How sick, on a scale of 1-10, are you of hearing and reading the words ‘Spring has sprung’? I’m pretty bleedin’ tired of it, though I now understand that coming up with a snappy title for a spring-related post or email is not easy and not fun.
From a materialistic fashiony perspective, the onset of spring does not fill me with quite the joy that is rippling through fashion blogs. I’ve mentioned before how I feel most comfortable and stylish when I’m wrapped up in cardigans, boots and scarves. Most likely with a woolly hat atop my head and obnoxiously bright pink leather gloves on my hands.
The thought of taking off the oversized stripy jumper that has seen me through many a chilly day and many a hangover is utterly terrifying to me right now. Yet the weather outside the window is definitely taking a turn for the sunnier and brighter. I’m not a total killjoy: spring is beautiful, warm weather is glorious, and clothes that aren’t made of wool are very dashing indeed. I just need a little time to get my head around this whole ‘not wearing five layers at once’ thing. To help me get into the swing of things, I have rejigged my wardrobe and drawers so that the dresses, shorts and sheer blouses are within easy reach, and the winter standbys are packed away. I also turned to Polyvore for a bit of inspiration.
