Winter is around the snowy corner so let’s get your closet “cold weather ready” ASAP! When temperatures go down and gift giving holidays approach, our souls crave new and exciting sensations. These next few months are filled with warm comforting foods, magical lights, sparkles, songs, and gift wrap. We yearn for warm cocoa and cinnamon hugs and most of all NEW CLOTHES!
We can’t emphasize enough how important it is that you keep a current and organized wardrobe. It makes your daily hustle and bustle run all the more smoothly. Take a small amount of time just before every season to sort through your wardrobe, toss, replace, buy and re-categorize. This doesn’t mean you have to spend heavily every season, it just means you should purchase a few key pieces and re-invent your older stuff. Once you’re done you’ll be so excited to get the season going!
