Question Of The Week
Ignore the fact that we're expecting freezing rain, snow and super low temps this week. It's spring time! Well, it felt like it today and we're certainly changing our clothes to reflect the season, even if it's with accessories only.
This time of year, I put up most of my sweaters and heavy clothes and opt instead for tees and cardigans with pants or skirts when possible. And, because we layer 9 months out of the year here, I have lots of bright colors and a few argyle prints thrown in because I'm crazy like that, but otherwise, my wardrobe consists of lots of solid basics.
I love a big necklace to break up the monotony....or a cute pin like the one pictured above. It's still available on Etsy (link here), benefiting Cora Paige's playground. Coco sent me one like it and I've already worn it twice. Just a bit of color or design to show some sign of spring when the temperatures read otherwise.
I even bought Lainey this sweet brooch after she showed such an interest in my pins. And, if I can figure out how to do it, I might just borrow it from her!
Fell in love with and bought this necklace, which brings out my inner old-lady and matches my love of birds.
So, on to the business at hand....
***What is the first item you look forward to wearing in warmer weather? Other ideas for showing hints of spring in colder temps?
