Summer is almost over. The students are back to school and very soon we will be saying "hello" to the fall season and to thicker clothing.
I live in the Sunshine State of Florida where the snowbirds flock during the cold months of the year. Nevertheless, as I have experienced last year, the fall and, especially, winter, were freezing months even in the Sunshine State. Having come from the tropics, I was not very much prepared with my wardrobe so that I had to do frequent trips to the store to buy thick stockings, sweaters, long-sleeve blouses. Very soon, I will have to "resurrect" my fall/winter wardrobe to prepare for the arrival of the cold season.
When I started working, I have been wearing to the office either a coat, sweater or a blazer because of the freezing atmosphere inside our building. Everytime I go shopping, I love buying women's sweaters that I can wear to work but trendy to be worn for after-office activities. When I was working in court back in the Philippines, I would stick to blazers for outer office wear. Here, I stick mainly to knits which usually come in fashionable designs and which I can wear for after-office socials.
