How to organise your closet

For some, the thought of organising your closet is right up there with root canal dental work … for others, its an enjoyable afternoon at the end of which you feel a smug sense of satisfaction knowing that everything you have in your wardrobe works perfectly for your life.

Whichever category you fall into the above photos are taken from my recent wardrobe/bracelet reorganise to give you some inspiration. 

I find it helpful to arrange both by colour – this means that depending on what mood I'm in, I can instantly pick out what I feel like wearing and grab accessories to match.  This works for me because I have about half an hour maximum to get ready in the morning and out the door to work!

I like to play with colour which means pairing teal with neon pink or navy with peach.  I also like to wear complimentary colours with my rings/bracelets.

What colour combinations do you like?  What are your tips for organising your closet?

Enjoy!
