You all know I am the queen of wash and wear fashion. I have an entire category on this blog devoted to Real Life Style + Beauty because I have no desire to be an aspirational arbiter of fashion. Yes, I love pretty clothes! But I also know myself really well, and the truth is if I buy something with a Dry Clean Only tag on it, chances are I’m skipping it in favor of something I can wash and wear. The Laundry Room is my church. Here is the Stackable Altar where I pray And while I am outing my style sins can I tell you one more superficial confession? I HAVE A LOVE AFFAIR WITH THE SMELL OF LAUNDRY DETERGENT! And dry cleaned clothes kind of smell icky. There, I said it. When I was offered a chance to review Tide Pods — calling it a powerful 3-in-1 detergent that cleans, brightens, and fights stains — I thought sure I’ll try it — my life right now is in serious need of some short cuts — but will it still make my clothes smell like laundry detergent? We shall see… I spent a weekend doing my laundry with the Tide Pods, and I’m happy to report they were easy to use, unfussy, and MOST IMPORTANTLY my clothes still had the fresh laundry smell I was used to. I washed a jacket I recently picked up at Target that I think is going to be one of my FAVORITE pieces for fall and now it is just waiting for the weather to cool down so I can wear it! YAY! Fresh Smelling Fall clothes! I’m a simple gal, and if my clothes look stylish, can go in the washer and dryer and smell like a Spring Meadow all day, well COLOR ME HAPPY! I’d like to color YOU happy as well, which is why I’m going to suggest you enter the Sweepstakes below by telling me about your favorite fall pieces for a chance to win a $100 gift card. Tell me – what is your favorite item to wear for fall?
