Where's my sun?

The sun has disappeared. It's cold. I'm sad. In addition to sad, I also have an, er, erm..."condition". This is a "condition" that plagues me at the start of winter each and every year, without fail. I develop clothes dyslexia. Yes. Clothes Dyslexia. I am unable to figure out what matches with what as I haul all of my winter clothes from the back of the closet to the front, and bid farewell to my summer stock. After 7 months of easy warm weather wear, I simply cannot figure out how the winter layering works and what goes with what. This "condition" can be tricky to manage and leaves me looking as though I have dressed myself in the dark. It is hazardous to my buoyancy and makes me want to hide out until winter is over, with my duvet cover over my head, and by bedroom door locked, for good measure. Luckily it only takes me about a week or two to develop full winter wear fluency...until the next time. Since I am still dealing with my "condition", I share with you some before pics of an outfit I wore over the December holidays. It’s actually a top but since I am also vertically challenged, I can get away with wearing it as a dress.
