Cleaning out the Closet

I don’t know if you are like me, but I am obsessed with keeping all of my clothes.  I have tried to clean it before but I end up leaving most of the clothes even if I rarely or never wear them anymore.  So as a part of my New Year’s resolution I cleaned my closet.  Here are just some of my tips for have a clean closet.

  1. First I took all of the clothes out of my closet 
  2. After I started to sort through the clothes.  Look at the item and think back to last last time you wore it.  If you can’t remember or it was over a year ago, place it in the giveaway pile.  If it was recent keep it.  P.S. look to see if the clothes that you are going to giveaway aren’t sellable because who doesn’t want to make a few bucks here and there.
  3. After I finished sorting through the clothes I started to put them back.  I didn’t just put them in the closet as I used to have it.  I organized it.  I first sort the tops that were going to be on hangers from tank tops, to t-shirts, 3/4 sleeves, long sleeves,vest, and jacket.  I did not include sweatshirts.  
  4. After I did bottoms and decided that skirts were going to be on a regular hanger to save space and shorts and pants were going to be put in drawers.  I placed to skirts on each hanger and placed them behind the jackets.  
  5. I then folded all of my jeans and placed them in drawer.  After I did the same thing with my shorts.  
  6. I hung all of my dresses and placed them behind my skirts.
  7. I sorted my pajamas and placed them in a cabinet.
  8. After I reorganized my shoe collection to maximize space.
  9. Lastly giveaway/sell your old clothes. :)

I’ve been obsessed with leather textures in everything lately, and as soon as the jogger-hype wagon hit, I immediately jumped on.   As ridiculous as they can be, and unsure whether I’d look back and laugh at myself for living out this trend, I still needed leather joggers.  I settled on a much cheaper material (and price), and in the ever-so controversial harem style, in case this infatuation doesn’t last long in my closet.  And sure enough, they already have subtle signs of overuse.
Overuse is key though.  They’ve been my go-to sweat pants, making everyday errands a little more fabulous and ridiculous at the same time.  And they make the best GNO dancing pants, ever.   So lesson learned, sometimes you have to embrace a fad, own it, and laugh at yourself later.

Most Worn Shoes

I don’t know about you but I definitely have a couple pairs of shoes that are just my go to.  They are shoes that I always wear.  Some people think that I am weird because I have a ton of shoes.  A lot of people say if you have so many pairs of shoes why do you only wear these 2 pairs of shoes most of the time.  And what I say to that is that it is easier and these two pairs of shoes are so easy to style and I know that I can put them on when I am in a rush.  I am always running late to school so I end up not having a lot of time to get ready because I don’t get up on time so just have 2 pairs of shoes that I know that I can pair with anything is great.  Here are my 2 most worn pairs of shoes.  Yes this might change later on but I will update it if it does.

Steve Madden Troopa Boots

Converse High Tops
