You’ve made it through the winter. And you’re about to tackle a bit of closet cleaning: the spring things you’re deciding to pitch or keep.
I ditched more than I anticipated in hopes of swapping in a new batch of spring digs. I mean, why bother buying all of those shirts that are a hair too tight from the sale section so that when you sit down you’re embarrassed. You’re embarrassed because sitting shirts are now standing only shirts and your standing shirts are those ones you tried to tie around your waist for a catch of cool.
So, I’m skipping the floral shirt train for the moment and focusing on the footwear category for a kick.
My shoe collection has always been pretty weak, particular with the warmer months. I have far too many pairs of Birkenstocks and Chacos from undergrad that have carried themselves into my mid-20s. It’s unclear if this pair of kimono print Soludos ($42) establishes an accurate level of maturity, but they seemed to make me happy enough today. Welcome to the family, Soludos. You’ll set nicely next to the Birks, Chacs and appropriately ignored flip-flops.
Oh! And yeah, I already dragged out my spring clothes from the boxes and closets and bottom drawers that I never open. Cleaned ‘em all out and sent the tributes off to Beacon’s Closet. A great feeling of productivity and a little cleanse.
Do you have a ritual of sorts when it comes to the seasons changing and closets rotating?
