What I Wore with Stitch Fix

mixing patterns clothes

This is my 3rd stitch fix box, and probably my most favorite! Maybe it’s the excitement of winter clothes, but I’m pretty sure it has something to do with the feather necklace draped around me–I love it! But first, I tried mixing patterns, and I’m just not sure how it worked out. I like to see a well mixed outfit, but I’ve never attempted it myself. I grabbed my black polka dot cardigan to go… Continue Reading

Camouflage Pants

Camouflage pants

Don’t tell anyone, but I’m practically wearing pajama pants around town when I wear these. They are a drawstring waist, and so comfy, I got another solid color pair. I’ve always been a fan of Camouflage. If you haven’t seen my What I Wore posts before, I will occasionally share my clothing selection. I like to play dress up, and I like to get ideas from around the web, so like to share my style… Continue Reading

What I Wore with Very Jane

I haven’t done a “what I wore” fashion post in a while. For those of you that haven’t seen, I like to share what I wear sometimes, and link up to The Pleated Poppy where others share what they wear, and draw inspiration to mix and max things in my closet. I have a slight obsession with cute clothes, and I really need to “shop my closet” more. By looking at how others pair things,… Continue Reading

Embracing NEON~What I Wore

Embracing neon fashion

For those new to my site, every once in a while, I like to share my outfits, as I like to look at the pleated poppy’s site on Wednesdays to see what outfits others are sharing. I’m trying to “shop by closet” more and I get ideas there!  To see my past fashion posts, head here. A few months ago I was not a fan of the NEON trend. I told myself I wasn’t going… Continue Reading

What I Wore in the Cold Snow

This is the day AFTER I did my hair. I haven’t actually DONE my hair in months…this consists of a blow dry (20-25 min.) then a flat iron curl to all of it (20-25 min). I actually did my hair for Better Blogging Google Hangout for the millions handful of bloggers watching online. I like my hair when it’s done like this…I should do it more often…oh yeah, it takes an hour, maybe not. I… Continue Reading

Style Files~What I Wore

fashion style

If you are new around here, sometimes on Wednesdays, I share what I wore in an attempt to challenge myself to get dressed and seek inspiration from others sharing…. I saw these striped leggings at H&M (that JUST opened in Austin–yay!) recently and had to get them. I mulled over what to wear them with, and when I asked a teen girl what she’d wear them with, she said “sweater shirt.” I have one of… Continue Reading

Style Files~What I Wore Wednesday

For those new around here, I like to occasionally share the outfits I’ve assembled and link up to What I Wore Wednesday at The Pleated Poppy. It’s a way for me to a) Be accountable for getting dressed in something other than my workout clothes (notice only 3 outfits below;) and b) try to help inspire others because I get SO much inspiration by looking at all the other gals that link up. I have… Continue Reading

fall fashion @Capturing Joy with Kristen Duke

It’s been a while since I’ve shared what I’ve worn!  I just had to take a break….but I’ve got a few new outfits to share, and I’m linking up to The Pleated Poppy, as usual. For those new, I get inspiration from others aiming to be stylish on a budget, and share what I wear. I noticed when editing pics that I found one serious and one smiley of me–which do I do best? Outfit… Continue Reading

Polka dot dress & more~WIWW

what i wear wednesday style clothes

Ok, I’ll admit…sometimes I feel a little silly doing a weekly entry of the clothing I wore. Some weeks, I’ve got just my Sunday outfit to share b/c there wasn’t much interesting about the rest of the week. The other day I was wearing my jammy bottoms and a big comfy t-shirt as I was sitting on my  neighbors driveway chatting and my other neighbor came by and asked if I was going to feature… Continue Reading

teal and purple ~WIWW


Playing along with The Pleated Poppy to share what I wore, and get ideas from what other’s wore during the week. I wore painting clothes all day today, my work out clothes all day yesterday, but I did get dressed over the weekend for a baby shower and church! I kinda feel like this first outfit was a “miss.” I didn’t love it. I used to love this skirt, but now it is so big,… Continue Reading

What I wore on my East Coast Adventure

What I Wore

It’s Wednesday, so why not grab some pics of my outfits on my trip and share ‘em?  Even though you will likely see them in the coming weeks, it’s fun to link up to The Pleated Poppy’s What I Wore Wednesday series.  The night before my trip, I posted on facebook how agonizing it is for me to plan clothing for a trip. I generally like to get a new outfit (or two) for such… Continue Reading

What I Wore Wednesday~A peek into my closet

What I Wore Wednesday

I’ve heard from so many of you that you love this What I wear Wednesday feature, so I’m bringing it back…every once in a while. Sometimes, I get the hankerin’ to coordinate with my girls when we go to church…you know…as if we are going to do a little photo shoot or something;) It’s always on my mind…I found my leopard print heels at Ross a while back, and wasn’t sure I could pull them… Continue Reading

Holiday Fashion~6 Christmas Outfits

christmas fashion1

I realized I was attending 6 Christmas events in 5 days, so I challenged myself to craft unique yet festive outfits for each one. I like to wear red or green or both for holiday parties and events, and knowing that in one extended weekend, I had several places to go and with generally the same group of people, I knew I wanted to shake it up.  I didn’t buy anything new once I had… Continue Reading

WIWW & Workshop in Houston


I think I’m going to take a break from WIWW for a little bit.  It’s summer…it’s hot…and my clothes just aren’t that exciting on the weekdays.  I mean, I don’t even get to walk into the school and show the staff how “put together” I am while wrangling 4 kids.  Plus, I have such a backlog of pictures to share, and I need my Wednesdays back! For that reason, I am combining it with a… Continue Reading
