Overdressed.

Erik Engstrom

Sometimes I overdress. 

Here in the Midwest it isn't uncommon to think winters are bad, but here we are now and summer just can't make up its mind. Will it be hot today? Will it rain? Overcast? Cold even? Okay okay, summer is not bad. Just temperamental. There are definitely positives to summer - beach days, bonfires, eating outside of your favorite restaurant, convertible driving. Yeah, summer has its moments. 

I would like to think that everyday I should be able to wear shorts, a tank, and a pair of white Vans. That seems like a reasonable request for summer, right? But what do you do when you wake up and it is legitimately cool outside? When there is a crisp breeze that whips across the sidewalk as you make your way to work or class. On these days it make sense to throw on boots, a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. But hold on one second...a few hours later and it is sunny and 90 degrees. What then? Well, I just suck it up. I may sweat through my shirt a little, but I will live. And in the back of my mind, I know that it will only get cool again once night comes. 

So Mother Nature, you may be confusing and hard to read. But I will deal with it and dress how I like. Overdressed or not.
