I'm back home in Florida for the time being. Yay? It's the best and worst thing all at once. On one hand, it's so nice because I can take a mini-break. The first night back and I slept for thirteen (!!!) hours straight. Talk about exhaustion. After weeks of staying up really late working on school stuff, I finally have a tiny break. But on the other hand, I'm back home. I feel like I took a giant step back. (And frankly, I feel completely out of the loop.) Florida feels like a completely different world.
One of the stresses of moving back home is having to move back in.
It's definitely the best motivation to try to get back out of the house ASAP. As much as I love my family, I hate not having a schedule and I hate not having my own space. After living in a single dorm room for the past nine months, I got used to having a space entirely for myself. Yes, my room is much larger than that tiny dorm room (actually my closet is even bigger than the dorm room), but it's very much not my own room anymore.
This in-between feeling is making me lust after apartments and, mostly, closets!!!
There are tons of great "dream closets" on Pinterest, but I can't find any that haven't been sourced with some sort of spam link. Errrrrr. (Why do people ruin things like that???) I have found a few great images of closets AND some great links of how to organize and create your own dream closet! Swooning!!!
This makes me want have a single color closet. How easy would that be to get dressed in the morning? Oh and I just think the closet is beautiful.
This sliding shoe organizer is so brilliant. Martha Stewart is too clever! One thing is certain... I have too many shoes! I try to donate pairs of shoes that I don't wear anymore, but I find that more and more shoes end up coming in than out. Hmmm. Funny how that happens!
I love this one as well. I like how clean and open it is. And everything that you need for one outfit is within reach!
This custom closet is bright and cheery. As much as I'd love to have space between my hangers, it never ends up happening!
This is my closet at home from a few years ago... it definitely does not look like this now!!! Trust me. It's a disaster. Literally, I'm not sure why it's causing me so much anxiety, but it is. I'm using this to remind me of happier (read: more organized) days.
Martha Stewart offers a ton of great articles about organizing closets.
