Closet Swap!

The month of June is wrapping up, July heat wave is upon us, and it’s official – we’re into summer!  That said, it’s time to ensure the wardrobe transition is taking place.  Do you swap out your closet for summer?  While I don’t actually swap out any clothing in my closet, I do certainly have sections that I ignore for the summer months and items that I embrace as the sun continues to shine longer and brighter.

As a part of the Raise.com interactive campaign “Closet Swap,” I’m happy to be part of a group of fashion bloggers sharing what wardrobe transitions are taking place in our own closets as we move into summer attire.

My go-to summer transition items include bright bold patterns, light summer dresses, and sexy heels (mainly summer sandals).  Not only are dresses forever feminine and flirty, but they’re also comfortable and so easy!  With a bold pattern and a sexy heel, there’s hardly a need for jewelry or heavy accessories (which I find can be irritating in the sticky Cincinnati heat); just throw on and go!

Bold Patterns… Summer Dresses… Sexy Sandals

You have the best collection of printed dress (and heels as we all know). Love all of your dresses. And Raise sounds like a cool company and fun for what they do.

P.S. Thanks so much for stopping by and approving of my new haircut. =)

You have so many gorgeous dresses! :)

I swap my wardrobe out for each season - only because I have more clothes than wardrobe space so I have to store some of it in boxes...even after multiple wardrobe clear outs, haha!
