Inside My Closet

I finally got around to tackling the daunting task of organizing my closet which I've been meaning to do for quite some time now.  My sweaters were haphazardly strewn onto shelves, my jeans were in complete disarray and I was finding items that I had forgotten about because they managed to get jammed in the back of my closet.  I know that keeping my closet neat and organized will always be a work in progress, but I wanted to share some organization tips that help me make the most of my space.  Now if I can only get my husband to let me have his half of the closet!

 View from entrance:
My oversized knits are now neatly folded and organized by color
Denim is folded and organized by style - bootcut, skinny and boyfriend
Dresses, longer skirts and pants are hung directly below

 Shoes are now neatly organized with my favorites front and center

Blouses are organized by color and style
 Using slim hangers has tripled my closet space!

Bags & Accessories:
Top shelf - large bags
Middle shelf - smaller bags & clutches
Lower shelf - jewelry, lint brush (I have 3 cats!) and scissors to easily cut tags or loose threads
Adhesive hooks hold my delicate necklaces & bracelets

Adhesive hooks on the sides of my shelves hold belts, hats, long dresses & various accessories

Ankle boots and various other shoes are also on shelves
Sweaters and knits are hung above blazers

A hook on the inside of my closet door holds pieces I'm planning to wear

  29. I love this!! I can't wait until we buy our own house because my honey promised me I get a whole room to turn into my closet! LOL. I really like how you put your shoes. Very classy and organized. And the adhesive hooks for your necklaces are genius. I really need to get some shelving when I get my "closet". Thanks for this! I love taking peeks into people's closets. <3

  42. It's so much easier getting dressed in the morning when you can see everything. I want to live in your closet and then wear all of your clothes and carry all your bags. Is that weird? haha. Yes, I know that it's weird. You don't have to answer that. And if you've already called the police, I totally understand.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Love this post, Audrey! I always enjoy seeing the inside of closets -- especially from darling fashionistas such as yourself! ;) We have similar closets! I have the same shelving!

  46. Just curious if you're renting space in your closet, as I'd like to live in it. No joke - dream closet. I just moved, and my closet got a little more bigger, but I'm still dreaming of the day when I can display my shoes just like you did!
