What is the Capsule Guide & Closet Outfit Planner?
The capsule guides offer a 27-piece wardrobe which could give you up to 150 different outfits to wear.
Once you find out what you already have in your closet, you can choose which of the remaining pieces you want to buy, and there are store links you can use to purchase them. Or you can find them elsewhere (thrift stores, your mom's or sister's closet, whatever.)
This season's guides are designed with fall and winter trends in mind, and new guides will be created for spring and summer.
There are six variations, so when you buy it for her, you can choose which one to give her, or let her pick it out herself after Christmas.
Each guide has a different color palette, with four colors - two neutrals and two accent colors - and you can choose based on her favorite colors or ones you know she looks good in. Or, leave it all up to her!
Who the Capsule Guides are Perfect for...
Capsule guides are perfect for the women or young ladies in your life who fit into one of two categories...
(1) They already have a pretty solid sense of style. They basically know what they like or what looks good on them. But they get bored with what they are wearing, and end up buying new clothes so they can have something new to wear.
The capsule guides are perfect because they offer up to 150 outfit combinations. So that's, potentially, 150 outfits without having to buy new clothes.
(2) Capsule guides also are perfect for someone who feels insecure about putting outfits together. She wants to express herself with style, and look well-dressed, but when it comes to what's in her closet, she often feels unsure about what how to create the kind of looks she wants most.
Because it gives you fall and winter trend colors and styles, 30 actual pictured outfit ideas and a chart that offers matching for up to 150 outfits, the capsule guide does the outfit planning for her.
At only $27 each, that's an affordable way to offer style to someone you care about, this Christmas. To learn more about them and what they include, go here: capsule guides.

I know we are all expecting this to be a different Christmas than we are used to, and if mine were a different kind of blog, I'd spend more time urging you to take good care of yourself, especially if these changes create anxiety, stress, disappointment or sadness.
But from what I am reading, I do get the impression that shopping sooner rather than later is a good idea, especially if you already have specific gifts in mind. Retailers are likely to offer deeper discounts, but less inventory.
First, figure out the total you can afford to spend on gifts. Then, make a list of the people you’d like to give to and allocate portions of your budget toward each person. - CountryLiving.com
Decide on Your Budget & Make Your List
Don't Forget Your Fashionistas: Give the Gift of Style
For me, buying one or two new fall trend pieces, planning my fall wardrobe and even getting out my old favorites has helped add some normalcy to this season, even though I still am not leaving the house as often as I used to do.
If you have been wondering what to get for Christmas for the teenage daughters, college-age fashionistas, mothers or mothers-in-law on your list, I encourage you to consider style.
Even if the gift is small. And especially, if that is something you would normally do around this time of year.
Maybe Christmas won't quite be Christmas without a new sweater, or necklace, or whatever she likes. I'd encourage you to keep other traditions, too, like wearing red or green, if you normally do that.
For the next couple of days, I will tell you about my own Christmas offerings, as style gift ideas, and for one of them, I've added a little something that I hope will help make shopping easier. But whether you plan to shop locally, online or in the stores, it's definitely not too early to get started.
See you tomorrow!
There are many more women and moms working from home right now, than ever before, due to the pandemic, according to research. And experts also suggest that that may not change, once the dust has cleared, because many of us may go right on working at home.
Many women who were asked, mentioned that one of the things they liked best about working from home was the opportunity to dress more casually than usual. But not so fast, work-from-home mom...
Work from Home Moms: the Best Way to Dress for Work
Other similar studies suggest that when you are working with others, the way you dress influences the impression you make. While that idea is not really news, what was interesting was that it had an impact on the consequences of their negotiations, too, because the better dressed were also better at negotiating.
A similar conclusion is that we think better, or at a higher cognitive level, according to the New York Times, when we are dressed up, than we do when we are not.
So my takeaway, for my own work, is that it’s not just important for me to dress well for a style day with a client, it’s also important to get dressed and dress well, when all I will be doing is writing a blog post or creating an offering for my clients.
It will help to ensure that they get my very best work, in whatever capacity they encounter it.
But in my opinion, dressing well might not mean the same thing for every person working from home.
Because for me, if I am dressed up as if for a job interview, I am likely to overfocus on how uncomfy I am, and also likely not to feel like my true self. On the other hand, if I am best-dressed by my own standards, in JeanineWear, then I am probably more likely to do my best work.
I am planning to give this a try, and report back on my results.
If you are a work from home mom, what’s your takeaway?
See you tomorrow!
My mission is to help you discover, embrace and celebrate your own beauty and style.
Thanks for dropping by! I'll see you soon.
