I cannot believe that the first ‘official’ day of fall is tomorrow. It is extra hard to process because Dallas is still SO hot. That being said, I have started to pull out my sweaters, boots and jackets in hopes that MAYBE I will wake up one morning and it will be cool enough to wear them. I know it’s a long shot but a girl can dream.
Before the start of every season (especially before I start really shopping), I like to look at old photos of my outfits to be reminded of all the pretty pieces that I still have in my closet. When I used to organize closets, I would always tell my clients that with clothes if they are out of sight, then they are out of mind (at least for me). One of my favorite closet tricks that I do BEFORE I start getting shop happy, I ‘re-arrange’ my clothes. No, I don’ t move my dresses to a different section, I just mix them up. It allows me to ‘re-see’ everything I have, so I don’t waste money on (new) similar items.
As I look at the fall outfits that I have worn in my past, it makes me happy for a new season but also makes me realize what little I need to add to my closet!
