Closet Space

Labor day weekend is always bittersweet. It's the end of another summer that as kids used to seem endless and the beginning of another season favorite, fall. This is the perfect time to reorganize closet space to make room for bulky knits, chords and capes.

Depending on the space you have to work with determines what you need to store away until next spring/summer. However, some of your warmer season pieces can stick around through fall with a few additions and updates.

Denim shorts: We adore them and hate to see them packed away. We like to transition ours with tights and booties.

Light and flowy fabrics, like chiffon or lace: These are often fabrics that people think they can only wear in summer and spring months. We add fall items like leather jackets, boots and rougher pieces that distract from the delicateness of the fabric.

Open-toed shoes: We say these should stay in your rotation all year. We love to pair ours with trouser or frilly socks and tights this time of year.

Dresses-  There's nothing a little layering won't fix.  Add a leather jacket to your closet, a great blazer, and some tall socks or tights. Play around with patterns and colors for bolder looks.
