Spring has sprung, people. The ten to twelve weeks of perfect weather in the Nation’s Capital are top on my list of reasons why I adore living here. Particularly because spring means it’s time to indulge in one of my favorite things…
Spring fashion. Oh my word.
See, I love me a bit of a mullet – an incongruous combination of business and pleasure. Spring fashion provides plenty fashion mullet moments. Bare legs and cardigans. Maxi dresses with boots. Sunhats on top, lacy tights on bottom. A hybrid, combining the best of your winter wardrobe with the cream of the early summer crop.
Spring is also a catalyst, enabling you change things up in your wardrobe. I know I only wrote about wardrobe clear outs a few months ago, but I’m all about change as soon as the first daffodils push their sunshiny heads forward. Whilst I didn’t get rid of too much this weekend just passed, spring cleaning my clothes was a great opportunity to get reacquainted with a few old friends. Vintage kaftan - I missed you. Let’s not leave it so long next time, alright?
Spring does have its downsides. Those first few cleavage sunburns, hay fever, and having to clear the winter undergrowth from my legs are not things I enjoy. But oh, to stroll bare-legged through campus on a sunny morning is worth all the sneezing, peeling skin, and razor burn.
