Summer in Winter

summer in winter outfit

It was 82 degrees here yesterday, and I had a bunch of errands to run around town, so I needed to wear something comfortable but still put-together. Only problem: I can’t accept that it’s not winter. What do you wear on those weird days in Austin when it suddenly feels like May?

  • Try a fitted (but not tight) tee in a darker color. The tee will feel good and light, but it wont read too summery in February.
  • Cropped pants will show a little (extremely pale in my case) ankle, but wont require shaving, but you won’t feel too hot. I call these my mime pants.
  • A scarf-as-necklace will make your outfit a little more jazzy, and protect you when it gets a little chillier in the shade. I admit that I was a little too hot with the scarf, but I CAN’T LET WINTER GO YET.

Now you are armed with some tips to prevent YOU from having an identity crisis when the weather does!

    I, too, am suffering from a fashion crisis, as this weather has me befuddled. I stubbornly wear wool socks in rebellion and close-toed leather shoes. I’m just not ready for the heat! I haven’t even gotten through my fall/winter wardrobe yet, Austin! I have worn my new boots and fuzzy-lined leggings I got for Christmas only once. Le sigh. This has me worried about the summer. My meteorologist sister says it’s La niƱa, so you can blame that nebulous strumpet of a weather pattern.
