taking inventory [part uno]

My lovely and very well organized friend Kim, had me "take inventory" for her last year. She's obviously a genius. Brilliant! I basically took the pieces that Kim was having a hard time making an outfit out of and put together a couple of outfits using her wardrobe. It was so fun, because you are basically shopping in your closet. Sometimes you can't keep making outfits with clothes you've had for years and so it's helpful to have a new/different outlook on your own clothes. With my sense of style being different and having never looked at all her clothes like that it was easy to mix and match in new ways! We took pictures and she had at least, I think, like 20 new outfits that I'd made for her. This was like the funnest thing in the world to me, I loved it.

So this year when I was cleaning out my closet, organizing, and sorting through stuff, I decided to take inventory for me :) Guys, you have to try it. It will amaze you how many new combos you can make. Plus, it makes it so much easier to get ready in the morning when you already have a couple of outfit ideas in the back of your head (or saved on your phone!). 

So here is my favorite organizing update that I did.

Attack of the shoes!! $20 at Target for the racks! Look how many those puppies can hold. Now I can see all of my shoes, it's way more organized, and I will get more wear out of them :) win win win! One might say, "Winning!"

Pictures of my "inventory" to follow!!
