What I've Been Up To...

So, I haven't posted that many outfits lately due to crummy weather and the loathing of winter. So, I thought I would share what I worked on the other day. Motivation struck and here's the result!

I should have taken before pictures so you could have seen how bad it was before. But, in terms of my dresser... it was really cluttered (not that I cured that habit) but it feels much more organized. I had an old dusty jewelry box that really didn't help when I was looking for earrings or rings. So, I put them all on these vintage plates and dishes and I think it looks really nice! Plus, I have my new print which I got here and I love how it looks. It is printed on an old map and what a great quote! She is super nice and has great customer service so I totally recommend getting one for yourself!





Then, I worked on my closet. I took all of my heavy scarves, sweaters and hoodies and put them in bins. I moved my "wintery" items to the left so the more springy things were front and center. Also, my thicker cardigans are off to the far left more out of reach while the lighter ones are right up front! I think this will really help me when I am getting dressed! Plus, I still have a couple of weeks worth of warm dressing ahead so I didn't want to take them completely out. MN weather is so fickle! My skirts and dresses moved to a more prominent position as you can see with the more wintery ones off to the left. Plus, I tried to put them in order of "fanciness" to help me. Now my t-shirts can be in 2 piles instead of one too. Patterned t-shirts in one stack and plain in the other. You can see that I also sort by color because, I'm me and I need to. I'm not super creative in the morning so when I have brown pants or something I want to know where all my specific shirts are that will go. Lazy is more like it!


Ahhh much better! Come on spring, I'm ready for you!


  1. I've been trying to figure out how to sort my jewelry in an eye-pleasing manner. Why I haven't purchased vintage plates and put them there is beyond me. What a great idea!

  2. your jewelry display looks amazing!

  3. Glad I could provide some inspiration! Most of these plates/bowls were like 1 buck or 2 at the thrift store. Super easy! Show me pictures if you end up doing it!

  4. Thanks! I don't quite have your flair for vintage but I tried :)

  5. Lovely! I'm honored to have my print included in such a pretty set-up! :)
