This week, oh this week! The first two days of the week are always rough at my extremely interesting job where I open mail all day and read angry letters. I hope you hear the sarcasm in that sentence, but yes – I’m worn out. I wanted so badly to take outfit photos today and I even went to the trouble of making sure to pick out my outfit last night, which I never do. But by the time I got off work today the weather was starting to look gloomy and I wasn’t feeling very sunny either! Ah, well! I’ve had plenty to cheer me up today though, but first let’s look at a few random Instagram photos!
Over the weekend I finally organized my closet and attempted a very simple form of nail art, but it was nail art nonetheless! I’m not going to lie – I was almost equally proud of both accomplishments! I have been wanting to organize my closet for a very long time. After getting everything in order I’m so annoyed with myself for not getting it done months ago. I’ve put together several outfits that I would have never pieced together without the new setup. It is literally like walking into my own boutique now. Here’s a before photo (don’t judge me).
I had it “organized” by category here – tops, dresses, skirts. Or I did, before it exploded. This was not functional for me at all. I’m a very color oriented person and in the past I have always had my clothes in order by color, but when we bought this house and I actually had space I decided to spread everything out. Not only did this make it harder for me to put together outfits, it was also a HUGE waste of space. Now, all of my clothes are arranged by color to the left when I walk in and all of my accessories are in front of me – tights, scarves, necklaces, bags, belts, headbands, shoes, etc! There’s not a single bit of shelf space left for shoes, so I may need to sell a few pair before I buy any more. ;] Oh and I can’t tell you how amazing it is to be able to see all of my jewelry. I will do an in depth tour of my closet soon, maybe a vlog?
On to some cheery news! I won a pretty awesome ad-space giveaway from Meanz over at Koi-Story. She partnered up with two other gals- Amanda of Dragonflight Dreams and Emily of Painted Eyes to collectively give away ad-space on their blogs. This couldn’t have come at a better time for my blog and I’m just elated to have won! I never win anything. Ha!
I’ll be back tomorrow with more happy news! That’s the kind of news everyone likes to hear, right? =)
