This past Sunday, we woke up to sunny skies, only to find out that it was all a tease before the rain. D actually took the pictures as it began to drizzle (thanks D, you're the best!) On Friday, while cleaning up the apartment, I decided to go through D's closet and organize his shirts. Let me tell you, my husband has more clothes that any boy I know! I went through all of the work/dressy shirts and hung them up properly (D, you better keep it that way!) on the top rack of the closet, while the casual button downs, polos and zip-up jacket-y things (yes, he has multiple!) found a better home on the bottom rack.
When we got married and moved in together, I knew that I would discover things about him (and his family) that were very different than the way I (and my family) did things. One of these things really bothered me: D uses the wire hangers from the dry cleaners for just about every shirt. While this may seem minor, those hangers are meant to be temporary until the freshly laundered clothes are transferred from their plastic shield back into your closet. They have very sharp edges where the metal is exposed (the top part of the hanger and the twisted part around the neck of the hanger), and these edges can snag clothing very easily leaving pulled threads or even small holes! My mother threw these out immediately and told us never to hang clothing on them because they can wreak havoc in a crowded closet. One of my 'new wife initiatives' is to slowly weed those hangers out of D's closet and replace them with harmless, plastic, wooden or the really cool 'no-slip fabric-y covered kind of hangers. Therefore, in an attempt to get a good deal on a lot of hangers, we went to Costco on Sunday (luckily we got home before the major rains came.) I will now continue the process of making over D's closet and rehanging his shirts on nice hangers (you're welcome honey:)).
I just got this khaki colored skirt back from the dry cleaners (and it was hung up on a proper hanger in my closet immediately:)) and I wanted to wear it. I really love the chambray trend this summer/fall and I decided that this color and texture combo was perfect for a bit dressy/bit casual. I felt that the muted colors needed a little oomph, so I belted with this skinny pink/coral belt. I livened it up even more with the brightly colored headscarf, the coral colored gladiator sandal with the great chain detail, and my great cherry colored bag. Since I got my new glasses, my contacts have been on a bit of a hiatus...but don't worry, they're comin' back!

Does your closet need a makeover?? Do you use those awful dry cleaner hangers?
