Episode Summary

In today's episode, I'm interviewing the delightful Dominique Davis, who writes the fashion and lifestyle blog, All That Is She. Dominique has one of the most charming Instagram accounts I've ever seen, and so it's not a surprise that she's amassed a huge following in a relatively short space of time. For the most part, Dominique's photos feature her life with her partner and two adorable daughters (Amelia and Penny), and she writes entertainingly about motherhood and her experiences creating seasonal capsule wardrobes to hone her fashion choices and simplify her busy life.

Since this episode was recorded, Dominique has written a brilliant guide to building a capsule wardrobe. If you've been following my blog, you'll know I've been inspired to pare down my closet (ever since talking to Dominique!) and donated or gave away about 20 bags of clothes! I'm now working towards having my own capsule wardrobe, and I definitely recommend using Dominique's guide to help. Part of her guide is free to download, but I would suggest forking out £1.97 for the other part too - it's worth it! 

Dominique gave some great tips on how to set about creating a capsule wardrobe in this episode, as well as advice on how to stand out on Instagram. Her account was recently featured as a winner of a hashtag competition on Instagram's feed, so she certainly knows what she's talking about! More than anything though, I think it's clear from this interview what a friendly, down-to-earth person Dominique is, and I know her followers appreciate her lovely spirit within the Instagram community just as much as her spell-binding photos.
