Tips for Closet Organization

I love having an organized closet and since I just moved my new closet is like a blank canvas. I have been looking on Pinterest to get ideas and tips on how to organize my space. I have found that the easiest way to locate my clothes is to arrange them by item, style, length, and color so I can see everything clearly. Now that I have some inspiration I can organize my closet to my likings. Check back in the next few weeks to see what I end up doing with my closet. How do you organize your closet?

I hope you all have a fabulous Thursday!

I love watching the red carpet of all of the award shows to see what gowns are going to grace us. Every show there seems to be a theme and for this year Emmy award show there was a ton of white, which I love! Ever since getting engaged all I ever want to wear is white, I figure this is the best time since I am a bride to be. Who made your best dressed list?

I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday!

Sorry that I have been M.I.A in the last two weeks between the move and the past few days I came down with a stomach bug the last couple of days, but I am back this week!

Even though it is still pretty hot and humid here I am a little over my summer clothes so I have been starting to wear my fall clothes. When I start wearing my fall clothes I try and keep it light weight and flowy since it is so hot out. Are you tired of your summer clothes yet?

I hope you all enjoyed my guest for today’s post, Dexter my family dog.

Have a fabulous Monday!

After our three days of travel we made it to Buffalo Grove! If you follow me on Instagram you already know what all has been going on, but I am sorry that I have been neglecting It Girl Adventure. When we arrived in the midwest Howard and I stayed at my parents house for a couple of days and then we headed to our apartment and we finally got internet & cable yesterday.

The pictures above are just some of the pictures I took on our trip to the midwest, the landscape was very pretty but also a little boring. We are so happy to be back in the midwest and ready to get all settled into our apartment.

I hope you all have a fabulous Tuesday!

On Friday Howard and I ventured to San Francisco for Outside Lands Music Festival and we had a wonderful time. We had the chance to see many entertainers and Howard was ecstatic to see Kanye West, which was a great concert. When I found out we were going to Outside Lands I started planning my festival outfit right away! Festival fashion is so fun and you can be creative with what you decide to wear. I used Rachel Zoe and Nicole Richie as my inspiration behind my outfit, (I was thinking 70’s). Have you made it to any music festivals this year? Who was your inspiration behind your look?

Today is the day that we are moving to Buffalo Grove! I am going to apologize ahead of time because I am most likely going to be absent this week. We are taking three day to get there so follow along on Instagram to see our progress!

I hope you all have a fabulous Monday!
