Hot and Cold


The fall season is great because it deals
with more layers, coats, and so much
more to choose from.
There's something about fall/winter fashion that I just love and I look forward to the months to pass by every year during the hot seasons. Just the thought of wearing more clothes and layers and cuddling up next to the fire during the winter comforts me. The spring and summer seasons do scream out fun and excitement with it's bright clothes, but there's even more fun during the colder months in my opinion.

Fall and winter allow me to enjoy wearing lots of clothes: trench coats, sweaters, long pants, cardigans, colored stockings, boots, gloves and so much more. There's just so many choices! I do like the idea of bearing my skin during the summer, but with a slight problem with eczema here and there, it's harder for me than an ordinary person to show my skin.

I have to admit that there are many times during the winter when I wish for the summer heat to hurry up and come and in the summer I just can't wait for the chilly days in December. Don't we all think that every now and then? So what do you prefer: hot or cold?

cold! The same reason why you like it. Especially here in NYC

M said...

thats exactly how I think! love S/S in the winter but F/W in the summer.
but im leaning towards fall collections. there's something about the coats and tights....

Thu said...

for the actual temperature, cold. i don't feel like doing anything when it's blazing hot. but i think i like summer clothes more. you're not always covered by a coat of some kind.

A la Femme said...

Is it possible to just say warm. I'll go for the spring, where you can mix clothes from both seasons!!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi there-I think you want what you haven't got!! I love summer sun, but not when its too hot you have to stay indoors!!

Boutique Girl said...

I prefer summer - we get way too much winter and its wet rather than cold! But I do have the lovely eczema problem too - I do find mine to be worse in winter with heating etc!

Imelda Matt said...

I'm not looking forward to bidding winter (and all my layers) farewell but then I can't wait for summer and hitting the beach!

Fashion Tidbits said...

layering is what i like to do when the weather gets chilly!

workthatwardrobe said...

I wish I loved winter. I start to feel depressed in autumn as the light closes in. The dark days make me feel claustrophobic. This year Will be different. I will think of all the clothes I can wear and embrace winter.

Z said...

perfect! thanks :)
p.s. I can't believe summer's over already... last winter was horrible, I hope its not the same this year, Even though we get to be pretty fashionable...

Trixy Tran said...

Cold! And definitely because of all those wonderful layers and winter accessories :]

I wish I could love winter like you... I guess spending 4 months a year in the Caribbean and the rest in California doesn't really help. I love the sun, and the cold makes me kind of sad. But then again, I was born in the tropics, I can't help loving hot days.

I like your blog, you are now on my faves!

I like the in-between seasons of spring and fall where there is a mixture of seasons and the weather is more mild. Thanks for the comment, and I would love to link exchange with you- I have already added you!

Dapper Kid said...

Totally love colder weather fashion wise, I looove layering. Plus I usually have colourful detailing in winter to brighten up my outfits. I think it gives you more of a chance to be creative too, because you don't have to worry about that one piece standing out so much, if you know what I mean?

JuliaFuentez said...

eummmm i think cold, but i also love hot, so i'm not sure ahahha

Make Do and Mend said...

A/W, Fall collections are the most fun and you can do more.

The Seeker said...

LOL funny I was thinking about that today.
I love summer, but I so love F/W clothes!!

Cheryl Lynn said...

I love the fall, spring and fall are my two favorite seasons, but fall is a major enjoyment for me, fashion-wise.

Can't wait!

The Seeker said...

That's ok dear, you do what makes you feel confortable.
I was just confirming :)

Thank you, babe! You really do have a great blog, and I'm linking you now! :)

I definitely prefer cold, by the way. LAYER ME UP!

Sara Millionaire said...

Thanks for your comment on my blog; I'd love to link up with you! As soon as I finish leaving this comment I'm going to take care of that.

