Feel like you never have anything to wear? Us too! That’s why this spring, we were on a mission to declutter our closets and add a few key pieces that would elevate our style and simplify our daily routines. Enter  Gilda Miranda, a legendary Boston stylist and a mom herself, who understands the challenge of transforming a dysfunctional wardrobe into one that’s effortless to manage.

For everyone who missed our recent Sip + Shop event, here’s a recap of the brilliant styling session we enjoyed. First, we extend a heartfelt thank you to  Gilda Miranda from Styled by Gilda, whose expert advice was the main event, and to  Flock Boutique for their wonderful hospitality.

A Style Guide for Moms

Gilda introduced her “Style Guide for Moms,” stressing the importance of aligning your wardrobe with your actual lifestyle. She advised that if athleisure is your go-to, your wardrobe should reflect this by not only embracing these comfortable pieces but also incorporating slightly more elevated items to add interest and dimension to your looks. This approach allows for easy mixing and matching, enabling each outfit to look effortlessly polished.

Furthermore, Gilda emphasized the psychological benefits of a clutter-free and well-organized wardrobe. By minimizing the number of choices you have to make each day, you can enjoy a more streamlined routine that leaves you feeling confident and calm as you step out the door. She recommends building a seasonal capsule wardrobe with a limited number of items (she recommends about 25-30) that can be paired together in different ways to create many easy looks.

Building a Capsule Wardrobe

During the event, Gilda masterfully curated a capsule collection from Flock’s spring offerings, demonstrating a perfect balance of 50% casual pieces with 50% more elevated items for the Boston Urban Mom. This collection is designed for versatility, allowing each item to be mixed and matched to suit various occasions, from casual days-around-town to meetings to date nights.

Each item is available for purchase NOW at Flock.
