One of the beauties of living in the Northeast is the change of seasons.
We get to experience them all.
The downfall of this, of course, is an excessive wardrobe of clothing designed for different seasons. That might mean extra shoes and boots, hats, jackets, sweaters etc. Realistically, you need to be prepared for all sorts of weather changes. In my area, we could get snow in early October and it can linger into May, if we’re unlucky.
At the same time, we could have a winter where we’re wearing shorts and a sweatshirt in December.
I’ve dealt with both.
I guess that’s why I have always chuckled when I hear about normally warm-weather states getting a bout of winter and how things just stop. Then you see photos of people outside in spring clothes, playing in snow.
It makes me shake my head, that’s for sure.
But I am not sure I have a favorite for the winter seasons. I have things I like to wear, sure, but it’s more because it makes me warm. And, as I know, being warm in arctic temperatures can be a wonderful thing.
I guess I’d have to choose two things, then.
One of my winter hats – because of it being one of those ones with the ear flaps (which makes it easier to wear with glasses, and being I wear glasses) and my Guinness scarf. I have a couple of scarves that are fantastic and made for me, as well, but the Guinness one is a cool one, for obvious reasons. Though I tend to wear others more than this one.
In the end, I’m not concerned about how I look most of the time with clothing – as long as I am warm!
