I enjoy dressing up. And in the casual So Cal, I often feel out of place. But I learned not to pay attention to what people think of me, nor to let that change me. After all, it is about how I feel and so I choose to dress up for myself - to make myself feel good.
It's warm here. Warm like we're in the middle of the summer. And, honestly, I'm not complaining too much. I don't like the cold and I don't like having to heat our apartment - yes, we need to do that even if we live in So Cal.
So today, I decided to stop fighting it and celebrate the long-lasting summer days we've been having here. Did I mention I'm not ready for fall, like, really not ready? October caught me off-guard for sure. I mean Halloween is just around the corner, Thanksgiving is not that far away... should I continue?
Just because fall is here (more or less), it doesn't mean that we have to layer up. Thankfully, it's been pretty nice and warm and that has allowed a slower transition into the colder days, whenever those decide to come.
I have to be honest, I have a hard time dressing up once the temperatures drop. Living in So Cal, there's not much of a need for warmer clothes and so my fall/winter wardrobe is somewhat limited. However, because of milder weather here, we can take our summer clothes into any season.
