How To Dress For Maryland Weather

Pack your closet with light layers

I live and go to school in Maryland. Have you ever heard the saying, "If you don't like the weather it will change in 5 minutes."? Well for Maryland it actually is rather true. This past week we have experienced spring and winter in a matter of hours! The week after Punxsutawney Phil said there would be six more weeks of winter there were days reaching 70 degrees — spring time weather. But of course the next day we had snow flurries! Clearly it is important to check the weather before you leave the house in Maryland! Here's a small guide on how to dress for a full day in Maryland.

1. Winter morning.

Usually the mornings are the coldest, so it is best to bundle up then and when I say bundle I mean it! The wind is a big thing here, especially Salisbury, and that is really what makes the cold days even colder! Who cares if you can't put your arms down or get up when you fall, as long as you're bundled up and warm!

2. Fall late-morning.

These layers should be functional though, and be sure that they can be taken off to create a cute outfit! Yes, you may have to carry a lot but it'll all be worth it! Booties are the best shoe choice since they really can be wore with most of the seasons! Make sure you just have a really large tote bag to store all of your bigger layers from the winter weather, and possibly a different pair of shoes. The thing you should be wearing underneath your winter layer is a light jacket, sweater, and/or cardigan, also a fashionable yet warm scarf is a helpful piece. Think of this layer a more autumn inspiration for that part in late morning where you no longer need your winter bundle but it still has not hit that summer part of the day. THE MORE BASIC THE BETTER!

3. Summer afternoon.

You may not want to wear these boots with your fall outfit since it is difficult to incorporate boots with summer but the "basic" principles behind this look are what will help you through the autumn part of the day. The middle of the day will be your summer! Use that handy-dandy tote to put your booties and and break out some sandals/flats! Wear a tee or tank to even out the heat from your legs in pants. It is easier not to have to change pants so cuff your jeans or leave them it really probably won't be 90 degrees just warmer than normal so jean should be alright!

4. Spring Evening

Finally is spring! The evening gets a little colder, break out that functional scarf and those booties to warm up a little. Usually people think spring dresses but really since we are trying to work this all into one outfit a dress is not practical! You should have a cute tank or tee underneath that sweater from autumn. A light long sleeve is probably the best since this morning was just winter maybe try to keep yourself a little contained. If you wear jeans you can cuff them into cute capris that are seasonally appropriate and then cute little flats are perfect! This way you won't be too hot with this weather change but you won't get too cold with those spring breezes.

Maryland is up and down with it's weather make sure you check it before you leave and have all the layers you could possibly need!!!

A Letter To My Go-To Aunt

Happiness is having the best aunt in the world.

I know I don't say it enough, so let me start off by saying thank you.

You'll never understand how incredibly blessed I am to have you in my life. You'll also never understand how special you are to me and how much I love you.

I can't thank you enough for countless days and nights at your house venting, and never being too busy when I need you. Thank you for the shopping days and always helping me find the best deals on the cutest clothes. For all the appointments I didn't want to go to by myself. Thank you for making two prom days and a graduation party days I could never forget. Thank you for being overprotective when it comes to the men in my life.

Most importantly, thank you for being my support system throughout the numerous highs and lows my life has brought me. Thank you for being honest even when it isn't what I want to hear. Thank you for always keeping my feet on the ground and keeping me sane when I feel like freaking out. Thank you for always supporting whatever dream I choose to chase that day. Thank you for being a second mom. Thank you for bringing me into your family and treating me like one of your own, for making me feel special because you do not have an obligation to spend time with me.

You've been my hero and role model from the time you came into my life. You don't know how to say no when family comes to you for help. You're understanding, kind, fun, full of life and you have the biggest heart. However, you're honest and strong and sometimes a little intimidating. No matter what will always have a special place in my heart.

There is no possible way to ever thank you for every thing you have done for me and will continue to do for me. Thank you for being you.
