My wardrobe today after months of culling

So tomorrow I go back to work after three weeks of holidays *sigh*.  At least now though dressing may be somewhat easier as I can see clearly what's inside my wardrobe (this makes me somewhat more happy about having to get up everyday).


All my jackets, blouses and tops (not including the casual cotton ones) are arranged on the top hanging rail.  The bottom rail is devoted to my skirts, both work and casual.  I even had room to move my short coats from the hallway closet onto the bottom rail.  I hope that by doing this I will not get into the habit of wearing the same coat or jacket day in and day out - I really think that sometimes outwear makes or breaks a great outfit.


The long hanging rails are devoted to my dresses and trousers (pictured above and below).  I have separated my casual dresses from my work dresses with my work pants and trousers.  My work dresses include those that are a little more "out there" and that are only suitable to be worn to the office on Fridays.

Also I am happy to report that a couple of pairs of pants which were getting too tight - now fit again!  My next big feat will be to do up my Isabel Marant cropped pants (which I never got to wear before I woke up one day a size bigger - damn weight, it really does creep up on you) and my beloved Nudie High Kais in blue rinse denim which I miss wearing.  No cheese for me until then.


In case you have not been reading my blog since the beginning - this is what my wardrobe looked like at the beginning of the whole process:


It was a disorganised mess - no wonder I had "nothing to wear".

The most important thing that this process has helped me to do, is to figure out the gaps in my wardrobe and to identify those things that I clearly love/loved that need replacing and upgrading.  More on that in the coming weeks as I plan my wish lists and US shopping list.

    1. To what?
      I got rid of my wooden hangers because they take too much space and snag delicate tops.

    1. I don't love everything in there, but I had to leave some clothes or I would be walking around naked!

  4. You have done such a great job! I am just reading through your blog archives now looking at the progess :) I am in a bit of a 'argh I hate everything in my closet' mood lately and need to take steps to do something to remedy it. I can't wait to look in my wardrobe and ONLY have pieces that I like/feel comfortable in there.

    1. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I now have a whole different outlook about shopping. I'm really looking forward to buying some basics and staples when I am in the US.
