Clever & Quickness

I'm a total slob when it comes to my wardrobe. I live in a little space. I share my closet with my boyfriend (who might have more clothes than I do). I grew up sharing small rooms with my sisters and generally never developing the habit of organization. This has never really bothered me as I still manage to get dressed daily. This Winter, however, I've been feeling absolutely no inspiration in getting dressed. I've been living in band t-shirts and the same skirts over and over. In an attempt to get over the Winter and find love within my wardrobe, I decided to actually put my closet and dresser together. I spent the fall cleaning out my wardrobe, so what I have is relatively small. I spent a couple days tossing more clothes, folding, washing, and hanging everything I owned. It felt very good and I'm able to open my closet and see that hey, I actually do have a decent wardrobe. I know this is all pretty basic, but I swear sometimes it's hard to remember. My style and personal tastes are always evolving. Aligning that with my personal habits, budget, and the weather can make loving clothes a little hard sometimes. Now if I can only keep up with using the closet.

Oh, and it's still Winter and I'm still unhappy.

  2. Eff winter. At this point, I am totally over it. But you always manage to look cute on your blog! I'm sure that you do in real life also. I love the pink and black. If I wasn't organized, I would go crazy with my closet!

  3. This dress is amazing on you! I've been feeling pretty apathetic about clothing this winter lately too. Or you know, life in general. Winter really does that to a person.

    1. That's pretty much winter in a nutshell.

  4. I always get so jazzed about my closet after clearing it out. I just generally feel more inspired when I'm in a place that's clean or looks different than it did a week ago. (I move things around my small space a lot. Even if it's just replacing a picture on a wall.)

    After all your cleaning, you totally pulled together an awesome look. Way to go you!

  6. I know...winter needs to end soon. I'm getting tired of layers now. I return the same ones again and again! Maybe it's time I organize my closet too...
    Aha, well hey, those boots are awesome, and I love the vibrant pink dress you're wearing.

  7. Sometimes a closet clean-out/rediscovery can be invigorating.

  9. I think you always look adorable, but I also have these phases where I am just totally uninspired and want to stay in my PJs all day long...
