A Closet Full of Nothing to Wear

Fall Wardrobe Organization

Let’s be honest. We all have those mornings where hitting the snooze button on the alarm clock five times in a row is so much easier than trying to get out of bed on time. If you are anything like me, you probably spend way too much time calculating the last precise second of precious sleep you can enjoy before you need to wake up…or risk being extremely late for work!

This week was just one of those weeks for me. I felt exhausted from the minute I woke up each morning, and even extreme amounts of Starbucks and espresso were not enough to do the trick. On top of that, despite many shopping trips and closets and dressers brimming to the brink of explosion, I found myself wrestling every day with the same old nagging dilemma. What am I going to wear? We all have those moments, right? In my defense, this question seems harder to answer now that the mornings are chilly, but by 10 am the fall sweater I thought was a good idea seems completely unnecessary. This is the reason why summer is my favorite season – a light, colorful dress and you are good to go!

Since I seem to be struggling lately with my wardrobe, I have decided to use this weekend to take inventory of items in my closet that I no longer wear, don’t want to wear, will work for fall, or won’t use again until next summer. Needless to say, I think some organization is in order. Hopefully this well-intentioned (and much needed!) project won’t send me running to The Loft or H&M in need of new fall essentials!

Wish me luck!

  1. I love organizing my closet! I just finished (in September) a year of no-new-clothes shopping, so it really forced me to learn my wardrobe inside and out. Another trick I learned was to tie a rubber band around all your hangers and once you wear it, cut it off! The ones that still have rubber bands after a year (or 6 months, really) should be sold/donated/tossed!
