I'm so ready for Spring.
I like Winter, mind you, but after awhile, I'm tired of itchy sweaters, heaters and dry skin. Tired of bulky jackets, static electricity, and foot-cramping boots.
My toes are ready to come out of hibernation! I'm ready for pedicures, bright colors, new growth, green grass, baby animals...bring it on!
March is almost here, and I'm hoping for north Louisiana, anyway, that Spring will ride it's coattails. For example, today the high will be 80 degrees. 80 degrees in February! Weirdly enough, that's pretty common for north LA. Unfortunately, its also pretty common for next week to drop back into the lower 40's. You just never know. North Louisianians can't store away their clothes by seasons. Nope, we truly need our summer, spring, fall and winter wardrobe accessible at all times.
Which is a great excuse to have bigger closets. =)
Today to work I wore gaucho pants, sandals, a bright orange tank, and a cropped denim jacket. I'm fighting the system. Who says you have to wear heavy, dark clothes in the winter? I dress for the WEATHER. Not for the stereotypical month. Because in LA, there is no stereotypical.
I got in the elevator to come up to my office and everyone else was in black and gray suits or big bulky sweaters. Come on, people, branch out. Wear bright colors! Free those toes! (yes, mine are painted so its okay! hehe) Embrace Spring!
I have the sinking feeling the people that need to read this blog don't even know it exists. lol Oh well. I've done my part to brighten America today.
So what is the weather like in your "neck of the woods"? Is Spring on its way, or are you still shoveling driveways and building snowmen? What is your favorite season?
