So I was all happy and satisfied that in the Fall I'll have a nice, small, organized wardrobe, until I opened my closet and realized I'll have to live with a messy summer wardrobe until then.
I wasn't all happy and satisfied about this, actually.
So I decided to take some time while husband is at work and little girl sleeps to do some editing/tidying.
I decided to leave the stuff that I'll use for my Fall capsule - only, I put it in the higher bar. Here it is. And the clothes on the left are my daughter's - yes, I divide my closet with her.
This is not the complete Fall capsule: I am carrying over some pieces from my summer wardrobe.
I went through the rest of the clothes, pulled out whatever I don't want to be in my closet right now, and divided them is three piles: Winter clothes (yes, still had them in there!), Summer clothes I am not going to wear anymore for this summer, but still want to keep, and clothes to donate. A Winter cardigan is going straight to the dry-cleaner.
I put the clothes to donate in a bag. This is going to the church.
The Winter and Summer stuff I want to keep has been stored in two separate bags under our bed.
I had space left to nicely put my handbags, not to mention all the hangers I had left empty!
The result is quite ok - still a lot of stuff, but looks much better and the chance to get wrinkled is lower. Here is a picture of my "main" closet, lower bar:
And this is my dress closet, it's about half mine and half husband's:
Next projects will be:
- Edit my shoes collection
- Make some sense out of my underwear drawer.
But for today, I am done.
