Transitioning to fall when you live in Houston isn’t easy. At the last minute we took a quick trip to Minnesota this past weekend. We left on Friday morning and got home on Sunday night. It was so good to see my family. Distance is really hard, especially for this girl that is very family oriented. I’ve been away from them for periods of time before, but it never gets easier. In fact, I think it might get harder.
When we stepped out of the airport on Friday, the first thing I said was “Oh my gosh, its cold!!” I was decked in my “Houston Fall Attire.” Which means jeans, flats, and a 3/4 sleeve top. I don’t think it got out of the 50s while we were there. No, I take that back, it got colder at night. :)
I grew up in Colorado. I lived there from 5-17y/o. Snow was normal, and gorgeous fall leaves that transitioned from green to bright orange and fiery red were something everyone always looked forward to. I was so excited to see that again! As we were coming in for a landing I just kept going on and on about how gorgeous all the trees were. And then on the drive to their house, and in their neighborhood… Fall is my favorite season of the year, especially if I’m not in Houston, and somewhere more north. (heh, anywhere is more north than Houston!)
But here in Houston, transitioning your wardrobe for fall isn’t easy! You have to do LIGHT layers. Not heavy ones, very light ones. A thin top, and sweater. If its a 3/4 sleeve sweater, that’s probably best.
So how about you? Where do you live, and if you’re in a southern state, what are your must have’s for transitioning to fall?
