In my area there is snow on the ground and at least another 2 months of cold weather. I’d say our winter season is only about halfway done at this point. However, during a recent trip to the mall I noticed that all of the winter weight clothing is already gone. In it’s place is resort wear as well as the first wave of spring merchandise.
It’s tempting to start shopping for spring now while the stock is new. But it will be months before I would have the opportunity to sport my new clothes. The stores are moving the seasons faster than Mother Nature is for my area.
If I had a wish list item for spring clothing and I see it in the stores, I would be tempted to purchase it. However, I’m staying away from shopping the first wave of spring merchandise to ‘freshen up’ my spring wardrobe. It’s tempting to shop now, but the stores have only stocked wave 1 of spring clothing. I know new items will continue to enter the stores for at least another month or two. And anything purchased now will sit for months unworn.
Do you let the stores or the current weather in your area drive your shopping?
