Weekday Wardrobe Hack
If you are like me, you want to be able to snooze as long as you can in the mornings during the work week. Anything that I can do on the weekend to save me time in the mornings, I am all for it. Like a true fashionista, one of my biggest issues in the morning is picking out what I am going to wear to work. If I am not on top of this, it can actually be a huge time waster = less time to keep pressing snooze.
A huge part of the problem is that I have SOOO many clothes, so even if I have an idea in my head what I want to wear the next morning, finding particular clothing items can be challenging- especially when I am pressed for time. Now especially that K and I share a closet, even though he gets like 10% of the space, it just adds to my closet issues and I realized I needed to do something to stay organized.
The other day, when K and I were at IKEA getting a few things for our house, I happened to come across a clothing rack. I decided to invest in one to solve my weekday wardrobe issues. Over the weekend, I went in my closet and pulled pieces that I wanted to wear during the week and hung them on the rack. I kept them all in the same colour scheme (grey, black, white, and pink – my favourite colour palette right now and so nice for the summer to fall transition). When I wake up in the morning I have 10 pieces of clothing to mix and match to create my outfit for the day. Trust me it is A LOT easier than tackling a whole closet full of clothing to find something to wear. It’s worked really well for me this week, and I think I will continue to do it.
Clothing racks can also be particularly helpful if you want to pull looks for a season or pick out your favourite items to wear for the month. Sometimes there are pieces in my closet I forget I own because they aren’t always visible to me in my closet. I can see myself using it to hang some of my current favourites as a reminder to incorporate into my outfits when getting ready for the day. The easier it is to see items, the more likely you are to wear it!
