The summer-winter wardrobe switch!
I unloaded all the summery clothes from my closet and sweater drawers, and packed them away into the boxes under the bed that held the winter clothes. I do this every fall and spring since, a) Dressing seasonally is very important to me, and b) I have way too much clothing. I get rid of stuff all the time! But I still have more than I can easily store. I did a big wardrobe assessment when we moved to the new house on September 1st, giving away tons of stuff, and am pretty happy with what I've ended up with, but I didn't realize until I did the summer-winter switch that I have way more summer clothes than winter!
Summer is my favorite time of year, so it figures that I love brightly colored cotton dresses and floral tops. Winter fashion is okay by me, too, but I hate being cold so I usually just stick to jeans, riding boots, and a cozy sweater over a tee. Thick, chunky sweaters. They take up a lot of room so I only have a few in neutral colors.
So far this fall we've had cold, clear nights followed by blue sky, cool sunny days. It's beautiful weather, but brrrr, I am cold!
Like I said, I'm all about dressing seasonally, so I try to coordinate with the fallen leaves on the ground and wear fall-ey plaids and earth tones, putting away many of my cheerful pinks and greens. I'm going to Florida for a cousin's wedding next week and will have to put together some cute outfits within the confines of fall fashion! I know, I'm a little crazy sometimes.
What about you? Have you switched out summer and winter clothes before? Is it time yet, where you live? And for you Florida residents, packing tips are always welcome =)
