{recap} Wardrobe Update - July - PLUS a Tour of my Closet

  Tuesday, July 31, 2018 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,, 
I bought two things this month, but sadly you won't be seeing them until after my wedding. Yep. I found my wedding dress (and shoes!) It's not a traditional dress because I'm not doing the traditional wedding thing, but it's super pretty! I got it during Net-a-Porter's sale with an extra 20% off (same with the shoes) and used advertising money on it. BOOM.

But, instead of a blank post this week I decided to show off the closet in my house since you all haven't seen it yet! We've been in our house a little over 2 months and pretty much have it all furnished - except our finished basement. I'll slowly be sharing little pieces on the blog (like my collection wall in the living room.)

It's closet time!! I painted the walls purple after we moved in because it's my favorite color and I wanted the room to be extra fun.  Eventually I want to get a whole custom IKEA closet system in here, but for now I'm sticking with pieces I already had from previous closets. You can see my closet when I rented a house with my friend; she let me use the third small room in the house as a closet. When I lived with 2 of my cousins my closet was actually my bedroom/closet because I took the smallest room in the house.

Welcome to the closet room
This dresser is actually a baby changing table if you fold out the top. But now it is a double layer shelf for my accessories and some beauty products
The shoe and sweater corner
Hello, clothes!
Handy dandy Target clothing racks!
This is actually a bookshelf. But it's perfect for shoes!
Shoe shelving from Target!
My lovely IKEA shelves! Super heavy but I love them.
Some family heirlooms
Nail polish collection
Some of my bags
My beloved Chanel bag and fun LV bucket bag!
My daily rings, which have been put on hold since the engagement and for the heat of Summer. But they'll be back on my hands eventually! Just maybe not all at once like I used to wear them.
Sweaters galore! (Should be interesting when I get my bulky winter ones out of storage)
A closet within my closet. This used to be steps up to the attic but now it's a perfect tiered shelving unit for extra shoes and my shoe boxes (I only keep the expensive boxes.) The attic is now accessible through the ceiling
This is the closet in the guest room, I commandeered it for my blazers
