If you're anything like me, the idea of a week of Spring filled weather after a very cold and miserable winter not only inspires thoughts of city strolling, park hopping and outdoor drinking, but also brings with it a slight wardrobe anxiety. You see, I've gotten so used to living in my tights, boots, thick sweaters and coats that putting together a transition weather appropriate outfit makes the ever prominent lines on my forehead even deeper. In short, what the f&*#$@#@ do we wear this week for the 75 degree nyc weather? Yes the weekend gave us a sneak peak into the glory that's to come but I'm all sorts of stressed trying to figure out how to make a smooth transition from my winter gear to my sunny summer selections.
Can I wear flip flops? Is it too soon for shorts? Will I need a jacket? What about flowery dresses? If I put on a sweater will I be way too warm? But what if I wear a skirt without tights and it gets cold at night? UGHHHHHHH
After many moons of research, very careful people watching from an open windowed cafe (what up Cafe Condesa!) and revisiting many online shopping carts filled with spring goodies, I've come to a few conclusions about this particular predicament. What follows is basically going to be my transition into Spring uniform. Apparently my Spring picks are neutral, neutral, neutral and somehow they include the word "boyfriend" for the most part. Weird. Well at least we can get lots of mixing and matching out of these guys.
I'm also curious to know, for anthropological research purposes of course, what some of you out there wore this week to usher in the Spring Summer time? Have you mastered the art of transitional fashion yet?
