Fashion confused

I love Fall (or Autumn if you prefer). It's a great time of year. There are overlap seasons though. There should be a name for the seasons that are between the 4 seasons. Right now it's mid November but it is 80 degrees (Indian Summer?). It's funny to go to public places and see how everyone is dressed. Some people dress for November. They picked up their new sweater and leather jacket in August and couldn't wait any longer to wear them. They're out in turtlenecks and jeans and have got to be uncomfortable. Some people dress for the temperature and are out in shorts and t-shirts. It's funny to get them in the same place. I wonder if they know how awkward they look together. If anyone snaps a good secret picture of fashion confused people please send them to me so I can post. stlstuff at sbcglobal dot net

I probably am falling into that awkward "dressing too warm for the weather" category. I, too, bought some cute sweaters a couple of weeks ago, and couldn't wait to wear them. Fortunately, our offices are pretty chilly during the in-between seasons, so I was able to rationalize it using the following mantra: "It's 80 outside, but only 65 inside!" Of course, I had to put my AC on when driving home, but I sure looked darn-tootin' cute in the office and wasn't shivering away like the rest of those schmucks!

I guess I'll close with the standard fashion advice: Dress in layers!
