I'm Olivia from Fox and Mint. I'm a personal style blogger from Melbourne, Australia although, I post all sorts of things - not just the things I'm wearing. I'm taking over Corina's blog and bringing you something a little different! I first came across Corina's blog when I was aimlessly looking through Fashiolista. Corina's picks on that site are so minimalistic, clean cut and amazing I wanted to know more about her and pretty much liked her Facebook page, blog and Pinterest. She's such a creative soul!
Anyway, back to taking over!
Recently, I was getting really frustrated with my wardrobe and clothing situation, so I decided to give it a make over. I've compiled 5 simple steps to help you get your wardrobe sorted. I know it's hard and it might not happen in one go, or in one day! Clothes are really personal and sometimes hold special memories, for me anyway! But, it must be done and trust me, it's a great feeling once you do it!
BUY BIG BAGS
Buy any household garbage bags that can hold quite a bit. The last thing you need is for the bag to fall apart on your way to the second hand store.
This is an integral part to reorganizing. Ensure you have a solid style to your wardrobe, and stick to it. What i found helpful was creating a mood board for my wardrobe. Just a bunch of images that i want my personal style to encapsulate. I used my Pinterest boards as inspiration and get sorting through clothes.
ONE AT A TIME
Work with one style of clothes at a time. That means, start sorting through jumpers in one hit, then when you're happy, move onto your dresses and so on.
Okay, let's face it - you will always struggle parting with some items in your wardrobe, regardless of how determined you are. Let me introduce you to your new best friend, it's called piles. Piles are really great because, piles usually have many other friends like, yes, no and maybe. Try also meeting Ebay and "i'll keep it for a year and see".
Once you have your clothes in yes, no, maybe piles and any other piles you created, it's time to wipe the shelves out and throw away your ugly coat hangers. It is important to refold clothes and organize your clothes in a way that is easy for you to take them out.
I buy scented dryer sheets and put them under each stack of t-shirts, shorts and pants to keep things smelling nice. You can use a bar of soap too!
I hope you enjoy the post!
"Olivia is one of my very favorite stylists. Her personal style is simple, and chic and the same time feminine and edgy! We had a chance to bond even more when she won my Logotype Giveaway, and i got to redesign her logo.
There is no way you won't find an interesting outfit that is approachable and just fabulous over at her blog in Fox and Mind" - Corina
Keep up with Olivia
