What to wear?

As a kid my dad taught me about the weather. I’d ask what’s the weather going to be like today. He would respond, about like yesterday. He was usually right. That method worked beautifully in California.

So, now here I am in Virginia. I think to myself: What’s the weather going to be like today. Well, about like yesterday. So I put on my sketchers (sans socks), grab a sweater, and run out the door. No, it is not about like yesterday. It’s COLD. By the end of the day, I couldn’t feel my numb little toes. Suzanne, my office mate, recommended I wear socks the rest of the year. She even offered to provide dressing advice via text if I so desired. Suzanne will let me know when it’s no longer sock weather, she assured me.

So today, I think to myself: What’s the weather going to be like today. Well, about like yesterday. I was mighty cold yesterday. I better wear my scarf. Suzanne comes into work. Looks at my desk where I have my scarf neatly folded. Is that a scarf? It is NOT scarf weather  yet. Socks, yes. Scarf, no. She was right, the scarf was a bit too much.

Maybe I need to take up her offer and start texting her my wardrobe conundrums before I leave the house.
