The long-awaited post is finally here! I polled my Instagram audience, and there was a resounding vote for a clean beauty post. I was a bit surprised and am excited to share both my newfound journey and the importance of choosing clean beauty and skincare products.

The biggest challenge to shopping your closet—outside of getting things organized —is having the RIGHT closet staples, including high-quality jeans, work pants, the perfect T-shirt, blouses, blazers and jackets, skirts, and dresses. Having these key items available will prevent you from scrambling the next time you’re celebrating a special occasion, attending an event, or getting ready in the morning.
In the last year or two, I have embraced having a smaller wardrobe and stuck with it while continuing to refine and downsize. There are many benefits to having a smaller closet, including getting ready quickly in the mornings and saving money. With that said, I wanted to discuss the topic of shopping your closet. I first wrote about the subject in this post, but focused on the benefits versus the “how.” The purpose of today’s post is to provide you with actionable tips you can incorporate into your routine.
I never thought I would wear a pair of sneakers outside of the gym, but now that it’s become trendy it makes sense, particularly for me and my troubled feet. If you’ve read this blog for a while, or know me in real life, you may be aware of my feet issues and how I never wear uncomfortable shoes. So when the tennis shoe became the “it” thing, I was determined to work them into my wardrobe.
Over the years, I enjoy looking back at my style choices. Personal style should evolve as trends and preferences change. But what does it mean when you think you’ve created an entirely different look, only to realize that you wore something similar almost 4 years earlier. Britney Spears’ “Oops!… I Did it Again” comes to mind, but really?!

Wow! In which year did Asa wear it better? LOL. I hope that “2019 Asa” is a bit more fashion forward than my 2015 self. I do know, however, when I was younger, I was more adventurous with my fashion choices and dare I say it, “trendy.” I would rock a jumpsuit, overalls, culottes, hats, neck scarves — you name it!
