Sure, we've now passed the mid-October mark, but the temperatures have been so clement that I would still literally be able to wear this late summer getup today. One of my favorite combos to don as the weather cools down is a long sleeve under shortalls, or just generally bare legs and covered arms. It's that magic weather sweet spot that the Northeast region just gets so well throughout the month of September, which has extended into October this year.
I'm conflicted about autumn's delayed arrival. Here's why.
While just like everyone else who hails from this geographic area, I'm longing to wear chunky knits and to sit cozily by a fire place with a glass of red wine. I'm dying to admire the changing foliage on brisk walks, followed by a hot toddy in a cavernous bar. I'm craving outfits composed of multiple layers and wrapping myself in thick blankets when I'm watching TV on my couch. Alas, this unusual warm temp is not allowing for of it, but I cannot fathom complaining about it being too hot when in a mere few months I know that we'll all be huffing and puffing about the cold, wishing for spring.
So I'm going to keep enjoying the warmth while we have it and wear things like long sleeves with bare legs... but once Halloween is over and I can finally shamelessly blast the Christmas carols, the mercury better start dropping!
