Going Naked

    So, how many of you have changed your wardrobe? I am eying my sweater collection carefully, and frankly, the sweaters are getting nervous. OTOH, I have a new-found love for wool socks. I find I have been padding about with little clothing on, with the house at about 60-65 degrees, and I feel very comfortable all-over with wool socks. What changes have you made?

    We have a wood-burning stove. The room it's in has to be pretty hot for it to heat the rest of the house. So, as a compromise, I generally just wear a pair of shorts and no shirt or socks. My feet get pretty cold as the floor temp is usually around 50-60 degrees. I also walk around outside in the snow and cold barefoot every evening for a while.
  3. I live in Texas, so definitely no more long sleeves for a very long time!! At work I have to wear pants, but as soon as I get home I put on a sleeveless T shirt and that is IT! I just parade around the house in my underwear. This also works wonders for my relationship! I sleep with no covers, windows open, and no A/C since its been so nice out. I don't know WHAT I'm gonna do when the temps get over 100 lol...

    I don't wear a coat outside anymore (but I'll wear a hat and gloves if it's really cold out), I dub around the house in a tank top or tshirt most of the time even though I keep the thermostat down around 62, and much to my husband's chagrin I've started opening the window at night when I go to bed...even when it's like 30 degrees out. ;)

    The wine is gone and I am right now in the man room......naked listening to pandora heading out to the pool. I take no prisoners and give no quarter. Just finishing an optimal bulletproof coffee though. Have two big bio hacks to do in AM.

    I had to have an emergency dash to the shops a couple of weeks ago when I realised all my work clothes are too, too hot.

    I am finding that many things are too heavy, but I really like the wool socks. I think it is weird for me to be developing a dislike for cotton. It seems to clammy in the cold, and almost drippy when I warm myself up. I prefer thin polyester/nylon or even rayon in the winter.

    I get some strange looks from the morning walkers when doing circuits of the beautiful lake in my neighborhood. I'm wearing gym shorts, running shoes, and an iPod. It's 45-50 deg F. I'm wishing it were a bit cooler, but others are wearing sweaters, coats, and sometimes hats and gloves. The dogs are smarter. I took a pic of a dog swimming in the lake, chasing the Canadian geese and ducks. He was having a ball. He was in the water for at least of my two circuits, about 30-40 minutes.

    Yes, my bull terrier used to always love splashing in icy water - it made him go completely mad with energy and exuberance. He didn't like a warm bath though!
