How to Store Your Knits for Summer

Store Your Knits for Summer

When the weather starts to warm up, there comes a day that we decide that we don’t need to wear our cozy knits anymore. For the best results, you should make sure your knits are tucked away safely. Here’s how to store your knits for summer:

First, make sure that your items are clean. Even though it’s cold in the winter, we still tend to sweat a little when we’re warm and cozy. To find out how to wash your item/s, check out our Care Guide.

Second, you will want to get an air tight container. I personally recommend under the bed storage. Make sure that there is no moisture in there.

Third, when you add your knits to the container, add a small sachet of lavender or cedar. This will help keep moths away and add some freshness during the warmer months where the air tends to get stale, especially in the air tight container.

So there you have it, how to store your knits for summer. You will be so happy when fall is back and you know all of your coziness was well cared for and ready for you!

Things to Love :: March 2020

Things To Love Spring 2020

Winter isn’t quite over yet! These months have been so cold, dark, and dry. Here are some things to love to get you through the last stretch of the season!

1. This awesome CBD infused Lip Balm from Kind Lab. It’s been my savior keeping my lips hydrated during the dry winter season. I always check my bag to make sure I have it on me!

2. The Rosewood Neroli candle from Loxley and Leaf. The scent is so soothing and reminds me of how you would imagine a high end day spa smelling like. I love that Loxley and Leaf doesn’t use dyes and has a natural wood wick!

3. My Salem Style Purple Henna Pouch. I use this one in my big purse to carry advil and essential oils to be prepared for a head-cold that usually comes during this time of year.

4. This awesome Hot/Cold Pack from Payne & Comfort. Not only is the pattern super cool, it’s incredibly soothing. I usually use it as a hot pack, but I love knowing it could be a cold pack if I need it!

5. Tiger’s Eye from A Fine Balance Wellness. I met Anna right before the first ever workshop that I was on a panel for. We met in her beautiful space, and I told her how nervous I was to speak. She gave me this crystal and told me to rub it to help with anxiety. Now I always have it on me if I need it!

Looking Back on 2019 – The Year of GROWTH

Oh man you guys. What an incredible year this has been. As I write this post, it’s Salem Style’s 8th Birthday! Who would have thought that 8 years later, I would be sitting here typing away to you all with the fullest hear imaginable. In January of 2019, I chose the word “growth”. Whatever action I took, or decision I had to make, I kept saying in my head “will this help me grow?” Turn out, yes, yes it did.

Thank you. Thank you all for this awesome year. I am totally blown away by the amount of support from everyone.

2019 was the BEST YEAR Salem Style has ever had. All thanks to you, the #salemstylesquad 

I’m already so excited for 2020!
