Bringing the summer sun into my wardrobe!
Today’s so drizzly, it’s almost hard to remember what the sunshine looks like! Okay, I kid. We’ve been truly blessed with glorious weather and there is no doubt that the sunshine season is right on the horizon. Yay! There was a time when I preferred winter to summer but, my friends, those days have passed. I must be on some escalated aging plan, because I’m starting to realize why all those old people flock South… and I’m only in my thirties. *ahem*
Anyhow, until I get to the land of perennial sunshine, I shall truly relish these warmer, sunnier times. One way I love to do that? A serious wardrobe shift. What do I mean by that? Well, let me show you…
Here are a few of my very favorite winter clothing items. These are the workhorses of my wardrobe. They get some serious wear in the colder weather.
dark wash skinny jeans, ivory fleece pull-over, gray long-sleeved knit top, black 3/4 length sleeve top, long black straight skirt
Now check out the frequently worn pieces of my summer wardrobe:
white knee-length flippy gauze skirt, sea green gauzy top, bright pink long tee, yellow cotton ruffled tank, lt. turquoise & white floral sundress
See the difference? Summer is my favorite season for embracing vibrant color that puts a spring in my step. I never noticed just how dramatic that shift is until doing a closet inventory. And, let me tell you, that second picture makes me happier than the first.
How about you? If you were to compare your five favorite winter pieces to your five favorite summer pieces, would you see a difference? Or are you one of those ladies who’s consistent year-round? How do YOU bring the summer sun into your wardrobe?
