It's Getting Cooler...Time to Switch Out the Clothes!

I'm not sure why, but despite September 22nd, the start of Autumn, it never truly seems like fall until it's time to get out those cozy warm sweaters, heavy denim skirts and fuzzy socks.

Personally, I love that time! The air is just starting to get crisp, the leaves are turning bright reds, oranges and yellows and fresh vegetables - and, of course, in Washington - apples are in abundance. It seems like the perfect time to dress in your snuggly turtle necks and long skirts with leggings underneath, don't you think?

Well, here around our home, that time is here! I am fully enjoying the feel of warm jammies under heaps of blankets during these cold (in the low 30's!) nights, and constantly wearing my new-from-the-thrift-store slippers throughout the day. I've switched out my clothes from my spring /summer wardrobe, to my fall/winter wardrobe, and thought you might like to have a peek to see how it went.

Here's how my drawers and closet looked before I started attacking them:

After taking those before pictures, I started to "switch". First, I dragged my box of "cold" clothes out of the clothing storage room off of the laundry room, which is conveniently a few doors down from my bedroom.

Then, I started to go through all my spring and summer clothes, seeing ones that could be kept out (like my white tee-shirts, which I like to layer sweaters over), clothes that needed to go into the Goodwill bin (that I don't like or are too small) and the clothes that can go into the now spring/summer box. After getting all those sorted out, I did the same with the fall and winter clothes.

Sorting and putting away:

Finally done!

Here's my Spring/Summer Box - not as full as when all my bulky winter clothes were in it!

We put up our "random" post!

Wow, that's a lot of work having to change your whole wardrobe every couple of seasons. It's still pretty hot over here, definitely not Fall weather yet. But even in the winter all we have to do is throw on a jacket if it gets cold, so we keep our spring/summer clothes. :)
