Climate Change

Fall in DC has been much milder than its midwest counterpart--at this time last year I couldn't imagine having bare legs, but the high for today is 65 and I'm going to take advantage of it. At some point, I'm sure I'll get soft and a 50-degree morning will feel really chilly. Then I'll start to look like everyone else, bundled in pea coats and scarves. But until I grow soft and easily-chilled in the mild DC climate, I'll milk my recently-relocated-from-a-colder-climate strength and skip tights a few more times.

This is such a cute outfit! I just thrifted a maroon skirt yesterday & didn't even think of pairing it with a blue shirt but I like it!

wildchild said...

This outfit is adorable! I love the color combination.

Cristi said...

That skirt and shirt combo is great and I love the colors together. I wish I could show some bare legs this week but it snowed. Glad you are enjoying some great weather.

Rachel Kaylynn said...

Great color combo!

Nicole said...

I love those colors!

Valerie said...

Rock those bare legs as long as possible! Tights are fun, but I always like to wait as long as humanly possible before breaking them out. Love the color combo here!

Lauren (PetiteOnAPenny) said...

Gorgeous and rich color combo--love it! Might copy it. :)

Jul said...

I love this look, so feminine and comfortable! I also like the colour scheme ;)

Enjoy it while it lasts!Here in California the cold has arrived and bare legs is not a really good idea unless you want to freeae your whoha off.lol

I've lived in DC for 3 years now, but I spent the 22 years before that in Pittsburgh, PA. In case you're not familiar, Pittsburgh is typically grey, cold, and wet. Needless to say, DC weather hasn't lost its novelty to me yet. It makes me laugh when I see people pulling out parkas and mittens when the weather hits 50 degrees meanwhile I'm wondering if I REALLY need to wear a hoodie or if I'll be okay without.

Wait until it snows here; everything closes. It's amazing!

I am SO in love with this outfit!

BiblioMOMia said...

Remember when I said you wouldn't be wearing a jacket until after Thanksgiving? And that you'd laugh at all of us in the "cold"? Yeah. That.

Love the pink and burgundy, especially with the dose of blue.

Penny said...

very sweet cardigan!so envy of your bare feet also!i m finding myself in the opposite situation- having to dress heavier than others because I cannot bear the cold :)

Dorien said...

I adore the colours in this outfit! The burgundy and blue are such a pretty match!

Loren said...

Temperatures in the fall always seem so much colder than the same temperatures in spring. I'm a big pansy and would be one of those bundled up people. This outfit is adorable though. Love the color combos.

Terri said...

I thought the same thing when I first moved here. I'm originally from Kansas, and we had four very easily-distinguishable seasons. Here, there are really long springs and really long falls. Enjoy!

Love love love this color combo, especially the pops of gold. As a midwest girl myself, I'm looking forward to a much milder winter in DC!
I can't believe I haven't found your blog until now! I'm going to read back quite a bit, it looks great!

Kate said...

Hey! I've been meaning to tell you that your style is impeccable! This outfit - another great example. P.S. Muchas gracias for the long sweater post - I've been resisting buying them because I didn't know how to wear them - now I do. :)

Hannah said...

I love the colors of this outfit! So cute! I totally agree with taking advantage of the weather. In NC however, it's a little colder, so that's odd. But if I could wear my skirts without tights, I totally would. :)

Soooo love this!

the other emily said...

Ha! You are much hardier than I am, I reach for tights as soon as it drops below 70! I guess I'm just a product of your new environment through-and-through. :)

I really love the ways you're making bold color combinations feel perfectly seasonal these days - these kinds of rich jewel-tones tempered with pastels and neutrals look amazing.

Mommyblogger said...

This is a cute ensamble! I love the color combo & the cardi. Your braver than me though, I would have so been sporting legwear. I freeze when it drops below 80!

kb said...

enjoy your recently relocated toughness now ;) i used to go out in 5 degrees and feel OK. now when 60 hits i scramble for a sweatshirt!

2ndhandknowledge said...

Oh, brrr! I'm just a couple hours south of you, but the mornings are SO cold, I can't bear to leave the house with bare legs! I am in the mountains, though (valley, to be more specific), so maybe it's colder here.

Bad Taste Toast said...

Oooh I'm in love with the colour palette of your outfit, especially the pops of gold! Gorgeous look!

Laura said...

Tania, just wait until your first D.C. spring! I grew up in Buffalo, NY, where there is no spring to speak of...it snows til late March, then it melts, and then things turn green around June.

My first spring in D.C. was a wonder! It's sunny in March and there are gorgeous flowering trees (and not just the famous cherry blossoms!) You can wear sandals starting in April! After 8 years here, spring is still hands-down my favorite time in D.C.

Sorcha said...

Those flats are gorgeous. There's really no outfit that couldn't do with a little more gold :)

I would take advantage of it too! You know it won't last. Or it will be 40 next week, and then 65 again. :) You look so cute - and I love these colors together! Makes me want to get more cute skirts.

Hannah said...

I love the color of your skirt! It's gorgeous.

The winters in DC totally crack me up. I remember my first winter here it was about 65F outside and I was waiting for the bus wearing a short-sleeve shirt and jeans. The woman next to me was wearing a fleece jacket, gloves, a scarf, and earmuffs. Earmuffs! In 65 degree weather!! LOL. But I am sad to say that spending a few years here has made me soft. I even broke out my winter coat this week. Oh the shame.

Caterine said...

I love the skirt and blouse, and pretty much the WHOLE combination! :) lovely put together.

laura--i can't wait! i recited your entire comment for christopher; i'm thrilled by the thought of spring that comes before may.

Ani said...

Love this outfit! Jealous of the weather in D.C. We're still stuck in the 80's in Texas.
