Fall is here and even though purchasing new items it's a must we should definitely start to clean up our closet. Here are few steps which will help you.
1) Donate or Toss your Summer Pieces
Start narrowing down your summer pieces. What I do I put the clothes into two groups, one is donate, one is toss. If you have transitional pieces which you can use for fall do keep them. If the clothes which you think you are going to wear again for next summer you can keep those two. Remaining clothes which are poor conditions toss it and the one which are still good but you know you will not wear them donate them. This always makes me feel so good that someone else will get a good use of my clothes.
2) Store Non-Transitional Summer Items
Pieces which you are going to keep you need to divide them into two piles. One which you can wear it transitioned in fall and one which you can't like sandals, straw hats, shoulder-less tops.
3) Bring Out Fall Pieces
Move pieces like jackets, coats, pieces which you will layer as you will need them. It is better to organize them and have them ready.
4) Organize Your Items By Priority
Now you know what items you will need for fall and is time to organize them by Priorities. The way how I organize it is from lightest to heaviest. Lightest one are in the front like T shirts, simple pieces, pieces which I can layer or transition summer pieces and then I will have in the back the jumpers, and warmer pieces. Of course organizing then the jackets and shoes. Clean up the booties and shoes for fall.
5) Clean Your Closet And Your Drawers
This is very important, get your duster, and spray, Clean your mirrors, your draws everything. Once everything is clean, then just fold all your clothes, this is important if you have drawers and not all your clothes hang as once they are nicely folded then you prevent them to get wrinkly. Sometimes if needed you can have additional containers for remaining clothes. I don't know about you but once the closet or your room is nicely clean and all is organized I feel so much better.
Once everything is organized and put in place I like to add into my drawers beauty soaps. They just leave nice smells in the drawers. Lavender soaps is my favorite or Coconut one.
Hope this post was helpful and do let me know what you do when the season is changing, how you like to organize your clothes. I am always keen to learn something new.

I thought I will share with you my wishlist, what I would like to get for fall season. My friends are asking me what they could shop as we do have lots of options to choose from. I am going by my minimalist approach therefore I am trying to select something which I will be able to wear all over again. Here are few ideas of what I would like.
1) High Shaft Clear Heel Booties in Dusty Rose Color
I am obsess with these boots, now my partner can't stand them and he is begging me not to get them but I just love them. I don't have anything like this therefore they maybe attracting me more (shop here)
2) Knitwear and Sweaters
Since we are going into Fall Season and where I am is not too cold but not sunny neither Sweaters are must have in the wardrobe.
Here are few of mine favorites I would love to get. Just note all of them are from SheIn (shop here)
Who knows me they know I love jackets (any kind) as I believed is important to have a good jacket as this is the first item of clothing which people see on you. (shop here)
I love blouses as you can style them so many ways and they go with everything, jeans, skirt, pants. (shop here)
I always wore pencil skirts, as I do like how they highlight my silhouette but is nice to get little change and here are few I would love to have in my wardrobe.
I find it that once I have my "Motivation Board" this is what I call it, it helps me to concentrate only on clothes which I really want or need. This really helps to stop as well with the bitch shopping. I may do a separate blog post about how does it work for me and tell you some tips which will help you to be better in shopping
Let me know in comments below what is your Wishlist for this Fall Season

I love when woman have carrier, I think is very important for self-esteem. I do work and love to progress. I believed dressing well is very important, of-course lots of companies have dress code or uniform but is always important we dress appropriately.
I did few posts about Dress Code see this article here about Your New Work Wear Heroes or 6 Style Rules All Chic Working Woman Follow . As you see I do like to write of how woman should dress or at least guide them. I just want to share with you my ideas. I have recently been asked by my friend, "Maria I am going to have an interview what shall I wear?" and this give me an idea for a post. Here are few tips / ideas I want to share with you.
I know that every company has its own rules, and code dress, but I like to sometimes think little outside of the box. What I mean not having the idea that when you are going for an interview it has to be the "The Black Suit". We are in 21st century and we do have the freedom of expressing ourselves through fashion. Out there we have great selections. Therefore explore it, take the opportunity and show you can dress well.
These little ideas will give you confident and set you up for the day ahead of you.
1) Chic (Skirt Option)
If you wish to wear skirt why not wearing Pleated Midi Skirt with a classic basic top which will streamline the overall silhouette and you can maybe continue with the neutral accessories or add pop of color either for heels or handbag.
2) Chic (Trouser Option)
For ladies who do not like skirt and would feel more comfortable wearing pants, go for any color except black. I like to keep the neutral nude colors. This is the kind of traditional combination but if you change the color of pants like silver with with white blouse you transforming the outfit from traditional outfit to a nice chic outfit.
3) Chic (Dress Option)
If you wish to add little color go for a dress with nice color in elegant shape and keep your accessories simple. I would suggest to have length below the knee as anything above the knee you will look a bit cheap.
Hope you liked the little ideas remember you don't have to always wear the black suit, you can add little touch to make the outfit classy and chic.
Let me know what you wear in case you had an interview you can maybe even sent me the picture I would love that.
Wishing you all a lovely day
Just to note the pictures above I had searched it online, I have no link to it but credit for the pictures does not go to me.
I am a person who loves colors, but I also recently came a fun of nude colors.
I love playing with style, with colors, with texture of the material.
I always wanted to do a post just for a particular color and I thought which one should I do first and I have decided to choose "Pink" love the blush pink.
In my opinion this color can be very elegant but if you change and add different material and tone to it you can style it sporty and I want to show you how.
One of mine favorite look is styling pink with white, it's just give the elegant to the outfit.
If you add pink with denim is more sporty look.
Let me know which one is your favorite. Here are few pieces which I own and are pink.
I believe that what you wear tells a lot about your personality. Fashion are clothes, but style is what you do with it.
