Shop For Summer, Plan For Fall

jerseytopI love this time of year when it comes to expanding my wardrobe. Stores are filling the clearance racks with summer clothes trying to unload and make room for their upcoming Fall 2014 Collections. If you’re smart, you can snatch up these deals.  With a little planning you can also stock up on some cheap fall clothes! My Three Simple Rules to Mid-Summer Shopping:

  • Choose warm colors.  Pick colors that will look great throughout the year.  Whether there is sun in your eyes or snow on your boots!
  • Remember layers.  Find shirts that will look good under your favorite cardigan or jacket once the chilly air arrives.
  • Stay away from super trendy sandals.  It’s easy to buy super cute trendy shoes on the cheap right now but you might not wear them much longer this season and by next summer they might loose their cool…

Check our the Jersey Top from H&M.  For less than $13 you’ve got a shirt that will last you all year!  Pair with shorts, maxi skirts, jeans or leggings and you’ve got a great outfit on the cheap! Plan ahead, it will save you the headache and money by the time fall comes around.
