A Closet Transition
March 16, 2012 § 2 Comments
We got our first taste of spring weather this weekend, and looking ahead at the forecast it seems as if we’re due for even more next week! After spending most of the last few weeks holed up in our apartment it’s so nice to be able to eat dinner outside, throw the windows open, and even dip into my spring wardrobe. As I start to transition out of heavy sweaters and big coats, there’s a couple things I like to do to “close out” the winter clothing season. I’m all about exfoliating and prepping! Here’s my plan:
Get rid of worn out shoes! These boots and Toms have seen better days. The boots themselves have been sent to the shoe repair man multiple times but still look really tired, and the Toms- they were heavily dragged through Asia last summer so I can’t image what’s on them. I also got new brown boots for Christmas and have a fresher pair of Toms, so it’s time for these guys to go!
At the end of each season I like to go through my closet and pull out what I didn’t where at all. It can be tough to let go of what feels like quality clothes, but there’s really no point in having it take up space if you’re never going to wear it. Plus, it makes room for new clothes!
Lastly, dry cleaning! The NYC subway is a dirty, dirty place, and these coats have spent a lot of time there in the last few months. I get my coats dry cleaned at the end of each season and then keep them in the plastic covers so they’re fresh and ready to go for next year. Same goes for sweaters. I’ll take them to be dry cleaned throughout the winter season, but I like to give them one final clean before I stow them away for next winter.
So there you have it. How do you transition to spring clothing? I’d love to hear! And have a wonderful weekend- hope there’s great weather wherever you are!
