Costumes and Closets

Happy Halloween Everyone! 
I didn't have an opportunity to dress up this year but I  thought I'd show you some of my past costumes!

 Jacqueline Kennedy

 Joan Jett

Dolly Parton

For me, Halloween signifies that it's time to move out the summer clothes and move in the winter clothes. As much as it pains me to do this it has to be done! As many of you know, I don't just have a closet, I have a closet room! Our whole 2nd bedroom is my closet! Yes, I'm a lucky girl! Well, I spend the past 2 days reorganizing and switching from summer to winter and I thought I'd share with you the end result! 

Here is the main closet that my brother built for me:
see the remodel here , and here

I previously had organized all my tops by sleeve length but I decided to go for a different approach. I did most of the tops by style- Dressy, Boho, Professional, Girly, Stripes, Plaids, Collared shirts, cotton tops etc. I keep out most of my tops because even tanks are good for layering in colder weather. I only put away the really summery ones I know I won't wear in winter.

Here is the first of my 2 wardrobes:
I took out all the summer dresses and dressy dresses and hung them in the big closet in out basement so I have access to them but they are out of the way.

Here is my other wardrobe:
 I love jackets- can you tell!

 I also got all my boots out

 and I hung my necklaces on a bulletin board so I can see them better!

I also got rid of two bags full of stuff! It was a lot of work but I feel so organized now!  I love it!
Hope you all are safe an dry today! Praying for those who lost so much this week.

Today I'm linking up with:
