BIG news! Over the weekend I dove in to my wardrobe re-build project – with some good old fashion organization. Since I have a rather large wardrobe – I’m taking it in sections. So far I’ve completed the Fall/Winter clothes from my dresser (Spring/Summer is all stored, to deal with later).
Here’s what I did-
Step 1: Emptied drawers and FOLDED EVERYTHING. (yah, yah, yah, I know I should always fold things but sometimes stuffing everything in haphazardly is just more fun).
Step 2: Cataloged. I made an excel spread sheet to keep track of everything – sorting by item type, season, color, condition and what I wanted to do with it – Keep, Store, Repair, Donate or Trash.
Step 3: Bagged up everything for donating, and then re-filled the drawers!
I still have a long way to go. On one hand – I did achieve my goal – I got rid of everything I don’t wear (most of it’s going to GoodWill) however, on Monday morning I still felt like I had nothing to wear. This was largely because everything I’m left with I’ve worn… recently… Which means I better figure out this style thing so I can go shopping soon!
On that note – I’ve been pinning a lot of simple, minimalistic style lately, which I’ve always enjoyed, but never feel cool enough to pull off. Maybe now’s the time?

I love minimalist fashion because it always looks effortless but never lazy. It’s doing a lot with a little, which is kind of what I’m going for here – isn’t it?
