Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow last Wenesday, thus predicting an early spring.
This pleases me. Not only in sympathy for my northern friends who have been battling snowstorm after snowstorm, but because along with the change of seasons comes the inevitable change of a dress.
Most folks live in beach houses and tikki huts over the summer. I live in maxi dresses. I love how versatile they are, paired with flip flops and a tote for an easy, breezy beach look; accessorized with high wedges and chunky jewelry for a tropical date night ensemble. They can also camouflage the unfortunate remnants of winter: Casper white, dry and/or unshaven legs.
I pre-purchased my first new maxi dress of the season from Tilly's this past weekend. I couldn't resist the Angie Scarf Maxi Dress with its flowery/paisley print, smock top and floor skimming length. It was only $24.99, and it wasn't even on sale.
Thanks Phil. I was this close to wanting to destroy my sweater dresses.
