Lighten Up

by Kaylee Pare

While Mother Nature seems to be  undergoing a season-long mid-life crisis, I can definitively say that the extra hours of sunshine and a restored urge to walk everywhere, have surged a certain Spring flavour into my everyday routine. In place of heavy, salt-stained boots, I’ve come to enjoy the company of new sorbet pink ballerina flats. Weighty wool and cashmere have been set aside to make room for light knits in soft, neutral tones. Red, plum and navy shades are no longer desirable, only pastels and brights will get nail time from now on. Most expected of all, Hydrangeas have entered my home, care of mom, to brighten a lonely surface and bring Spring’s best blooming qualities inside. Unfortunately one of my favourite seasons (after Fall) brings with it a slight hot/cold rollercoaster. Perhaps it’s a small price to pay for our climate’s preparation to bring us warmth for the next few months. Think of this time as your last days with the brisk cold, make use of your most loved beanie and take pleasure in infusing certain new-season elements into the wardrobe you’ve come to know all too well throughout Winter. Most of all, day dream of stowing away your coats, boots and cold-weather accessories, and letting your skin enjoy some Vitamin D for a change. It’s all just around the corner, but for now…lighten things up with choices that keep you warm, but certainly breath much-needed vibrancy into your routine.
