Trendy Teacher: Layering

Good morning!

Living in Florida, many times my wardrobe can have me in quite a predicament.  In the early "winter" our temperatures in the morning average between 50-55 degrees, which is chilly to me, and our afternoon highs average about 75-80 degrees, which is quite warm.

Being a teacher, I am in and out of the classroom all day, on the playground for recess around noon and in the car line/parking lot at the end of the day.  I have keep myself warm in the morning, comfortable around noon and cool in the afternoon. 

I have found the best way  to do this is to layer.  Many times I just sacrifice my legs, and accept the fact that they will be goosebump ridden for a little while first thing in the morning, and concentrate on keeping my upper body warm.

Today, I started off with a scarf, cardigan and long sleeve shirt.  As it warms up, I'm sure I will be taking it all off (well, not all off) so I'm not sweating up a storm at 3pm on the hot asphalt. 

Layering is also a great way to bring a "pop" of color to any outfit.  Enjoy!

Happy Friday!
