While waiting on my new countertop installation, I have started pulling together some of the smaller decor items. As I’ve mentioned before, I really want to keep a retro vibe for the kitchen and keep it original to the design of the home. I am keeping the birch cupboards as is, and just refinishing the wood since the finish is starting to wear off.
Every time the season changes, I feel like I end up staring at my closet thinking that I have nothing to wear. Over the years, I’ve gotten smarter about my wardrobe and shopping smart to get great deals on clothes, so now I can be a little more purposeful in shopping for each new season.
After following my closet organization guide steps. I identified a few new things that I needed, as well as reminding myself of a few things I didn’t need. I thought it would be fun to share my closet updates to see what you all think!
Fall is just around the corner and now is the time to start pulling out those beloved sweaters and pretty coats. Or maybe time to start planning your fall wardrobe refresh! Here are some of my favorite fall looks that make the transition from summer dress to fall chic:
Closets are often one of the most cluttered parts of the home because it’s so easy to close the door forget about it. But, having a tidy and organized closet can help save you time and money in the long run by making the most out of your space and wardrobe. Follow these 5 steps for a total refresh of your closet organization:
For my second month of Rent the Runway, I wanted to refresh my summer wardrobe with pretty dresses and skirts for work. I felt more prepared this order, because I was able to shop all month and “like” items that I was interested in renting instead of being in a panic trying to sort through everything to get my order.
I again found it frustrating that there isn’t a lot of availability of a lot of the items. Of my likes, about half were available in my size. I’m always looking for 1-2 skirts and 2-3 dresses in a variety of formal and fun looks, so it’s actually pretty difficult when the ones you really wanted aren’t available and you have to try to find backups. As I said in my first month review, I’m also really only interested in renting designer items that are worth the money– if I want to wear a $40 free people dress, I’ll just go buy it!
A few months ago, I saw someone post about using the monthly subscription service from Rent the Runway and was curious about it. I really love designer clothes and fun fashion, but lately I’ve found myself buying fashion pieces, wearing them once or twice, then selling on Poshmark.
The monthly subscription from Rent the Runway lets you pick out 4 items and you get to keep them for a month, then you send back and get to pick 4 more. The first month was $70, but it is $89 a month after. My thought was that for what I would normally spend on things that I wear a few times, I could rent for the same price, so I wanted to give it a try.
