It’s official. It’s spring. Because I said so. As much as I love my boots, sweaters, coats, etc., I’m ready to move on. When the spring stuff starts arriving in stores in January and February, I’m usually not ready for it. I actually resent those clothes because I know they are too far in the future and I feel my winter clothes still need some of my attention. No more. I’m ready. The biggest thing I have my eye on for spring is the preppy trend that is resurfacing this year. Yeah, if you ask Ralph Lauren, J. Crew, and Michael Kors, the preppy look is always in. I’ve just noticed a major prep resurgence in the clothing lines this year though, even from some of those who don’t do prep. Prep is back people. And I like it a lot.
