We went and visited my family this last week and we had such a nice visit! Bug loves her grandparents and her aunts/cousins and it was so nice to spend time with family.

I have had this blazer for quite a while and it is, hands down, one of my favorite pieces ever. Unfortunately, it is starting to pill and so I am on the hunt for a replacement. What makes it so great is that it is a stretchy jersey fabric so it is just as comfortable as wearing a hoodie. I mean. How great is that?! Does anyone know of a great, stretchy black blazer that won’t break the bank?? Help a girl out and let me know in the comments below!

I wanted to talk to you about why you should decorate your closet when doing a capsule wardrobe.

I don’t mean chandeliers and built in stereo systems (although if you that’s your thing then awesome! Can I come nap in your closet?). What I do mean is making the space where you hang your clothing aesthetically pleasing.

Why is that important? Because most of us start our day in front of our closet.


Would you rather start your day staring at a cluttered mess or would you rather start your day selecting a cherished item from a closet that is neat and pretty to look at?

And, yes, that is a rhetorical question because I don’t know very many people that would opt for the first option (again, if that’s your thing then awesome! I just won’t be asking to take a nap in your closet any time soon).

I haven’t always subscribed to the “pretty” closet idea, but now that I have beautified my space I find getting dressed in the mornings so much more relaxing.

I like to utilize matching hangers, pretty storage containers and hooks to hang things on, framed pictures, and scented air fresheners. All of these things make me feel excited and relaxed every time I open my closet.

I know it seems like such a small step, but when you have a neat, orderly, and pretty closet your mindset towards your closet will change.

You’ll find that your focus shifts from what’s NOT in your closet to what IS in your closetΒ and that will naturally create so much more contentment with what you already own.

I have some of my favorite items for decorating my closet listed in myΒ post on How to Build a Capsule Wardrobe. What about you? Do you have any favorite ways of making your closet more “approachable?” Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time,

    I LOVED my closet in my last apartment – it had so much space and was walk-in! I had it organized and everything had a place and (this is where my OCD really comes in) but a different style/color hanger. It was glorious. My current space is temporary so my closet is just a WRECK!

    I find when I make that extra effort to beautify any room of my home, it’s always worth the effort as I enjoy it so much more. My master bedroom is currently my favorite place in my home, but closet could use a little help. Thanks for the motivation to get started on that! πŸ™‚

    Cute outfit! I want to do an entire makeover on my closet…capsule, decorating, etc but the thought of it all just makes me want to shudder! Will you come do it for me!? πŸ˜‰

    It definitely is easier on the eyes and much more relaxing to have a pretty or at least neat closet! It takes a small amount of time to do a small part of the closet everyday, which creates a less stressed me!

    love that outfit, it’s very chic, easy and just cool mama vibe. Plus I love anything red and the shoes make the outfit.
