Daily Outfit: Cloudy with a Chance of Rain

So, yesterday started off rainy, overcast and cool.  The rain chance for the rest of the day was high, so I figured it would be the perfect day to break out a handknit sweater, summer scarf, and my wellies. Temperature wise, this outfit was perfect for my ever-chilly office.


But the rainy weather only lasted til about 10:00am.  And the it became sunny, bright, and really, oppressively hot.  And while I did have a pair of sandals to change into, I did not bring a backup in case the sweater became too warm.  I was comfy in my office, but I was sweltering outside.  Note to self: Never think that you know what Florida weather will do – always bring a back-up outfit.


Even though it got way too hot, I’m still glad I dug out my sweater.  I’ve only worn it once since I finished it in March, and it felt nice to give it some free time out of the closet.

    I LOVE the green and purple together!! I saw it last night when you linked to your Weardrobe page and thought “when did she wear that? But I LOVE IT!” and now I know! I love how the purple in the scarf pulls out the pattern in the wellies, too.
