Houston in Februrary

Thanks to one of your comments, I realized I haven't explained what February in Houston is like!

Since UHCL and the South Shore Harbour (SSH) Hotel & Resort are located near or on the coast, humidity is always present, if not high, so start practicing updos and naturally wavy or curly hair. For a majority of February, the temperature will be a cool 50 degrees Fahrenheit. When you factor in the humidity and coastal breeze, it could feel maybe as cold as 40 degrees. However, the UHCL and SSH buildings are always appropriately heated to something more like 65 or 70 degrees.

My suggestion would be to use your layers! I am always very comfortable when I wear my pantsuit with a cute scarf and pea coat. Some of my friends like wearing slacks with a nice t-shirt, button-up long sleeve shirt, and a small overcoat for the outdoors. Also, accessories are invaluable in Houston weather and travel in general! I really like scarfs, ear muffs (no hat head!), gloves and shawls. These are great for travel because you can take them off when you are warm and they don't take up too much space.

I have also heard rumor that we are going to have an unusually warm winter this year. I would believe it, considering it was 80 degrees a couple days ago! Basically, the weather in Houston is very difficult to predict, so outsmart the weather by wearing layers and accessories to keep you warm.

To learn more about Houston weather and style, I highly recommend reading "What to Wear in Houston." Here are some highlights of the article:

"Houston has what is known as a humid subtropical climate.  Desert heat from the southwest in Mexico combined with the moisture from the Gulf of Mexico are what give Houston its characteristic weather. . .

"Most of the winter in Houston does not require heavy layering.  You won’t be doing much walking unless you’re at the park or at the new City Centre window shopping, and the heat can be turned up so much once your inside a building that you’ll quickly shed your outerwear (of which you will pretty much only need one – a good, medium-weight wool peacoat, for example)."

Happy packing!

I write a comment each time I especially enjoy a post on
a site or if I have something to valuable to contribute
to the discussion. It is caused by the passion displayed in the article
I read. And after this article "Houston in Februrary". I was actually moved enough to
leave a leave a responsea response :-P I do have a couple of questions for
you if it's allright. Could it be simply me or does it give the impression like some of these comments appear like left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on additional places, I'd like to keep up with you.
Could you list the complete urls of your community pages like your linkedin profile,
Facebook page or twitter feed?
