our new digs // my closet

seven years.
my clothes spent seven years in a closet the size of a matchbox. a matchbox that i split 75/25 with my dear husband.

but those days are over.

because now, i have a closet that’s about 25% larger and i don’t have to share it. in fact, matt’s closet is the same size and he doesn’t have to compete with skirts or ruffles. lucky him.

but seriously, let’s get back to my closet. it has mirrored doors, did i mention that?

here is the left half…
tops, organized by color. and shoes.

and here is the right half…
the green to blue tops, then dresses, then skirts, then pants.Β and yes, more shoes. these need to be weeded through. it’s something i just couldn’t do before the move.

a colorful little bunting adds the right funkiness to my accessory area, don’tcha think?

it’s made from fabric scraps and simple sewn together at the top. no hems, no bindings, just raw edges and push pins to hang them up.

a peg board holds earrings, necklaces, bracelets and belts.

two ribbons, attached to the wall at top and bottom, hold my hair clips and fabric flowers.

over the last few years, i have made so much of my own jewelry. but my tastes are changing and i have decided to toss or reuse some of the items i am not wearing anymore. only a select few made the cut and got to remain on the board.

this peg board has been magical. seriously. i need to see my stuff, or it will never get worn. i can easily select the right accessories and they have a permanent home. plus, it’s pretty, and that’s half the battle. πŸ™‚

rings, stud earrings and chunkier bracelets live on my dresser. this is a clear plastic organizer that i bought at target. i think it’s meant for a drawer but it’s perfect for this.

do you struggle with a small space? how do you organize your closet? by sleeve length or by color? i’d love to know!

  1. OMG, your closet is has even more room for MAGIC!! I am so excited for you, all that space just for YOU!! Looks great and lots of pretty things in there.

    That bunting is the sweetest, great idea for your little jewelry area, so pretty!! Good job on it too!!

    I used to have mirror closet doors growing up, my sisters would come in my room so we could all do our hair in the big mirrors. Those were fun times!!

    Enjoy your new MUCH DESERVED SPACE!!
