Although it's not officially spring yet, I'm just so excited for the arrival of warmer weather that I couldn't help but to get into the spirit just a little bit by...(gasp) not wearing any tights with my skirt! It was such a freeing feeling to go bare legged after such a long winter of concealment. And now that I've gotten a taste for that springtime sensation, I just want to bust out all my sundresses and wedges! But alas, I must refrain - unfortunately the weather conditions are not quite satisfactory yet.

I guess I'll have to continue to get my I-wish-it-was-springtime fix through stockingless legs, knee socks, and boots. I feel like it's fall all over again...accept this time I'm dying for some spaghetti straps rather than wool scarves. And you never know, with this bipolar weather we've been experiencing lately, I just may have to resort back to covering up again in the name of warmth (but let's stay optimistic).
