We are now in March, and I’ve finally added some coupon-using clothing to my wardrobe. I have to go to a conference on Friday, so I ordered a spring/summer black dress from L.L. Bean (7 coupons), and a cheerful pink cotton and cashmere cardigan (5 coupons), also from L.L.Bean. I had it all planned — I was going to wear them together with my multicolored silk flowery scarf that used to be a skirt and through sympathetic magic, bring spring to America!
Alas, we’re getting another 8 inches of snow on Thursday and the temperature is going to be below freezing on Friday, so I will most likely be in my winter black dress (with boots!), and not this new one. I can still wear this happy cardigan over it, but with my winter coat, too. I do have a large woven wool floral scarf that I got years ago from a local thrift. It’s a little chancy to wear this, though, as it may scream “Russian winter!” rather than “American spring!”
We’ll see — I may still be able to invoke spring whilst keeping warm in winter’s last gasp. If next week is sunny and in the 50’s, you’ll know it worked and I did it 😉
