Fresh Start

Shirt: Thrifted, 50 cents // Shorts: Forever 21, $20 // Hose: Walgreens, $5 // Boots: Vintage via Wildman Vintage, $15 // Scarf: Gift

Confession: I'm not a very organized person. Based on my personality, I feel like I should be organized. I desperately want to be organized. But, no matter how hard I try, I'm just not. That being said, I set my mind to getting my closet in order this past weekend. Inspired by the cool fall weather, I lugged boxes of woolly winter jackets out of storage. I packed my light floral frocks away. I filtered out as much fluff as I could. It took the better part of a Sunday and is not perfect, but it's much improved. This is the first outfit I pulled from my fresh, new closet. Bring it on, fall!

What a coincidence! I am in the middle of organizing my closet today too! I have decided that I need to do a deep clean once a month. That's doable, right? Um, right?

Good luck! (Beautiful picture today, too!)

Yay! I love the feeling of just finishing a big organizational project. Closet, desk, giant cleaning - it's the greatest! I need to buckle down and get to ironing my clothes...I have waaaaay too many backed up, half wrinkly (but clean) clothing items in my closet that I keep reaching for in the morning before realizing they're not wearable. soo sad. I love this outfit you're wearing. The blouse is beautiful and the colors of the shorts and scarf are great.

Thanks for sharing!

kudos on taking the initiative to get organized! I'm waiting on some new furniture to organize all my clothes... some are in my closet but some are also just in a big duffel bag on the floor!

That is a really adorable shirt. It's not every girl who can pull off those victorian collars and ruffles, but you sure can!

What a fabulous start to a new season! You look AMAZING. The shorts/tight/boots combo is my favorite in cooler months.

CAITLIN said...

that blouse is absolutely darling :)

i'm a total mess when it comes to organization--but when i set out to organize something it can take me all day because i obsess over it... that's probably why i don't do it very often!

I did the same thing! I moved everything that wasn't going to be worn in October...OUT. It definitely simplifies things in the morning and the clothes in the closet can breathe.

Matchless Vision said...

Great outfit! You look absolutely splendid.

Ooh! I love scarves, and your blouse is beautiful!

I just went through my own closet, too. I found I don't have as many clothes as I thought I did... Oops!! I guess I better do some shopping! :D

That sounds exactly like me. As a virgo they say your an organized person and i can tell you right now I try so hard to be organized but my life takes over and I have no time to care. But ill let you know I'm a perfectionist and I fixate on everything.

I'm actually in the middle of cleaning out my closet.
