Closet Room: The Photo Session

See full outfit here: Top: Express | Bracelet: JCrew (option) | Bottoms: American Eagle (option)

I'll keep the text super short since this will be really photo heavy, but I mentioned last week in my post that I had my closet room professionally photographed! I got the photos late last week, and I could not be more pleased with them! I used Christine Foehrkolb Photography, a local photographer who literally lives about 5 minutes from my house. And! She's good friends with Carrie and Stacy from CS Gems, so it's nice to keep it all in the family, so to speak! Christine took a ton of amazing photos for me to choose from. It was so hard to narrow it down for this post! I hope you'll grab your coffee and enjoy this ride with me!

Chair and Ottoman: Value City | Side table and lamp: Target | Rug: Amazon | Chandelier: Kohl's (similar) | Bookshelves: Ikea (half height bookcase, full height book case, doors (option) | Curtains: Target (similar) | Armoire: JCPenny (option) | Hanging jewelry organizer: Bed Bath and Beyond (similar) | Step stool: Amazon (similar)

I wasn't sure if she was going to have me pose inside my room, but I made sure I was dressed for it, just in case! I'm glad that she did, because of all the photos and such that I have of my room, I really didn't have any great ones of me in the space. What a great record of my happy place! Thanks for sticking with me on this!

  1. Your closet is heaven! These pics are gorgeous! I wouldn't mind camping out in there with all your treasures. :)


  2. What a gorgeous room! Love the shoe space! And of course, love all the pictures Christine!
    Carrie and Stacy

  3. So jealous of your wardrobe room it looks incredible! Even before baby's room was a nursery and it was my wardrobe space it never looks as well laid out and pretty as this! :)

    I was in awe for so many things, but I have to say that Marc by Marc Jacobs Percy caught my eye - what a lovely purple! IS it a good bag to use?

    Away From The Blue

    1. I find that it's a really great size! It deceivingly holds a lot! I could carry my DSLR camera plus my necessities! I've heard complaints about it being heavy, but I think it's typically for a MBMJ bag, and I just love it!

  4. I have a major case of closet envy right now. Your closet is amazing and the photos are amazing. You look so cute in that first picture! ~Cynthia

  5. You have an AMAZING closet! I just joined your link up for the first time and am following you on Bloglovin, Twitter, and Instagram! I will definitely be linking up each week! Happy Monday!

  6. Holy guacamole your closet is a dream straight out of SATC - gorgeous images indeed!!!


  7. I am loving all of the pics of your closet! You seriously have my dream closet! It's so organized and beautiful! It deserves to be in a magazine!

  8. Your closet is a dream, when I get a house and have a bigger closet I'm flying you to Florida to help me lol. Off to pin away.


  9. Ahhhh...this is soooo amazing!! I love that you even have natural light in your closet room with that giant window. The pictures turned out so beautifully and there's just so. much. eye. candy here!! Love it!

  13. What an awesome space! I love it more and more every time I see it! Such a great way to make a closet work for you -- especially if a house you love doesn't have the space already built in!

    1. Sadly the master bedroom closet is plenty big enough for a normal person. But. Yeah. Clearly I'm not normal! :)

  14. I am so jealous of this…this closet room is amazing! You have such an amazing taste for style and for interior design!
    BTW I finally went to Altar'd State and I LOVE it…the store is amazing and I really like the unique finds and design!

    1. Oh yay! Thanks so much for reporting back about that! So glad you like it! I need to go back!!

  15. Okay your closet is ahhhmazing! So glad you shared it.

    Happy Monday babe!

  19. How cute is this! You have a GREAT closet!

  20. Oh my word...I can't even!!! No wonder you always look so adorable!!!

  21. Everytime I see your closet room I like it even more Carylee. These pics are awesome, and I love the brightness, and cheerfulness in the room. The window and the red chair so lovely! Btw you notice I am not even mentioning those heels, and bags yet right? Those are INSANE!!! Seriously for a shoe crazy person like me I want to dive right in there and try every pair LOL. Have a great week dear. XOXO, Elif

  22. WOOOOOAH! Having SERIOUS closet envy right now!!! <3


  23. Oh my goodness, your closet is spectacular! I love it! What a classy, practical space.


  24. Wow love your closet - so many goodies! I especially love the pic of your cross body bags hanging in front of your scarves.

  25. OH EM GEE!!! Your closet is officially the love of my life

  26. Too cool! What a gorgeous closet, my my! <3

  27. When I have my own hose, I want a room like this. Goals!!

  28. Just WOW! I don't know if you mentioned before, but does your husband have his own closet? My husband and I share a pretty large closet but I would love to kick him out and have my own LOL! You've given me some really great ideas.

    1. Ha! Yes, he is probably the only husband who actually has rights to the entire master bedroom closet! And sadly - it's a pretty generous sized walk in closet, and he has it filled to the brim. There's no way we both would have survived in there! And still stayed married! :)

  29. Okay Caryl, I need for you to hop on a plane stat and come redesign my walk in! When I say that your closet is fit for HGTV, I am not exagerrating here girl! I love the display cases you chose for your shoes..simply amazing! I would spend hours in there just staring!


  30. Wow! What a great closet and so well organized. I love the red chair too. I'm going to steal the way you hang your pants - love how they are double folded and short to hang so you gain more room. If my closet looked like that I don't think I would leave it!
    Thank you for hosting your link up! Come on over an link up your shoe photos of your closet on Style Nudge Shoe and Tell.


  31. There's just one word to describe your closet, and that is HEAVEN!! Omg, girl.. Super jealous! So glad you did this shoot and you look adorable!!

    Wishing you a great week!

  33. I am so inspired by your closet! I'll be moving soon and one of my deal breakers for our new place is a closet room. I am having so much fun pinning closet room inspiration!

  34. These photos are gorgeous! I aspire to have a closet/dressing room like this someday! =)


    I hope you are having a great week so far!


  35. Your closet room is freaking awwwweeeesooome! I like how it's more like a closet that is accessible rather than a display room. Lol... lucky you!
