I cannot wait for Spring.

I say this as I am wearing a red lace skirt in defiance of the cold weather that is lingering in March.

Winter should watch out.

Spring break should be warm and sunny, a tease of the summer months to

come.

On my break from school, 40 degree temperatures seem like a respite from frigid negative digits and blankets of snow still cover the suburban ground.

from soft,  emerald-

green grass. Budding pink roses glowing in a pool of golden light before twilight sets in-now, that’s a sight to see.

People feel crammed in the winter months. Don’t get me wrong, I love watching white snow fall.

There is something magical about small flurries, falling down from the sky like soft rose petals. The world seems to become softer, quiet.

Everything is exciting during the

holidays, all warm and cheerful.

Then, after the haze of sequins and alcohol of New Year’s, spring should hit. It sure would make it easier to stick to New Year’s resolutions.

I crave sunlight. I want it to warm up my skin (maybe I can get a tan and stop dusting  so much peachy blush and bronzer on my cheeks.)

Who am I kidding, I love makeup, but is it a crime to want to walk outside and feel comfortable without wearing a massive coat?

Outside, everything is grey. I’m not talking something exciting like

“50 Shades of Grey” just bleak and cold, with bare branches reaching up in the sky.

I want to wear a sundress! It’s so much easier getting dressed in spring. You can slip on a sundress and look put together and cute without much effort.

Now in the cold mornings, I need to slide on skin-tight jeans and a cute shirt, but I need to wear a cardigan or sweater over top.Want to wear adorable strappy shoes? I have been wearing boots for months.

Not to show contempt for them, I love my high black heeled boots (and my ankle ones when I feel bold and want to switch it up)

It would be nice to show off a pop of pink or red polish in peep-

Spring is more than the freedom to wear whatever I want, free from the confines of layers of clothing, it’s a state of mind.

walking outside, seeing the sky grow darker is depressing. The extra hours of sunlight to come are glorious. Being able to go to dinner and still see the sunlight on the horizon ( and not an inky-navy sky) is incredible.

I cannot wait to be able to go outside and walk around. Ok, I should have walked to the gym and went on the treadmill. Still, leaving campus to walk into town is something I’ve missed.

Springtime officially starts in 18 days. I know that on March 21 there will not be perfect-60 degree weather. I will still be out there, wearing a skirt, because it’s spring and I don’t have to explain myself.

As a self-proclaimed lipstick addict, I cannot wait to try spring makeup. Want to know what looks were featured in New York Fashion Week (that we can re-create?) Read my article for the Loquitur, my college newspaper here!
