3 C’s for Summer Fashion

Spring, where have you gone? How is summer quickly approaching us in Melbourne, Florida already? Soon it will be Father’s Day, and then the Fourth of July, then Labor day and so on. We at Artistic Closet Designs know that summer is at Brevard Country’s front door and we are about to let it in. And when we let summer in, we also have to allow their plus one “the heat” along with it.

Summers in Vero Beach can be extremely beautiful, but they can also be extremely warm and humid. This heat can affect how one may choose between certain clothing items for specific events. Whether it is a day-to-day outfit or a special occasion, it may be smart to consider the 3 C’s of summer fashion before venturing out into the Florida sunshine.

Need Custom Work Done? Choose Locally!

Decisions, decisions, decisions. When you get custom work done in your home you are faced with nothing but decisions. Not only do you need to decide what you want to be done, but you also need to decide who you can trust to come into your sanctuary to do it. Your home is your safe space and inviting outside help can be a tricky thing. Not only will they be coming into your home and changing things up, you also have to trust them to do the work well. So, how do you know who to choose when looking to get custom work done? Start by looking at companies that are locally owned and operated.

Organize Your Life and Mind

Time is a funny thing. We don’t know about you, but it seems like 2018 is going by so fast we can barely believe it! It can be hard to remember where all that time has slipped away to. It probably feels like it was just yesterday that you were making your New Year’s resolutions and plans for the year ahead. Now, you may look around your home and notice that those little projects you started were never finished, your cleaning goals were never met, and things are thrown about the place.

At Artistic Closets Designs in Melbourne, FL, we know that when you lead busy lives, things like cleaning, organizing, and “me time” tend to go straight out the window. This is especially true if you have kids to look after who maybe don’t share the same desires for everything to be as clean and organized as you do. So this month, it might be a good idea to challenge ourselves a little. Resolve to get things back to the way you envisioned back in January. Here is how:

Where Have Our Communities Gone?

Have you looked around lately and noticed that everything is starting to look the same? Every interstate exit seems to have the exact same food establishments, same gas stations, same drug stores. If you dare venture down the road you’re likely to witness the same scene at the next traffic light. Each shop is offering a better deal than the next. A $.99 taco or $1.49 burger, are we really eating this? And in bulk quantities no less? It appears major food and convenience store chains are trying to nickel and dime each other out of business rather than focusing on being the best in the business.

Working Hard or Hardly Working?

So many of us are fortunate to have the ability to work from home these days. The technology era has allowed us to begin to forgo the rigid 40-hour work week plus commute and errands and give way to a more flexible way of life. We may not all be so lucky yet, but more and more part or full time telecommute positions and e-commerce opportunities are popping up every day. However, with great flexibility comes great responsibility.
