I know I keep saying this over and over, but the weather where I live is really crazy. It will be 80F one day and 28F the very next with a foot of snow. To accommodate, I've had to use some creativity when I want to wear those pretty late Winter or Spring dresses and skirts.
Now, I'm probably crossing a lot of fashion faux pas, but this was just what I had worn. These photos were just randoms that I took in the last few weeks. As much as I love skirts and dresses, sometimes you need to prepare for unpredictable weather. For me that means lots of layers, leggings, double-layers of leggings, legwarmers, boots, scarves, and hats. I also wear a long-sleeved thermal shirt under cardigans and some type of scarf almost every day. I CAN'T WAIT FOR SUMMER!
In the meantime, I'll share a few of my outfits that have held me over.
Breakdown: Black thermal long-sleeve shirt, sweater dress, double-layered leggings, long pink hoodie, cashmere scarf, sweater boots
Breakdown: knit hat, beige thermal long-sleeve shirt, navy sweater tunic-dress, cropped cardigan, grey sweater-skirt, double-layered brown leggings, cream legwarmers, camel-colored boots
Breakdown: White ribbed long-sleeved shirt, tank top, tan zip-up lightweight hoodie, yellow skirt, beige legwarmers, woven leather wedge heels
These went from coldest to warmest. I won't give up wearing skirts in freezing weather! And come on, wearing leggings is way more comfy than wearing jeans any day. Who's with me?
You guys need to let me know your techniques for dealing with cold weather. I try to mix it up, but somehow the same combo keeps coming up. Anyone feel like they get stuck in this rut too?
By the way, I thoroughly apologize to all you Aussies who are living in a heat stroke. ;) I'm sure we are both desperately jealous of each other right now! Ahh, the weather change will come soon for us both. I just need to learn to be more patient.
Haha. Yeah right.
