Non Summer

Thursday, February 2, 2012

I have lived in Los Angeles for almost 2 years, and I have learned that we only get two seasons here; summer & non-summer. summer runs from March-October and non-summer is the rest of the year. The only real difference I can figure out is that retailers sell a ton of cold weather garments during non-summer and it rains about 5 times in those months. Other than that, L.A. has pretty much a year round season of awesomeness! Now I am not trying to brag, but merely explaining to those of you who may be wondering why on earth am I wearing a sun dress in February?

I feel for all of you fighting the bitter cold and bolstering snow, but her in Southern California its a whopping 70 degrees. I still feel like I'm on vacation on a tropical island, it literally never gets below 60 degrees here, ever! Wait.... I think it snowed for like 8 minutes last year in Burbank.

Amongst other benefits of year round great weather, I am able to blog about any article of clothing I own, except a down jacket... So today I am taking advantage of the non-summer weather and throwing on an old dress. I have had this dress for a few years now and I still get compliments every time I wear it. If you are hunkered up in a cold dark climate right now, I hope my post brings you warmth and hope that your summer is right around the corner :)

I do miss the cold sometimes, but I get over that pretty quickly
