Fall is fast approaching and if you are in the northern areas you may have already been touched by frost and (dare I say it) snow! It’s time to Cuddle up, with attractive Fall Fashions to keep you snug as a bug in a rug!
Taking the time to change over your wardrobe from summer to fall has many people down in the dumps. It’s hard to say goodbye to those warm and sunny days. I have noticed that in just the last week, the days are getting shorter and shorter. There is a chill in the air when I have that first cup of joe out on the balcony! Slippers are replacing my flip flops and there is always a sweater close by.
So What’s a Gal Supposed to Do?
Well my first suggestion is to “get used to it”! It’s not going to get warmer unless you are planning a trip down South!
My next suggestion is learn to layer your clothes again. In summer we take as much off as is allowed, but in the fall we add! It’s all part of the balance. Layering is one of the best ways to keep yourself warm though. Air gets trapped in between and is warmed up by your own body. So the layer of air closest to you is always warm. Here are some great ways to do just that.
Fall in your neck of the woods could be very chilly or just slowly work it’s way to winter. If that’s the case for you, then you have so many options. You might only need a vest to keep your body warmed, while your arms and legs will do great with only a sweater and pants. If it gets really chilly, then hoodies or lightweight jackets that block out the wind, could be your answer! If it gets really chilly, then you might just opt for a winter jacket and leave it open, until the wind bites you hard enough to zip it up. I personally love hoodies and ponchos. I find them easy to layer with either T-shirts and sweaters. And it let’s me undo some layers for when I am indoors again.
When morning temperatures are in the 40’s and 50’s, but afternoons are still in the 60’s and 70’s you have to be able to change throughout the day easily. When evening comes again and those temperatures drop again, it’s a snap to layer it all up again.
If it’s just a little cooler then….
If your fall isn’t too cool and you just need a little extra warmth, then a beautiful scarf might be all you need. These are great in that they also follow the trends this year to brighter colors (especially reds) and plaids. What a great and inexpensive way to update your wardrobe for the Fall of 2017! I must confess, I love scarves and have a whole drawer just for that purpose. Florals and plaids as well as plain colored ones fill my space. I have used these scarves in the fall and winter months, because I just love to add that punch of color when everything else is drab around me. It makes me happy! It also brightens up my dark winter coat with a punch and doubles as a covering for my head if it should start to s n o w…..(sorry)
It’s a great time to start looking for those new pieces that will warm you up and make you happy at the same time. We can’t change the weather, so we might as well embrace the changes and be prepared.
So many choices to keep you nice and toasty and help you cuddle up to Fall and Winter!
