Out with the old, in with the new! Are you cleaning up your closet and introducing back in the lighter pieces for the warming up weather? Since our apartment is so tiny, we store our off-season clothing in boxes underneath our elevated bed, and I have been slowly been pulling them out! When the sun decides to show its face, I like to take inventory of items that I want to add into my wardrobe that are currently trending. Use this post as your guide to buying for the upcoming Spring Season!
