Creating Your Perfect Wardrobe: The Ultimate Closet Audit Guide

Your closet is a treasure trove, reflecting your personal style and fashion journey. As we embark on the journey of a closet audit, let's explore the key principles and steps that will transform your closet into a harmonious haven of versatile pieces and outfits that make you feel your absolute best.

Principle 1: Embrace Your Unique Style

The first step in the closet audit process is to embrace your unique style without any reservations. Dress however you want, regardless of whether it's in style, considered too young or too old. Life is too short to be restricted by fashion norms. Dream big about your personal style and create a vision board or Pinterest inspiration board that captures your ideal wardrobe. Consider adopting a personal color palette and even developing a personal uniform that makes getting dressed each day a breeze.

Principle 2: Versatility is Key

A closet filled with pieces that work seamlessly together is the ultimate goal. No matter the size of your wardrobe, its true power lies in the versatility of its components. Every piece should have the potential to mix and match with others, ensuring you have countless outfit possibilities at your fingertips.

Steps to a Closet Audit: Organizing Your Fashion Haven

1. Dream, Plan, and Organize:

- Envision your dream personal style and ideal wardrobe. Create a vision board or Pinterest inspiration to guide your closet's transformation. Decide on your preferred method of organization - whether by garment type, occasion, or season. As mentioned above, consider a personal color palette and contemplate adopting a personal uniform that aligns with your lifestyle.

2. Declutter with Purpose:

- Begin the audit process by taking everything out of your closet. Divide your clothes into four categories: keep, repair, donate, and archive (for sentimental items only). Let go of pieces that no longer serve you, freeing yourself from any guilt associated with parting with certain items.

3. Repair and Preserve:

- Set aside items that need repair. This is a good time to develop a relationship with a trusted tailor! Preserve any sentimental items in archival boxes or consider turning them into a cherished quilt.

4. Donate with Conviction:

- Once you've decided on donation items, take them straight to your car to ensure you won't change your mind. Embrace the idea that your donated pieces will bring joy to someone else's life.

5. Organize with Purpose:

- Reorganize your keep pile, using your preferred method of organization. Arrange items by garment type, season, and color. Personalize the arrangement based on your unique needs and preferences. For example, the first time I did this process I first divided my wardrobe into breastfeeed friendly or not breastfeeding friendly as that was top of mind then.

The Power of Letting Go

One of the most empowering aspects of this closet audit approach is the freedom it grants you to let go of clothes that no longer serve you. As your style evolves, so does your wardrobe. Release the items that no longer align with your current self and embrace the excitement of curating a closet that reflects the present you. As you learn to embrace your own unique style though, you will buy fewer clothes you don't wear! You will rarely buy clothes you wind up donating after one use which keeps clothes out of landfills. I like to call this Medium Paced Fashion. It's not that I never buy fast fashion and it's not that I only buy handmade clothes. I am somewhere in between-buying my clothes with purpose from almost any store that suits my style.

Embrace Your Organized Haven

By following the principles of embracing your unique style and focusing on versatility, you'll discover that you don't need a tiny capsule wardrobe to achieve a well-organized closet. Each piece you keep will serve a purpose, working harmoniously with others to create a myriad of outfit possibilities.
