Thawing the Winter Grays with Hot Spring Fashion

Okay, well the weather isn't like this quite yet, but the thawing snow is giving me some hope that it won't be much longer. Spring into Spring–budding trees, lilacs, pastels, vibrant colors, strappy open-toed shoes–and feel awakened from the mundane grays of the winter sky and slush-filled streets.

I’ve suddenly become excited about my upcoming Spring wardrobe after feeling inspired. Perhaps it is the warming weather and the fact that melting snow resembles puddles of Spring, or maybe it’s that I spent hours browsing enviously at cute clothes online. Either way, I’m excited to start wearing warmer weather clothing. I’ve started a list of items I need to start collecting. The official day of Spring is March 20th, but I’m quickly learning that New York weather is not nearly as harsh or long as Michigan weather soit seems that I will be able to shed my winter coat quite soon.

While I absolutely loved theflowy pastel colored skirts and silk shimmery tops seen at the Valentino and Chanel Spring 2011 Couture shows, I’m realistic that I won’t be able to afford such beauties. Butthat doesn’t mean I wasn’t able to do someheavy searching to try to find cute stylish clothes on a somewhat tight budget. Below are some things on my “”to buy”” list. I’ve been so annoyed with the fact that people scold me every time I’ve worn white after Labor Day (come on, that’s so old school)that I’m probably going to go a little white happy (no pun intended) when it’s finally Spring.
