Boutique shopping day

Green eyeshadow and a mosquito net skirt: now thats a party
  • Green eyeshadow and a mosquito net skirt: now that's a party.

Without sounding too whiny, or stating the obvious, I can't wait for the warmer weather. The main reason being that summer clothes are much more fun than winter garments. Short sleeves, short skirts, light fabrics; everything my heavy wool coat must protect when I can't stand another sweater and foolishly wear a T-shirt on a February day ... like today.

So if your winter scarf is choking you like mine is me, and you want to play around with some spring fashion and its accompaniments (sunshine, picnics, cool shade, green grass, lemonade ... bear with me, it's the fever) enjoy tomorrow's Spring Therapy, an afternoon of sales and snacks at some local boutiques: Eve's Revolution (1312 W. Colorado Ave.), Swish (1816 W. Colorado Ave.), Elly Blue (2607 W. Colorado Ave.), Recess (1721 W. Colorado Ave.) and Lucy and Louise Atelier (the Promenade Shops at Briargate).

Spring Therapy runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. And once that's out of your system, you can face the rest of the cold days — somber, utilitarian jackets and all — like a champ.
