Many people when they wake up in the morning they look out the window to see what it looks like or ask a friend or if your in college and commute they ask their roommate what it is like outside. None of these ideas are bad but you have to remember everyone reacts to different weather. To some it may be cold, or warm or just right. I recommend downloading a weather app to your smart phone or computer or if your up in time watch the weather. Some may think this isn’t reliable but i use my iPhone weather app everyday and I find it to be right on with the weather in Lisle area.
Not only is checking the weather important but dressing for the weather is to! For girls there are so many ways to dress cute for the cold some ideas are:
