OOTD: Winter Wonderland.

Hey guys, I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!  I was blessed to be with my little man and my family for Christmas.  After booking a last-minute flight home, I was completely caught off guard by this 10 degree weather.  We did the usual gift opening and then we had a yummy dinner to follow.  Although the weather is freezing cold, I love that I can pull out some of my winter items and layer pieces to create outfits.  For today's OOTD I added a lot of layers and kept it casual-chic.  How was your holiday?  If you don't celebrate Christmas, then I hope you spent time with family and enjoyed it as much as I did.

What I'm Rocking:
Express trench
H&M blazer
Brian Atwood gloves (from the Neiman Marcus/Target collection)
Express scarf
F21 tee
7 jeans
Aldo boots (old)
On my lips: COVERGIRL Blast Flipstick in Tease

How I Organize my Clothing and Accessories

As I've mentioned before, I am very detail-oriented and organized so I am always coming up with new ways to organize items in my condo (or life in general)!  My next project is my closet, but that's a completely different story which just might take me a decade to finish.  I've devised some space-saving and creative ways to organize my various accessories, clothes and other items.  What are some of your organizational tips?  I would love to know!

Previously, I kept my jewelry in a standing jewelry organizer but I like this method better because I can see my pieces right up front and it serves as inspiration when I'm piecing looks together.  I found a similar version here.

In the past, I've kept my shoes in their original boxes and stacked them in my closet but I was looking for a way that I could have them out on display so I can easily grab a pair by viewing my collection.  Unfortunately, I didn't purchase enough of these stacked cubby organizers so I'm running out of room already.  However, they are great for keeping my shoes out in the open and allow me to showcase the pairs that I wear most often.  Here is a similar version.

Here are some of my most worn pairs for the spring season (plenty of open toe or sandal platforms)

After a wondrous trip to IKEA, I scooped up these white boxes with metal finish to store some of my accessories.  I wanted to save some space in my closet so I bought these storage boxes for about $10 and they came in a pack of four.  As you can see, I've labeled them so I can easily find what I'm looking for.





This is an easy way for me to organize my shorts without having to hang them up in the closet, where they occupy too much space.

My clutch purses store perfectly in these boxes.
