… Okay, maybe not. It’s only March and I’m sure we’ll have plenty of drab, dreary weather before September rolls around. But after such a glorious weekend and the promise of more where that came from this week, I decided it was high time to perform The Great Wardrobe Switchover.
The Great Wardrobe Switchover is a highly technical process involving the unpacking of summer clothes from storage (under the bed, in my case). If you’d visited me at 6pm yesterday, you’d have found me surrounded by piles of clothes – winter woollens teetering perilously on the edge of the bed, summer dresses strewn across the floor – it was a messy business. But a couple of hours and some serious folding later and I’d packed up my heavy-duty winter stuff and hung up my spring/summer wardrobe. And that means I have lots of pretty vintage dresses to wear! Hooray!
Switching your clothes between seasons is a great way to breathe new life into your wardrobe without spending any money. I always forget about something – whether it’s the cute wedges I bought in the end of season sale or the vintage dress I picked up in January. I was so excited to get dressed this morning (I know, loser) because it felt like a whole new wardrobe was waiting for me.
This dress is the one I bought in January – when I heard I’d be doing a photo shoot with InStyle, I rushed out and bought an entire charity shop (hey, a girl needs options) and this was one of my finds. It’s a size 18 and comes down to my calves but with some clever belting there’s no need for alterations. I love the bold floral print – perfect for a fine (almost) summer day!
Do you change your wardrobe each season? When will you be performing The Great Wardrobe Switchover?
