March is a little crazy for me for a few weeks. No, I’m not traveling. But you might remember that I have a thing for Pisces. Besides my husband, my dad, one of my sisters, and my niece, I also picked up three best friends over the years whose birthdays all reside February 22 – March 16. I’m either totally on top of their birthdays or sinking in the sunset. Needless to say, I need to stay organized even more than normal this time of year – hence today’s roundups of all kinds of chic organization. These morsels touch on needs to get your ducks in a row at your desk, in your closet, in the kitchen, and on the go! There’s no excuse not to have your $h!t together now!
So, first up in this chic organization roundup is getting your home life figured out. Decent shelving is an absolute must and I love this circular shelf from Anthropologie. It’s 4.25 inches deep, so it’ll hold all your little things. How cute is that mini succulent on there? Next up is this basket set from Nordstrom Rack. We have two similar baskets in our home that hold blankets (in the living room and in my office next to our fold-out bed). If your closet space is limited, these baskets are great and add a bit of decor that’s far more functional than it looks!
These OXO plastic containers are literally the best thing in my kitchen cupboards. We have pasta, rice, quinoa, flour, sugar, seeds, cereal, and who knows what else in them. They’re easy and keep my life so incredibly organized. And while we’re still in the kitchen, this revolving spice rack will keep you good to go. I LOVE buying spices in bulk, but I hate the rather humongous (is that really how you spell that?!) bags they come in. These individual containers are cute, organized, and ALL THE SAME SIZE!!!
If you (slash you and your husband/girlfriend/fiance/one night stand) have watches, you desperately need a watch box. It’s a great way to organize watches. And this one has a cover to help keep the dust off! And right next door, add this jewelry box from Nordstrom Rack. You know you need one. We don’t even need to talk about why!
Finally, get your bathroom looking slick with matching bath accessories. I love the blue and white of this set with gold trim. You can buy the pieces individually or all together!
Whether you work from home or in an office, good desk accessories make everything better. First, they organize your awesome, necessary things (and possibly some other crap too), but cute desk accessories also make you happy while you’re working away. So get your #girlboss on with chic organization before you take one more note!
Let’s start big. I’m not sure I can ever have enough drawers, so having a desk without drawers certainly puts a cramp in my style. Saving my streamlined life, however, is my file cabinet. This cute one comes in neutral and VIBRANT colors, so you can match it to whatever your space needs.
Ok, back to your desk. I obviously have a thing for rose gold (or copper as they seem to be calling it). This hanging file holder (from Amazon – can you believe it?), this letter holder, and these cute Ted Baker accessories (with a fancy mini drawer situation) all match perfectly and will make you all smiles in no time. Sick of rose gold? How about brass (I thought this was gold, so maybe my color naming skills are off)? This turtle trinket dish is cute and doubles as a paperweight and a catchall for jewelry, keys, chapstick, peppermints, or whatever you need!!
Ok. So we got your home and your office all set with the chic organization, but what about life on the go? Whether you’re running away for the weekend or heading out to run errands, these goodies won’t slow you down and you’ll look fabulous too!
This longchamp pouchette is a perfect carryall to toss between purses. It measures 7.4″ x 4″ x 2.5″, so it’s perfect for all your lip products (even those of you who have 6 in your bag sometimes like me – no judgement), gum, eyeliner, hair tie, and whatever else you always need to take over the world. It’s water-resistant and available in 6 colors. Now you just have to pick the color! Actually – that could be difficult. Black? Eggplant? Olive? Red?
You know what you should include in that pouchette though? Your portable charger. If you don’t have a small portable phone charger yet… WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? I keep mine in the pouch it comes with along with my charging cord and the wall mount. It’s my travel charger, but I can also throw it in my purse. It’s available in colors besides pink – not to fret!
Next up? A totally sleek and stylish keychain. Did you go through the keychain phase in junior high? I did. And I think I won! I realize at this point in my life that doesn’t speak well of my actual coolness. But whatevs! Anyway, this saffiano key ring is perfect for men and women which basically makes it perfect for you. It’s also available in black, but you know I just love the camel brown color! And while we’re adding chic organization to your everyday life… if you throw your sunglasses into your bag and just hope for the best, I encourage you to get a sunglass case. It doesn’t have to be fancy, but this Cuyana Case certainly looks it! It’s also available in blush, but I thought we had too much pink already.
And this seems random, but portable steamers are our new favorite thing. Yes, I said our. My husband and I use one at home and when we’re traveling. It’s fast and easy (especially for the one of us who can’t iron to save her life). It’s also portable so you can throw it in your overnight bag or suitcase. No more wrinkly concerns!
