Trying to stay warm, but look “summery”

Today just an outfit post, may be a bit unusual because the weather has gotten bad. After a long time of warm to hot weather, the temperatures dropped to 53F (~12oC) today and the humidity increased. There was some urgently needed rain yesterday. However, whenever it is humid and not particularly warm, it feels sort of creepy. Moreover, there is some wind which chills even more.

It feels already like Fairbanks typically feels in August. In August, we typically have a lot of rain and often temperature of this order of magnitude. I am not ready yet to give up on summer. Thus, I am wearing a cardigan as sweater (it is dressier than a long sleeve T-shirt) and a red suede skirt to look a bit “summery”. I still refuse to wear tights or pantyhose, but I have to make sure not to stay outside too long to not get goose bumps.

I still have many ideas for summer outfits. Thus, I hope the summer will last just a little bit longer to try these ideas out this year and not to have to postpone them to the next.
