TranquiliT Trunk Show + Year-Round Style

Create your own style . . . let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.—Anna Wintour

In honor of Tranquil Space’s 18th birthday, THIS Saturday we’re hosting a TranquiliT trunk show at the Dupont studio (1632 17th, nw) from 10-1. Swing by for cake and homemade vegan pumpkin scones by moi, sit fireside, sip tea, and save 20% off TranquiliT.

I’ll be there with our former boutique manager/TranquiliT-lover Patricia to answer any questions, show the many ways to wear the pieces, and help you get set for the holidays. TranquiliT is great for travel (see former packing post) and transitions easily from the yoga mat to the airport to cocktail parties. It’s all about ease and layers!

For example, I used to have a summer and winter wardrobe where I would rotate heavy sweaters for sleeveless tops. Now I live in layers of TranquiliT year-round and have a small section in the back of my closet for my seasonal faux fur and faux leather jackets. No more rotating needed since nothing else is season-dependent. More below.

2in1 flare top in noir over tights. Wear as a mini dress or over leggings or skinny jeans.

Turtleneck in aubergine with pencil skirt in noir. Add tights and a blazer for the office or faux leather jacket for a night out.

ways I make one wardrobe work year-round:

  1. Add tights, boots, and an organic fleece infinity scarf to a warm weather dress
  2. Add a turtleneck under your warm weather dress
  3. Add a chunky sweater over your sleeveless dress
  4. Add tights, boots, and an organic fleece infinity scarf to a short skirt
  5. Add tights, boots, and an organic fleece infinity scarf to a pair of shorts
  6. Add a long sleeve top over your slip dress
  7. Add heavy tights with your peep toe shoes and wear them into winter
  8. Grab your beanie, arm warmers, and scarf or capelet when leaving the house for the day

More year-round wardrobe tips:

Year-round I keep arm warmers in my bag since I’m sensitive to overly air-conditioned environments. In fall and winter, I keep arm warmers and a knit beanie in my bag and am seldom without a scarf around my neck. Our fleece scarf is so cozy, and comforting—it feels like a security blanket.

Although it can be fun to update a wardrobe from time to time, I’ve found that dressing in the monochromatic layers of a capsule wardrobe makes my mornings {and travel} much easier. More layers in winter, less in summer. All black. Add pops of flair with shoes, coats, and red lips. Voilà, shifting seasons made easy via transitional eco-style! Bisous. x

Summer to Fall Style

transitional-style

Last week we had 80-degree weather in DC so I shed layers and wore open-toed clogs. Yesterday morning I walked the pups in 40 degrees and bundled in layers from head to toe. This time of the year can leave our bodies in a state of confusion.

I used to have a summer and winter wardrobe where I would rotate heavy sweaters with sleeveless tops. Now I live in layers of TranquiliT year-round and have a small section in the back of my closet for my seasonal faux fur and faux leather jackets. No more rotating needed as nothing else is season-dependent.

During our fall Tranquility du Jour Live session, I shared tips on creating your own transitional style to help lengthen the wearability of your favorite pieces.

Here are a few of the ways I make my wardrobe year-round:

  1. Add tights, boots, and an organic fleece infinity scarf to a summer dress {see above with the shift dress}
  2. Add a turtleneck under your summer dress {see above with the slip dress, ruffle dress and 2in1 maxi dress}
  3. Add a chunky sweater over your sleeveless maxi dress
  4. Add tights, boots, and an organic fleece infinity scarf to a short skirt
  5. Add tights, boots, and an organic fleece infinity scarf to a pair of shorts
  6. Add a long sleeve top over your slip dress
  7. Add heavy tights with your peep toe shoes and wear them into winter
  8. Grab your beanie, arm warmers, and scarf or capelet when leaving the house for the day

Year-round I keep arm warmers in my bag since I’m sensitive to overly air-conditioned environments. In fall and winter, I keep arm warmers and a beanie in my bag and am seldom without a scarf around my neck. The fleece scarf is so cozy, and comforting—it feels like a security blanket.

Sure it can be fun to update a wardrobe from time to time, but I’ve found that dressing in the monochromatic layers of a capsule wardrobe makes my mornings {and travel} much easier. More layers in winter, less in summer. All black. Add pops of flair with shoes, coats, and red lips. Voilà, shifting seasons made easy via transitional style! Bisous. x
