Falling for fall fashion?



cardigan.jpegThis time of year, my calender and thermostat throw down. Stores are stocking all the pretty, thick sweaters that are hot for fall. But in Florida, it just looks hot. Should a Sunshine State gal:

a) Buy sweaters (short-sleeve, vest styles) and crank up the AC?
b) Defiantly keep wearing white after Labor Day?
c) Find everything lightweight and brown in my closet and declare it Florida fall?

Traditionally, my answer has been C. But this year, I think fall in the tropics deserves more creativity. If I must continue to suffer the heat and humidity, at least I should enjoy my wardrobe.

Consider that I haven't gotten nearly enough use this summer out of a white sundress. So rather than banishing it to the back of my closet next week, I plan to keep it in circulation. Maybe I'll exchange the coral shrug I used to pair with it for an indigo cardi.

What's your style solution for Florida fall?
