We are heading into transition weather in Washington D.C.
Time to remind myself of previous advice!
The general principles that I have previously published are these:
When the weather does not match the date on the calendar, dress for the weather, BUT use color or fabric to align yourself with the date.*
For those of you scratching your heads, here is an illustration.
It’s March. We’ve had days approaching 70 degrees and days in the 40s. And nights in the 30s.
So, dark colors still make sense, as do long sleeves, but some days call for lighter weight fabrics. Here, I am wearing a cotton voile tank over a cotton voile blouse with corduroys. The black cords will probably be put away on April 1.
You may have noticed that I am wearing three shades of black?
A final word regarding unpredictable spring weather: It’s better to be toasty than seasonally-forward (or even seasonally-appropriate) in March.
I like winter, but I don’t like being cold.
Have a fantastic weekend!

* Let’s see whether my advice has been consistent over the years. Here’s what I said in 2015, 2016, and 2018.
