GF, I envy you living in a climate with that option. I was just realizing that when true winter comes around, there is almost nothing from other seasons that I can wear. Anything woven is just too chilly on top. ( As in, the fabric itself feels cold against my skin, not that the fabric doesn't keep me warm enough -- that goes without saying. I mean even as a layer under a heavy sweater or blazer, it doesn't work for me.)
I will soon be putting all the wovens and silkies in the hard-to-reach parts of the closet and keeping only the super-warms close to hand.
I have a velvet top with short sleeves that I realize has almost no season. I don't like the way it looks with a long-sleeved layer beneath, and when it's warm enough for short sleeves, it's too warm for velvet. Hmm. No wonder it was in that consignment shop.
