Spring has officially been here for over a week now and I’m very excited spring has sprung! Even though winter hasn’t been terribly bad, it’s still cold, snow and frozen everything. If you live in Wisconsin or some other northern state, you know that even though the calendar says spring, it’s not time to break out the sandals yet. It’s time to put the boots to the back of the closet (not packed away yet) and start thinking about your spring/summer wardrobe and what you need to do to get it ready to wear on the first possible day.
Spring wardrobe planning is exciting! You get to think about leaving the house without a heavy winter coat on. And boots. And gloves. And a scarf. And earmuffs. And possibly a hat. You get to think about light, airy, warm weather fabrics and garments. And sandals. Don’t forget the sandals. I’m a sandal fanatic and start wearing them usually before it’s publicly acceptable. We only have about 4 months here to wear sandals so I need to make the most of it!!
Think about your spring/summer wardrobe. Knee jerk reaction-does it make you happy? Do you get excited thinking about all of the fun, flattering things you get to wear hopefully soon? Or do you yawn or even get a bit depressed? If you get excited and happy, awesome! You just need to do a quick once over to make sure everything is clean and in good shape with no holes or other issues. If you are bored or even a bit sad, changes need to be made. Why not be happy about a part of your life that is so easily fixed (really)?
If you get overwhelmed just thinking about making wardrobe changes, give me a call or email me and we’ll get it done together. It will be easy and fun. Seriously. http://www.impeccableimagellc.com/contact-us/
If you don’t mind making the changes yourself, first get everything out and take a really good look at it. Does it still fit? If not and you don’t think it ever will, donate it. Stop beating yourself up. The size you currently are is great and you can look awesome at any size. Second is to be honest with yourself and determine if anything is out of style. If it is, donate it. Wearing clothes that are out of style make you look older and not modern. Who wants that?
Third, with what’s left, are there things that are worn, tired, need repairs, etc.? If so, toss them. Don’t donate things that other people need to fix. That’s not fair to them. If you are TRULY, REALLY going to repair the garments that need to be repaired within 1 week, put them to the side and set up the time on your calendar to do so. If you haven’t done it within the week, toss them. Yes, it’s somewhat brutal but we both know if you don’t do it now, it won’t get done and they’ll just sit in your closet taking up space that you can use for new, fun things to wear.
Once you’ve removed everything that shouldn’t be there, make a list of the holes you need to fill. What do you need for a well rounded, easy to wear and live with wardrobe? Once the list is made, schedule a shopping trip to get everything you need.
Are you overwhelmed again or just hate shopping? Contact me and we’ll get you ready for spring easily and with lots of laughter. http://www.impeccableimagellc.com/contact-us/
