The weather is the judge for me. As long as it's still warm and nice, I'm good to go with shorts, sandals, etc, but by the end of September (early/late, depending on the weather), my short and sandal wearing days are done, as I enjoy getting back into pants/warmer/dressier attire.

Never. Lol, I live in FL.

Oh, how Floridian women envy those amazing fall outfits! Earthy tones, boots scarves and berets, light kidskin gloves...

Nah, here, it's (for me) long skirts and a tank top.

I work with dogs, and it's too hot to wear pants and because of my age and size, the only shorts that fit me are NOT age appropriate (45, size 5 jr with a 34" inseam so basically, I look like a hooker in shorts so I don't wear em).

The long skirts keep the mosquitoes from eating me alive and the dogs from scratching my legs up, and there's a lot of air flow.

But, no, we don't change into those gorgeous fall outfits and are truly jealous, lol

Oh how I miss some of my fall/winter outfits, not so much the winter weather, but some of the different types of clothing, I so long to swap out for ever so often.

Mostly these days, I just switch up some of my patterns and colors starting in the fall and will occasionally wear pants on days the temps get below 70's when the temps really dip, I'll add my sweaters.

When I lived up north NY/NJ, I did the traditional change over in Sept. it was how I was taught, wasn't a big deal, was more out of habit.

Love your response. Earthy tones, boots, berets, kidskin gloves? Reminds me of years ago when living in Minnesota! Had some beautiful fall outfits. Now I'm living in very rural, high desert Southwest and wear nice clothes only when going to church or the "big city". Being retired, living on a ranch, it's casual most of the time.

I gradually phase them out through September, and stop wearing them sometime in October, depending on how warm/cold it is in October.

My first year in Florida and I am looking forward to not having to put on all those dull colored bulky sweaters and pants, socks, coats - love to be unconstricted and free.

Yup. Basically the only items that get retired are wool coats, tights and sweater dresses. And boots.


On an autocorrecting iDevice.

True in Texas too.

Okay so we do get "psuedo-winter" and that means, IF I am going to be outside most of the day, I can break out boots and scarves and hats and gloves.

If I am going to be inside, even if it is 40F out, forget it. Slightest temp drop here and every place turns the heat inside up to 80, so you only "need" the warm stuff to get from the car to the building.

So, wardrobe change for me basically means 1) the addition of boots and 2) the addition of a cardigan maybe, or a lightweight sweater

So sad.
