I love progress photos.
I recently decided to start uniform dressing, which means that a portion of my closet is going to be leaving me soon. This is a very good thing for a few reasons. First and foremost – uniform dressing will answer my question of “what will I wear today?” And second, this means that I feel great about 86ing non-uniform clothes that I haven’t worn in a year or two. Third, who doesn’t want more space in their closet?
I hope that my closet clean out and simplification will inspire you. For the record I do have an ample sized closet that can handle my clothes, but what’s the point of having so many occupied hangers and “nothing to wear?!” Nul point.

The decision to start uniform dressing serves a few goals:
- No more wondering what to wear
- No more random clothes coming home
- Reclaim physical closet space
- Reduce hangers in use
- Change remaining hangers to matching stainless steel
Each goal holds equal weight – so I am excited to start meeting them.
After thoughtful consideration I chose my style uniform, which has always been a favorite; white top with black bottoms. It’s more involved than that, so much that I devoted an entire post to it; ☞ How to start uniform dressing.
The short version is that choosing a style uniform is wonderful. And with a vision of the future I can better deal with past decisions. So now I am taking progress photos as my closet changes too.
The following photos are taken on the first of the month. Like all transformations the change will not happen overnight; new habits take time. Welcome to my closet!
↑ So many things that haven’t been worn in two years! So many different hanger types!
↑ My dream is to have most of my daily clothes hanging on the top rod. Undershirts are folded in the dresser, sweaters are gently rolled into hanging canvas organizers, then dresses and skirts are hanging in a perpendicular section.
↑ I want to reduce my hanging shirts, but I love these breezy long-sleeves in the summer! I might reverse the hangers this summer to help me slim down the collection.
↑ April Closet coming soon!
