“I almost resent the whole fashion thing. Good God- never wearing the same thing twice and all of those things. It’s a pain in the ass.”
Jennifer Aniston

Ha! I had to laugh when I read this quote from Jennifer Aniston. There are many days when I want to walk out of the house in my workout shorts and flip flops, and there are some days that I DO walk out of the house in workout shorts and flip flops (and sunglasses and a big hat). Looking put together every day is not nearly effortless. It takes planning, organization and creativity. There are some days when other activities of the day must take priority.

However, if you are willing to set aside a few hours to go through your closet and reconfigure how your clothes are organized, I guarantee you will breathe new life into your wardrobe. You will also make it easier to put outfits together each day, getting you to work even earlier (Yaaay…)  Take a baby step: hang all of your pants next to each other in the closet; then hang your skirts side-by-side; are you getting the picture? Once you have organized things in this way, you can take a blouse off the rack and hold it over your pants and skirts until you get a match that you like.

Too easy? Ok, smarty. Take out a skirt, a pair of pants and a top that you like together. Try to make a week’s worth of outfits with those three pieces. You can use any accessories and shoes that you like to change things up each day. How did you do? Give me some comments about your experience!

The weather is getting warmer, and this is a great time to pack away those heavy winter clothes and bring out the lighter wear. This process also provides an excellent opportunity to get rid of clothes you no longer wear. You haven’t seen the warmer items in months, so you are less likely to feel extremely tied to them. Use this moment to go through each item before you put it back in the drawer or closet. Usually you can tell by just looking at it. If you don’t feel some kind of happy emotion when you look at a certain piece, put it in a pile for consignment or donation.
