Happy Monday, friends! Although, I could sure use another day to recover from our weekend! Lots of family, friends, sunshine, and candy…pretty much perfect. It was so nice to step away from chores and responsibilities, and fully celebrate the holiday. Except now someone needs to do laundry and hit up the grocery store. Something tells me that’ll be me.
Recently I tackled a long-overdue organizing project, and it’s been a total game-changer for me when getting dressed. When we moved, some organization systems moved with us…seamlessly fitting into their new space…like the pantry. Others required a fair amount of tweaking, like my bathroom cabinets.
And some I never had, like an organized closet, with space for all my accessories! But, I hit the closet-jackpot in this house, and we have a generous walk-in with a window! In the past, I’ve kept earrings in caddies, necklaces on hooks, and bags piled in a basket…which basically meant I couldn’t see what I had when putting together an outfit, so I just reached for the same items everyday. Out of sight, out of mind, right?
But now, thanks to a few key (inexpensive) pieces, and stuff found around the house, I’ve not only got everything corralled together and clearly visible, but also created a pretty spot in my closet!
Head over to iHeart Organizing for the full tour, and all the details, tips and tricks I used to organize my jewelry, handbags, and clutches!
Getting dressed has always been one of my favorite parts of a new day, and now I’ve upped my accessories game by being able to access everything in one spot. It’s like my own little boutique every morning! I hope you find some inspiration from it, too! How do you store and organize your accessories?
While you're out running by the grocery store, please swing by my house and fix up my accessories for me. Thank you.
On my way…have a bundt cake ready! Thank you. 🙂
What a pretty way to organize your accessories! I still have some work to do with mine. I used ice cube trays for my earrings-not very pretty so it is tucked in a drawer.
Ice cube trays are genius!!!
Such a great post with such pretty pics! If I had to photograph my closet right now, I think I might have a panic attack. I WANT A WINDOW IN MY CLOSET!!!! Whah! 😉
What a pretty set up. Mine is similar in design and I love it! I've considerd those sunglasses for over a year now… Is there a color you wear more often?
I really rotate them all pretty consistently, but if I had to choose only one, I'd say blue. xo
In the top pic, the earrings hanging off the bowl…turquoise ones and off white ones…are those Kendra Scott? Love them! I love the necklace pegboard. I have always just essentially created my own…getting the little hooks that screw into the wall and alternating heights I hang them. Cheaper option! I don't have a ton of jewelry or handbags, but sure do love the way you have organized yours!
Yes, they are these: http://bit.ly/1SqZXYG
The color is chalcedony. xoxo
I already soaked this all up over at Jen's but it's nice to revisit! Awesome organizational system!! Pretty too!
Very nice! My closet isn't big enough for this, but I am hoping to do something similar in my bathroom.
This makes my organizing and accessory-loving heart so happy! 🙂
Looks awesome! I hope to have a space to display and organize my accessories in the future because you're totally right…out of sight, out of mind. I end up wearing the same pieces everyday.
Oh my god i am obsessed with everything you did! You have quite the eye for making everything beautifully organized!
