Do you ever stand in front of your closet and say, “I have nothing to wear!”? I used to do that all the time, but it was packed full of clothes. I’m so thankful to have learned how to curate a wardrobe that serves me well for any occasion, any weather and for years to come. Instead of going shopping every Saturday, I am spending my time having fun and enjoying life in clothes that are classic and easy to wear in modern combinations. My credit cards are paid off, and I’m free of clutter and clothes I hardly wear, if ever. It never takes more than fifteen minutes to get dressed for any event. Today I am conducting a little tour of the “command center.”
A cashmere sweater that I can layer over and jeans are a typical winter weather work from home look for me. The sweater is from Everlane here. The jeans are old from Chico’s (similar here). The shoes are from Söfft (similar here).
Each time I post a bathroom selfie, someone asks what is behind me on the counter. Below is a closeup. Those are Q-Tips in the tiny crystal vase.
The first thing you see when you walk into my closet is a built-in shelf used to display my handbags for daytime.
I organize my clothes by color, classification, and length. Blue jeans are the most casual, so they are at the end of the pants category, for example. The storage boxes and basket on the shelf above the pants, hold things like clothes brushes, lint rollers, and travel accessories.
Tank tops and casual jackets are followed by blouses and then sweaters. Casual tops and tees are below the casual jackets.
No flip-flops here!
Clutch bags used for evening are in a drawer. My French Kande necklace collection also has a dedicated drawer. (I am so proud to be an affiliate for French Kande. My link is here.)
Well-planned organization is the key to wearing and loving all that you own. If you can’t see it or even find it, you aren’t likely to use it very often. I enjoy blogging to share with you what I have learned and wish I had known earlier in life. I hope that my posts are helpful to you.
