It's only February.
During the last few days we've had highs in the mid-60s here in Rome.
The store windows are full of pretty clothes for Spring. Why must I be tempted so?!
For the first time in a while, the clothes coming down the runaway were fun and optimistic.
I'm kind of obsessed with these Prada shoes. I don't have Prada money.
Every year Prada does some variation of a Mary Jane. I have a pair of black patent leather Mary Janes I bought over ten years ago. I bought them as a treat to myself after getting completely screwed over at work (long story). I couldn't afford them back then either. I convinced myself, cost-per-wear, the Pradas would make more sense in the long run.
And they did. All the cheaper shoes I had are long gone. My Mary Janes are still in excellent condition despite getting quite the work out in L.A.
If I could figure out how to walk on cobble streets, I would wear them more often here.
I can't wait until Spring fruits and vegetable arrive at the Farmers Markets.
Warmer weather means a return to sitting outside for aperitivi or lunch/dinner with friends.
I have a few big things on the horizon this Spring. Our movie Jumping The Broom opens (ahem, May 6th, Mother's Day) and I hope to move to a new neighborhood. I will miss my current apartment but with yet another bar opening in Campo, I cannot renew my contract.
I know we still have the rest of February and the month of March before we can start packing away the winter clothes. However, I've noticed the days are already getting longer.
What are you looking forward to this Spring?
