When relentless rain falls, but we have a dinner date, I dress in something dark to throw it in the wash later. It is nearly impossible to get the splashback stains out of light-colored pants, so I never wear them on days with wet weather. I do wear white jeans throughout the year on sunny days. The fabric weight is what we should consider when deciding whether an item is appropriate.
I have a personal cut off time for carrying straw bags and wearing thong sandals. I don’t wear shorts or sundresses, but if I did, those would also be put away until next summer. When September comes, those items suddenly seem inappropriate. I am ready to embrace layers, darker colors, closed-toe shoes, and leather bags.
