I'm pretty sure Kelly Kapowski was onto something when she did the forecast way back when. In fact, she was such a good weather(wo)man she nailed D.C.'s weather this week, fifteen years later. It's been wild round these parts; cool and crisp in the morning, warm and balmy in the afternoon. Rainy and windy one minute, gorgeous the next. Incidentally my looks have changed almost as frequently as Kelly's in the clip above. Layer upon light layer has been the name of the game this week. Here's a few of my favorites weather-driven looks.
When Kelly tossed on a hot pink winter coat for colder weather, I paired a hot pink long sleeve top with one of my favorite polka dot skirts, black tights and booties.

It finally warmed up one day and Kelly shed her puffer jacket for a black and neon bathing suit. As no one needs to see me in a high-cut bathing suit, I simply reverted back to sleeveless tops and ballet flats.

We had several days of windy, cold rain and unlike Kelly, I did my best to avoid freezing and getting drenched with a blazer and scarf.

Since it was storming outside and I had newly straightened hair, I grabbed my J.Lo-esque hat to head out for the Phillie's game/dinner/a friend's birthday drinks.

In conclusion, I think we can all learn a thing or two from Ms. Kapowski; Zack is a total hunk, neon is hot again and dressing for the weather is the best way to stay comfortable during this transitional season. How do you match your wardrobe to the changing weather patterns that fall brings?
