The weather has been very confusing lately but summer is here at last…well sort of! The challenge for us ladies though is how to dress well for an occasion when the weather is so changeable.
I went to an outdoor house party one summer looking all pretty in light summer-wear but the weather changed unexpectedly. I was so cold that I couldn’t move. I remember asking the host (whom I didn’t know that well) for a jacket. I didn’t care about the colour or size…i was way too cold to be pretty and all I wanted was some warmth! Lesson learnt…so, to avoid the chance of ruining your day/night out because you are too cold, my advice is to dress for the unexpected. Here are some fashion clothing that could be useful:Blazers and Cropped Jackets: Blazers are great with whatever outfit you might be wearing. You can dress them up…or down. Try throwing a nice blazer or a smart jacket on top of whatever outfit you’re wearing and you will not only look amazingly stylish but you’ll also be warm.Scarfs and shawls: You may recall my post about winter blankets, well, they can be quite handy during the ‘Irish summers’ too. Scarfs and shawls are great as accessories, especially when you don’t want to carry a jacket around. Despite being lightweight, they are also useful when temperatures drops.Coats and rain jackets: I have to admit there was one day last week it suddenly turned so cold that I had to reach for my tucked away winter coat. Remember, you can always wear your lightweight summer outfit underneath.Whatever you decide to wear for the occasion, just make sure that you feel cozy and that it is weather proof!
