Now that spring is officially here, I have finally removed the last vestiges of my winter from my closet, and it feels AMAZING! Of course, that means it will probably snow this weekend. Ha! (I really do hope that’s a joke.)
Admittedly, our weather is still up and down, but I’ve spent the past 6 weeks styling spring clothes, and I’m ready to start wearing them. I love the feeling of getting my closet completely switched over, so I took some time to organize it, and now I love getting dressed in the morning!
I had Alison take some pictures when she was over here last week because I always get requests to share my closet and what I kept for the season.
Bear in mind, I have more clothes than the average woman because I need a variety to work with in order to style new outfits for blog posts and try-on hauls. And of course, my closet is never static. I’m always cycling things through so that it doesn’t get too overwhelming, but as it stands now, this is what you see when you walk into my closet.
The drawers house my undergarments, socks, pajamas, and workout tops and shorts; and the bottom one is a laundry hamper.
The center shelves are full of sweaters in the fall-winter season, but for now, I have sweaters on the bottom shelf, joggers and leggings on the next one, shorts on the next, and a few sweatshirts and long sleeve tees on the top.
As we progress into summer, I’ll probably spread the shorts out onto two shelves and stick the sweaters up high with the sweatshirts because I won’t wear them as much as I do now.
That section is flanked on either side by hanging space for tops and pants, and then I have my shoes on the left wall.
I tried to arrange my shoes so that the ones I’m wearing most right now are most visible, but yet still have some color order going on. Sneakers are on the top, pumps are on the bottom, and sandals and loafers, etc. are in between.
I have my short sleeve and sleeveless tops on the bottom hanging rack, arranged light to dark. When I feel like I’m forgetting what I’ve got in the back, I switch them around and hang them dark to light. That may sound weird, but it helps.
My blue jeans are all hung on top. They’re currently arranged light to dark, but I do tend to move them around as I wear them, and the ones I don’t wear as often usually end up in the back.
I have more jeans than I need right now, as denim styles are in flux, and I’m holding onto some that I haven’t worn much lately… just in case. I feel like the ones I gravitate to will change when the weather gets warmer and I’m wearing summer tops.
For spring-summer, I moved all my non-blue jeans to the top right hanging rack. (My olive green joggers are missing — they usually go there as well. )
In the winter, I had all my pants and jeans altogether on the left, but now that I don’t need this space for boots and workout clothes, I decided to spread them out. (You can see my fall-winter closet HERE, for comparison.)
And under that, I have all my cardigans and hoodies as well as my workout jackets.
Over on the right, I have two shelves of handbags, and then I have longer hanging space below that. That’s where my jackets and dresses go.
It looks like a few things are missing down there — I think my denim jacket was in the wash. I also found a couple dresses from last year packed away in the basement, and I brought them up after we took these pictures.
So yeah, that’s about it! I have a dresser in my bedroom where I keep some of my out of season clothes, as well as items I don’t wear much — like extra pajamas and workout gear, shapewear and strapless bras, bathing suits, etc. But everything I wear in a regular basis goes in my closet. It’s so much easier to figure out what to wear when it’s all together in one place.
