Preparing for a Summer Wardrobe!

summer wardrobe

I desperately need to clean out my closet.  I’m talking every stitch of clothing must be removed and rehung/organized.  It is hands down, without a doubt, a giant hot mess.  I keep telling myself that I will clean it out when it is time to bring out my warmer weather clothing…well, that time has come.  I don’t personally enjoy cleaning out closets, but I do enjoy having an organized house, so, with that said, it’s getting done this weekend.  And since I’ve just put it in writing, I must follow through.

Cleaning aside, I am excited to see that bright and airy clothing which is always a fun surprise to see when I open the closet door.  And since I know this event is in my future, I thought I would share some fun summer clothes that would be fabulous to have in any wardrobe, vintage or modern!

I love this 1930’s striped skirt/dress combo.  A look and style that has been, and will certainly be, repeated many times.

Can’t go wrong with a ruffled short sleeve blouse for warm weather like this 1940’s version.

I can’t decide what I like more about these 1940’s skirts….their airiness or bold patterns!

If you took the left outfit in this advertisement and made it into a solid dress, it would be the perfect summer picnic outfit!

While very similar to the 1940’s versions above, these 1950’s skirts have extra fullness!

Peasant tops and floral skirts…the quintessential summer look!

I adore the pleating of these skirts…and their fabulous price!

Well, wish me luck everyone!  Tomorrow, come rain or come shine, I will be knee deep in a seasonal closet overhaul!

    Love the two outfits in the Wake’s ad. Very nice design. Very nicely made. Judging from the address of the store, in the ad, that must have been a shop in Melbourne, Australia.
