I have no clue how to dress with the weather in Chicago. I don't listen or watch anything about the weather and I am getting shafted because of it. When I didn't work in Chicago, it didn't matter what I wore because I lived like 6 blocks away and it just wasn't a big deal. Now, that I work in Chicago it is something I should probably start thinking about.
Today, for example, I wore a skirt...it is windy, like tornado windy...and I am giving peep shows every 45 seconds! The other day it was raining and I wore a white shirt so it was more like a wet t-shirt contest than professional dress! I wear all black on days that are 90 degrees and climbing. Then the next day I wear a sleeveless shirt and it's like 40 degrees out. I never have an umbrella, a jacket or a sweater. I refuse to pack extra clothes, just in case...or to even wear a jacket if it's not necessity (I hate coats and jackets). I don't think that watching or listening to the weather is going to help either, because they are dead wrong most days.
So, how is it that I am the only one in Chicago who is never prepared for the weather? Does everyone else have some sort of weather radar that tells them what to wear and bring each day?
