A weekly column celebrating the neat freak in all of us.
I have nothing to wear! How many times do you think you’ve said that in your life? I’m guilty of saying it CONSTANTLY, but it’s not true. I have plenty to wear! It’s just that I always feel so uninspired by what’s in my closet AND I’m not always able to see what’s hiding in there!
I’m currently in the process of figuring out what to pack for an upcoming trip and I realized that I have a great tip for you!
TAKE PICTURES OF YOURSELF IN YOUR FAVORITE OUTFITS!
A couple years ago, I started taking pictures of my outfits in the bathroom mirror at work with my cellphone.
I started doing it to stay inspired and challenge myself to come up with different outfits. A few months later I had over 50 outfits documented! It has proven to be a really good way to help remind me what’s in my closet.
It also really helps my crazy planning brain. Look! I’ve already figured out what dresses I’m packing for my trip:
HERE’S WHAT I DO:
-Get dressed (duh)
-Take a picture of my outfit on my phone
-Save it to a designated folder on my phone
-Upload it to my flickr account (that way I can browse it from afar on a computer)
-Take photos of your hairstyles/haircuts (this can be useful when you’re going to a new stylist and you want to show them how you like your hair)
-Take pictures of your shoes & accessories
-Take pictures of clothes your trying on in the store. You can figure out if you want to go back and buy them.
-See how much your style has changed throughout the year!
-Track weight loss!
It’s kind of addictive.
