the in-between days



I'm terrible when it comes to the in-between seasons - Fall into Winter - Winter into Spring. I start getting grumpy about everything I own and want to get rid of it all and start over (and it's usually for a closet full of Lyell). The past few weeks have been pretty confusing as far as cold grey days that feel more like the start of Winter then the start of Spring. But, we were really lucky to have such wonderful, wonderful sunny days a few weekends ago and I keep telling myself there's more warm breezes to come, they're just taking their dear old time!



It was nice to run around with NO tights on! But, now those warm days seem like forever ago now and it's totally breaking my heart. There are things I want to do! Places I want to visit! People I want to see! ...But, for now - I'll be good and practice some patience.

I've banished tights until next fall. No way, no how am I wearing them, not matter how cold it is!

I too have the same problem, although this year it has been far worse...I usually live in Rhode Island, but for the past 3 months I've been living in Quebec. So my body, being on RI seasons, is ready to be buying capris and wearing skirts and the Quebec weather is all, no you don't! We STILL have about 2 feet of snow on the ground :(

In between days make me so sad! The rain is pouring down here too, and I have yet to go without tights. You look adorable in those pictures though, and there are more of those days to come. Take care! :o)

we just had six inches of snow fall over night here in central illinois. your post is keeping my spirits up!

Hanner said...

totally! I was so excited, today was my first day sans tights, and then it poured rain and I'm afraid it will be weeks until warmth again

Frances Baker said...

I have the same reaction to changing seasons... it's not very useful or budget appropriate! Very annoying!

ugggggghhh it was over 70F here for the first time this year... and then it hailed tonight just when everyone was nice and ready for a warm sunset.

You look charming in your "in-between" outfits... and don't worry about the wait for spring-- The longer the wait, the sweeter the warm breezes will be!

Really I might be the only one, but I kinda luv the in between times! I get a change to wear all my fun spring dresses while still getting to wear all my favorite scarves. I luv all the layering possibilities that the in between times give you.

You have completely summed up how I'm feeling at the moment! It takes a lot of morning dithering, deciding whether or not to go without a coat; though you're lucky to be going without tights already!

Hope you don't mind, I just wrote you an email, but couldn't find an address on here, would you mind maybe commenting me with yours? Or if you'd prefer not you could email me at lasvegasdolly@hotmail.co.uk (yeah, lame address but to be honest, who hasn't got one?)

Please never throw out all the clothes you own and start over. But if you in fact ever do, tell me immediately and I'll be on the next flight straight to your house with a checkbook in hand!

I love the dress! So pretty! And photos are lovely as well. Spring is so nice! It hasn't been warm enough for bare legs here yet, but I can't wait.

Indie.Tea said...

Hi...your blog is beautiful! And I adore your blue polka-dot dress...

Katy said...

Yes, this is always a difficult time of the year! One week, the sun will be shining and the breezes will be warm, and the next week, you wake up to snow on the ground again!
