summer wardrobe recap....

As summer draws to a close...
I  got on PicMonkey...
and pulled together a season's worth of outfits....

and I thought I'd share...

not even so much the outfits...
but the wardrobe styling tip
 for all of you that take weekly  wardrobe pictures 

collage them...

print them off...
and keep them in your closet until the next spring/summer season...

You will have a precise inventory of your favorite outfits...
all ready to go...

I did this last fall...

for a post I did a cumulative overview of what I had worn for the season...
I was so happy with how it looked I printed it off..
hung it on a inspiration board...

and forgot about it....
until with the summer heat it fell to the ground...
picking it up ...
I realized I had just found a recipe of all of my favorite outfits...
and the pieces I owned!

As seasons end and we are so familiar...
by the end of the season...
I am too familiar....
we think we will always remember each outfit....
but then life happens and we forget....

but if as the season ends...
and you take my advice and go to Pic Monkey's free site and
 make a collage of all of your
favorites outfit posts from the season...

come next spring/summer ....
you will have a personalized road map of your favorites...
and at the same time an inventory of what you all ready own...
making duplicate purchases a thing of the past!

and a perfect jump start on the season!

Making styling your life...
a summer breeze!

as always dear friends

I wish you love and joy 
as you style your life
