Instagram Lately

| |

Life has been busy these last few months!  The last time I did an Instagram Lately post was in June, wow how time flies!  If you have been following my blog recently you’ll see I’m posting 1 or 2 times a week and here is why…

Some of you may know that my daughter has an inoperable brain tumor, which I shared on the blog back in the Summer.  She took chemo and had radiation treatments for 6 weeks in the Summer and a month ago she started her first cycle of a stronger dose of chemo.  A couple of months ago she had an MRI scan and it showed that her tumor has shrank 50%!!!  She will continue the cycles of chemo for several more months.  There have been so many people praying for her!  It’s a blessing that she is able to be homeschooled this year so we can work around doctor appointments and routine lab work.  She’s doing so well and her oncologist has been amazed at her improvements.  She has spells of nausea and fatigue when she takes the chemo, but she is feeling better right now.  She has truly been a trooper through all this and we all have a positive attitude, she especially does, that she will make it through it.

With my calendar being full, I have to fit in blog posts and other Classy Yet Trendy projects in between!  I have all the Fall 2018 capsule wardrobe eBooks available in the Capsule Wardrobe eBook Store, including Simplified Style: A Year-Round Core Closet Essentials Capsule Wardrobe and this one…

The Essential Capsule Closet - How To Create Your Own Custom Wardrobe


Here are a few outfit photos I’ve shared on my Instagram account (@classyyettrendy) lately, all from my Fall capsule wardrobe:

Instagram September 2018 camo tee skinny jeans Tory Burch sandals

Outfit Details:

Express camo tee (love it! fits perfectly!)
ankle skinny jeans (my favorite blue jeans!)
similar black sunglasses
Miller sandals in “Makeup” color (I wear wear these a lot!)
Soho Disco crossbody / similar crossbody

Since camo is trending this Fall, I wanted to include a camo tee.  The one I had stored away, that I wore in this blog post 3 years ago, was worn and needed replacing.  I found this v-neck camo tee online and instantly loved the pattern.  When it arrived in the mail I tried it on, it fit perfectly and was buttery soft!  It’s my favorite tee in my Fall capsule wardrobe!

Outfit Details:

similar mauve twist top
gray raw hem jeans
silver druzy necklace
silver adjustable bracelet
Small Marsden leather tote in “Light Oak” (also comes in black) On Sale!
snake pattern mules (Have received so many compliments on these!)
Trellis Rug in “Nickel” (exact)

I’ve gotten so many compliments on these snake patterned mules!  They are super comfy and since the pattern is a neutral black and white, they perfect to wear with any outfits.  I’m carrying my Tory Burch small marsden leather tote in “light oak”, which I bought in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in July.  It also comes in black.


Instagram September 2018 - gray tie front tee, olive jeans, snake pattern mules

Outfit Details:

gray tie front tee
olive jeans
claire gold y-necklace

Well, here are these snake patterned mules again!  This time, I wore them with a simple Fall transition outfit…my gray tie front tee and olive jeans from my Fall capsule wardrobe.


Instagram September 2018 - graphic tee gray cardigan skinny jeans ballet flats

Outfit Details:

Coldplay graphic tee
similar gray cardigan
ankle skinny jeans (my favorite blue jeans!)
gold filigree necklace
gold adjustable bracelet
taupey-gray Mercer bag
beige ballet flats (So Comfy!)

I’m a Coldplay fan, so I thought I would add a graphic tee to my Fall capsule wardrobe!  We were going to eat at a restaurant I knew would be cold, so I threw on my gray cardigan to complete my outfit.


Instagram September 2018 - J Crew striped top, black jeans, beige cardigan, Tory Burch flats

Outfit Details:

striped 3/4″ sleeve tee
black jeans
beige cardigan
rose gold pendant necklace (similar, similar)
Minnie black flats (I get compliments everytime I wear these!) (similar, budget-friendly)

Yesterday it was a rainy and gloomy day and was in the low 70’s, so this cardigan outfit with comfy flats was perfect.  I love wearing all neutrals!

    I would of never put gray and olive together but it looks perfect. Last year you showed me how beige and black complement each other so beautifully. Thanks for your great website!

  4. Thank you so much for the update and I am so pleased to hear that she is showing progress and fighting this thing so bravely. You have been in my thoughts constantly and every time I receive an email or see a post I pray for you and for her to have a complete and speedy recovery. Hang in there!

  5. I’m so glad to hear that your daughter is recovering well!

    I love your post! I like all these outfits and can’t wait to see what you post for october.

  6. I am so glad your daughter is doing well! She (and you) have been in my thoughts since her diagnosis last summer. I hope this next round of chemo is just the knockout punch needed to return her to complete health.

    Your outfits are lovely as always. I love your capsules so much … they are perfect for women who want to look cute but don’t have a lot of time to put themselves together on a daily basis. Which would be most of us, really.

  7. I love your mixtures of color and nude is especially nice with the camo and olive items, I have a came top that is beige, taupe and pink/dusty rose that looks so good with khakis and a pair of dusty rose fringed jeans, with nude sandals or flats of course, and if chilly a light weight oatmeal sweater, looks great together and rose gold complements well. Thanks for hints. Best wishes for your daughter’s wellness, following a healthy plant based diet, and such things as yoga and therapeutic massage are some alternative offerings at our community hospital for person’s undergoing treatments. It is also very relaxing and restorative too. I love yoga, eating well just follows exercise, and massage helps circuation and removes toxins. Just some ideas you and your daughter may want to look into. Holistic care, whole body, including your mind has great benefits. Best wishes.

  18. Prayers for your daughter and family…I am so glad Pinterest suggested yyour blog…I saw that you said you stored a tee…is that what you do with items you already have but don’t want in your current capsule but also don’t want to part with?

  19. Thank you Maggie for your prayers! Yes, that’s exactly what I do with pieces that are not in my current season capsule. I store them in plastic bins on their side of my closet.

  20. As with all your lovely followers great news that your daughter is doing well, hope she continues. Well done for finding time to continue your blog.

    Definately will find the time to ‘shop my wardrobe’ and start my fall capsule, like you I am looking after someone. Don’t forget to take care of yourself too.
