Saying Goodbye to Summer…Fashion I am packing away!
Do you have those Summer pieces you wore over and over and are sad when it comes time to pack them away? These are pieces that don’t transition into Fall. Summer short, Summer Printed tops and dresses, Sandals you loved, and those perfect Straw hats and Fun Summer Bags. I sure do, These pieces I wore to death all summer long and genuinely hated having to pack them away, Partly because it means the end of summer and partly because these pieces brought me joy all summer long.
These linen shorts HERE from Old navy I purchase in the stripe and four solid colors. So affordable, comfortable, and easy to style. I wore with a tank or graphic tee and if not to hot-finished off with a denim jacket. Shop the whole look HERE. Picking up summer pieces on SALE for next year is always a great idea and like Christmas when you unpack your summer clothing!
My favorite sandal this year by far! I purchased my tan shoes from my girlfriends little boutique Rowan in California. Best purchase ever, I could have worn every day they worked with every outfit I put together. Forcing myself to grab other sandals (lord knows I own plenty!) These would be great for traveling just for that reason. Here, and Similar in tan HERE and HERE
Those fun straw bags and favorite espadrilles we all love and collect scream all things summer! I am a sucker for cute bags and shoes. They get me every season, but especially in the summer. These are very hard for me to say goodbye. The struggle is so real 🙂 but let’s face it transitioning these cuties into Fall is pushing it. It’s time to say goodbye for now and see you in a year. Bring out the booties and fantastic leather bags, and this Fall, you might even be seeing some fringe. Shop these shoes here.
I like to store all my summer bags in the totes below; I like the clear bins so I can see them. I store all my Summer sandals in the shoe storage, also shown below.
I loved the Blazer and Bermuda shorts trend this year, Yes Blazer’s transition great into every season, but as I stated above, shorts are hard, especially in Utah. All though you can wear with a sweater and sweatshirt on chillier evenings or a crisp day, those days are far too little living here in Utah or Mountain communities. Packing these guys away, Tip, I like to roll all my shorts and store in bins showed below. Shop this look HERE
More shorts and here I am showing one of my favorite Summer straw hats, Spf 50 sunscreen built-in! Straw hats unless its a cowboy hat is for Summer and time to pack away. Shop this look HERE Now, thank goodness Kimonos transition well for Fall unless a bright Summer print, so keep those out for a little while longer.
Check out at the end of this post how I like to store my hats and other treasures.

Although I love, I move all my Floral, summer printed tops, skirts, and dress in summer colors to the back of my closet. My Fall and Winter wardrobe is full of darker and more Fall & Winter seasonal colors. Black, gray, cream, wine, spiced, mustard, navy, etc. Shop this look HERE
Floral Prints and what to do?
Saying Goodbye to Summer…Fashion I am packing away! My love of floral prints always has me sad to see them go. Fall color florals transition into Fall so you can keep those out for a little longer, but as I stated above, Summer florals should be packed away. Note my favorite sandals here again:)
What do you do with those seasonal dresses?
Dresses can be so versatile and can be great wardrobe builders, but unfortunately, some dresses do scream their season, like above, it truly is a Summer/Spring dress. Find it HERE. Just like a sweater dress is a Fall/Winter dress. If you purchase a ton of this season’s tee shirt dress, You can keep those out and transition those into your Fall wardrobe by adding layers and wearing with booties or tennis shoes. Suppose you have darker colored or dark or fall printed dresses that transition perfectly as well. I’ll be sharing some Fall transition looks all upcoming week in my stories and my Instagram feed, so make sure you follow along.
Sharing with you what I am Saying Goodbye to Summer with and what Fashion I am packing away! I hope I inspired you to say goodbye to Summer in a pleasant way and maybe even get a little organized to make room for that Fun FALL fashion. ( Hope you checked out My Fall picks from the Nordstrom SALE HERE, HERE, HERE)
Do your Pack up our closet or shift you’re seasonal close to the back?
Speaking of packing, do you pack up your Summer clothing and accessories, or do you move them to the back of your closet? I do both, I pack up some items, and I shift other pieces to the back. I thought you might like some of my favorite closet organizing containers for packing up Seasonal pieces in your closet. These pieces can also help you organize your closet regularly.
