Hi guys! Finally sharing all the details and pictures of our fabulous closets done by California Closets. If you follow me on Instagram, you know my Cloffice (closet + office) and my closet are my sanctuary! When we were building our new home, all I cared about was getting each of the spaces done properly.
Colby and I started researching closet companies months ahead of moving in and everything we read online and heard from friends, lead us to California Closets. We wanted each of our closets and my Cloffice to be done to the nines, to feel luxe and to give us the most organization as possible.
Setting up a meeting and getting the process started was so simple and easy! We had a few initial email conversations with Missy Almester, who works locally here in Orange County, and she was so helpful, knowledgeable and QUICK (which we both love). If we had a question or anything, she would reply back immediately and never made us feel annoying. 10/10 for customer service!
We worked with her over email on our basic wants and needs and then met with her at the showroom (which was so fun!!) to go over it all in person. The showroom has tons of examples for you to see, which is so helpful. Missy had a whole presentation set up for us and walked us through each space thoroughly. We were able to see our future closets large on a big screen and able to pick out finishes and options right there. We had given her a budget during initial conversations and she was so good about helping us stay within that number.
After that one in person meeting, we continued the process via email and it was seriously just so easy. We set up the install date and when the team came to do it all, they were so professional and amazing!
Quick notes about some things we chose and love! First, in each of our closets we chose to get drawers for all our personal items. We got dividers in our sock drawers and underwear drawers that are so so helpful! I love that I can keep my athletic socks separate from my cozy ones. We also both got laundry hampers, which are honestly life changing. I love that they are discreet and that we each have our own. It’s a dream not having a laundry basket taking up space (and being an eye sore). We are both obsessed with our shoe walls! I did one in each of my spaces and it makes keeping shoes organized so easy.
Now onto the details of my Cloffice. Can we just have a moment for how great it turned out?! I wanted a few shelves for my bags to sit on and I love the way they turned out. It’s so nice to be able to see them all and that I don’t have to squish them all into a tiny area (like I use to). I also wanted a few shelves for the current shoes I am loving/styling and again, I love the way it turned it. Simple, clean and so useable. The last thing I really wanted was a cabinet with doors where I could store all my belts and archive bags that I am not using, but want to keep special. We added glass doors and it’s so plush! I keep my old Celine bags in there and I feel like they are getting the treatment and display they deserve!
For me, my Cloffice is my creative haven, so I love that I now have the proper space and organization. It really is a dream and I feel so lucky to have worked with California Closets on this. Both Colby and I love our personal closets so much- they are plush, spacious and just make it so we stay so so much more organized. If you are building a home, re-doing your home or updating your space, I highly recommend using California Closets! You won’t regret it. If you have any specific questions, do not hesitate to email me.
As you guys know, we just moved into our new house a few months ago and one of the first things we did was change out all our bedding. After doing a bunch of research online, I decided on Tuft & Needle as their online reviews were amazing and they sell everything you need to create a dreamy bed.
In our last home, we were all about the darker tones and heavier looking pillows, but with our new house being super close to the beach, we decided to go fully light and airy. We picked out the Percale Sheet set and coordinating shams and pillowcases in the cloud color and I love them! They are soft, comfy and just a refreshing change from what we used to have.
When I was looking around on their site, I noticed they carry duvets and pillows too! We have had our old duvet and pillows for far too many years, so I figured why not order those as well. I chose the down alternative duvet insert in the lightweight option and the down alternative pillows. Both Colby and I have allergies, so I love that they offer these! We have been loving both. They are so plush, like 5 star hotel status. Plus, it’s so refreshing knowing that they are both so new and fresh for our new space.
The last thing I randomly picked out from them that we are now obsessed with is a white noise machine! Have you ever slept with one? It was impluse decision, but we both are addicted to it now as it really helps create a serene sleeping space. It’s super small, which I love because it doesn’t take up much space and you can take it with you when you travel if you want. I feel like it fits in with our bedroom vibe perfectly.
I cannot recommend Tuft & Needle enough! From the ease of the online ordering, to the quality of their products, I am so happy with it all. One less thing to have to worry over with our big move!
Linking everything I ordered from them below.

Nordy’s anniversary sale starts soon (the one where they mark down new things + the prices go back up after the sale is over), so I just spent a little time online shopping around. I think it’s a great time to grab basics you know you will wear or to splurge on those Paige/Rag + Bone jeans that you don’t want to buy full price. I picked out some faves and to be honest, didn’t find as much as I have in previous years, but I plan to pop in store one day this week to see if I find any other gems. I will be sure to share if I do! But here are my preliminary finds.
Just some basics, a few cozy coats and also a few pairs of sunnies! Things I think I will actually wear and appreciate getting at a discount. Happy Shopping!
Summer is creeping up on us, which means it’s tie to start shopping for all the fun warm temp things! Probably my favorite season just because I love a good mini and love not having to wear layers! I have been sharing some fun dresses over on my Instagram, but am still searching around for all the tops, skirts, sunnies, head scarves…all the fab things!
Here are some of my most recent outfits that are 100% Summer ready.
And here are all those outfits and the things I am currently shopping!
Countdown is ON! Take me on a vacay….happy shopping xx, Caro
