Top: Yesstyle | Scarf: Gift | Pants: Gap | Shoes: Gift | Hello Kitty Watch: Gift | Clutch c/o Glow Kouture

Well, who cares what the Groundhog said, the weather is still warm and I’m loving it.  It just makes me long for Spring that much more and allows me to keep my winter clothes in the spare closet right wear they belong.  Yes, even though we moved to a bigger house with a bigger closet, I still have an overflow closet for all my clothes, can you blame a girl?  And another closet for shoes.  Don’t judge, I’m sure your situation is similar, I see you nodding your head.  And especially now with this new colored denim trend and me wanting to get some in every color under the sun, that spare closet is key.  I am totally LOVING this grey pair as it’s subtle, goes with a lot, is one of my all-time fave colors, and is probably the closest I’ll ever get to owning a pair of white denim/pants (which I’m kind of afraid of).  By the way, did you notice the pattern mixing here?  It’s polka dots (Glow Kouture is having a 30% off sale with code PRESIDENT30 through the end of 2/20 – go get an amazing clutch for yourself so we can be twinsies) and florals!  I was paying attention to your comments in this post, I’m a great listener (errrr reader).  OK, let’s hope I didn’t jinx anything weather-wise because of this post.

How many closets do your clothes/shoes/bags take up?

    Ug. I wish I had enough clothes to fill two closets! But for some reason I always go through and empty my closet. Why? I don’t know.

    Glad the sun has been showing its face for you!

    Closet space is a serious issue for me, because in our flat space is SO limited. I have one tiny closet in my room and then keep my dresses and coats in Jurgen’s closet in the study.

    We’re hoping to upgrade soon though :)

    Like how you kept the outfit colors simple so the scarf, shoes and clutch really pop! :)

    Oh geez. Do not get me started on closet space. You would think they three closets were enough. Alas…

    Cute outfit! Glad you could sneak this outfit post in!

    You look so cute! I love the clutch and the scarf, adorable. Our weather is just starting to warm up. And I am embarressed to say that I have one tiny closet. Because we live in France and that’s how they do things here, it’s so small! But we move a lot so it’s hard to have a lot of stuff, so I guess it works!

    My hubby and I just moved into a new place and I’m lucky enough to have an entire room that I’ve turned into a closet! Now eagerly awaiting warmer weather to start spicing up the outfits I am putting together. Loving the orange btw! xo

    I have 2 closets in my condo, I also have an armoir full of sweaters, a dress full of long sleeve tees and so forth…and at my parent’s house I have a closet full of the season of clothing I am not wearing. Yup….I have a problem.

    Haha! I have one closet that is half my clothes. I do have a dresser, though, and some of my more fancier dresses — like my wedding dress — are stored downstairs because there’s no room for them upstairs.

    Sandy, I just emptied out my closets so I could assess what kinds of clothes I had hiding in their depths… I now am convinced I need a whole room to put everything I own on display so I can actually wear them!

    Love the grey denim on you! especially with those darling pink heels! :)

    I definitely noticed the mixed prints! I love the orange with the light gray and blue!

    I have one huge walk in closet but I could definitely use a separate closet for my shoes. DREAM

    I only have one closet, which is probably good, because it keeps me from having too much stuff. Overflow would have to go in the garage.

    You look fabulous, Sandy! And just for the record, in my house, we have the opposite problem! My hubby is the one with tons of clothes spilling over to my side of the closet :)

    Hi Katie, This picture of your son is so sweet! I pblarboy would have done the exact same thing with covering him up and leaving him there, especially because I know the minute I moved him, he would be awake! You asked me on my blog post this morning about whether or not I made the fabric diaper bags. I wish I could say I made them…I’m so not a seamstress! I got one as a gift for my first baby (girl), and then with the second (boy) a year and a half later, I had my mom make me one. She’s the REAL seamstress in the family!! I bet they have tutorials for this kind of thing. I love have the diapers organized, and of course, looking cute!OK, sorry…I just realized how long this comment is. Next time, I’ll have to shoot you an e-mail. ;)Hope you’re having a great Monday!
