What’s in my closet: COLOR

Sep 26, 2013 | My Creative Practice, Wear Your Joyβ„’

Organized my closet today in sections: jackets, long sleeve, short sleeve, no sleeves, skirts, dresses. The process made me wildly happy and now I'm ready for @lynzeelynx to come style me in outfits.
I love getting a glimpse into people’s purses, closets, desk drawers, and more. I dunno. I just think it says a lot about a person. In the spirit of glimpses and peeks, I thought I’d share a photo of what’s in my closet. 
Recently, I organized it in sections: jackets, long sleeve, short sleeve, tanks, skirts, tunics, dresses. I loved this process, and from what you told me over on Facebook, I should take it a step further and organize it by color, too. I might just take you up on the suggestion. I also learned over on Facebook that not everyone else has a closet full of color! You guys have a lot of neutrals, mainly black, and not a  lot of color. 

So, friends, for those of you who are craving more color in your life, consider this your permission slip to purchase NON-black clothes. I dare you. Like, for reals. 

Looking forward to boot season too. Considering adding another pair of #oldgringos to the collection. This is a little nook in our #attic master bedroom by the way! Today has been about #nesting with the house and family.
And while you’re at it, buy yourself a pair of red shoes. It will change your life. Promise. 

Sending much love,

    What a fun post! I tend to organize my closet by item and then by color because I love to look at the color spectrum…this means I tend to buy solid color tops, tanks and cardis, but I make most of my skirts which are always colorfully patterned and I hang these on the multi-hanger so they can hang vertically to save space =-)
    I have to agree with you that red shoes can change your life!! I highly recommend buying red shoes or boots or sneakers πŸ˜‰

    Loved this post as I recently decided that part of my recovery from severe depression needed to be adding more gorgeous color to my life – including my wardrobe.
    Now my blacks and browns are supplemented with purples, greens, blues and magenta and I'm totally enjoying it!

    At 52 I just bought a floral shirt from Seaplane.com, and I love it. It makes me laugh and gives me some style. I used to say I'd never wear pink or florals. Ha Ha!

    I love colour also, before I had kids it was black black & black. As I have got a little older I have really started to wear what I love…..colour. i think colour comes with inner confidence as well. I wish my wardrobe could be that organised though!!

    I have four double closets. One with reds, oranges, fuchsias, pinks and purples. One with browns,grays and blacks. One with whites, light blues, turquoise, and deep blues and lime green. The last has my dresses organized in colors. From black, navy blue plum to red. I only buy those colors in dresses. It makes it so much easier to find things. Oh yeah they are organized from short sleeve to long sleeve. I keep the coordinating shoes and purses in each closet also. Makes it oh so easy to dress, pack, and put away. I have a separate boot closet. I have lots and lots of boots. I have been treating myself to at least two good pairs of boots a year since I was in high school. They never go out of style.

    Awesome colors! I need more color – I default too much during the week to business neutrals. And I've tried red shoes but so far they all make me feel like a size 9.5 clown! = )
