Fashion Sense versus common sense

When you dress, do you let your fashion sense overrule your common sense? For example, do you put on a short skirt because it looks good even though it's freezing outside?

The only time I will usually wear a skirt or dress in the winter is for special occasions. And even then, it's one appropriate for the season. In the colder states, you need to dress for the season. If it's going to be fashionable, it needs to be functional also.

This is the way I feel. That's why I'm surprised so many stores up here only offer clothing items that would be appropriate in the summer time but not in the winter.

Common sense typically rules for me. Comfort is also huge in my decisions. The only routine change to that for me is when I go to a Mardi Gras ball. It has to be very cold indeed for me to put a coat on over my ballgown. I'm much more willing to just get cold from the car to the door, no matter how far away we have to walk!

Now if only someone would teach kids to use common sense.

Never, you can't look beautiful if your turning blue.
