It’s that time… summer and winter wardrobe swap day! Perhaps I’m doing it slightly early as the sun is occasionally peeking from the clouds still, but after Fridays ‘I have nothing to wear meltdown’ whilst trying to get ready for a cinema visit I thought perhaps I will have something to wear if I do my swap.
Do you swap your wardrobe over?
Why on earth do I do a swap? Well, everything would fit in my wardrobe but I’m afraid it would be rather crammed in. I’m pretty sure I won’t want to wear shorts past September (incase your wondering I’m by Manchester in the UK!) Anyway, does anyone else do a summer and winter wardrobe swap?
Summer or winter fashion?
I LOVE summer clothes… I seem to buy more in this season than winter. This is probably due to holidays and wanting new outfits. I’m not exactly thrilled by winter clothes… people say ‘oh who’s ready for winter woolies, bonfire night, Christmas lights or some s*** like that… hmmm not me!! None the less I boxed off Saturday just gone to retrieve my winter attire from the loft.
Sort first, pack away later…
Before this I sorted through all things summer. Some items cross over into seasons but summery dresses, play suits, shorts, too many bikinis all were relegated to the not needed until next year pile.
The most annoying thing is sometimes I hold on to items that I wasn’t keen on just because I feel bad parting with something I’ve worn once. Away they go to briefly make a wardrobe appearance next summer only to be tossed in the charity bag when they don’t make the cut again. Ugh! Does anyone else do this?
My no buy!
Now in case you missed my previous two posts, I’m actually doing a no buy. Guys… let me tell you I’m wondering what the hell I was thinking?! I’m only a week in. Yep ONE WEEK. I told you all I love a challenge blah blah only to realise this is the biggest challenge of my LIFE lol.
So it’s time to fall in love with what I have! I’m hoping given the winter stuff has been stashed away for six months I might feel like I have a new wardrobe anyway! Hmmm, who am I kidding… I hope your routing for me guys! Ha ha!
So my summer and winter wardrobe swap is officially complete. I’ve got a a few things coming up over the winter months that I’m already pondering what I’m going to wear… a trip to Edinburgh with the girls in particular. Best get outfit planning instead of shopping!
Have you indulged in some autumn inspired shopping yet? What are you loving this season? Have a browse for me ha ha!
