Summer is officially upon us! Though the Memorial Day weekend weather here in San Francisco was anything but summery (think chilly, windy, and foggy), there was definitely a sense of calmness in the air and the promise of warmer days ahead. (Slightly warmer, at least!)
Way back when, proper etiquette had it that you should NEVER wear white before Memorial Day, or after Labor Day, and that you also had to be conscious of when you donned things like linen, seersucker, sandals, wool, and other traditionally seasonal garb. These days, the rules on what to wear when are much looser, thank goodness. But there's still something to be said for looking at your wardrobe with a critical eye every now and then. This week's article can help you do just that:

If you've seen "What Not to Wear," you know that the hosts practice a lot of tough love with their guests. And sometimes that's the most effective tool to use when it comes to making decisions about what gets to stay in our lives (and our closets) and what doesn't. If you're ready to give your own stuff some tough love, read about the organizing challenge I recently set forth:
