Spring Sweaters vs. the Heat!

It's springtime!

My goal is to wear my 3/4-sleeve sweaters and scarves as often as possible because it's getting pretty hot, already. By the time summer gets here, I'll be roasting in these clothes and they are my favorites!

It was one of those days when I had several errands to run and though I liked the extra touch of having the scarf, I was rethinking it about halfway through the afternoon.

What are you wearing this spring? Are you feeling the heat yet where you are?

Warm Autumn:“This woman never pretends. She won’t say something just to flatter you unless she believes it to be true. She cries harder than anyone at a funeral. She is fiercely loyal to her family but will not spare them hard work or spoil them with extravagance. She may seem to absorb a lot of demands but when she draws the line at enough, everyone knows it.” ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints

Deep Autumn:"Sensible and straightforward as all Autumns, but direct in speech, and quick to absorb change with good evidence, they speak honestly and bluntly. What I love most, I believe, is that they are not one bit threatened or defensive about new ideas. The person may demonstrate more of Winter’s reserve, or more of Autumn’s passive and natural way, but there is always an element of fire." ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints

  1. Yes, I am feeling the heat (in Central Florida), Jeanine. I do the same thing with my scarves - by lunchtime I am moving them around! You look wonderful and thanks for sharing your outfit with Visible Monday.

    1. Oh wow, I bet you are, Patti! Thanks!! I loved your outfit, too, and wish I could dare to go bare with my tank dresses and tops, but I truly dare not.

  3. You always manage to look both elegant and comfortable -- that is another great outfit you have on today.

    I also love 3/4 sleeve sweaters and can wear them pretty much year-round here (Washington State -- where we are still waiting for some warm weather).

    1. Thanks!! Ann, I envy you your wait for warmth. I already feel like I have far too much of it here in GA. And I love them, too, so that would be great, to be able to wear them all year. I know when it has become too hot, because I start noticing the sleeve on my arm, and it begins to feel confining.

  4. I agree with Debbi, you look wonderful in your colours Jeanine. There is no springtime here in Eastern Canada yet unfortunately even though we had a few unseasonably warm days a week or so ago. Everyone was wearing shorts and sandals which were quickly packed away again. Maybe next month . . .

    1. Aww, thanks, Heather! LOL, how funny to have a day or two of shorts weather and then go back to cold. Yes, I hope it gets warmer for you next month.

  8. I'm a huge fan of scarves too and will wear them as long as the weather permits...fortunately it's not too warm here yet. And when things do start to heat up, I usually switch to wearing linen ones.

    1. Hi Chandra! I just bought a linen scarf for when it gets hot, so I know what you mean. Even then, though, sometimes in the dead of summer, I just can't get myself to wear one.

      Sometimes I take a picture of me wearing one, but then take it off before I leave the house. Somehow, having that picture makes me feel almost like I really did wear it, LOL!
