Snipits of my life: Part 6 – My closet

Happy New Year everyone!!! I hope everyone’s got some major plans tonight and I’m sure you have your outfits planned out to the very last detail. Joshua, Lyndsey’s boyfriend is having a party at his home tonight and I can’t wait!

Since it’s the last day of the year I thought why not have my last post be my favorite! I’ve been waiting for a long time to post about my closet and it’s still not complete but I thought I’d share it with you all for some new year inspiration on your own closets.

I have a ton of merch and it’s kind of crazy to see how much I really own especially since I got rid of half of what I owned! Thankfully in my new place I’m lucky enough to have an entire room dedicated to my closet – with enough space for everything. It’s actually a bit disgusting when you think about it, I have way too many items LOL!


My Clothes | I like to hang my clothing in a certain order. The top rod – tanks > short sleeves > long sleeves. All organized by color in each category.
The bottom rod – shorts > skirts > pants > dresses > blazers/wraps > jackets. All organized by color in each category. It cuts the outfitting process down by 50%.

The details around the closet (ie. lamp, candles, mirror) give a special feel to the area letting it be much more comfortable and inspiring to dress in. I find it important to have all of the same hangers. Besides the organizing and flow it will also keep the spacing between each item the same and you won’t find it in one big clump!

Simple hooks on the wall can create space for anything you need. I’ve used my hooks for my scarves. I took the idea from Club Monaco – they use theirs for bags and belts.


My shoes | Much like my clothing I organize them by category and color. Starting with a simple open toe and ending with flats. Having my shoes on display makes it much easier to choose one for an outfit. Even if you don’t have a large shelf much like mine you can still display them in many different ways. If you haven’t yet, it’s a great idea to invest in some boot shapers. They keep the shape of your boots when not in wear and have them last much longer. I purchased mine from the dollar store for only $1.50.

I’ll be painting the shelf white to keep the theme I have going.

My accessories | Just like the shoes, having your accessories on display will allow you to wear all that you own. You can purchase the holders and trays on eBay or at Michaels. It will also keep them in a better condition and will not tarnish from rubbing against each other. In the first photo above you can see 2 glass vases with belts and socks. Simple and pretty ways of organizing your items will make you want to wear them even more than you already do.

My bags are organized by type of bag, if yours come with a dust bag you should use it!

Every girl should own a vanity table! It adds a touch of elegance to your space and makes for a great space to lay out all your makeup to get ready. Plus, they’re pretty!

    >I do have a couple maxi dresses – you can't really tell theyre maxi's though because I kept them with all of the dresses but tucked the bottoms into the tops (folding them in half) to keep them off the floor.
