How to Layer & Prepare for Unpredictable Weather

October 06, 2014

Happy Monday everyone! As the leaves are falling so are the temperatures here in New York. Since I'm usually out of my door for the majority of the day/night I've learned to prepare for whatever might bring. In an attempt to share with you my struggles of this unpredictable climate, here are my essentials for the uncertain weather and some tips to make the trek back to the dorms a little easier.

My first tip is the well known process called layering. This is one of the most effective ways to either stay warm or beat the heat. My typical layering outfit includes an undershirt or tank top or camisole, then a t shirt or blouse or long sleeve if it is supposed to be extra cold. Then on top of that I usually have at least one coat and usually a scarf.

One of the harder things to deal with is when you have to walk fifteen minutes in the freezing cold to class and by the time you get in there you've gotten a bit of a workout in and the heat is on full blast in the classroom. So now you're really thankful that you dressed in layers as you can now take all of them off, well not all of them.

An essential at this point in the game is to have a coat for the fall season. It's when a winter coat is too much and a wind breaker isn't enough. My number one spot to look for a heavier duty jacket is Target. I purchased mine there last year and it is by far my favorite. It's a longer coat with a zipper, snaps, draw strings, and a hood. Many other stores have great options to!

Another tip to avoid being uncomfortable from the weird weather is to carry a lip balm and a lotion in your backpack! The winds and temperature can drop very quickly drying out your skin in no time. It is very important to hydrate your lips and hands to prevent cracks and breaks and bleeding.

I hope these tips and ideas can help you prepare for the unpredictable weather and season! Planning ahead can save you time later! Thanks for reading and tell me your tips and tricks for preparing for the Autumn weather!
