A lot of the steps we talked about this week for Operation Clean Closet not only help organize your closet, but also end up saving a lot of time getting dressed. One of my favorite time savers- and one way to avoid the mid-morning bathroom mirror surprise where you glance at your reflection and wonder “What was I thinking?!” in your outfit choice- is to use outfit pictures.
Around the time I flip my closet each season, I also put together outfits and take pictures so that I end up with a stack of photos I keep on my dresser in my closet. I include the “meat” of my outfit- top, pants, and jacket/sweater- and also include shoes and accessories. If I am feeling extra creative, I will also throw in a handbag for a complete look.
Any morning I feel uninspired- or am simply just too tired to put something together- I take a look at my photo stash and I have an instant outfit choice.
I especially love to do this when I purchase new items. Working new items in with my current wardrobe breathes new life into my closet and reassures that the purchase I made is a good addition to my existing threads.
Now that you see how easy it can be to organize your closet in a jiffy, I challenge you to incorporate at least one of the items from the list into your closet this long holiday weekend :).
Have a great long weekend and thank you for stopping by!
