Long time no chat. I finished my midterms, went on spring break, and got a bomb tan(pictures are coming)! While I was on break the weather on campus was warmer than the beach weather. Unfortunately, a few days after my return spring disappeared. With nightly temperatures in the late 30s and daytime temperature in the high 40s, my shorts and sandals were stored away again. Now I’m back in coats and boots and layering clothes.
Over the next few days the weather will be warming up again, but the mornings will still be quite cold. That is where the importance of layers will come in for me. As a native Floridian I didn’t grow up layering clothes like my mom did, so have spent a lot of time figuring what works best for my slender and petite frame. Being able to add or remove layers with ease with the changing temperature throughout the day or even in the office is key to making sure you are at your optimal comfort level during the day.
The Art of Layering Clothes
This is next layer that adds a boost. You might want fleece, merino wool, polyester. A crew neck sweatshirt is what I wore on this given day. It is lightly lined with fleece which gives me extra warmth without the bulk. If for some reason I was in a building with the heat blazing, I could easily remove my mid layer and still look presentable.
I feel that this can be applied to almost any climate or region with tweaks. It helps with this odd transition time of the year because nobody likes to be cold one minute then hot the next.
