One of the last things we did before Virginia was born was work on her closet. There was just a single rod in there before, and we knew we wanted to change it up to make it more functional for her. After a lot of research, I went with this Rubbermaid Closet Organizer, and it was simple to put up. The very next day, my water broke and Virginia was here! 🙂
Since her clothes are still tiny, I like having a double rod in there. The nice part is that down the road I can move these down to make more space as she grows. I used all the gray woven basket collection from Target to keep things organized on the shelves, and plastic bins from the Container Store for socks (not that she wears them), shoes (doesn’t wear those either), and hats. I use the top rack for decor, but as she accumulates more things I will add more storage bins up there. The hamper is also from The Container Store and I’m very pleased with it. I’m considering getting myself the same one! I hate fabric hampers and this plastic one is attractive, easy to wipe up, and contains any odors.
I like using uniform hangers for most everything and found a good deal on Buy Buy Baby for ones that fit baby’s clothes perfectly. I also use plastic dividers that say 3-6 month, etc. to keep the clothes organized by size.
This closet is deep so I used plastic command hooks to hold our diaper bags on the side. It makes it easy to grab them because we always know where they are.
I love my diaper bag from Barrington Gifts! I’ve been using it for 5 months and it still looks brand new. The key is that the outside is nylon and easy to wipe up.
I have so many outfits of Virginia’s that I love, but here are a few of my favorites that she can fit into right now.
Top Row: Gift from my dear IG friend Rox-Anne / Lilly Pulizter shift – got it in the sale but here is one similar / Shep Shirt c/o Vineyard Vines
Middlle Row: All of these are from H&M baby but I can’t find them online anymore, but this one is similar to the last one.
Bottom row: All Janie and Jack
I hope you enjoyed taking a peek into Virginia’s nursery!

Little girl clothes were totally meant to be shown off! You’ve done a great job with this closet. Rubbermaid is always a good choice.
I really like how you hung up your bags too. I may try that with my own closet. It seems like that would make it easier to grab.
I’ve had my eye on a Barrington bag for months! The bee pattern is just to die for.

Thank you so much! Yes I do the same thing in my closet to hang totes. It’s a lot easier to keep them organized that way. 🙂
I highly recommend them! It’s not a product I’ve only used for a short time- I’ve had the non-diaper bag version for over two years and it’s held up beautifully!

Her closet & clothes are all so cute, but I really love her Barrington tote-her little monogram looks perfect!

Awww she’s the most well dressed baby! Love the closet, I installed a very similar one in my own closet and just love that I can reconfigure when I bring in new seasonal items. Love the idea of hanging bags, I need to copy that one! xx Rox-Anne

Thank you so much! I love her new outfit from you. 🙂
I wish my personal closet was like that! It’s cool to reconfigure. And yes, the command hooks are amazing!
