    I keep thinking I need to do wardrobe change soon but keep putting it off because it gets hot again. I love the change. It makes me feel almost like I went shopping.

    I’m a total fan of keeping off-season clothes out of sight–it DOES feel like shopping when you pull them out again! I’m also a huge fan of NOT letting your winter boots sag in the closet, though in a pinch, rolled-up newspapers will keep them standing high. They’ll also keep them moisture-free (ew, I know). Another tip? DO NOT wear your leather boots outside and walk through nasty, salty, snowy streets without cleaning your shoes thoroughly when you come back in. NEVER store you boots without giving them a wipe-down with a soft cloth and some leather cleaner!!! You’ll thank yourself later.
