How To Grow Your Closet

I recently visited Austin for the day and I ate at this super cute place called Crepe Crazy! I wanted to shoot my outfit and I loved the wall for a quick shoot. If you’re in Austin I would so recommend. Not only is the food great but the staff are all deaf and speak sign language! It was a great experience and I cannot wait to go back!

Back to growing your closet, I have a few tips that I have done unknowingly. I did not realize how many pieces I had until I came home over the break and brought all of my clothes home from San Marcos. I have a small closet in my room, and I use the room next to mine and the small walk in closet as well. Both are pretty full and I realized that while I cannot take it all back to school with me, I have acquired a lot of pieces over the years. Check out some of my tips below and share some of your own in the comments!

  1. Buy the basics. Always build the foundation first, before buying any expensive pieces, make sure you have your basic jeans, tanks, tees, and sweaters to build on
  2. Get one item per month. I followed this rule religiously for a long time! Buying one clothing item I really needed a month slowly adds up. For expensive items save up your money from a previous month to buy it then
  3. Don’t throw things away! You never know when an item will come back in style, unless you really do not fit, do not donate things unless you’re completely sure!
  4. Grow your accessories as well. A statement necklace or new shoes will create more outfit options and combinations, therefore growing your closet
  5. Balance the long lasting pieces and the statement pieces. While velvet is a trend right now, buy the trendy items, but a cashmere sweater will last you many more winters.

  1. New follower here, and I just HAVE to say… you and your style is so cute! I’m so jealous of your confidence and sense of fashion! Being a broke college student and young mother, I feel like I don’t have the money to achieve the style I aspire to have. TJ Maxx has been my go-to lately for all things bags and even some clothing, so I’m glad I read this blog post! I’m going to try to incorporate the idea of getting one piece of clothing a month and see how well it works for me, without breaking the bank by trying to make one “big” shopping trip every 6 months or so, if even then! Thank you for the wonderful advice 🙂


  2. Great tips girl! My closet has gotten full over the years as well. I’ve noticed I don’t use some of the things at all. So I put them in a suitcase and keep them in the garage. When I open the suitcase again 6 months later, I feel like I have brand new clothes HAHAHA.
