I hesitate to say it. I know the second I do, I am sure to plague us
with a lethal blast of the dreaded spring blizzard that will erase the
sun and any hint of warmth that has crept into our days. But here it
goes…SPRING HAS ARRIVED, and all I can think about is my new, not
yet purchased, spring wardrobe.
 Of course, my ideal spring/summer
wardrobe includes a few dresses from Anthropologie and DVF, separates
from J Crew and Ralph Lauren, a trench from Burberry (my splurge), a
different pair of sandals for every day of the week with handbags to
match, and a pair of Chloe sunglasses big enough to protect most of my
face from the sun. More than anything I am ready to pack away my
monochromatic, winter apparel reserved for drab, winter days, and
embrace the beautiful prints and floral patterns designers seem to love
to use for the warmer months.

Since bold floral patterns seem to be just about every where this
season and I just read that Dr. Martens are celebrating their 50 year
anniversary, I couldn’t help but think back to when Dr. Martens and
floral dresses were all the rage back in the 1990’s. The clash of
flirty-feminine meets tough-steel toed work boot is a trend I look back
on fondly and one I would (embarrassingly enough) relish to come back.
