Getting ready to change over

I'm so excited about the changing of the season. Even though I do love summer with a passion, I do get tired of wearing the same thing all the time. Every year I wonder what on earth I wore the year before. I pull out my fall items and ponder what to keep and what to donate! I guess many of us have way too much in our closets and then think, "I have nothing to put on". It should not be: "sigh, sigh, I have nothing to wear and I look dumpy in that dress, and when I lose 10 pounds then I will wear those trousers," etc. It is really important to only have in your closet items that you LOVE. Your clothes should always fit, not be too big and not too small.

It is also important to update your closet often. That may sound expensive, but it doesn't have to be: spend the most money on versatile pieces to get the most out of your wardrobe. It's fun to be frivolous with the trends and go wild with a great pair of shoes or a statement handbag.

Some of the pieces that I cannot live without: leather jacket, flat black or brown boots, crisp off-white blouse, lots of scarves, and go-to jewelry.

I must be on the look out for dresses for work. I never seem to have enough, I don't know why because I do love the way dresses make getting out the door so easy. I also need blazers because they are so, so, so versatile and can be adapted to my various moods. I'm sure you know what I mean, some days I might be demure and sweet and some days I'm feeling edgy and a bit rock and roll.
