I donned this outfit last week before the temps made their sudden dive southward this weekend. I guess I can kiss bright crisp afternoons in short-sleeves goodbye. As I much as I look forward to cooler weather, I can't say I enjoy having to bundle up so much already just to walk the pup in the mornings (sorry, neighbors, I've officially broken out my flannel PJ bottoms and when it's the crack of dawn, I'll be seen meandering my way across your walk in monkey pants and kick butt hiking boots).
I spent most of last winter in skirts and heels sans stockings and felt fine about it. This year however, as it is just beginning to hit the 50s in the SE, I am having thoughts of filling my closets with big ole nubbly warm sweaters and puffy super-warm coats. And knee socks. Thick woolen toe warmers. When did I suddenly become a cold wimp? I think that living in the SE for the past few years has made me soft to anything under 65. Be warned, I can already anticipate my level of chilled-to-the-bone whining come January temps!
