A Disorganized Hoarder

I was featured on Linda's blog, Trendy Teal yesterday since it was her first day of college!!! Check out one of my back to school looks featured on her blog here.

This outfit is perfect because it's transitionary. While the neons and espadrille wedges keep us hanging on to summer, the darker colors transition into fall.
On a non-fashion related note...I have a little characteristic about myself (that hopefully some of you have, too)! I should start by saying that I am a very disorganized person. As in I like to keep all of my things scattered on my floor in my room. Stuff is much easier to find that way, right?? Anyways, at the beginning of every school year, I buy a gazillion binders and color code them into sections. I count out equal number pens and pencils and put them in a shiny new pencil case. I even organize my locker all special into sections. And on the first day, my handwriting is miraculously neat--and I copy down the teacher word for word. In my colorful (NEAT) binders, of course. Let me tell you, that does not last long. By the second or third week, I've got papers strewn in my locker. Empty water bottles stuck in every nook and cranny. Binders are long forgotten. And (*cringe*) sometimes food and candy wrappers. Okay, not sometimes...always. I'm basically a disorganized hoarder. The thing is, I like organization. I really do. And the fact that I try at the beginning of the year proves it! But I just can't keep it up. I guess using binders and keeping a locker clean and a room clean and a closet organized and my laundry all in one place and...wait, let's get back on track. 

What I'm trying to say is, it's just too much effort to stay organized. I'm always hurrying from one place to the next. So why does everything need to be organized? This year, I've finally learned my lesson. I am not buying binders...gasp. And I'm sharing a locker with my most organized friend (who will kick me out if I'm messy)!!! So I'm starting on the right foot this year. Let's see how long I'll last! :)

So, there you have my back to school story! Is anyone else messy and disorganized like me? But, if you had the time, would be organized? Tell me I'm not alone! 
All kidding aside, my outfits are organized! I love to color coordinate in my outfits and wear corresponding accessories. 
Do you have any quirky characteristics ?


  1. Love you outfit! I have to say, I have OCD and am thus a very organized perfectionist. When things get out of order, I kind of have to fix them. My locker is virtually spotless all year. :) I guess we're all different. I mean, I have waaay too many clothes and somehow always stay semi-organized, haha.

  10. The small pops of color from the belt shoes and bracelets keep the outfit from looking too serious.
    Its always hard to keep things organize but if you work on it you will find a way that works for you.
