Never Enough



H&M dress, YSL pumps

A while back, I received some requests to do a closet tour. I thought long and hard, but ultimately decided not to comply.Honestly, it's nothing worth seeing. The Mr. and I live in a spacious two bedroom condo. Our closet situation is good but could be better, in my opinion. We have 4 closets in total -- 2 decent walk-ins and 2 for our coats. Plenty of space for two, but of course, never enough for a woman.
For the most part, I am neat but somewhat disorganized. Everything in our home has a place. Whether they belong where I put them is questionable, but they are put away and out of sight. With that said, my closets are very disorganized. However, they weren't always like that. At one point, all my clothes were separated by work and non-work. I kept all my work clothes in the master bedroom and fun clothes in the guest room. Eventually, work and fun became mixed and it all went down hill from there.


Curtain(s) & duvet cover - DIY, Chair - West Elm

Behind me is where I house some of my shoes, with some in my coat closet and the rest piled along the hallway. Also, if you look closely, there's a picture of me when I was 20 - standing in the middle wearing a red polka-dotted dress. I looked much different back then. HA. Kidding, I'm on the far right.

  4. I know exactly what you mean! When my sister moved out, I took over her room which has 2 full sized closets AND I have two outside racks to hang my jackets on!! Your curtains look amazing! You have inspired me to make my own curtains in the future when I get my own place!

  5. I could never imagine you being Minnie Mouse. I think you're being a funny Khatu... or are you serious, in which, I think, wtf? really? I loved seeing pictures of your guest room. House tours are different from closet tours. I wouldn't give anyone a tour of my closet even if they asked. 1. because it's not exciting, and 2. I'm like you, I'm organized, but I'm not. No one needs to see that.

    I think a house tour would be cool, though. But I'm luckier than most of your readers, I got to see it when we Skyped! We need to do that again. It was nerdy and fun.

  6. Closet space never seems to be enough! Mine is awful. I told my husband I'm half tempted to make him use the storage outside. LOL

    The dress & pumps are gorgeous btw! Also, love the soft waves in your hair.

  12. Hello! Just curious if your azur speedy is 25 or 30. I'm debating between the 2 and don't know if the 30 will be too big for me. Thanks!

  17. @jean terrible joke I guess. i'm on the far right.

    @anonymousI have both. However, there's a picture of Jean and I, standing side by side, me wearing the 30 and jean wearing the 25. We are about the same height. you can probably compare the size difference better that way. http://iamkhatu.blogspot.com/2011/07/lets-meet.html
