So while Rob put together our new Parker Spirits Cabinet from Crate and Barrel, and with the new year at my new school starting on Monday.. yeah I know; its shocking isn’t it because the only perk to being a teacher, and the only reason why people become teachers, is because of the summer… right? [insert eye roll here] More on that frustration here. But anyway, with my school year starting on Monday I decided it was time to do what women do periodically (I think?) and try everything on in my closet to ensure that it fits and I still like it. 🙂 So I did that, and in the process, discovered some surprises. Like these pants! Which happen to look good with both of the different shoes I have on my feet.

I also discovered that I have a lot of work dresses but not many skirts that fit, and that what my students last year told me, that all I wear is pink and purple, is true. The evidence is below:
While at it, I decided to sort my shoes on my shoe rack, which is sure to make Rob happy as he always gawks at the bottom of my closet when I get ready in the morning (when he’s up). Except for the fact that a few months ago I organized his for him. But I happened to organize them in a particular way.. flats together, peep toe pumps together, other dress shoes, etc. I even put a category in for shoes I most often wear to work (see below).

The next thing I did was organize my closet into sections with the left side shown in the pictures above being designated for work clothes. I then sorted into dresses, t-shirts, tanks /shells, sweaters and bottoms. It gave me a good insight on what I had to wear starting Monday. Hopefully this will shorten my time getting ready in the morning. Lastly, I fluffed everything that was wrinkly in the dryer and hung them back up. When I was done being anal retentive, the husband was done assembling our wine cabinet, and looking proud. So then we organized our glassware :). All in all, a good afternoon!
