Comment of the Week

Sam L. writes, "I stumbled across your blog years ago with the ten-item wardrobe. I bought and read Lessons from Madame Chic back then, and I continue to visit your blog now. Then, I had just left my career as an accountant to be a stay-at-home wife and mother. I was a little lost on how to manage my new life - how to manage a household, nurture a marriage, care for children, present myself as an elegant lady (the style description that most appeals to me) and set personal goals for myself that were outside the "wife" and "mother" roles. I find balance in your blog. I love the variety of posts: wardrobe, meal prep, homeschooling (we also homeschool), cleaning, remodeling, seeking out the arts, etc. It reminds me that as homemakers, we manage a variety of tasks, and that variety adds a richness to life. I particularly like the segment in this post about the prepper pantry. We, too, keep a stash of supplies on hand for any number of emergencies. Some blog posts about prepping can seem very extreme, end-of-the-world-ish. Your presentation, however, exhibits prepping as a useful, practical, homemaking skill. Thank you for sharing all of your ideas with a positive, uplifting energy. With each of your posts I watch/read, I have a new joyful outlook on being a homemaker. All of the work you put into your blog is very much appreciated. "

Dear Sam, Thank you for your encouraging comment. I am so happy that the variety of topics discussed on this blog provide inspiration for your daily life. Thank you for being a part of The Daily Connoisseur!

I hope you enjoyed today's ten-item wardrobe video. I'll see you on Thursday for the talk-through. Let us know how your fall wardrobe is coming along (spring wardrobe for our Southern Hemisphere friends).

I love your video and look forward to hearing about why you chose these items. Really like the styles too, especially the plaid skirt, scarf, sweaters, and all the shoes/boots!

Jennifer, I've been a longtime follower and reader of all of your books -- you inspire me in many ways. Just wanted to say how much I enjoy this video, it's so cool to see you explore new ways of storytelling and sharing your passions, this video style included. It's inspiring, I'm a journalist and the way you tell stories online has been life-giving and encouraging to me. :)

Wishing you the best,
Mary Grace

What a gorgeous video; you look cool and ready for fall, despite the heat. I was surprised by so many dark colours but then had to laugh because the majority of my closet is dark shades (and 93% blue if we’re being really honest). My favourite outfit is the silk blouse, black jeans, and lace up boots; it really suits you and seems like an exploration of a new style avenue for you. Think I’ll recreate it tomorrow with a similar top so thank you for the inspiration! I’m very much looking forward to hearing your comments on what you’ve chosen. That’s always the best part of your seasonal wardrobe videos as I enjoy your thought process.

Your Fall wardrobe is really beautiful! I always find this time of year tricky to dress so currently my 10 item wardrobe is a mix of summer and Fall- so more that 10 items. I’ll put all of summer away when Fall is more here to stay. I love the mindset of the 10 item wardrobe though. I’m really thinking about adding that beautiful black Skye dress. I definitely can see it looking so elegant at Christmas, even if we are only at home. I’d love to hear your thoughts on dressing up (for example, Christmas brunch) when the other guest show up very casual. This happened to me last year.

I love blue, too! Most of my clothes are blue. Lol

I haven't been on the blog in ages so I am binging a little today. Is it weird to say that I've missed you? :) This video was BEAUTIFUL. This may be one of my favorite 10 items you've ever done. I've been following since 2013 so I feel like an old pro... even with my absence the last year! (I had a baby and then suddenly she was an entire year old!)

Thanks for all your inspiring words and calm presence. I've enjoyed your books and blogs for my entire adult life so it feels quite strange to jump back in and have no idea what you've been doing for the past few months. Happy Fall!

Pneu- Thank you so much! Yes, I do enjoy darker colors... especially in the fall.

Ashley G- Thank you so much! I'm so happy you're back on the blog. Congratulations on your baby!
