I think all of Chicago had been walking around in a total funk for the past six weeks. We’re a tough people, and we expect to fight the bitter cold, snow, and wind from December-March. The payoff inevitably comes every year when the days get longer and the temperatures get warmer, and the entire city comes alive. What we didn’t anticipate this year? That spring wouldn’t come until the end of April.
I’m sure you’re sick of hearing us Midwesterners complain about the lack of spring weather, but it really wears on you day after day. The past few days I feel like I have a new lease on life, and I wake up with a smile on face when I realize my walk to work won’t be so bad after all. This shirtdress makes me think immediately of spring, and I’m not sure there’s a better spring combo than blue and white stripes.
Question for you ladies (particularly those that are bustier)- how do you feel about items that tie or cinch in under the chest? My mom and I were recently having this debate as I feel like I was raised with magazines telling me to always accentuate that part of my body. My mom, on the other hand. lives in fear of the “uniboob” that (allegedly) could result. What’s your stance on cinching the waist?
