    I'm not sure what thought you are trying to express. Can you try to put it a different way? Don't worry about mistakes - we can help with those.

    Well, what I'm trying to say is that "the weather is quite windy, the wind surrounds the girl (makes her hair and clothes lash about)". Something like that. How can I express this word "surrounds" in other words to make it sound natural. Because in Russian it's like "the wind wraps somebody".
