In order to avoid the inevitable cold snap that always comes when I say it, I won't tell you that it's officially Spring in central Florida(!). The flowers (or "fowers", according to Lorelai) are blooming and the weather is absolutely perfect. It's been about 70 degrees and breezy (hence my Marilyn moments) this week and although my legs are brave enough to go bare, my arms haven't yet gotten the memo.
Transitioning into Spring and not ready to wear your day dresses? Layer a shirt underneath like I did with this polka dot chambray (Lo and I totally match on accident)! The extra warmth is just enough to get you all the way to Spring and you can start pulling some of your favorite warm weather frocks out of storage.
p.s. The 7 Year Itch has always been my favorite movie! I saw it for the first time the year that my parents celebrated their 7th wedding anniversary and couldn't have been more terrified that a breathy and beautiful bombshell (Marilyn Monroe's 'The Girl' character) was going to break up my happy home. I'm pleased to report that my parents have been together for 25 years and the movie is still one of my faves!
p.p.s Lorelai was named after a different Monroe character - Lorelei Lee from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.
