Here at AMPM Scrubs, we can't believe it's already August!
As summer begins to wind down, it's time to start preparing for the next season. Now, fall isn't so bad, and in fact, a lot of people look forward to it! The changing leaves, a slight chill to the air, and pumpkin flavored everything, fall has its charms. However, as busy, working professionals, we all like to get ahead from time to time, so let's look at how we can start preparing for the upcoming season.
Take care of your outdoor spaces
If you're lucky enough to have a garden or outdoor space, now is a great time to start prepping it for fall. If you've been showing off your green thumb abilities and planting flowers throughout the spring and early summer months, we recommend you now take a walk through your garden and examine it with care. Note flowers that need to be removed before winter, and bring potted herbs indoors. Cleaning the gutters and windows, both inside and out will help prepare you for the colder months ahead, and copious amounts of falling leaves!
This has to be one of the best parts of the upcoming season, autumnal decorating! Think rustic, country farmhouse, and you're on the right track. Even something as simple as changing the pillowcases on your throw pillows can do the trick, perhaps a lovely muted plaid or earth tones such as forest green or rust? Scent is another important aspect of fall decorating, anything warm and spicy, such as; pumpkin spice, apple spice, and cinnamon will give your home that cozy, fall feeling that we all love to come home to after a chilly October day.
Update your wardrobe
Another favorite aspect of fall is the fashion, and updating your wardrobe doesn't have to break the bank! Over the past couple of years "capsule wardrobes" have been rising in popularity and for those of you who are not familiar with the term, it's when you only buy a certain amount of clothing items for a season, let's say 10 pieces for example, but all things can be interchanged to make various outfits. This is an excellent way of cutting back on frivolous spending while prioritizing quality over quantity. In your capsule wardrobe, we recommend picking up a couple of high-quality knitwear pieces (cable knit is always a favorite!), a couple pairs of jeans, and AMPM scrubs in our shop fleece range!
Get back into a routine
It's easy to fall out of a routine during the summer months, especially if you have kids. Throughout August, it's essential to get back on schedule, introducing a routine and prioritizing sleep earlier in the month will help your little ones' ease into earlier bedtimes and earlier mornings before the first day of school. Making sure summer days are structured is also a good way of keeping a routine going, eating meals at appropriate times and unplugging from devices in the evening.
