I never know what to wear this time of the year
It’s getting colder, but it’s not really cold, if you know what I mean. Or maybe you don’t. What I mean is that while it’s clearly autumn, and definitely cold enough to wear a (slightly) warmer coat or a jacket, it’s way too soon to be wearing a wool pullover. Or gloves.
Although I have to admit that we’ve had a few days when I wished I had gloves… Yes, it’s definitely getting colder. And whatever I’m wearing, it’s always the wrong thing: I’m either freezing or getting sweaty.
Maybe I’m just menopausal…
Anyway, that’s why I feel that all my outfits are an odd mix of this and that. Because I don’t know what to wear in this weather, that is, not because I’m menopausal…
Take this outfit, for example: I wanted to wear something easy-going and casual. And I wanted to test drive my new pair of mirrored sunglasses. So, my old pair of slouchy drawstring denim trousers (which are basically just pyjama bottoms you can wear in public) with a simple lightweight top should do the trick. But then I had to find outerwear that would be warm enough yet not so warm that it would make me sweat. And the only thing I have that fits the bill was the good old camo jacket. But does it go with the rest of the outfit?
Who cares, I have errands to run and places to be; I don’t have time to think about every detail.
This is what happens when you spend too much time at home: you sense of style is seriously compromised, and you start thinking that wearing loungewear everywhere is not just socially acceptable but trendy, too…

Do you find weather-appropriate dressing challenging?
