The Four Products I Use for Kitchen Organization

It’s been about two weeks since Johnny and I moved into our new Dallas apartment. Making sure the kitchen gets organized and ready to go is a huge priority for us. When you enter our apartment, the kitchen is one of the first spaces you see and we want it to be organized and clutter-free. Of course, there are days where it’s messy and items are strewn all over the island. That said, kitchen organization is very important to us so this was the first room we tackled as we unpacked. We are very blessed to have plenty of storage and space in this kitchen. My previous apartment in Norfolk had barely any storage space, so I understand. That said, we are still settling into the apartment, so I’m sure we’ll begin to accumulate some things as time passes. However, having a set guideline as far as kitchen organization goes will keep us on track and neat! This can be a daunting task, so I’m sharing the four products I use for kitchen organization.

The Tie-Waist Pants You Can Wear Anywhere

Work clothes don’t have to be boring. These red tie-waist pants are a great staple for the office but also for the weekend. I have these in yellow from last year and they are some of my favorite pair of pants. Of course, the fact they are currently on major sale for only $30 is a huge perk. These pants are a top-seller and are very popular with my readers and those of you who follow me on Instagram. I want to go into more detail about them and different ways you can style them. Plus, these pants come in so many different colors, so I want to make sure no matter which color you order, they flatter you.

A Casual Winter Outfit :: Turtleneck Poncho

For most of winter, I prefer to stay comfortable, casual and warm. Don’t get me wrong, I love to dress up, wear heels and a pretty dress. But when it’s cold my outfit has to be functional. Coming up with a casual winter outfit that doesn’t revolve around looking like a marshmallow can be difficult. As many of you know, layering is key. That’s one reason I love this casual winter outfit consisting of a turtleneck poncho. I’m wearing size XXS and there is still plenty of room to layer a cashmere or merino wool base layer underneath. You may even be able to sneak another sweater underneath, too! I love how this particular poncho drapes. It’s very flattering and forgiving. Plus, the speckled fabric gives this ultra cozy vibe while still being chic. The dolman sleeves still fit inside most coats and jackets, so you really can layer up if the temperatures are frigid!