I love fall and winter clothes, but like everyone else when it gets to be about February I'm ready to buy sandals and dresses. By the time July rolls around, though, I'm back to daydreaming about cold-weather clothes. My looks lends itself better to tights, boots, and layers than it does to bare looks, so even though I love the carefree feeling of summer dressing, fall is ultimately my season.

Fashion Critic said...

Fashion Addict, thanks a lot for featuring my blog.

I am glad you like my site and are sharing it with your readers.

Love your site too. FC x

Sasha said...

I definitely think about summer when it's winter and vice versa. Can't help it, I guess! But winter is definitely more fun in the way that you can wear more clothing pieces and therefore, have more compliments!

vipgal said...

definitely cold!! oh so many options!!! and no flies/mosquitos/open pores prone to pimples and the discomfort after being out for so long with sticky sunscreen

Sarah said...

I like dressing up for cold weather, I just don't like cold weather!

But in Singapore, there's just hot, damp, sticky... not much variety here sadly. Boo!

enc said...

I don't prefer one over the other, I like them both equally. I'm sorry to hear of your skin woe. :(

RANIA said...

i'd love to (:

KiKi said...

thats why i love fall because its both

The Clothes Horse said...

I prefer hot weather but cool clothes. If I could just lounge all day, then definitely warm days.

karen said...

Hello! Thank you, I love your blog as well.

I say I love hot weather and vacation, but that all depends because now I am wishing the fall would come already, I'm tired of summer wardrobe and can't wait to layer!

Dang said...

Yay! Thankies for the jolly comment! I'd love to trade links, I'll add you to my blogroll right now!

MizzJ said...

Hate the cold weather, but love the clothes for it. I think it's more a grass is greener on the other side thing? I know come January I"ll be pining for sundresses and flip-flops again. Every season is great for fashion!

Grayburn said...

I love both but just like you, fall/winter a little more. The accessories can be bigger and more layers mean more choices for textures, colors and shapes. Possibilities are endless!

roxanne said...

hot! i recently did a post about how i need to put the brakes on and stop wishing for fall, because summer is truly my favorite season, both personally and sartorially.

~Jay~ said...

Thanks for the comment{: i wuld love 2 link!

LCL said...

I totally agree with cold weather
bundling up with hot cocoa and a fire appeal to me more than sweating it out on a beach

ramona.mia said...

you have a great blog goin' on here as well, we are more than glad to share links, we just added you. ramonas love the cold weather, nothing better than that. As you've seen on our blog we've been going through some though sunny days. Layering is what gives life to an outfit, too bad we can't do that right now... we are just trying to take the best out of these hot days... ;)

love,

Wild Thyme said...

I enjoy both winter and summer clothes. I will admit though I find the rainy season hard on us girls maintaining a sexy and put together look. Really how sexy can umbrellas be?

lisa said...

I enjoy each season while it lasts--until the very end, that is, when the new merchandise in stores makes me wish the weather would change more quickly.

Nay'Chelle said...

I prefer cold because I feel there are a lot more things to creatively to warm yourself up than to cool yourself down.

Gala Gonzalez said...

thanks for popping in! nice nice blog!
yes defo im interested on blog link xchange! send me and email am_lul@live.com xoxo

Debbie Shiamay said...

Hey girl... id love to Xchange links with u! Great blog!

Sal said...

Cold all the way. Like you, I change my mind about that mid-March, when the MN winter has slogged on for what seems like endless months ... but I'm just happier and more comfortable in my fall and winter clothes. I like being covered, prudish as that sounds!

star anise said...

I have to say that I love fall fashion. Tights, layering, knit sweaters. But hate the rain. Proenza Schouler definitely has a gorgeous fall collection coming...

Fashionstyle said...

I love the sun and i love the snow...so...I love my clothes anytime!!

sunset said...

Though I do appreciate the style summer allows, it gets to be VERY limited after a while. And f/w just holds so many possibilities with the magic of layers! So definitely a cold girl here.

And your title reminds me of Katy Perry! :)
