Sometimes your closet needs a reboot. And there is only one question: Would I buy this today? If not, get rid of it! THIS is the right way to clean your closet – you’re left with all of the great staples, classic pieces, and still current trendy items.
There are 4 things you should always have in your summer closet: an awesome handbag, quality stacked heels or flats
please no flip flops, except at the pool, a pair of classy shorts, and a goes-with-everything blouse. They are the perfect formula for a put together look. If you’re in the mood, you can throw on a chic hat to top off the look!
In my summer’s closet reboot, I realized that I needed a new pair of dressy shorts. My current selection just wasn’t cutting it. The key is to find a pair that isn’t too blah (e.g.long or baggy), or the exact opposite, short and tight with your bum falling out the bottom. I found the perfect pair at a very unexpected place (here).
And for a summer handbag and kicks update, I’ve fallen head over heels for all-things Elaine Turner. This handbag is ah-mazing, these stacked heels are to die for, and the hat is a playful whimsey!
So, refresh your closet and stop making it hard on yourself. It really is that easy!
