Get in Shape
First thing you can do is start exercising. When summer time comes around I dig out last years clothes and start complaining that I look horrible, nothing fits and that I need new clothes when in actual fact I probably just need to get rid of my winter weight so that everything fits and I feel better about myself.
So now is a great time to start working on your arms, belly, bum and thighs and then you will feel great and look great in your shorts, skirts and dresses. Join a gym, attend some exercise classes, start walking, running, swimming or even start an exercise routine at home. Just get moving and trust me you will start to look and feel great.
Sort out your wardrobe
Work out what is hot this season
Remix your clothes to get more looks with fewer items.
If you are going to buy new clothes make sure they are pieces that you can remix with other items you already have in your wardrobe. This way you can have twice as many looks.
Swap and borrowIf you have sisters or friends that are a similar size to you then you could try doing a clothes swap. Gather up all the things you no longer want and swap them for some other goodies. Or if you have an event to go to, instead or buying something new borrow something from a friend.
