I love so much about Spring – the flowers, the lush green, the fresh smell of earth and rain….but sartorially, it kinda drives me nuts. I'm so amped up for warm temperatures, but I typically wake to 40-something degrees. Only to dress for it, then find myself sweltering around 2PM as the temps climb near 70. Denver was the worst, but Philadelphia can compete: Hello, humidity.
But these are good problems to have, Mamas. If you haven't yet gotten around to voting for my nanny's Harambee Aquaponics Project in Kenya, please do so now. At the time of this writing, they are only in the #4 spot…and they need to get to #1. (Want more info? Read our article on the project here.)
Ok. Back to our silly little concerns.
Anyway, I'm finding that throwing on a pair of shorts with a tee and a sweater seems to leave me pretty well prepared for most Spring weather. Raining? Add rainboots. Want a little more style? Try short booties. You saw the short booties + shorts + sweater trick last week, remember? Too lazy to click over? Ok – here:
But for max comfort, I'm grabbing my Sperrys or TOMS.
Incidentally, the Easter Bunny brought me these bright turquoise shorts:
I think they are going back. I mean…they are cute. I don't know. I feel like an 8 year old? It's weird, but I don't have a problem with the 80's floral shorts, or even my pink/purple/tye-dye floral crazypants…but these? For some reason, Mamas, these bug me. I suspect that I probably owned a pair, like, 30 years ago or something. I swear, each time I see myself in these shorts I'm expecting to see knobby knees, too-big teeth, and bad hair.
