dream closet + must haves



Hey everyone!

I'm guessing if you guys read my blog you have some sort of interest in personal style, and, thus, clothes. Have you guys ever pictured your dream closet? I know I have. For the next four years I will be in university and have minimal closet space, which kind of sucks. However, today I will be describing my dream closet, even if it won't be a reality for the next few years.

I think one of the most important aspects of a closet is how accesible your clothes are. What I mean by this is you should be able to see and reach all of your clothes! When I can't see all of the stuff I have I forget they even exist. That's why I would love a walk-in closet with shelves for all of my shoes (the same way shoes are displayed in stores) and different clothes racks to hang different sorts of clothing articles. I would also like to have a specific rack for the items I am wearing the most for the particular time/season. Finally, I would like my closet to be white (so the clothes are the center of attention) and have a huge window so I can take advantage of the natural lighting when looking at myself in the mirror.


Now that I mentioned that I would like to have a specific clothes rack for the items I'm wearing the most, here are some of my "must have" items for the summer:



Skirt from Pull & Bear
Shorts from Zara
Jeans from Gap
Shoes from Olivia
Heels from Urban Outfitters


Right now some of my "must have" items for the summer are: my jean skirt, my distressed boyfriend jeans, my cute yellow shorts (from Zara Kids which is kind of weird), my new red sneakers, and my hologram heels. All of them are perfect items to throw on on a casual summer day. I usually combine these items with a plain t-shirt and a pair of sunglasses.

Even though we would all love to have a huge closet with all of these features, not having a lot of closet space is no problem. I have recently discovered a really cool storage service that helps you organize all your stuff. It is called MakeSpace, and I encourage you guys to check them out and download their app! I will surely be using the service when I move to Chicago in September, especially considering the limited space available in the dorms I'll be staying at. This is basically how it works: they pick up your stuff, take it to their storage facilities and store them, and then you can ask for them back whenever you want and they will be delivered to your place. It's super easy and convenient! Here's a link to their self-storage locations so you guys can use it as a resource if it is available in your area.





Let me know if you guys like my ideas for my closet and describe your own dream closet! Thanks a lot for reading!
