There is a brief period of time in New England that is called spring,and it is quickly replaced by summer, which is almost upon us. Wickeds and Readers, what is your favorite piece of clothing that you wear during the late spring or early summer? What one thing can’t you wait to be able to put on after a dire winter? Does you color-palate change?
Julie: I love being able to wear my jean jacket, and that is enough. I also love light cardigans, and layering. My palette explodes in the spring. Winter is pretty gray/black. Spring has more pinks, some blues. Still a lot of gray and black, but with zippier accents.
Jessie: I wear dresses all year long but I love to be able to wear them with sandals and a giant floppy hat instead of with heavy tights and knee-high leather boots.
Liz: I’m so excited about colors this year. I recently did a mega-purge of clothes and shoes and have been trying to replace things with colors. I have my eye on a fun pair of peach pumps right now at DSW…
Barb: I’ll do Edith one better and say, barefeet! The minute the furnace goes off, so do the shoes, in the house, on the porch, on the beach. Anywhere I can get away with it. It is one of my favorite things.
Sherry: I trade in my jeans for skirts and long sleeves for short sleeves. And I’m so happy not to be bundled up in a coat, gloves, and scarf!
Readers: What do you love to wear, or to quit wearing, once the weather warms?
