The last weeks of summer vacation were crazy-busy, but one thing I made time for (and I’m so glad I did), is to go through my wardrobe and remove my worn-out summer clothes.
It’s been a while since I’ve bought new clothes for summer, so most of mine are faded or no longer fit. I decided to clean them out now rather than to continue looking at them in my closet. I have a few remaining summer dresses and a few shirts and two shorts. Those will be enough as I transition into fall.
It will be summer weather a while longer here in Texas, so I’ll gradually start mixing in fall pieces. I’ll see what I need to add to my wardrobe, and by that time the fall clothes will all be on sale.
It’s so much easier to refresh a fall wardrobe by taking out what is old and worn out rather than starting with buying new. If I didn’t think I would be glad to see certain clothes next spring, they went in the donation bin or the rag pile.
I sorted through my daughter’s clothes too and took out the outgrown play clothes so that it would be easier for her to get dressed for school. One thing we try to do during the school year is choose her clothes for the next week on Sunday nights. It makes it so much easier for her to get ready on weekday mornings.
Getting my closet ready for fall, even though the weather isn’t quite here, makes me feel organized and ready.
