With summer here, we know clothing gets smaller. However, it is also a time to show off our legs.
This is a great post from StyleCaster on how to wear short-shorts and not look cheap.

Originally posted on StyleCaster:

There’s an ongoing argument about shorts. More specifically, what length is too short, and whether the summer staple can be worn to work or other places you want to appear put-together. Here’s the thing: Most styles—even short shorts—can look remarkably stylish, but it all depends on the cut, the material, and the fit.

When it comes down to it, most shorts out there are pretty short—unless you opt for aboive-the-knee bermuda styles or on-trend culottes—so styling them in a chic way is key. Skin-tight bootie shorts? Save ‘em for the beach. High-waisted short-shorts that hit your thigh, have a wide leg, and look amazing when paired with a button-down blouse and a chic shoe? Perfect summer look. Just remember to keep the leg opening fairly wide, your top half pretty covered up, and your shoes not precariously high.

Sneak peek into Rhode Island’s first The Container Store

16 May

photo 2

Every organizers dream is coming true! Rhode Island’s very first The Container Store is opening up this weekend in Cranston, RI. This will be there 66th store to date.

I couldn’t help but squeal with excitement when I was arriving at the VIP party last night. As an organizer and fanatic of revamping my household, I couldn’t even contain myself when I stepped foot in there.

 

As I walked around, I was so impressed with how everything was laid out and that each department was not overwhelming.

Here’s a look into some of my favorite things that I will most definitely be purchasing:

For Travel

Drawstring Jewelry Pouch~ Durable, water-resistant and made from nylon. It has a padded base and it has a drawstring closure.

Waterproof Pouches~Ingenious SealLock™ closure keeps water,  sand and dirt out. The ultra-clear window allows for full use of touch screen and voice options.

Critter Luggage Tags and Destination Stripe Luggage Tags  ~ These tags are so cute and different! Make your luggage stand out with any of the above. Both are made from durable plastic.                       

Pack This! Classic Checklist~ Can we say this list is genius!? Even for the most organized person, it’s great to have on hand to remind you of things you need to take when you’re traveling.

For the Home ~ Closet edition

The Container Store is known for their elfa line. This is one thing, I need to get my hands on. You can either go into the store and meet with an elfa expert or try and design your very own design on line. It’s amazing how any closet space can be totally utilized if done correctly.

Primary Tubular Hangers ~ I’m ususally one to just pick white or maybe one color. But I love the idea of maybe using a color for my shirts and another color for pants, etc.

Our Shoe Boxes ~  Exclusive to The Container Store only, these clear plastic boxes are wonderful to have for your shoes. If you looked into my closet (which I have posted on here) I have all my shoes in their boxes, but it is sometimes hard to tell which shoe is which. These boxes are brilliant!!

For the Bathroom & Laundry Room

Sometimes our bathrooms and laundry rooms don’t get enough love or organization that they should.

Acrylic Lipstick Risers and 12-Section Acrylic Nail Polish Riser ~ Both are made with durable clear acrylic, which makes them long lasting. The acrylic nail polish riser is exclusive to The Container Store.

Large Overcabinet Hair Dryer Holder~ This is what I need in my life. I’m so tired of just throwing my hair dryer under my sink and making it get tangled with everthing. This overcabinet holder is perfect! It’s made from metal with a nickel finish.

3-Section Acrylic Hinged-Lid Box~I don’t know why I never thought to put my three things together but this would make my morning routine a little bit easier and more organized.

Large Micro Mesh Bra Wash Bag~Now this. This I need. I have mesh bags that I wash my delicates in and usually put my bras in so they don’t get ruined, but this will keep the shape of our bras, which is the most important.

White 2-Drawer Mesh Organizer~ I can’t even explain how much I love these. I have them in my bathrooms and my kitchen. They helped keep the underneath so much more organized. No more of just throwing things under the sink to never be seen again.

For the Jewels

How many of us keep our jewelry out on our bureaus or in those tiny little pouches? I know I’m guilty of it. These organizers allow you to see what you have. Jewelry of all kinds, is meant to be worn and seen! Let it stand out ladies!

Premium Acrylic Chest~This is what I need to have in my life. I love the whole idea of being able to see it right there in front of you, displayed beautifully.

Expandable Jewelscope Jewelry Tree by Umbra~This tree features 8 branches and expands from 15″ to 23-1/2″ in height. Perfect for some of those long necklaces you may have.

Small Stacking Acylic Trays ~ These are also another affordable way to keep your jewelry looking organized. It’s 100% acrylic the tray has 8 adjustable dividers.

I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek and have created some ideas of your own. Make sure to stop by their Grand Opening this weekend!!!! The Container Store has partnered with Crossroads Rhode Island is donating 10% Grand Opening Sales to them.

Can’t wait to hear what you all think! What will be something you definitely want to buy?

Happy organizing!

Spring cleaning your closet? Helpful tips to make it easier

7 May

Kate_BosworthNow that May has officially arrived, I hope you’re not like me and have put aside the task of spring cleaning your closet. Every morning I walk into it and literally just stare. I know it needs to be done, but it’s a task I’m dreading.

Looking for some tips or motivation, I came across this post from Who What Wear that has some simple and realistic tips. I may just have to write them down to remind myself. I always hold onto certain items and think, “Weeeelll maybe I’ll wear it.” And here it is a year later and it wasn’t touched.

Hopefully this weekend, I will finally cleanse my closet and feel better going into my work week and not just stare into my closet every single morning.

Remember to donate, donate, donate if you can. There’s plenty of bins around town or they’ll even pick up for you and consignment shops. Make sure you take advantage if you can.

I also found this checklist that may be helpful. Remember it’s just a guide and you may adjust it as you see fit.

Happy cleaning!
