(Psssst…t-minus 2 days til I share my fall capsule wardrobe!)
I was wondering how your transition from season to season looks? Do you literally switch everything over in one day or do you let pieces trickle in and out over time, depending on the weather?
Awesome question! Here’s what my transition really looks like:
1. I don’t do a hard cut. Meaning, I take my time with the transition. As one reader put it — “The weather doesn’t switch in one day. Why should my wardrobe?”
2. About two weeks before the fall season starts, I start moving my fall clothes into my closet. From that point on, I start a slow transition, moving fall pieces in + summer pieces out. Then about a week or two after the fall season starts, the transition is complete and my closet is all fall.
3. But I always like to keep a minimal number of clothes hanging in my closet — I function better that way because I feel more creative when I’m working with limited options and little to no visual clutter. And for some strange subconscious reason, I tend to wear summer pieces with summer pieces and fall pieces with fall pieces — I don’t mix the two very often. Just a preference.
Remember this is all about creative problem-solving + embracing your style, your way.
