5 Things to do to Get Ready for Spring!

Happy spring, everyone! Today is the first day of spring, and I'm so excited for the next few months of gorgeous weather! Are you and your closet ready for spring? Here are a few tips to make sure you are! 






-Rotate your winter clothes to that back of your closet and put your warm weather clothes front and center, so you can easily see what you have and what you need to buy. Don't forget to check your shoe and handbags, too! 


-While you're doing that, check your winter clothes, too. This is a great time to get rid of the sweaters with holes in them and the mittens that have seen better days. Take anything to the tailor that needs to be mended, and send your heavy coats off to the cleaners. You'll be glad you did when that freak October snowstorm hits! It's never a bad idea to check the sale racks while you're shopping for spring clothes- you just might score the perfect replacement to your favorite black sweater. Take your boots and booties to the cobbler to be cleaned, have heel taps replaced and get them waterproofed while you're at it! 


-Check out blogs and magazines for spring inspiration. Set a budget for clothes, and make a list of things you need, and a separate list of things you want. Buy the basics first, and then use the rest of your budget to buy fun and trendy items like pastels and neons. Don't forget to shop for your lifestyle- if your idea of a perfect spring is playing sports outside, you probably don't need a closet full of little spring dresses


-Switch up your beauty routine! Make sure your skincare routine has tons of SPF coverage (You should be wearing SPF every day, but you really need to be wearing it when you're outside a lot, and yes, brunch on a patio counts!), pick up some blotting papers at the drugstore, and buy your favorite mascara in a waterproof formula. I think spring is the perfect time to try out a bright lip hue, too- this one is one of my favorites. 


-Treat yourself to a pedicure so your feet look pretty in those new sandals! 


What are your tips to get ready for warmer weather?

  1. Great tips! Guess it's weird being in Florida though because so little changes. I even wear a lot of my clothes year-round because it's so warm. So, I just find ways to avoid the afternoon rain this time of year. :)

  6. This is a very great and interesting post about the change of seasons I wouldn't have thought of all this. I feel a bit sad though because the colder whether is going to be coming relatively soon where I am.

  8. I am in the process of winter clothes (shoes and accessories) rotation as we speak. It's bittersweet in a way - I'll be sad not to see my boots until the fall. :P
