I wanted to share with you today some organizing tips. I get asked questions as both a blogger and just an avid organizer of how I keep my closet neat and orderly.

I have really busy weeks working at the school or blogging meetings or photoshoots that usually begin at 4AM and end when I finally get to bed around 10PM, I don’t have a lot of time for outfit planning for the next day. I also do photoshoots most Mondays and Tuesdays and it can get overwhelming trying to plan outfits out in a full closet! About a year ago or so I started planning outfits for the whole week for social things or work, and photoshoots. I hang them separate from my closet, and I select my favorite pieces and then plan from there. This is also useful if you’re packing for a vacation! I set all my clothes out on a clothing rack in my room and it helps me stay so much more organized. I will be honest and say that my closet size can be overwhelming to me sometimes and as much as I clean it out on a regular basis, with clothing brand collaborations, it can become hard to manage. In my main closet I organize by color and length, but it helps so much to go through and have clothing items ready on a clothing rack. 

As far as style, I like to keep things really feminine and pretty so I usually go for vintage style hangers in pastel tones.

I am constantly looking for ways to keep closet space neat and organized and it’s taken me a while to find a good system that works for me. I very much dislike going through hundreds of items when I need to be out the door and I never know what to wear in an instant, so having options of outfits preplanned has saved me from making a tornado of my closet every morning.  

I hope that these tips help you with keeping your closet space neat and orderly, if you have any more questions about organizing, please let me know.

XOXO, Mykel Elizabeth
