Spring Cleaning


Spring wasn't always my favorite. I was always more of a fall girl, enamored with the yellow-orange-red leaves that crunched under my feet, the layers, the chill in the air. I still love it, but since becoming a Mom I gravitate towards spring so much more. Nothing's better than having the windows open everyday and being able to spend our time outside, not stuck in the house thanks to 20 degree weather.

To me spring means renewal, even more than a New Year. It's the rebirth of everything, and as the years have gone by I've found myself looking forward to that first feeling of spring in the air, and smile to myself, excited about the sunshine and outdoor adventures to come.

So when Zappos wanted to partner on a post about spring cleaning our closets, it was an easy yes for me. I've used Zappos before to order shoes and was always impressed with their customer service and quick shipping. But this time around I was truly blown away by all of the different brands they carry! It was very hard to just pick a few items- I wanted it all- but I tried to stick to "needs" and what my spring self could use most of all.

I went with three staples to refresh my closet- first was a new pair of Birkenstocks, but this time in a light taupe, perfect for spring. If you're on the fence, just GET THESE, people- they're my favorite shoe and an everyday slip on and go sandal for me- you'll love them! I also picked up a hat for running and hiking- I needed one with a little more sun coverage and the "trucker hat" style is perfect, and then I also chose a new pair of running shoes in a fun, bright color.

I ordered and the items were at our doorstep two days later. Yay, Zappos. Great experience all around, and my closet thanks you. Are you spring cleaning your wardrobe at all? Do you have any must-have pieces you'll be going for this season?

  1. I was like you, a bigger fan of the fall than the spring. But then my husband and I started growing a big garden in our backyard and now I can't wait for the return of spring and summer each year! I'm definitely going to do a bit of spring cleaning in my closet. There are some items I haven't worn in a while. I am in need of some new spring shoes. I feel like my footwear goes from winter boots to summer sandals and nothing in-between (besides sneakers). I could see myself living in those Birkenstocks all summer!
