I don’t know about you, but as soon as the holidays end I seem to automatically get a severe case of spring fever. There’s just something about the months of January and February that are so…well, bleh. But, thankfully, with the help of fun tools like Pinterest and fashion blogs, I’ve learned to appreciate these last few months of winter as the perfect time to start planning my wardrobe for the next season…spring!
For me, planning a wardrobe for any season always means making good use of what I’ve already got. When I go shopping I really try to aim for pieces that:
a) can be worn in more than one season
b) will still be at least somewhat in style a year from now
c) can easily be mixed and matched with different styles of outfits
For example, take this simple cotton floral top of mine. Here are three different ways I’ve been able to wear the same shirt.
With dress shorts for an afternoon bridal shower:
Layered with a cardigan for a casual evening out:
With high-waisted, belted black skinnies for a night out of dancing:
That’s a 3-in-1 success if I ever saw it.
With this sort of wardrobe planning, there’s one other very important thing to keep in mind: keeping the clothes fresh and clean. And, speaking of a 3-in-1 plan, I’ve very much grown to rely on Tide Pods.
I’ll be honest – I usually dread doing laundry. But, living in New York where I’m constantly walking around in many interesting elements, I need to make sure to do it often. Thankfully Tide Pods have made the job so much easier – and more efficient – thanks to it being a powerful 3-in-1 detergent that cleans, brightens, and fights stains. Not to mention it really doesn’t get easier – all you have to do is pop it in the washing machine.
Tide Pods is the the only 3-chamber unit dose on the market, and just one removes more stains than 6 caps of the liquid bargain brand (based on stain removal performance of one pac of Tide Pods vs. 6 doses of the leading liquid bargain brand base variant in a standard top loading machine). So, when planning my wardrobe and making sure my clothes are ready to be mixed, matched, and worn out on the town…I’m definitely sticking to what works best. Pop in a whole new kind of clean with Tide Pods.
