What I Wore This Week

    I loved your newsletter this week! It is always so encouraging to see someone who is successful pause and evaluate what direction they want to go and make a change. Our past doesn’t define our future–positively or negatively. I’m looking forward to seeing what your next chapter has in store!

  2. Naomi says:

    Hey Natalie!

    Do you still use the Caldwell app? How easy is it to use? Someday I’m going to take your style class, and I’m trying to figure out how to just use what I have while trying to figure out my gaps. All of my future purchases will most likely be second hand. So it’s partly a hunt! Also, love that you are reading You are the Girl for the Job! I really enjoy Jess Connolly.

  3. Farhana Malik says:

    Let me just say I literally look forward to these “weekly outfits” posts. Every single look is an inspiration- super stylish yet comfortable (which is a must for this mom of 3 right here!!! 😄)
    And cannot wait to receive my ‘intentional bracelet’, as that’s something I’m also trying to implement in my life this year!
    Sending lots of love,

    • Natalie says:

      Thank you!! Stylish comfort is always what I’m going for so I’m happy that’s coming through. Glad you got your hands on one of the Intentional Bracelets, too!

  4. Kelsey says:

    I am really enjoying your newsletter and these blog posts of your weekly style, it reminds me when I first started following your blog years ago before IG was what it is now. I am looking forward to seeing what comes next for you and being a part of that.

  5. Kristin O’Connor says:

    I love the neutral look from Tuesday! I want to try layering my sweater blazer over a sweater, especially with the frigid temps we have in the Midwest right now!

  6. Megan says:

    Hi Natalie! Long time reader of your blog and literally had IG just for my business and following your account lol Most times I deleted it for months and then logged on just to see all your posts. Totally LOVE that your mainly posting on a blog since that’s what I go to for lifestyle and fashion information since high school. It feels like a personal magazine without all the advertisements. But also feels real to know the writer and designer and I appreciate it! Anyways any news about a Clare V trunk show again? I have my eye on a few new things! Also have you ever went to their stores? I’m interested in visiting just for the experience to see everything in one space!

    • Natalie says:

      Yes, I’m really loving reading others’ blogs again, too! It’s like going back in time in the best way.

      No current plans for another Clare V trunk show but I’m going to ask them if they’d be up for doing one with me again! I love their bags so much. And yes, I’ve been to a couple of their stores and they’re so cute!! Plus the people who work there are so helpful and nice.

  7. Laura says:

    All the outfits look great!

  8. Dani says:

    Could you also include your workout clothes for future posts?

  9. Sara M says:

    Hi Natalie! Soo happy your OOTDs haven’t stopped, just moved. I find so much inspiration in these! I am not trying to ask more of you and do really appreciate the work you do. So perhaps as you’re brainstorming new content, maybe this is a small seed for thought. One of the big benefits of IG, especially for style accounts, for me, is seeing outfits in the “wild.” As a stay at home, I find a lot of styles feel inappropriate for my day to day. I love seeing not just what people wear but how they incorporate those outfits in their day to day. Again, I’m by no means trying to ask you to change or cater to me. It’s just something I’ve been mulling over as someone who doesn’t necessarily always know how to put an outfit together that works for where I am in my day to day and sometimes seeing the example of others wearing stylish things doing similar things inspires me and empowers me to do more than leggings and sweaters everyday. As always… Love all you do!

    • Natalie says:

      Hi Sara! I get what you’re saying for sure. Not sure if this helps, but these are the outfits I’m wearing everyday while working at home, playing with my kids, grocery shopping, going to the post office, etc. I wear these outfits usually from breakfast time until dinnertime (and then I switch into lounge wear!).
