I love exploring style and sharing amazing finds. So, here it is: What I'm currently loving, rocking and using!!
GWK Fashion +Home!
Cleaning out your closet is one of the best steps you can take in creating a working wardrobe. Many times, creativity in how you put pieces together is encouraged by clarity of availability!
Grab you a glass a wine and try on everything! This goes for the minis, too. (not the wine but. the fashion show, ha, ha!) Immediately clear out what is too small and cannot be worn.
Organize accessories and shoes for maximal wear. Once you have everything in its place, begin assembling winning fits.
I noticed that I would make the best outfits on a whim, so, I went a step further and began jotting down perfect parings as reminders of what previously worked. It's been a game changer and so much so, I started a baseball card slot system for my closet. I'll be sharing that soon!

Judge me not, but while we own hundreds of books, I do NOT like them being the Lone Ranger on our bookshelves. Truly, them not being color coordinated and accompanied by chic accessories annoys me, lol.
While everyone loves a beautiful bookshelf, creating one that is both aesthetically beautiful and functional is an art. What I've learned:
Get your measurements first- This will help you make adequate selections for your shelves.
Grab your book before accessories- Decide on the amount of books you wish to display. this gives you an outline for the amount of accessories needed.
Cover if necessary- If you books aren't already perfect for the color scheme of you room, grab fabric or quality paper and cover them! you can't go wrong with custom!
Keep it minimal- Don't go overboard. Clean and streamlined spaces give a more put together presentation.
Stack and stare- Take your time and try many variations of each shelf!

When looking for coordinating items or matching ensembles, you are likely not going to find them all in one place. Before you settle for what's available from one retailer, shop around. Often times buyers pick similar items for different retailers and the chance is high for you to find your winning items various places.
Only want a hint of print? Try styling with solid colors and choose to keep prints and patterns isolated to accessories!
This same tip applies to home goods!
Style is more about how you feel and you're never fully dressed without a smile and confidence!
