Your Wardrobe Essentials for Spring and Summer

My friend Lynn gave me this fantastic book on my birthday entitled Instant Style: Your Season-By-Season Guide For Work and Weekend. It is authored and published by the editors on InStyle magazine.

I am currently in a season where I am going through all my clothes, shoes, purses and accessories. I have three piles named: To Keep, To Sell and To Give Away. I plan to have a little garage sale next month. Will keep you posted on that later on.

In the book is a cute bookmark that serves as a checklist of a female's wardrobe essentials.

In this entry, I would like to share with you the Spring + Summer Essentials. I believe this is most applicable in all-year-round Manila weather. If this is a purging season for you, then this checklist is for you.

LOOK THROUGH YOUR CLOSET, BUY IF NECESSARY, THEN CHECK!
