Fashion Police Poll: Are you wearing your spring/summer wardrobe yet?

Flip_flops British Summertime officially began quite some time ago now, but so far it’s been "summer" in theory only. I’m still sloping around Fashion Police HQ in thick cardigans and remembering to take my woolly hat with me when I walk the dog, but when I cast my eye over our recent Fashion Police Checkpoints, I notice that a fair old number of you are getting away with much more summery fashions.

To be honest: I’m jealous. I’m desperate to get all my little sun dresses and sandals out to play, but I know that if I give up my winter woolies right now, I’ll probably freeze to death by dinner time, so I’m going to have to settle for living vicariously through you, our readers.

Go on then, make me jealous: tell me whether you’re wearing your Spring/Summer clothes yet. And do you start wearing them when the calendar says its summer, or do you wait for the weather?

    It has snowed a few times in the last few weeks here in Western Canada. We still need to our winter stuff.

    I live in New Orleans so the warm weather clothes start making an appearance around February. (I wore a sleeveless dress for Valentine’s Day.) It tends to go back and forth until the end of March, so I will be in flip flops and shorts one day and sweaters and pants the next. What I wait until the official summer season to wear is madras, seersucker, and white shoes/purses.

    I’m still layering, but lighter layers, like my new Zara trench over a nice top, instead of top, sweater, coat, scarf, gloves and peeking out like Kilroy.

    I’m in Austin, TX so I’m right there with Shelly…it is mostly summer here. however, it doesn’t really matter what the temp is outside as I’m confined to my office most of the day where it is always freezing. As far as my coworkers are conerned I wear the same thing every day: a brown hoodie for a top a fuzzy blue blanket as a skirt.

    I’m from Cornwall and it’s brass monkeys here still. Today I went out without a coat for the first time, and nearly froze to death before being caught in a shower, so I’ll be wrapped up warm for a while longer yet. So many sundresses wasting away in the dark recesses of my wardrobe…

    Saturday morning I had to remove my hoodie mid-dog-walk, and today and yesterday I replaced my boots with flat canvas pumps. Also, on Saturday afternoon I was wandering the village in my flip flops and a cami/cardi combination, but only through laziness – I put proper shoes on to actually go shopping! I think we’re getting there, but haven’t actually arrived just yet!

    We have a saying where I live: “If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes.”
    And it’s true. We don’t really have spring… it is more like alternating days of summer and winter. It is warm outside right now (I was out walking in just a tank top), but it was snowing three days ago.
    So I have been breaking out my summer clothes… but I haven’t put my winter ones away yet either.

    It’s Arizona where I live. How can you NOT afford to wear summer clothes all year round? Crap! Here comes the 125 degree weather…
