7.1.14

Sometimes my closet overwhelms me.

It’s organized by color, style, and season with shoes in boxes and pictures of each displayed neatly on the outside.  I have my accessories accessibly hanging cleanly and my sweaters folded like a department store on the shelves (for my favorite closet organizing tips visit here).

Wear of the Week: Booties + Skinny Jeans

I half-tucked a floral tunic to create shape and paired it all together with a moto jacket I picked up from Zara while on a trip to San Francisco.  It was patiently waiting in my closet since June and I was so excited to put it to use. Image

Along with a side pony, this is casual comfort at its finest!

Tomorrow I will be styling the final Wear of the Week look.  Thank you for stopping by!

I am so looking forward to scarf season!  I flipped my closet yesterday and was happy to put away my spring and summer scarves and take out the cozy winter ones.  There is something so fun about flannel fabric and gingham patterns.  I can smell the pumpkin spice already.

Scarves, in all their glory, are an item in your closet that can be hard to know what to do with.  In some of my closet quests, I have seen them stored in a bag in the corner of the closet or all hung on one hanger on top of another.  Although it keeps them off the floor, it is hard to see exactly what you have when you are digging through them all.
