For those of you still waiting to see the sidewalk out front, sorry.
And, for those of you just above, along or just below the Equator’s midriff, this post is definitely not for you, unless, in another life and locale, you used to weather winter’s blasts and prayed for spring’s hastened arrival.
As you know, it was only a few days ago that Old Man Winter was still lurking around my borgo (neighborhood), keeping spring at bay with cold, damp and rainy weather. Then, in an instant — like a horde of traveling salesmen on a Friday afternoon turning in their rental cars and boarding planes for return flights back to suburbia — POOF! OMW packed his bags and left town with nary a goodbye note.
For me, nothing says spring — a.k.a. “sweater weather” — better than a nice, light and soft, long-sleeve V-neck pullover with a color-coordinated tee underneath.
As with shoes, eyeglasses and blue shirts, I don’t lack for V-neck pullovers either. If anything, I have way too many. And, I just added to the GNP — Gross National Pullover — as I picked up a few more sweaters at an upscale clothing store just around the corner.
With a 50%-off sale inside — promoted as Fashion Week — and warm weather outside, I just couldn’t resist. When the dust settled on the damage I had done, I walked out with a stack of NAVY (dark blue), PETROLIO (petroleum pastel blue), PRATO MELANGE (light field green) and VISONE (mink brown) colored V-neck pullovers.
Like the labels and string tags on my latest acquisitions state — PULL [some] LOVE [over yourself] — go on and add a splash of color to your wardrobe and welcome in the arrival of spring. Follow my lead and PULL the cotton OVER your eyes with a smart looking V-neck sweater.
Now, about those socks…
