April Catch-up

I dove into Instagram this month and realized I've been terrible about putting my photos up here as well. So here's a quick April overview, and if you want to see my photos in a more timely manner, follow me on Instagram @honeyandhuckleberries!

Snails, snuggles, princess ninja's, and camas lilies, that about sums up my month! I have a few specific posts to make still, but April has been dreamy.

Mel Deanna with bonus Owl!

I have to start today with a photo I didn't take myself. We went hiking at Mel Deanna on Friday and found a great horned owl nest. Craig is geared up to take photos of birds with his little powershot, whereas I stick to flowers and children. Anyway, this is one of his shots. It was very cool to watch this guy fly in and stare at us from his nest!

I took the rest of these. Flowers, children, my feet, dead leaves, the usual.

Spring 30 for 30: Part 1

I'm halfway through my capsule wardrobe experiment! I've taken photos of every outfit except for the one day where I worked from home all day in yoga pants. I'm not actually taking photos everyday, I do them in batches. But I'm posting on instagram daily. It's actually not a bad thing as it makes me plan out my outfits a few days in advance which saves brainpower :)

Taking full body self portraits is a bit humbling and I have to say that there are a couple items of clothing that I'll probably throw out after seeing what they really look like on me. Photos are much more unforgiving then the mirror!

Also, I've learned that cardigans are pretty flattering on me, so I think I'll be on the lookout for a few more. Overall it's been a great way to see what suits me best.

If you want to follow along for the rest of the challenge, you can find me on Instagram @honeyandhuckleberries and the hashtag for the challenge is #spring30for30

A Walk at the Wildlife Centre

We had a little visit to the wildlife centre last time we visited my parents. Lots of cousin fun :) I love this place, even when it's still brown in early spring.

My Spring 30 for 30 Capsule Wardrobe

Hey guys, here are the clothes I've picked for the 30 for 30 challenge. You may note that there are only 26 items. I don't actually like the rest of my clothes, so I'm leaving some room for shopping or sewing. Or shorts if the weather gets warm! 

To be fair, I don't actually love some of the items I have here, so I guess it will be a good way to see what I should weed out.

Tanks. Bring on the spring weather!

T-shirts. I need some colour here, people.

3/4 sleeves. I weeded out all of my long sleeved tees. We'll see if I miss them.

The shirt I liked enough to buy twice (from two different consignment stores) And the drapy shirt I never wear because I'm just not all that classy.
Cardigans and the favourite shirt that is nearly worn out (don't leave me!)

Comfy skirt and a couple dresses. I want more colourful dresses!

Dress pant style leggings (Dreggings? no, that's not right), leggings, jeans. Yes my pants have a sweat pant waistband sewn in. That way my pants stay up. And it's comfy. Don't judge.

And that's my wardrobe. 50% were bought from consignment stores, which is how I like to roll. Eco-friendly + cheap.

Honestly, I feel a little ridiculous sharing it with you. I'm not glamorous or even particularly stylish, but these are my clothes.

There's still time to join in, we start on Friday, April 1st! Instagram hashtag #spring30for30!

 And no, you don't have to photograph all your clothes ahead of time, only crazy people do that.
