Erin Nadler of Better Styled can’t get enough of my closet! The personal stylist came back to rummage through my closets once again – this time, to help me scale down my Fall wardrobe.

What's in Style? Fall Essentials with Better Styled

Erin visited earlier this year for a Toronto Star piece on Capsule Wardrobe for Spring Summer. My closets were full to the rim with clothing that either didn’t work with my style, didn’t fit properly, or were simply outdated. I didn’t realize how freeing it would be to ditch the pieces that no longer worked, and donate them.

So how thrilled was I to have Erin return to tackle my Fall wardrobe! She helped me downsize my overflowing closets, with advice on stylish outfits to compliment my lifestyle. Watch her video on her best Fall Essentials:

I’ll post some fabulous outfit ideas in another post. But in the meantime, here are some pieces that made it to my “new” closet.

After our visit, I felt as if it was just the beginning to feeling “lighter” – I was on a mission to tackle other areas of my home. It felt great to de-clutter my closet, and organizing my closet to make it easier to put outfits together.
