Just when I thought I had this weather all figured out, I was thrown for a loop on Sunday when I stepped out for some coffee with a new friend. The past few days had been quintessential Fall weather, so I whipped up a cozy outfit for a brisk day.
Imagine my surprise when I stepped outside to a balmy 77 degree day! Northern VA, you got me again. I was already running a little late and thought I could just suck it up, but I got to the car and was sweating. I was NOT about to ruin a good hair day with sweat from dressing too warm, so I ran back inside to rethink my outfit. Luckily, this was an outfit that was easy to alter for a warmer day. I simply peeled off a few layers and changed my shoes, and was still left with a cute and comfy outfit perfect for coffee and chatting. Never mind that my legs are in dire need of a shave. Who's gonna notice?
Now that we are in this fickle season, it's great to have a wardrobe that can be easily interchanged for when the weather just won't make up its mind. The addition (or omission) of a few accessories can be just the thing to create a whole new outfit. It's like doubling your closet, really.
I've been waiting for the day where I could finally introduce these high heeled boots to the world, but it looks like I'll have to wait until the temperature decides to drop again. Sigh. Guess it's time to break out the razor again...
What are some of your favorite ways to take outfits from hot to cold?
