Fruits of the toil


This post is either very interesting to you or VERY uninteresting.  Either way, I will be back to normal outfit posts tomorrow!  A couple of girls (Jenn and Sarabellum) said they were interested in seeing my Newly organized closet that I was so thrilled about yesterday, and since I guess its good for insurance purposes to photograph your stuff, I thought I would go ahead and show and tell.  Its not like the most Glorious thing in the entire world so I hope you are not disappointed!

To start, Yes, I mostly have the whole closet to myself.  My husband, by his own will, moved his stuff out into some furniture we have in our room, and in exchange for the real estate, I wash and fold and put away his laundry occasionally.  Not a bad deal.  Anyway, the first pic shows the view from the outside and I basically ordered the pictures so that if you start on the right and work your way around you will eventually get back to the door.  Heavy long coats first, lightweight jackets and blazers next, (a few of my husbands button shirts are not shown) then boots under the jackets. My accessory wall is in the back on top of a set of drawers that hold scarves, gloves, knit hats, wigs masks and other fun stuff, then on the north wall I have my skirts and pants on the lower level with heels and sandals below, blouses are ordered with the darks near the back and lights (next photo) in the front for spring.  This order changes in cooler months.  Then finally hanging behind the door are my dresses and below them are more sandals. My purses hang on the skirt rod.  My belts are mostly hung from nails next to the door by the coats and right now my hats are awaiting a home, sitting on my drawers out in the room.  The drawers carry all my undies, sleep and workout wear, and random things that don't deserve to hang in the closet (tees, sweats, tights, yoga wear, snow gear, etc. These items are not even folded)

Ya, pretty boring right, but its Sunday so, you know,  Enjoy the rest of the weekend and good luck to those of you who are spring cleaning as well!

COMMENT OF THE DAY:  I think every blogger should do this too!  I would love to see some closets!! Thanks lady!

Your closet is fantastic. I love all your boots and bags...this is quite the closet. Your blog is so inspiring! I almost want to go reorganize my things...

J. said...

WOWZA. Clearly not my closet, which easily fits into the tiny wardrobe I have here @ UCLA. This is glorious!

This mildly reminds me of a picture I saw of Olivia Wilde's closet -- not that I think you dress like her. Just how it's arranged and how it's so pretty.

Ahs said...

I'm not sure why, but file me as finding this very interesting. What a magnificent closet. And so clean!

Tiny Quirks said...

This is like looking into someone's purse, but even better! I drool at the sheer organizational meets chicness that is your closet-- I love the first picture!

Lucy Marmalade said...

VERY interesting!! Your hat collection makes me green with envy.

anythingreen said...

i'm so impressed! this must've taken forever. i hope, for your sake, that it's easy to maintain. i'm really good at organizing things, but i totally suck at keeping things organized....

The Daily Fashionista said...

Well you've inspired me to get off my butt! I think Zach and your husband we're discussing the closet situation too, since I kicked Zach's stuff out to the coat closet (hehehe)
A girl has to have some space, right?

BikeWorkPlay said...

Oh, wow, NOT a boring post at all!!

I am in love with your collection of clothes, shoes, jackets, accessories! well, everything!

Thanks so much for sharing :) Its so nicely organised too!

Ms. B @ Millie Deel said...

Ooh I LOVE closet posts!! I guess I have a bit of voyeur in me, wow that sounded kinda creepy! :/

Anywho, you have so many lovely things in your closet! I could only hope for that kind of organization and I'm jealous of the amount of room you have!!

myedit said...

I feel like a snooper just checking your closet pictures for all the good thrifted treasure you have there... I do think I need to come play in your closet and in exchange, you should come frolic in my studio (?)/ now half-closet as well... I'm dreaming clearly...

B a la Moda said...

WOW!! What a closet. I also left my husband with a little space for his clothes. :)) I have seen some shoes that I love. Can we buy? ;)

Francine said...

Awesome! Now all I need is your home address and the times of day you're not home so that I can steal EVERYTHING IN THERE.

Leah said...

That was quite a closet... how long did you finish the spring cleaning? I also have the entire walk-in closet to myself. I moved the hubby's stuff in the guest room closet. Hahaha! He was quite worried that the next item I'll move to the guest room is him. :-)

Have a great day! xoxo

Chloe said...

Your closet looks terrific! Such a pleasant sight to my eye :) I love your shoes, and the small dresser in there with your jewelry!

GlamaRuth said...

Yowza! You've inspired me to finally do this as well - still have stuff sitting out in the spare room from switching from warm to cold weather wardrobes in October! Though I do envy your mini-walk-in.

Alexandra Hoover said...

Girl from the North Country said...

I love post like these! Your boot collection boots all over boot collections to shame! Super organized!
