• Supermom vibes in the carpool line! The schools are getting all this @supermomculture Magic this school year! Thank you guys for all the support! Hats are almost sold out! Beanies & bags are gone 🙅🏾‍♀️. They will be restocked later this fall. Link in profile #supermom 📷 @kaynjames
  • Didn’t I just have Harper?! Geez! My baby’s 1st day of PreK 3 (yes, she’s 3!) was today and she basically acts like she runs the school. I think she was happy to have time away from mommy after the long summer. It was nice to have a few hours to myself. Now need to sit down and plan out all this time I have available (3.5 hrs) 😩. Mr swears the girls are gone 8 hrs a day and have so much free time 😒. #firstdayofschool
  • Nothing like having lunch dates with your girls while the kids are at school. Counting down to Harper’s first day. Follow @districtmotherhued for special discount on @supermomculture merch!

  • Came back from an amazing weekend in Durham, NC at the @theprevailingwoman conf back to Supermom mode. @letoyaluckett snatched all the edges when she said “If you are not kind to yourself, why would you expect someone else to treat us better than we treat ourselves?” My biggest takeaway is that I need to take care of myself so I can continue to be a supermom.  Gray tees and jean hats available now (bags are sold out)! Link in profile. #supermom #supermomculture
  • Sent my baby off to 4th grade this morning. She decided to wear a top she already had and she picked this hair style. She’s also excited to have a black woman teacher and principal. I was so hype that my little brown girl (only one in her grade) will get to see someone that looks like every day during her education journey. #firstdayofschool #blackgirlmagic #atlbraids #targetstyle
  • I’m having an amazing time @sheprevailsconference by @theprevailingwoman. If you watch my stories you will see them in action 💃🏾. I talked about the balancing act on a panel with @_kayalex_ & @themillennialmamma. The consensus is there is no balance.  I’ll get deeper in to that in a post later because I think we can all relate to that.  Thanks to @suakokobetty I was looking super fly in my kimono and matching shorts. My shoes are like 10 years old 😩. #sheprevails #prevailingwoman
  • The final days of summer! #AD We recently had a family fun day at @townctratcobb. Growing up, my mom and I would go to the mall every Saturday.  It was always an adventure.  Now, Town Center at Cobb is filled with family fun activities and of course, great shopping!  Beat the heat and enjoy a fun family day.

  • Did you know I had sisters?  Here are my two older sisters (far left and far right), my niece and my beautiful mom. I don’t think I talk about my sisters enough since people assume I don’t have any. I also have an older brother but he’s 😜. I’m the baby. We definitely don’t agree on a lot of things but when you mess with one of us, you’ll get the wrath from all of us. My #rideordies #nationalsisterday
  • So it’s #nationalsistersday or something like that. My girls are at the age where everything results in a fight, like wrestling match fights. But when one gets in trouble the other is sad.  Harper is already a ride or die sister. If Peyton gets in trouble, Harper takes it upon herself to tell us off and that we need to apologize. The funniest thing. Does anyone else have kids that fight all the time? #disneymom  #nationalsisterday

Inside My Closet

June 17, 2015

I’m slowly checking things off my home bucket list before the new baby arrives.  Peyton’s room (here) and closet (here), my home office (here) and living room are pretty much done.  Well, as done as they are gonna get for now.  My kitchen is close to being complete (update here).  One room that is very important to me is my closet. I was determined to get my closet functioning before baby comes.  We had our closet designed using Elfa from The Container Store.

I decided to “display” some of my bags on a shelf using dividers from Elfa at The Container Store.  I left the handbags that I use the most out of their dust bags.  I left my leather handbags in the dust bags.  I also put my smaller bags in the large basket on the top shelf.

This is my section for dresses and pants.  I thought it would be plenty of room, but as you can see, I’ve managed to pack it to the gills.

On the right side of my closet, I have my double hanging racks for tops and jackets.  I folded my jeans (that I pray I can fit again) at the top and used dividers to keep them neat.  Because that space is tight, I used my old shoe racks (HERE).  I stacked three on top of each other.  To the right of this picture is my accessories wall.  The baskets are filled with hats and scarves.  The drawers have belts, scarves, sunglasses and more jewelry.  I plan on adding some Elfa drawers in the empty space.

I wanted my accessories where I could see them.  I decided to put my necklaces and earrings at eye level so I pull pieces easily.  I used tie/scarf hangers to hang the necklaces.  I may change this out in the future, but I’m sticking with it for now.  I also left out the box that Mister gave me when he proposed.  That’s my boo!
master elfa closet 5If you squint really hard, you can see Mister’s section behind mine.  We’ve shared a closet for several years.  I was sure that sharing a closet would break us up but he stays on his side and we stay happily married.  His side is not as cute as mine.  I thought about fixing up his side for Father’s Day or his upcoming birthday.  Since Father’s Day is this weekend, more like his birthday in July.

So that’s our closet.  Nothing spectacular but it’s organized and clean (for now). It’s more wide than it is deep, so the space needed some design help.  I believe in a good foundation for your closet to maximize the space.  High and low hanging racks will instantly double your space.  Using velvet hangers saves you so much space and makes your closet look super neat.  I also switch out my closet from spring/summer to fall/winter.  It saves so much space and I don’t have to search through sweaters looking for tanks.  Let me know what you think.  Do you have a custom closet system?  What are your closet organizing tips?

    Great job organizing your closet, love it! I like the idea of keeping spring/summer and fall/winter things together.

    Looks nice. I’ve decided the only way I’m going to get closet organization is to move. 🙁
