The weather channel used to be my favorite.

Today was the first day I dressed appropriately for the fall weather. It's been in the 50/60s and being that I had just come back from the 80/90s in Florida and Louisiana, I was not mentally prepared to dress myself for what felt like an Arctic chill. This was not the weather I left the city in and apparently Mother Nature does not care about the girl scout rule of leaving things better than when you found them. I guess you could argue the cool weather is better than sweltering heat, but I forgot for a moment that New York has 4 seasons. I'm seriously spoiled with this changing of the seasons stuff and I think if I ever move back to the south, there will be some seriously tough transitional periods.

So, I finally (because 3 days freezing your ass off feels like forever. trust me) pulled my boots out from the back of my closet and added some tights to a cute sundress with a cardigan. . . and now it's supposed to be in the 70s until Monday. Crap. That's trickery, Ms. Nature and I don't appreciate the joke when I'm sleep deprived and cranky.

But I am really excited about Fall in New York. It means it's tight weather which is my favorite addition to my wardrobe. If you haven't already figured it out, I am pro-dress wearing and tights happen to be the secret to getting away with wearing dresses in the winter.
Recently, I was introduced to Jessica Schroeder. She was linked on Guest of a Guest where she writes a fabulous how-to article on tights- you should check it out if you plan on embarking on this statement this season. I'm thinking of expanding my tights to the bright colors; you should, too.

I found Jessica's style/fashion blog a while back and have her linked on my page as well. I love her and I completely agree...cute dress & tights can totally transform a look and you don't even have to buy new dresses, just add some tights, boots, and maybe a scarf and you're good to go.

It's been raining where I live in Florida for over a week..

Nice if you like splashing in puddles all day and hair that was straight going curly in 5 mins. Then it goes straight again after being in the a/c

In preparation for the cold southern california winter, I have added royal purple and SPARKLY gold tights to my wardrobe. More to come.
