H-E-L-L-O, Spring! I love you.
We live at nearly 6000 feet above sea level in a small mountain town and although spring is well underway in some parts of the country we are a little behind due to our high altitude. One of my favorite things this time of year is the flowering trees and early spring blooms of tulips and daffodils. In the spirit of saying “so-long” to winter I have begun packing away sweaters and heavier coats and just this week I began organizing my spring wardrobe. At this stage in my life I am very interested in collecting classic pieces of clothing that will last for several years if not longer. This allows me to build a foundation of staples and purchase a few new items each season to add to what I already have.
I rotate clothes in and out of my closet a couple of times a year as a means of organizing and purging while rediscovering items that were tucked away in another closet or stored for the last 6 months. Even if your closet is large enough to house your entire year of clothing, coats and all, it is still a great idea to organize your closet for the current season to make it easier to see what have and to put your look together more easily.
Spring wardrobe organization:
1. Pull heavier weight sweaters out of the closet and get them to the dry cleaner before storing
2. Pack away cold weather boots that take up space and clutter up the closet
3. Donate items that have not been worn for a of couple seasons
4. Pull out warm weather attire, wash or dry clean as needed
5. Look at shoes from last season, what needs to be replaced?
*Afternoon breezes or chilly evenings may require that you leave some light weight sweaters and
jackets in your closet in order to layer.
My favorite warm weather staples that seem to live in my closet year after year are:
1. Light weight scarves
2. Light colored and light weight blouses or T’s
3. White linen blazer, indigo blue “boyfriend” blazer
4. My favorite white jeans
5. Linen slacks
6. Regular dark denim and cropped denim jeans
7. Light colored handbags
8. Sandals, wedges, flip flops
9. Summer maxi dresses, regular dresses, skirts
10.Swimwear, pool side attire (although this is on standby for another month!)
Of the above list I wanted to point you to a few of my favorites that make it easy to create a fun and effortless look. Click on the photos and it will link you to the product.
