Transitional weather is the very best. One of the most prominent items in the pro column of my running Is It Fun to Live in Iowa? list is the fact that we get to experience each one of the four seasons in its most quintessential form. Snow-covered winters, impossibly fertile springs filled with all manner of blooming things, blazing hot and uncomfortably humid summers, and, of course, resplendent autumns with actual tractors on the side of the road harvesting actual corn.
Besides the Flaming June-orange leaves currently erupting in my backyard and the flocks of tiny birds eagerly picking the last of this summer’s berries off of the bushes outside my window, I’m particularly enjoying the rash of 60-degree weather we’ve been having. I love being able to transition my favorite warm-weather skirt, marked with breezy micropleats, to a slightly cozier look by supplementing the outfit with an all-purpose military vest and the newest addition to my rapidly growing faux fur collection.
Clarabelle’s lucky—she gets to wear real fur all year ’round.
