How to Achieve No-Fuss Wardrobe Neatness

Deciding on what to wear can be a tricky decision just on its own, but when the outfit that you are looking for is nowhere in sight, an overhaul of how your outfits are kept is most probably due.

You might have a two-part cupboard, mirror doors or a sliding-apart wardrobe like mine, whichever it is storing outfits and footwear can quickly become a nightmare.

Things can easily be turned around though, and to make this much easier for you, I am showing the inside of my very own wardrobe - And how I maintain its neat condition.


Here are all of my dresses, t-shirts and vest tops. I like to arrange them based on their style, for example, if they have a thin strap I put these together, the same goes for long sleeves etc. I don't focus on the colours because, as you can see, I own a collection of vibrant patterns.

My empty hangers are in a row together on the far right, which is also where I may have confused you by keeping a couple of jumpers, a dress, skirt and top next to each other. These are actually what I plan to wear over the next few days, plus they are complete with what jewellery I will team with them too. I really suggest doing this, it makes life that little bit less stressful when you are in a rush to go out.


Next up is the adjoining side of my rail, which consists of jumpers, cardigans and more t-shirts - They aren't with the others because these particular ones are from concerts that I have attended in the past.

Shorts and skirts are the additional connecting fashion pieces, as are some of my necklaces.
Another top tip! Use a hanger to display these on to avoid any of those troublesome knots that are always a pain to untangle. You can also jazz things up a bit with some colourful hangers. I present a couple of my favourite dresses on posh bow padded designs.


I know that it probably appears like I must have splurged a huge amount of money on my fashion items, but everything near on was bought from Primark or snapped up cheap at boot fairs over the years.

My approach to what I wear is varied. I wouldn't say that I follow trends.
If it catches my eye for all of the right reasons, I'll buy it - oh, though it should be at a bargain price too.

Funnily enough I do actually have more tops and bottoms, but these are folded away tidily in my chest of drawers, whilst footwear stays on a shelf at the bottom of my wardrobe.
If you have too many shoes and not enough room, plimsolls, flip-flops and similar kinds can be flipped over and stacked on top of each other without seeming messy.

Goodbye 2016 and Hello to a New Year

We have now entered the first month of 2017!

 

After all of that celebrating, January sees most of us having made our New Year’s resolution, which we then try the darn best that we can in sticking to for say, a couple of weeks or so (longer if we really are determined).

 

 

I didn’t want to set myself too big of a target, one that I had little chance of achieving. So, even though it may sound simple, mine is to have less of a negative attitude in everyday life. Even though most of the time it might be something that I’ve done or didn’t do that I'm critical about, I have begun to realise that acting this way effects the very few people around me. Thinking and speaking like this doesn’t help on my part either, especially mentally, and these are all reasons for why I would like to work on this.

Although I feel a deep amount of sadness inside when the festive celebrations are all over and the Christmas decorations have to be taken down, being able to start afresh for the twelve upcoming months sounds pretty good too. Plus, if your household is like ours and has enough chocolates and biscuits in presents to last you over the next few weeks, there probably isn’t much room left to complain at the moment, right?

Now, zooming back to the big day in December when Mr Claus had a very restful night a few hours before, are some photos that I snapped, including all of those prezzies (because you're never too old for those!) gratefully received by me.

Gifts:
DVDs: Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (Possibly the longest film title ever?!) | Sabrina the Teenage Witch - The Sixth Season | Last Vegas | The Kids Are Alright | Penelope | We're the Millers | Wizards of Waverly Place - The Movie.
 Books: The Crown 5-books selection series by Kiera Cass | Sabrina the Teenage Witch | Mary-Kate and Ashley - Two of a Kind | The Christmasaurus by Tom Fletcher | Taylor Swift - This is Our Song.
Mixed:  Pie Face game | Over the Rainbow charity CD | Avon Sleeptherapy Restful Night lip balm | x2 Pairs of character ankle socks | Charm bracelet | Tribal print vest top | Checkered skirt | Hootie Owl warmer | Pinot Grigio wine | Sheep hot water bottle teddy | 'Love is' hanging decoration | Hair bows, floral band and pack of brown tie's | Playboy perfume deodorant | Box of Cadbury's Heroes | Typo glitter pencil case, 'easy writer' pen, 2017 daily buffalo planner and mini 'T' letter light.
 
The Pie Face game was bought by my dad as a present for the three of us. I am pretty sure that he was inspired by The Jonathan Ross Shows Christmas 2016 episode (YouTube it if you haven't seen this). We are yet to play it, however the squirty cream is sitting in the fridge. 
He also got me the Taylor Swift book as he knows that I am a big fan of the Swiftie. The sheep water bottle was also from him. I get so cold in the winter. Plus, I can cuddle this one!
 
Everything else was kindly given by either my mum, close friends or work.
After Christmas up until New Year's Day included countryside strolls, warm puddings, lots of TV - especially films, and two days off work for me! (My job hours are during weekends btw).

What was the highlight(s) of your festive break?
