Springing Forward

Winter is over. Boot weather will soon be a distant thing of the past. It’s damn near time to lose the tights. The humidity will soon return. I might as well crawl under a rock and hide in the shade until September. Booooo, spring.

I could sulk about warm weather all day, but Macey of MHK in STL made me snap out of it. She was kind enough to include me in her STL Spring Style feature, which made me think about all the things I enjoy this time of year. Springtime breezes are nice, as is sitting outside with Lance and the pups. And while I may not tan, the sun does feel really nice. Saying goodbye to boots means saying hello to pedicures and cut-offs — and maybe it’s a fair trade. With spring literally on the doorstep, perhaps it’s time I retire my monochromatic wardrobe for the winter. (Or at least try to not wear white, grey, and black every day?) I could squeeze a few transitional pieces in while I wait for the temperature to rise.

There may not be any spring flora and fauna yet, but that warm-weather sun keeps trying to peek out. I can provide the flowers for now.
