We’ve officially been in our new house for a week now and I hadn’t unpacked a single box or bin since the day we moved… until last night. Like most people, I didn’t realize how much stuff I had until we moved. But one thing I am loooving is being able to see all of my clothes in one closet again. Our previous living space was a small basement with no walk-in closets. Our new closet isn’t anything you’d see on Pinterest, but it’s big enough to walk in and see all of my clothes! I feel like I just won a shopping spree. I pulled this plaid dress out that I haven’t worn since the summer and thought, “there has to be some way I can wear this right now.” I mean, it is plaid season.

My tips for wearing your spring or summer clothes in the fall/winter?

Look for ways to pair them with dark neutrals like navy, gray or leopard, and jewel tones, like my violet (aka, maroon) Hunter Boots and lipstick. I also thought layering on a cozy pullover sweater, rather than a jean jacket or cardi, made the outfit come together really well for the colder weather. Would you have guessed I bought this dress last spring?

What items from your spring/summer wardrobe are you wearing this season?

    • Thank you! It’s seriously the best feeling to give old clothes a second chance. If they don’t work, give them away. But if they do, you have a new outfit you didn’t have to pay for. Yay! Thanks for commenting, Maddy! 🙂
