Now, to most people, it's just annoying. You want another long-sleeved tee or cozy sweater to tide you over til Spring. Um, I don't have that, but can in interest you in a mini skirt?
To me, it was a license to dress in spring clothes. Actually, I was strongly encouraged to dress in spring clothes. I don't really dress at the top of my game right now to begin with, but am I already sick of bulky sweaters. I have noticed that I'm pulling brighter colors out of my closet. (Okay, brighter colors of long-sleeved tees out of my laundry pile.)
This bright cotton cardigan just might find its way into my laundry pile.
Also, when you think about it, January is half-way over, February is the shortest month in the year, then it's March! Hello Spring. I've missed you.
