    I’m sure my version of “winter clothing” differs a lot from people in other states, but I pull out sweaters and light jackets for night and mornings usually late November, early December.  However, I do tend to wear flip flops year round πŸ™‚

    Most of my winter clothes are still hanging in the closest but they likely won’t see the light of day until Christmas. Most falls I being them out around mid-November but this year has been extremely warm (~80 days of >100) so I’m predicting I won’t need them until we visit my parents for the holidays.

    When I go outside in my sundress and get chilly haha. In Texas you really never actually know if it’s fall or “fake fall”.

    I never put mine away but it isn’t because it is cold all year.  I just don’t want to hassle with storing my clothes and moving stuff around for different seasons.  So everything I own is perfectly easily accessable all year round and I just wear what I need for the weather on any given day.

    Funny, I was just thinking about this.  I never had this issue until I moved to the East Coast.  So, I was looking at my closet today and realized that I have to wash all the hats and scarves (which I was lazy and didn’t do at the end of winter).  And I need to wrap them in a pillowcase so they don’t get caught in the machine, hang them to dry all over the house. Also, I didn’t dry-clean my coats in the Spring so now i have that chore (for some reason dry-cleaning is ridiculous here-it’s going to cost me over $100) and I have to air out the sweaters, etc. etc.

    And then make sure all the bathing suits are washed and put away too. Put away the beach totes, swap out my handbags, swap out my summer pajamas. It’s just too much maintenance if you ask me.  We’re on a two-year plan to move to Maui.  Then, no more worries:)

    @Sweet.Sugar.Rose: I never put mine away, but I have 4 very distinct seasons here in Chicago! I don’t like the process of cleaning closets, so everything from every season hangs up in my closet all year round. Plus, sometimes in the winter, I’ll wear tank tops or short sleeve shirts under a cardigan, so I like to have them available. Also, my office gets so cold with AC that even on hot 95 degree days, I need sweaters available to bring to work!

    End of September/early October usually. Sometimes summers linger and it’s maybe longer, but always by Halloween.

    I never really put them away, I just don’t wear them for July/Aug. They just sit in the drawer that I keep them in for Sep-June. ha. :-/

    haha I basically only bring them out (and by that I mean my one long sleeve shirt, two hoodies and my big jacket) in January/February and wear them for maybe a month in total.

    I ran my first 5k in December and wore a t-shirt… It doesn’t really get too cold here.

    The seasons seem to be shifting later and later each year. I probably won’t be getting out my true colder weather clothes (read: sweaters and boots) until mid to late October.
