I love Pinterest. But, it’s also an outlet of o-v-e-r-w-h-e-l-m-i-n-g-n-e-s-s. You see something you like, just click a button and it’s saved. That makes it so easy to get carried away with so many ideas, because it’s all right in front of your face and so easy to have. (You thought you were a genius to come up with that one idea? Well, just go on Pinterest you’ll be humbled a little bit.) Every idea is there.. so it seems sometimes! So, let’s think like capsule wardrobest (yes, just made that one up) in our approach with our Pinterest boards. What pins do we really love? Really inspire us? What pins are our hands-down must-keeps?
I am feeling the challenge today to try and share with you my style with the limit of just ten (just TEN!!) of my favorite pins on Pinterest. And with each one, I’ll explain just why I chose it. (Deep breathe) Ok, here we go:
It’s hard not to love everything about this photo by The Wolf and the Wildflower. I just can’t help but look at it, and feel like a sort of a perfection was captured in this lifestyle scene. Featuring Darling Magazine, pour-over coffee, a big mug, eucalyptus, and a beautiful hand-made coffee table with hair-pin legs attached to a reclaimed piece of wood. Not to mention, this rug and couch is right on point. My hope is to soon find the perfect piece of wood to recreate this coffee table in my husband and I’s own little home.
Yes, I love lifestyle captures. And, I think baby wearing is too much sweetness to handle. I love this everyday moment here: fresh french pressed coffee in hand, baby snuggled close in this Solly Wrap, the mamas simple, chic outfit, the dog right in her way of where she is stepping (let’s be real), and a clean simple kitchen in a small space. Also, I love her curls, and dream that my life might look something like this one day when I have a little one. Photo by the Solly Baby Wrap.
This has turned into a trend it seems, but I really don’t care. It’s lovely! Dried flowers hanging from a simple, wooden coat wrack, With the added beautiful and brilliant product by Letter Folk Co. for your own quoting and inspiring yourself with exactly the words you want… where ever you want.

I know that in the future, with my husband and I chasing dreams that belong to a bigger city than the one we currently reside in, we will likely be stepping into the smallest space we’ve had yet. So, having a desk that goes up, rather than out, seems like a great small space solution. As well, this space is just simple. Exactly how a space of productivity should be. Between that eames chair, a few lovely details on the shelves like the flowing plant and leather journal, and the beachy-tote for all the toting, I am in love with the feel of this capture found on Pinterest.
While I tend to love the clean simple (and cheap) lines that come with IKEA furniture, I love the character and innovative feel that comes with these natural wood stained shelfs. Featuring multiple small plants, a few magazine spines, glass vases and simple white candles, the display is simple and still interesting and engaging. Can’t pass this capture shared by Emily Henderson.
Amanda Watters from Home Song Blog does details so beautifully. I can’t get over this capture of hers. And, I will be honest, I chose my essential oil diffuser after being inspired by how beautiful it is in this picture. Iced coffee, diffusing oils, and about to dive into a few magazines and a journal in this simple, clean, yet organic space of character. How refreshing. All of the details here capture me, exemplifying rest, peace, and gentle-living.
Small details. I love this common trend of hanging mirrors on the wall with the string attached above. I love the organic storage jars and the eucalyptus displayed on the mirror. Clean, simple, & fresh. Photo via The Merry Thought.
Getting away from home, ordering a latte, sitting down with a journal and Bible in hand, whilst the cooler day grows outside and it’s exactly sweater weather. I love this capture inspiring taking time to be slow, enjoying yourself, processing yourself, writing your story through the process of journaling. And, allowing God to inspire you and teach you who you really are. What a perfect day in a coffee shop. Capture via Miss Literati.
Why is this in my top ten? Because it represents something to me: having details that are quality. That you love! Not because you are stinking’ rich, but because you buy less stuff and just a few things you really love that will last. That’s a lifestyle I am striving for. Not just, less is more, but less that is more. 😉 Photo via Scout Mob
Ok, ok, this photo completely throws off any aesthetic, especially throwing a celebrity in the picture, but in general, I love Emma Stone’s style choices and the fact that I look a little bit like her makes it a little less hard to imagine how the outfit would compliment my hair and skin tone. Camel colored details, black skinny’s, a chic jacket, and some cute sunnies. I can’t get over how much I love this look. And, it pretty much sums up a look I could go for everyday, out and about, running errands, walking the city, grabbing a coffee… you know, all the things.
Well, those are my top ten! I hope this has inspired you today. It’s time that we know ourselves in a world of endless possibility. How would we best express ourselves in a time of limitation? This is the heart behind a capsule wardrobe. But, I think this is a mindset we should carry into every aspect of our life.
What defines your style? Take the challenge today and choose your top TEN pins that truly express you. Go!
