Different Year, Same StoryPosted: February 18, 2009
I fall for it every time. As soon as we get to the end of January I seem to think that spring has started and I go all stupid over nautical inspired fashion. I’m not a sailor. I’ve never even been on a boat in my adult life so why is it that at the same time each year I come over all Popeye and want to buy every red white and blue garment I can see? I think its just optimism. After spending months all bundled up in winter garb I want to break out and wear something lighter and brighter, and the crisp clean lines of this trend really appeal to me. I’ve tried doing the nautical thing in winter but it just doesn’t work for me so I’m happy that spring is on its way in and my boat print top will arrive in the post this week!
