Tomorrow is the first day of fall! In theory, this should mean no more triple digit degree days and scorching hot sun, but we’ll see how Texas weather feels. I am ready for cooler days though so I have decided to start switching out my closet for fall clothes.
Choose what stays — My work clothes pretty much stay the same. It’s just the thickness of the sweaters or jackets that change. I can pair a tank top even in the winter with a coat or thick blazer. So the business part of my closet usually stays the same. I also try to keep any neutrals for my casual days that can be layered.
Only keep items that fit — I have articles of clothing that were purchased because of a deal I couldn’t pass up on final sale that are too baggy and some that are way too tight. I also have free shirts I received at events that always seem to be way too large but are useful when I’m doing something that I know I’ll get dirty, like gardening. Unfortunately all these things take up a lot of room in my closet so it’s time to throw them out! I’m going to keep things that flatter me and are comfortable so that I know I’ll wear them again.
Clean & store what’s not in season — I have plenty of shorts and tanks that I plan on keeping but not wearing for the next couple months. First I’ll clean them before putting them in a box so that I can make room for cardigans and coats.
Of course, much of the cleaning process depends person-to-person. What are some things you do to change out your closet for the new season?
