Brrr....kinda chilly here in NYC today. So much for it almost being April.
I had laundry on my list of "things-to-do", so with the weather and my task in mind I kept it casual. I actually used today as an opportunity to get in one last Fall-ish outfit before I switch out my closet's wardrobe.
(for those not living in small cramped spaces, A.K.A. NYC, you may not be familiar with the biannual practice of "rotating the closet". There's so little space that the opposite season's wardrobe has to be packed away in suitcases, boxes, etc and hid in any space it will fit as there's hardly any closet space whatsoever--and yes there's a tendancy for it to cramp your style).
I honestly don't know where I was going with this outfit; I put on jeans and a t-shirt as is my usual for laundry day. But then I realized it was cold outside, so I reached for my boyfriend's vintage flannel-he never wears it so why not let me?
And I knew I wanted to wear one of my bomber jackets-because I love to wear them! They are soooo perfectly matched to my personality. They take any outfit I wear and make it suitable for me, completely regardless of whatever I wear beneath.
So I paired it all up, and noticed I looked a bit like a lumberjack. YIKES!
Even though it was just laundry day, I certainly was not down with the clothing overwhelming me with its bulky size.
On with the belt!
Today is probably the last day you'll see me in such a fall-ish outfit, for a while at least. I'm looking forward to the warmer temps, the sunshine, and the dog days of summer
(did you get that? When do I like the dog days of summer?? I'm such an autumn lover, I can't believe I just said I'm ready for summer)
I'm not saying I'll do away with all my fall/winter items just yet, but I will most definitely be incorporating more and more spring-esque pieces into the mix.
So I think Tuesday (because I won't be working-its Passover! Wooo, no work, and I'm not Jewish--FREE DAY OFF FOR ME!)
I will rotate my wardrobe, dig out the old spring/summer and put away the fall/winter.
(which means, I'll have a bajillion items to rid my life of--which leads me to a little surprise venture I'll be telling you all about in the near future)
Chilly weather be damned, it's almost freakin April...that's why I'm gonna rotate the closet.
So a big fat adios to Winter--HELLO SPRING/SUMMER!
