When the Main Line was basking in the glorious 70-degree weather on March 19, I was wearing a racerback tank with a lightweight ruffle cardigan—and the cardigan was only necessary because racerback tanks aren’t exactly office-appropriate.
This morning, I pushed aside my beloved spring clothes and reached for a cozy sweater, scarf and wool jacket. I’m not very happy about the return to the “blah” winter temps, but as every day passes, I know we’re that much closer to the long days of warmth and sunshine.
So, have you done your spring wardrobe shopping yet? Here are some deals on warm-weather items, plus sales on winter inventory. Post a comment below to let me—and all our fellow fashionistas—know your favorite spring trends.
