closet makeover

there’s something about fall weather that makes me want to clean. i mean, seriously. i had a random impulse sunday evening to empty out my closet and re-organize. well, that, and i had to make room for fall clothes. because, let’s be honest, who doesn’t love to shop for fall clothes? 
anyway, my closet was in pretty rough shape. not the worst, but it definitely needed some work. so, hanger by hanger, i emptied my clothes and picked through what i no longer wear (which is actually going to be on “sale” on the blog here in a couple days!). once my room looked like an absolute disaster, i figured it was time to fill my closet once again. i even put my tops in color order…which probably won’t last very long.

the great new is that it still looks pretty good after just 3 days. i can’t promise how it will look after 3 weeks, though.

    I put my clothes in color order a few years ago and I've never looked back. I love it! It's so much easier to find things!!

    My closet is color coordinated too. It's actually been easier to keep organized and easier to find what I'm looking for. I did it a couple of years ago & it was definitely one of the best decisions I've made. Looks great though!

    Color organization is such a must! I don't know what I did without it. Now, as I'm getting ready, I just envision the outfit I want and *BAM* there it is. Love your little corkboard in the closet!

    I have had the urge to do the same thinh….Except mine involves paint, lighting, and a total restructuring of how my empty closet is put together. THEN, evrything can go back.

    My whole closet is color coded and then organized by item. All tanks together, all long sleeves together, all jeans together, etc. It really makes it so much easier to find things ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh jealous of the size of your closet! I started organizing by color when I had a walk-in closet in my college apartment (somehow I've downgraded since then) and have been doing it ever since. I'm not a super organized person, but somehow that's stuck.
