It’s the middle of Summer in the Northern hemisphere, so most of us are wearing breezy Summer clothes and very few layers. That’s why it’s a great time to attend to cold weather wardrobe items that need a little tender loving care.

In particular, I’m talking about wool coats and knitwear that need to go the cleaners. Leather jackets and leather trimmed items that require speciality cleaning. And boots that could do with a visit to the cobbler. That way your and your family’s Fall and Winter items are spick and span, and ready for wearing again later in the year. 

Our boots and leather jackets are in good shape, but I’m taking our wool coats to the cleaners and rechecking our warm chunky sweaters this week. I’ll also be thinking about refreshing my cozy Fall slippers in time for their late September debut.
