My first order of business as I moonlight as a SAHM was to tackle my walk~in attic.
Since last Christmas, I have just been opening the door and shoving stuff in there willy~nilly.
To say it's a mess would be an understatement.
Since one of my greatest fears is that I will be a future guest on Hoarders:Buried Alive, I knew a clean up needed to be my first priority!
Although it was 80 degrees and humid all day and the air conditioning is back on full force, the weatherman promises we'll be in the 50's for the weekend.
So what better time to prepare ourselves and break out all the cozy items I have come to miss so much?
There are hordes of Rubbermaid tubs of fall/winter clothing to be sorted as well as the seasonal swap over of decor.
All lot to handle in one day, and as you can see from the pictures...I have made quite a mess!
Each season, I pull out EVERYTHING and place it in my closets and dressers.
And 75% of it goes unworn because I'm just not into some things.
This time I am purging.
Items to eBay, items to sell at our local flea market...this fall I am craving very classic and tailored looks...blazers and button ups, pencil skirts and no frill dresses.
My inner prepster is taking over!
I am sick to death of ruffles and flounce and spent the evening removing ruffled trim from a great tweed jacket and the very dramatic cascade of flounce from a silk blouse.
The repurposing has made them both feel new and modern.
Clean and simple.
There are items I won't purge because I truly love them and will pack away until next fall when maybe I will be drawn to wearing them again.
What looks are you most drawn to this fall?
