Spring ThingsThursday, March 07, 2013
Spring is just around the corner. I know this not because the days are getting longer, not because there's a bouquet of tulips on my desk, not because the snowbanks are extra filthy, but because I have been getting emails from different retailers EVERY DANG DAY, chockablock full of adorable spring clothes. Pinks and lavenders and greens, ladies frolicking around in cute cropped pants and flats and crisp white shirts. I die. Get me out of these Sorels and into some capris RTFM.
Spring fashion is tricky, especially here in Nova Scotia, where we don't really have spring. We have winter, winter, winter, and then it rains and smells like pig poop for a day or two and then it's blazing hot. This transition happens sometime in June. So traditional springtime things like Easter egg hunts are difficult. Last Easter we had a snowstorm. It's rough.
But a girl can dream of a magical place where there are four seasons, and seasonally-appropriate new outfits for each season, right?
This year's spring wish list looks a bit like this:
1. Cropped jeans - I have been on the hunt for a pair of mint green jeans, which I think would be great with a white or chambray shirt. I don't know, am I too old for mint green jeans? I have the same question about mint green nail polish. Is there an age limit for these things? There are also some print ones I've seen that I like, but drawing attention to my lower body is something I've been trying to avoid for the past TWENTY YEARS so we'll see.

4. Something with a ruffle. Nothing too flouncy, just a simple little ruff (we're calling them ruffs now, got it?)
