As the saying here goes, “Don’t like the weather? Just wait a few minutes.” And it’s true. Yesterday was sunny and warm topping out at around 65 degrees. Today we wake up to 40 degree temps and rain. The weekend forecast even includes, gasp, snow on Sunday night. Of course, once Monday rolls around the sun shines again and temps begin to climb.
The hardest part of this every-changing weather? What to wear.
I like to celebrate the warm weather as much as anyone, but I also keep in mind that 60+ temperatures in March are not a green light to wear shorts, t-shirts and flip-flops. It’s also not an excuse to break out the tank tops and linen pants. Good grief, we need some fashion sense here! I enjoyed the day wearing my favorite skinny jeans, a 3/4 sleeve t-shirt and my Converse sneakers. I’ll admit it, I looked pretty cute. And I was comfortable as well.
Today I have several fashion challenges to face. First, I need something appropriate for a funeral. I’m thinking my favorite black jacket, charcoal pants and comfortable boots. Drab, sure, but it’s a funeral and I think black is appropriate. Later, I have a beer tasting party to attend which means I can break out my cowboy boots and jeans. All that’s missing is a cute top so I’m digging through my closet to find something interesting. Knowing me, I’ll end up in a shirt and vest combo. Not exciting, but warm and comfortable.
So here I am, celebrating the first day of spring in dark, dreary colors to match the dark, dreary day we’re having. I think Mother Nature might need some Prozac.
