Hey Friends! Let's get down to business.As some of you may know, I have a little side gig called closet editing. It's basically where I come over to your house ad help you clean out your closet. Some of you are like "Wow, that sounds horrible. Why would I let you into my closet?" I'll tell you why! THE best way to make clothing decisions is to have an unbiased second opinion. Enter: me!During the closet edit, we make piles, I have you try things on, I ask prodding questions... all in the name of LOVE. As in I want you to love your closet.Because so many people prefer to fly solo on this task, I'm here with a few tips on how to have a successful and efficient closet clean out sesh, just in time for Spring and Summer clothes to make their grand appearance. Speaking of Spring and Summer... can we talk about these elastic waistband crop pants? They are perfection paired with this cami blouse. Also, this laser cut detail tote has quickly become my go-to bag for Spring. Oh, did I mention the inside of the bag is blush? You're welcome.Ok here we go!
Step One: The Piles
Go thru all your hanging clothes and make a pile of anything faded, picked over, missing buttons, or just down right nasty. This will be your donate pile. Some of the things might also need to be in the trash pile. You be the judge. If it's not in good condition anymore, you don't need to put it on your bod.Now pull out anything you haven't worn in the past few months. We all know the items that stare us in the face and beg to be worn. Chances are, if you haven't worn it up until now, you're not gonna wear it again. These kinds of items can go in the SELL pile. This includes things that don't fit well. They might fit someone else! I use the app Poshmark to sell all my clothes when I'm done with them. It's very simple and you can make a whole lot more than online garage sales or consignment stores.
Step Two: The Styles
Ok now that we've got our donate/trash and sell piles, what should be left is your KEEP pile. Here's the part where if I were doing the closet edit, I would go through and help you put together outfits with what you already have. But if you don't have me, you still have Pinterest. Bless it. You can put together outfits by doing a search for items you own! For instance, let's say you want to know how to style a white button down. Just do a quick search for that on Pinterest and you should come up with a bunch of ideas. I like taking pictures after I've put together a look so I can remember it later. #mombrainI also recommend going thru tee shirts, underwear, socks, workout clothes, and shoes. The same rules apply to these things. Make your piles and stick to your guns.I hope this helps and as always if you've got any questions, please feel free to let me know!Thanks for reading!My outfit details are linked below![showshopthepost
