Take a Peek Inside Carissa Alvarado's Manhattan Beach Closet

Moving is a part of life, and as everyone who's done it at least once can attest, certain areas of the process can start to feel overwhelming quickly. That's especially true when it comes to moving your closet. But that wasn't the case for fashion blogger and musician Carissa Alvarado, who saw her recent move as an opportunity to get off to a running start on transitioning her wardrobe from summer to fall by simply keying in on her most-wanted pieces during the unpacking process. (Closet MVPs included a beloved slip dress, mules, and lots of PANDORA Jewelry.) We saw her closet strategy in action when we toured her new Manhattan Beach home and learned that she converted an entire second-level bedroom into a walk-in (and then some) closet.

My favorite tip for staying organized is to always have a clothing rack handy; that way I can see all my favorite pieces right in front of me.

When it comes to getting my closet ready for a new season, thinking transitionally is key.

My most-wanted trends right now? Definitely fringe, velvet, denim, and mixed metals.
