Outfit Post: 2/5/12

I’ve been thinking about this color combination ever since I saw Rachel over at Darling Autodidact’s post using teal and red. I wore this to go to my artist’s co-op and an IKEA date with Braden, so I wanted to be comfy and darling. So sweater tights and boots it is!

So here’s the detail on this shirt that I promised you guys the last time I wore this tunic. I love, love, love this little button. I don’t know why it delights me so much, but it really does.

I also got a few things to do something I have been meaning to do for a while: I got a second hanging closet organizer from IKEA and then immediately fixed my closet up.

Check it guys: color organized. The top left corner is normal sweaters and flannels, bottom right is argyle sweaters. Everything else is by color, except the one multi-color box on the second right. Yes, this is just my collection of tops. Two things are really clear to me from this: one – I have ooooodles of blue, and actually considerably less purple than I had thought.

Guys, I have an organized closet. I hope I can keep it like that for a long time. Of course, my skirts and pants are all still scrambled up in a drawer and not organized at all. One small victory for the day though!

I didn’t actually sort through my stuff while I was putting things away, just went by color. I do need to weed it down a little bit, primarily from the blue section if I can. Have you guys ever had the impulse to clean your entire closet out? Did you ever follow through?

  1. Hooray teal and red! Love your take on it– and the neckline on that shirt is excellent. Organizing by colors using those hanging closet organizers is a great idea for those of us who, uh, don’t have the patience to make things fit in drawers.

    I am so fascinated with this combination– and my closet is so replete with these colors at present– that I could go for a week wearing just these colors. Perhaps it’s a challenge!

    • That’d be great! I wonder if anyone would notice that your color palatte had become more limited. 😀 (the whole drawers thing is the exact reason all my shirts are in the hanging organizers. XD)
