Alternate post title: “April Snow Showers”… but another blogger named Sarah already took it. But it was indeed snowing when Chrystina and I took these pictures after enjoying a cozy morning in a Northern Liberties cafe.
It was April 9th. It’s fine. I’m fine.
We are finally done with winter weather. Bye. — me, on March 28th
Honestly, spring snow showers are all sorts of aggravating. First of all, it’s spring. Also, it’s the worst type of snow (from an annoyance perspective): cold, wet, fluffy, incapable of sticking and giving you a snow day. Rain boots are key for this kind of weather. With thick socks, you’ll stay warm and dry.
For my sanity, I need colorful layers. At this point, I am beyond done with black and gray. (Ignore the fact that my black peacoat is the last one I haven’t stored for the season.) A blue sweater and white knit scarf help brighten things up, but keep me comfortably warm. For an extra touch of color, I added this necklace I collaborated on with Katrina. The opera length is perfect for peeking out from underneath a scarf.
The moral of the story? When you get snow showers in April, keep it simple and dress in head-to-toe blue for a dose of spring. A bright white scarf and pastel statement necklace can only help.
Anyone else dress certain ways when the weather get depressing?
