HAPPY #FASHIONWEDESDAY! Yesterday I hung out with the adorable ladies at the St. Louis Michael Kors store getting a sneak peek at their new arrivals and trying out some of their adorable spring dresses. Some of my very favs are pictured here (and linked – don’t worry) in this post!! SPEAKING OF WHICH: Today’s post is gonna be a good one – so buckle up. I’m about to change your life and your closet forever. There is a psychological reason we should be changing our closets to represent the correct season – not just because it helps keep your closet organized. Let’s do this.
I mean. This was so obvious I felt like it just had to come first. I’ve only said it twice now. BUT this is still important. Think about it: when you have an entire closet full of clothes – it can be difficult to find the pieces you want, especially when you are digging through fall sweaters to find spring blouses and vice versa. The simplest way to do this is to just get rid of your out of season clothes. Put them in a bin (fold them nicely, please. You do NOT want 3 months worth of wrinkles to sort through) and tuck them in a closet or underneath your bed. Now, you can easily sort through your closet and it’s only seasonally appropriate clothing you have to sort through. Do the same thing with your out of season shoes.
I don’t know about you but I get VERY tired of looking at the same clothes every day, and sorting through the same tops and the same sweaters trying to find something to wear. It would be so easy if I could just buy new stuff all the time and never wear the same thing twice but my wallet says plz no. So, since I’m forced to live like a peasant, one way I’ve found that helps me feel better about my closet is to hide my clothes when they’re out of season. That way, I don’t have to look at them for almost 9 months and by the time I pull them out again, I have forgotten what they look like so it’s almost like going shopping in my own closet! #winnerwinner
It just makes more sense to store it out of sight. Do you really need those sweaters in 98 degrees? Nope. Do you really want your open toed heels when it’s snowing outside or a bathing suit in -20? Nope, and nope. Cut the clutter and organize your clothes by season. Out-of-seasoners get the boot. I like to take this time purge my closet as well. Sometimes we like to think we actually wear stuff when we just don’t. We like to see it take up space in our closet because we feel better with a full closet than an empty closet. But think of it this way: what good is a full closet when you only wear 3-4 items in it? Give the stuff away that you don’t wear or doesn’t fit and make room for the new and improved you.
NOTE: I do want to make a note that you SHOULD be keeping layering pieces all year round somewhere accessible. Be sure you keep some cardigans, jean jackets, and light sweaters just in case you need them – ESPECIALLY in the spring time. I want to say this simple from experience. Sometimes you switch your wardrobe over to spring from winter, and it’s like 65 and sunny and beautiful on the day that you do it, and then two days later it snows. So. Keep a jacket or something out so you don’t freeze to death. Learn from my mistakes.
PIN THIS FOR LATER:
I hope this helps you make the MOST out of your closet. For reference, here is the link to the clear bins I use to store my out-of-season clothing and I personally just slide them right underneath my bed!! It makes it so season to pull out when I need to switch seasons.
Let me know what you do to keep your closet fresh for each new season in the comments below!
