One of the best parts about living in Houston is that it is warm and sunny in the middle of the winter. At one point in my life I felt like I couldn’t wear warm weather clothes in January because it was still officially winter. I don’t know when I changed my opinion, but I’m so glad I did and now I’m on another kick- ha! In fact, my new mantra just may be dress according to the weather, not the season- ha!
While I can’t pin-point the moment my opinion changed, I have a few scenario’s I think may have influenced me. I have a bff that lives in Miami (she’s a stylist- check her blog out here) and we had a conversation about what people wear there in the fall. She said they wear beach shoes, shorts, sweaters for layering at night and always the color white- YES! It may have been the times when I was sweating in my cold weather clothes when it was unseasonably warm, (suffer no more!). Maybe it’s because when the sun is finally shining I want to celebrate and wear my warm weather clothes. Or maybe it was after I blogged about wearing white all year round because, hey- after all, Emily Post says it’s OK. Who knows what the catalyst was for the change, but what I do know is that it’s been kinda liberating!
I hope you’ll join me in dressing for the weather and not the season. And for those of you who have been doing this for years, why didn’t you tell me- ha!
