Today marks the first official day of Spring! We made it through the dreary winter and can now say goodbye to sweaters for a few months. Here, we've been feeling Spring for a while - the weather has been in the high 80's to mid 90's for over two weeks, and I am getting full use out of all of my spring skirts!
The outfit I wore today is quite simple, navy blue t-shirt and a white eyelet skirt, but it is probably one of my most favorite outfits. I really like navy blue... and white... and neutral colors in general. I took a lot of flack for it at work. The co-workers who see me as a "little sister" and always have fun nicknames to give me based on what I wear that day sure had a lot to say about this one. "Little House on the Prairie," "Fraulein Maria," they said I "stole Batman's utility belt, now who's going to save Gotham?" and they commented that I do in fact work in an office, not a meadow full of flowers. All I have to say is, "Whatever, I look awesome." That seems to be my defense response to everything, "I'm awesome."
Lastly, I believe the most severe symptom of my Spring Fever is extreme girlishness. Because of all this skirt wearing, I can't help it. I curtsy at any given opportunity. I curtsy at everyone at work and when I went to the Home Depot the other day I actually curtsied at a stranger when they said, "Hi!" Ladies, I think we need to bring back the curtsy, is there anything cuter?
Also, I find myself twirling a lot more than usual. I love to twirl, and lucky for me, it goes hand in hand with skirts. I read in a magazine this weekend that when Kate Hudson was little she would try on a skirt and twirl. If her underwear didn't show then she wouldn't buy the skirt. That's how you know you've found a good skirt, if it shows your underwear.
Hooray for Spring!
