Temps in the 60s? Where's my scarf?




I hate getting dressed for work this time of year, and I know I'm not alone.

It's just not fair. The stores beckon with cutie-patootie cardigans and bangin' boots, but here in Florida we sweat just looking at them. We are stuck with the same old sleeveless shirts and sandals that we've been wearing since April.

But wait! This just in! For a couple days this week, the morning temps around Tampa Bay will drop into the low, gasp, 60s!!

Okay, so that doesn't exactly make it time to break out the wool, but it should offer those of us with cooler climate wardrobe tastes a brief respite from our summer wardrobes. This break in the heat would be a good time to try out leggings or to twist a light-weight scarf around your neck. Maybe throw on a thin boyfriend sweater, or wrap a pashmina around your shoulders.

Don't get too carried away. The daily highs on Wednesday and Thursday will still reach the 80s, so you'll probably be ready to shed that fall jacket by lunchtime.
