How to wear a button-up

The beauty of button-up's is their versatility.  Sadly, most women do not optimize all of their options!  Button-up's are a bit of a hidden gem in my opinion.  If they're cared for properly, they are timeless. 

I discovered this lovely example of button-up options on My Closet in Sketches.  I envy this artist...seriously, if I attempted to sketch something similar it would resemble a train wreck.

A simple "go-to" guide for necklace pairing

One of the dilemmas my clients most frequently ask about is accessorizing.  Completely understandable!  It can be a headache to deal with figuring out what will pair well with your outfit, especially when you're in a time crunch.  I created this guide for a client, and she raved about it so much that I thought I would share it.  I hope it can help some other ladies save some time! :)

Color coding your closet...DO IT!

You know how they say every person has their own form of crazy...well neurotic closet organizing is mine.  I guess this is part of the reason I have made a career out of it ha.  If there is one thing I cannot stress enough about organizing your closet it is this...


(My neurotically organized closet)

Is it tedious? Yes.
Is it a time consuming project? Yes.
BUT once you do it, it is easy to maintain.

I can attest that color coding your closet will absolutely make your life easier!  No more searching for that certain top you want to wear.  All you have to do is go to the color section your top is a part of, and BAM it's there! Trust me, it will change your life.

Tip for shoe organizing

Here's a helpful tip for storing and organizing flip-flops, sandals, and flats!  All you need:

The great thing about chalk paint is how quickly it dries...especially for those like me who are impatient.  A project like this takes less time than one would think.  If you want to achieve a distressed/vintage look, this is the process I recommend...
  1. Apply one coat of chalk paint and let sit for 20-30 minutes
  2. Apply a thick 2nd coat (chalk paint tends to dry much faster after 1st coat has been applied)
  3. Let rest (depends on the environment you are painting in, usually I let mine rest for at least 30 minutes.
  4. After it is dry, take sandpaper and lightly distress random parts of the edges of the letter holders.

That's it!  You now have a great shoe organizer that is aesthetically pleasing.

Shoe storage innovation

I just love the ideas you can come upon while browsing the internet!  My newest find (which I am implementing in my closet organizing ASAP)...

That's right, using crown moulding to organize & display your heels!

You can find crown moulding for a reasonable price here Crown Moulding Home Depot.  You can also purchase everything you need to make chalk paint there as well. (See my previous post How to make chalk paint). Shoe's on display...yes please!
