Such a tease.

Mother Nature is such a tease.

IMG_0839The tiny, shimmering hope of fall keeps being dangled in front of my eyes - then slowly ripped away.

I simply can not do this anymore. The temptation is too much.

The answer? Layering. The answering is always layering.

Most people have 'summer' and 'winter' clothes. They swap the contents of their closet with the changing of the season. Not me.I consider my entire collection of clothing to be constantly in transition. What makes this possible, you may ask? Sundresses with sweaters. Shorts with long sleeve blouses. Really, a myriad of looks that some may consider out of bounds - but not me.

So this look, one of my coolest summer dresses paired with my favorite chilly weather cardigan, is a perfect example of how I like to layer.

Constant transition. Such is life.
