It’s winter, it’s summer, and it’s winter again…all in a quick 24 hours. I left my house this morning in a skirt and boots- my legs were a little cold, and I was grateful for my jacket. By noon I was sweating and wished I wore sandals. This roller-coaster is a regular occurrence for me in spring, which somehow feels like all the seasons, all at once. Spring is the most opportune time for transitional pieces- those that can be worn while the weather figures itself out. For example: felt hats, which really have a very small window of wear-ability. Wearing anything felt in the summer is a ridiculous notion, and in the winter it is just too cold to fathom anything on my head other than a toque (beanie-for Aussies) or the hood of my parka.
About the look:
This outfit is the epitome of transitional dressing. Firstly, the skirt and bootie combination keeps my feet warm and toasty, while my legs feel the breeze. Don’t worry, my knees can handle it, and so can yours. To round it out, the top I’m wearing is perfect for the bipolar weather. It’s a turtleneck tank top, which is pretty much an oxymoron unto itself but manages to solve any “am I hot/am I cold”-conundrums. If you’re generally a cold person (physically, not emotionally) pair it with a leather jacket and call it a day.
