Hello my Friend!
I decided it was time to do a little Spring closet cleaning. Ugh. I’ve slowly been picking up those “velvet” hangers and getting rid of all of the other ones in the house. They really do save room and your clothes don’t fall off of em. Closet cleaning is such a feat, you really have to be in the right mood to tackle it, right? It obviously meant loads of clothes to Goodwill…and the fun task of color-coding my shirts. Hmmmm…now that I’m looking at this pic, it’s kind of bugging me that the hangers aren’t the same color. What is wrong with me?
I remember when I first moved to Florida, I saw one of my friend’s closets and she had an entire section of tank tops. Coming from Chicago, I maybe had a handful, so this was crazy to me. Now I’m that person….and this doesn’t even count the 2 drawers of casual tanks. Hot & humid weather issues will do that….
I came across this thin sweatshirt that I don’t think I’ve ever worn. I’m pretty sure I bought it at one of those teeny-bopper stores like PacSun, in the sale section for around $12. Well, it was a tad too tight, so I grabbed my pinking shears and cut off the neck and arms. LOVE it now! Dirty Dancing in the house.
I was motivated from my closet haul, so I finally put together the garment rack that’s been sitting in my almost-finished “dressing room”. If you haven’t been following it, check out the progress HERE, HERE and HERE. Not much left to do–just a few things to find places for, but I’m excited to have an easy access spot to “plan” outfits on.
I had bought two awesome pieces of art to put over the garment rack, but didn’t realize it would be so tall (which is actually good for all of my long dresses). Hmmm…not sure what I’ll do with the walls on that side of the room now.
It feels amazing to de-clutter. Wonder how long I can keep the color-coordination looking good….
