Mini Closet Makeover
I’m not going to lie. These last few days there has been a definite crispness to the air. On our bike ride yesterday we noticed that leaves were starting to fall and change colors as well, and decided that if you didn’t know it was August, it was possible you’d think it was fall. The season’s are a-changin’, but honestly, I’m ready. I even swapped out all of my shorts and tanktops in my closet for flannels, plaids, and sweaters. I’m sure that in a month I’ll be singing a different tune, but for now, I say full speed ahead to fall!
Please tell me I’m not the only one with a closet that is bursting at the seams. No matter how hard I try, keeping my closet organized is incredibly difficult for me! While I have quite a large closet, and a separate storage space for shoes, I feel that the space is under-utilized and could be better optimized. Unfortunately I’m not (yet) willing to fork out major bucks for a closet makeover. This weekend I’d had enough, and decided a mini makeover was in my future. Not enough hangers, haphazard piles of clothes here and there… You get the picture. So, I spent half the day organizing my closet, purging old clothes and shoes, and upgrading my hangers.
It might sound strange, but upgrading my hangers has been on my to-do list for a long time, I’ve just never been able to commit to the investment. Previously I was using the clear plastic hangers, but always wanted to use the lightweight, flocked hangers as I thought they’d save so much space. Luckily, I live with a math genius, so he did some calculations and determined that by switching to the new hangers I would gain 33% more space in my closet. Say what?! SOLD.
It took some doing, but all of my old hangers have been swapped out. I literally bought all of the stock at my local Fred Meyer, and I’m only short two pants hangers. It definitely feels like I gained more than 33% in my closet, but I’m not complaining. Plus I’ve got a stack of clothes that will shortly be added to my Poshmark closet, so be sure to check it out!

Fall is in the air in my part of the world too. The leaves are changing and falling and I’m a bit sad to see that summer has come and gone so quick.
I’m looking to do a closet makeover this Winter, I feel like I’ve been keeping things I’ll never wear. Time to donate.
LOVE your pink flats. I just bought myself a cute new pair of clay pink Tory flats. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8c7565533ff80f6676311f35497341d99799656c0cda33c71647ab8aac2a372f.jpg
So good to hear from you, Brian!!! Hope you are well. I finally bought myself a pair of Tieks and they’re great! I really like them. I got them in black, but hope to add a few more colors to start a collection. 🙂 Love those pink Tory’s! Super stylish as always.
Congrats on the new Tieks. I’ve heard so many great things about Tieks and I love all the colors that are available but sadly I’ve never tried a pair. Living in Canada adds addition shipping charges but I might order a size 10 and a size 11 on my next trip to Arizona and have them shipped there. There’s several fun colors that have caught my eye. I do have the TB Minnie travel flats which are often compared to the Tieks for comfort and fit. Have you seen the Minnie’s. I can certainly show you mine. Thanks for you kind words about my pink Tory’s, you’re a sweetheart. I just bought another pair of the two tone Jolie’s in Tory beige/black.
What color Tieks are you looking to get next?
I have seen the Minnie’s, but never bought a pair! I am looking at the green or hot pink Tieks next. The Jolie’s look super cute!
Green Tieks would be awesome! I think anyone who likes flats either owns or secretly wants a hot pink pair of flats. I know you’d rock a hot pink pair.
I bought myself these bright pink patent Tory’s several years ago. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0623e3f4d1827a95c5c50fa43b80d78484773eb7a28f73908db59bbb396ebd9a.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8c370217e3e71f2a5e6faa756c69aa25c99a5bd6ac3e093435d34a8799ee4e61.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e5c48525bfa3300403237164ba871cd13519bbd594f286c596d6f11da1255ae0.jpg
