So if your fall wardrobe is actually a summer wardrobe, tell me what your winter wardrobe is like. There is a chance it matches up with our fall wardrobe.

And how hot does it get there in the summer .

It was over 95 degrees for more than 116 days (so far) in 2013.

My "winter" wardrobe is the exact same as my spring/summer/fall wardrobe.

I miss having to dress for warmth and I get really excited when the temp dips below 70 so that I can put on boots.

WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!. That's hotter than my home town in tropical south India. I struggle with the heat exhaustion every time I visit my hometown. The only thing that saves me is A/C and plenty of fresh coconut water.

I would most certainly die of heat stroke where you live.

Wait a minute, even in Southern Arizona, winters range between 40-65 F. You would need a sweatshirt in January to stay comfortable. That's typical fall like weather here in NJ.

Engineering courses at Rutgers are quite difficult. It is mandatory work hard and spend time on the material taught if you want to get an A or B+.
Doesn't really matter what the time is spent on. If you don't have it, you don't really worry about shopping for clothes unless something gets ruined or lost. At least I don't.

My gosh, do people really overhaul their wardrobes all that often? In my case, ESPECIALLY with fall and winter clothing, I buy a few new pieces each year but I have some pieces I've literally had for more than a decade. In fact, one of my favorite pieces is a vintage jacket that I've had for thirty years, and I think it's from the fifties.

I really like classic looks though. Some things seem to never go out of style. I just got a vintage necklace in the mail from eBay today - a cluster of bronze fall leaves with a piece of some sort of iridescent stone nestled inside of them like a little acorn. I think it dates from the forties. It will look GREAT with a jacket and some jeans! In fact, here it is:

I love vintage stuff, especially this time of year!

That's what you get for moving to snow country!

I do like tights; I like to wear skirts and dresses all year. I have some nice lined boots that look nice with tights and a skirt.

People seem to make assumptions that I spend too much time shopping. In reality, I don't spend much time in the shop at all. Mid August is typically the freest time of the year for me, and during that time, I stock up on essential fall clothing.

My mom really likes shopping for clothes, so I tell my mom a couple (4-5) items I need to have this fall. She looks at sale papers and requests me to come with her to the shop during a particular weekend in August ( typically, prices for fall apparel are lowest during that time of the year). That day, I pick and choose what I want to wear for this season and TADA !!!! revised wardrobe is ready.

I don't do much seasonal shopping but I DO hit the after season sales and just put things up for next year. Then it's like Christmas in October the next year! Last year I got a pair of Born boots - awesome, awesome tall boots in a distressed gray leather and they're GORGEOUS - for $16 and they were normally $230! You can bet that I can hardly wait to wear them! In fact, I got several pairs of really gorgeous leather boots on clearance last year and the year before. WOOHOOOOOO!
