How To Prep Your Wardrobe For Spring During Winter
As we approach the end of one season, you have to start thinking about the coming season and prepping your wardrobe for it. It can definitely be a little confusing as to what to wear now, what clothes you should pack away to what you should be shopping for. But one thing is for sure, a new season doesn’t mean you have spend a ton of money on a new wardrobe. You actually don’t need to spend as much as you think you need to.
Taking Inventory Of Your Wardrobe
You have a closet full of clothes but never have anything to wear, right? Truth is, you have a lot more outfit options than you think, you’re just lacking the right pieces to bring it all together so you can mix and match your items over and over to create new outfits.
The 24 wardrobe basics I cover in this eBook, are the key pieces that’ll allow you to create different outfits around the same pieces, transition your clothes through different seasons and allow you to mix and match everything you have to create different outfits around your clothes. Your wardrobe basics are year-round pieces making it easier for you to spend less money on clothes and allow you to create more outfits with the clothes in your closet.
Going into a new season, you’ll probably want to add in a few new pieces and that’s totally normal and expected. The difference this time is anytime you spend money on a new item, you’ll already have plenty of outfit options for your new pieces already with your wardrobe basics. This will help you avoid shopping for specific pieces, complete outfits and creating a wardrobe filled with random pieces or one-time wears.
To ensure that every item you add into your wardrobe is something you’ll actually wear and not a result of an impulsive purchase, go back to the three-step process covered in Building A Wardrobe: The Basics eBook that helps you pinpoint the different styles that your wardrobe needs and will work for your day-to-day. No need to be splurging on pieces just because you like them but probably will never wear, right? These three steps will teach you how to be more strategic with how you’re spending your money and more intentional with what you’re adding into your wardrobe - no more one-time wears or struggling to style your clothes!
Once you have an idea on the spring items you’d like to add into your wardrobe it’s time to look at your winter pieces.

There is no immediate need to buy all things spring at the end of winter because it’s not like the weather changes instantly. Keep your eyes on those spring items - buy if you want to OR adapt my pin and stalk method to save yourself even more money.
Pin and Stalk Method
This method is a way for you to shop around online, track what you want but don’t spend just yet. A good way to track your finds is by using Pinterest. Create a board where you can pin all of the items you’ve come across online and want to buy. Having all of these items in one place will make it easier so you can then constantly check back to see if (1) they’re on sale, (2) inventory, you don’t want them to sell out, and (3) it’ll allow you to weigh your options. For example, if you have a pair of booties that you love on one site, search for them on another site, pin those items as well and continue to check both sites. You never know when an unexpected sale may come about. So, yes this will require a little stalking, but hey it saves you money!
These little tricks that I use along with investing in my basics have saved me so much money over the years and it make easier for me to be in a new outfit, no matter the occasion, with the clothes I have in my closet.
Surprised at how little you could be spending or saving? You can look and feel good with the clothes you have without always having to spend money.
