Weekly Rundown

the Weekly Rundown: a Smart, Online Course, Spring Fever + Outfit Repeating

January 7, 2018

Seasons and salt blog

STYLE:

You might remember my friend Dacy, of Mindful Closet, from when I was featured in her Creative Motherhood series last summer. Dacy is someone I really respect because she has nailed down her personal style to a tee, and makes it seem easy and effortless. This winter she is sharing her wisdom and ways in a new, online course: Making Space. She is teaching her students how to define their personal style and create a minimalist wardrobe. The four week course is $147, but it goes up to $197 on January 9th. Please let me know if you sign up, I’d love to hear more!

When super chic bloggers make outfit-repeating cool.

Love this look, I may have to try re-creating it soon.

LIFE:

This photo is giving me spring fever the same exact way a sunny day in mid-February, on my college campus did.

As you look out at the new year, and are mindful of new goals, one big reason could be holding you back. Excellent food for thought as you set out to conquer your dreams in 2018. I’ll definitely be referencing this one again.

HOME:

Continuing in the vein of Thursday’s popular post about reducing household waste – one very easy switch around the house. I have gone back and forth on this one, but she makes a convincing argument for ditching liquid soap.

    I shamelessly outfit repeat when I find an outfit I love. At least 6 days out of the last 2 weeks I’ve worn my ES raw silk harper tunic with a wool cardigan and black skinnies. It’s just so warm and cozy, and that’s all I really care about this time of year!

      That sounds like such a gorgeous combo Beth! I could see why you’d want to repeat that one.

    Yes bar soap! I get why people prefer liquid handsoap for bathrooms but body wash makes no sense to me at all – bar soap is so much cheaper and better for the environment (packaging but also the transportation emissions!). Just make sure it’s in a dish that lets the bar dry out so nobody has to pick up slimy soap and you’re good to go! I think it lasts longer too (tbh I’ve gotten enough nice bars from random gifts and hotel stays that I haven’t had to buy soap in years).

    This became SUPER obvious to me when I moved out to a place where I don’t need to drive and do my shopping on foot: liquids are heavy and come heavily packaged so they’re costly to transport (for you but also for the climate) so I’ve learned to be reeeally choosy about liquids in general.

      So smart Madeline, I hadn’t thought of it that way! Bar soap for the win!

    Thanks for sharing, Andrea! You’ll have to let me know how the switch goes.

      We have been on bar soap for awhile, but then stopped because the kids kept destroying it in the bath. >< Wish me luck on trying to teach them to leave it alone!

    Fell down a rabbit hole after clicking through to that Litterless post! So much good stuff for a new not-zero-but-still-trying-waster. I’m pro soap. It’s less wasteful, lasts longer, and is an easy way to support small businesses and craft-makers! Make the switch!

      Thank you, Katie!

    Thanks so much for the love, Andrea! So grateful to get to be inspired by you and your blog. I loved your post on sustainable household tips – my husband and I recently made our families beeswax wraps for Christmas but paper towels are definitely our biggest vice. Thanks for reminding me of that necessary change!

      Jen, you are such an inspiration and encouragement. As for paper towels, you’ve got this! You will probably surprise yourself at how well you can adapt. :)
