Warm weather is finally here–I suppose I can safely pack away my cold-weather clothes and take my summer stuff out of storage. My employer has been kind enough to grant an early start to the long weekend; I get to shut down at noon and I’m working at home until then. Which makes the whole process a lot easier, because I can start the laundry train rolling. Wash winter clothes, pack them away. Wash summer clothes, hang them or put them in drawers. Everything clean and accessible. Nice.
When I’m taking my summer items out of storage, I try everything on to make sure it still fits. Anything that doesn’t goes into the swap bag immediately. I also try to think about what I have that I could combine with this piece to make fun new outfits. Then there’s how I really look as opposed to how I want to look and what I can do to bridge the gap. I’m trying to be more adventurous. Some days I’m more successful than others. I’m also trying to take better care of myself. I’ve had a nasty upper respiratory infection since Monday, which has limited my ability to exercise, but I’ve been eating reasonably and sucking down ecchinacea and vitamins and I’m finally starting to feel better.
I’ve just figured out how to tie head scarves, so now I’m on a head scarf kick just in time for summer.
