Closet Tour

Several of you have asked to see my closet and storage systems again. Since I am stuck here in the "Siberian" part of Tennessee where it is barely above minus one, I thought it would be a good day to give you a tour.

This video shows the master suite closet which is located just beyond my bathroom.

I keep most of my shoes on racks in the finished room over the garage. I found both these shoe racks at Bed Bath & Beyond.

In the future, I plan to turn this room into an actual closet designed to fit my needs. For now it is used to store shoes and some extra items for the home that I am not using to decorate with at the moment. 

There is always room for more shoes! My mother and all of the women who work with me in my company also wear my shoe size. They love getting the ones that don't work out for me.

I hope this blog post gives you some tips for organizing your own closet and storage systems.

Hopefully, the frigid weather will leave us soon and we can return to date nights and fun filled weekends.

Thank you for joining me on this wonderful journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!

Wear It Wednesday, Handbags

"Why do you change your handbag so often?"

Some form of this question is asked so often so I thought I would discuss handbags today on Wear It Wednesday.

My handbag is part of my outfit and not limited to utilitarian service. 

For evening or dressier events I always slip only the items I will need into a small clutch that complements what I am wearing.

Most of my bags are arranged in this built in shelf in my closet.

 Any bag that comes with a dust cover is stored inside it.

This red bag from Tahari via T.J.Maxx is one of my favorites but I never carry it if there is a chance of rain because it will spot. Taking care of my bags ensures that they will last for a long time. I keep most of them for years. 

Always store your bags stuffed with tissue paper so that they don't loose their shape. Keep all that tissue they wrap your clothes in when you shop to stuff your bags.

I don't carry a lot of things around with me. I keep small items such as dental floss, a small pair of scissors, a nail file, lip gloss, an ink pen and small note pad in a makeup bag. Business cards, lotion, keys, a small mirror, eyeglasses, my phone and a clutch style wallet are normally what you find in my bag.

This makes it easy to slip only what I need including the lip gloss color that complements what I am wearing into a smaller bag for the evening or switch to a different one for the day.

Thank you for joining me on this fun journey through midlife and beyond.
