Only bad clothing. And today I was wearing it.
This morning it was all of 21F when I went for my run. At 5:45am. That was today’s high here in NJ.
While I was plenty warm on my run (fleece tights, 3 long-sleeved layers, wool hat & mitts and neck gaiter works wonders although my butt gets cold–i guess it’s considered an extremity?), I was not warm at work. I had on a pair of heavy wool tweed capris (yes, that was the downfall) and nylon socks. Idiot. I should know better than to wear nylon socks. I only have one pair. All my other socks are Smartwool or handknit wool. (which is also smart, just not branded as such).
So all day long my ankles (and subsequently feet) were freezing. At acupuncture this afternoon, I could not warm up, and that made the entire procedure less relaxing than my first two visits.
Now I’m home, in wool socks (handknit), cashmere leggings, a smartwool base layer, and a wool/silk blend bulky sweater that I got in Scotland years ago. Because they know their cold and damp in Scotland.
Tomorrow I’m dressing smarter.
