Fabulous Closet Makeover

Messy closet

Before

Two weeks before wrist surgery my BFF opened my closet door and shrieked in horror “you need to fix this!”.  She was right…my closet was a total mess and not cast friendly.  So we set out to create an organized, cast friendly closet that could be maintained with one hand.  The results…

After

After

Thanks to my friend’s creativity and vision we succeeded in making the perfect closet.  Now that I’m in an arm cast I realize that this reorganization has made my life so much easier and fabulous!  If you have time I recommend reevaluating your closet before becoming a bandaged beauty.  It will save you so much time and effort in the long run.

Get This Closet

We used the 4ft-8ft Classic White Deluxe starter closet kit from Martha Stewart at Home Depot.  Only $159 and free shipping. I also ordered two extra white shelves for additional storage.  We found baskets and wooden hangers at HomeGoods.

These baskets are perfect for easy access to yoga pants, pjs, and shorts.

Pool Party Fashion

Just because you’re not swimming doesn’t mean you can’t make some fashion waves this summer.

Arm cast fashion

I’m loving these white cropped jeans from Ann Taylor Loft.   The big button hole makes it easier to get on and off with one hand.  Note – it make take some practice to master the buttoning pants with one hand thing so give yourself time when getting dressed.  Also, you may prefer a sleeveless version of this Lilly Pulitzer polo so your cast does not have to pass through an arm hole.

Throw on a pair of flip flops and your ready for some pool side action. Sunscreen required!
