It's that time of year! Here are 4 steps to Spring Clean your closet!
(Clothes AND accessories)
Do you have items in your closet that you are holding on to for one reason or another? Get rid of it!!
*You most likely won't lose 25 pounds in the next couple of months.
*You won't magically take the itch out of that one sweater.
I have a beautiful, green JCrew sweater in the back of my closet. I have never worn it. It's beautiful and it fits, but it itches like crazy. I keep holding on to it because it's from JCrew and it's SO pretty.
*You will definitely never wear that bridesmaids dress again.
Take these things to the consignment store, give them to a charity, sell them on eBay, or sell them at your next yard sale!
The first two things can be done simultaneously. Is there something in your closet that you love, but can't figure out how to wear it? Or need help restyling it?
*Go to Pinterest. So serious about this.
I have a really creepy white blazer in my closet. Creepy as in I styled it so, so wrong yearssss ago. I recently fell on this pin, and thought, "ta daaaa", all my dreams have come true. I now know how to style my white blazer again.
*Look at blogs.
I featured 15 ladies on Wednesday...all who have cute blogs with cute outfits...Seriously go check them out here!
*Think of a new way to wear your own clothes.
I love what Jessica did with this pair of pants. She took a cropped (and flared) pair of pants and transformed them into the most adorable pair of pants ever. Such great thinking!!
(And if you can't figure out a way to wear or transform your clothes, refer to #1)
Find a way that works best for you. Make sure to decide on a way that can actually stick with. (You can see how I organize my closet here.)
I like to hang all my clothes in categories. Short sleeved shirts together, dresses together, etc. My brain thinks in "pieces". But I know some people who like to organize their clothes by color. Choose what works for you!
Also, make sure to have "mini" organizing days. An afternoon where you straighten up after throwing everything on the floor...or a morning where you refold your t-shirts. Something that doesn't feel overwhelming, but that will help you keep up.
I think it's great to freshen up your closet every season with a new piece. I've said it before, and I'll say it again...I want a pair of mint skinnies in my closet...(like, now!) Think of all the ways I could style those things!!

Happy Friday! I hope you have a great weekend!
