chosen the number of items in each category your wishes and budget will allow, you can begin to build your fall capsule wardrobe.

Casual Fall Capsule Wardrobe: An Example...

Do you notice that the colors and pieces all mix and match? How many outfits could you create with that capsule? What would you add, if anything? I would add a couple more tops, I think.

How are you doing with your own fall capsule?

Fall Capsule Wardrobe: Tuesday






I wore this the other day while running errands. I did consider wearing a scarf or necklace (it's starting to get cold enough here to do that) but this day was pretty warm.

What are you starting to wear more of now that it's getting colder?

Monday with Mom: Three Generations of Style

Last week, on Monday, my son and I brought my mother breakfast and then, hung out with her for a couple of hours.

Most of the time we don't get our homeschooling started until late morning or early afternoon anyway, so this wasn't too big a change in our routine. But on Mondays, he has a ballroom dancing class, so we had to squeeze in the rest after we got back.

She seemed so happy to have us there! It's fun to treat her every now and again (like bringing her a big McD's sweet tea, which she loves)


Part of my reason for going was to bring her a lot of the clothes I am no longer wearing now that I know I am a dressing your truth type 3. Though she is as well, her coloring has softened over the years and I knew these colors would work better for her. She's much smaller, though, so her next-door neighbor will alter them for her.



My son adores her, so they had a great time hanging out. I had a good time talking with my mom, too, but they act like they are long-lost friends when they see each other...




As we were leaving, we all took pictures around what I think of as Mom's tree. That's because she is known for climbing it whenever she gets the impulse to do so...

3 in 30: Not Much Happening this Week!

NOTE: Nothing New to Report...

 
I decided I desperately needed some time off, from work, from blogging, from this weekly goal-work, etc. So I am writing this post a week in advance and I predict that nothing will have changed. 
 
See you guys next week!  ~~Jeanine

Fall Capsule Wardrobe: Thursday





Last week, believe it or not, I wore the same basic outfit two days in a row, only changing the pants. It was so comfortable and really felt like me! What have you worn lately that feels like you?
