It’s no secret--we get a lot of rain in Oregon. That being said, we must prepare for all kinds of weather in the spring. We often get excited by the first signs of the end of winter, so we start moving things around in our closets to prepare for a shift of newly wearable attire. It is at about this time of year that I have had enough of my knits. So, I start throwing sweaters to the back of my closet and pulling out my lighter, more colorful clothes.
I have to be real here though. Just because we see the sun, doesn’t mean that we won’t see rain an hour later. So, we have to be prepared for just about anything. It isn’t uncommon anymore for us to have 65-degree sunny weather and a few days later it’s another snowpocalypse.
To battle the ever-changing environment, we practice with layers during this season. Guy is particularly good at this because he is an attorney, so he wears a suit paired with a variety of layers. For me, I have more flexibility in what I can wear, but I have to be able to move in my layers. I also have to be able to stay outside with my students during recess for a while, no matter the weather. This can be quite the challenge, so I must be thoughtful in my layering.
One of my favorite ways to stay prepared for whatever the sky above brings is to grab a denim jacket. This will keep me warm enough when the temperatures take a slight dip, but it’s light enough for a little sun. Another one of my favorite things to wear in the spring is a hat. This helps to protect me from a little bit of rain.
What are your favorite ways to layer?
