Spring Dreaming

Oh, when she's angry, she is keen and shrewd.

She was a vixen when she went to school

And though she be but little, she is fierce.

William Shakespeare,

A Midsummer Night's Dream,

Act 3, Scene 2

Recently we went to see A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Guthrie Theater. There's something about going to theater that makes me feel very fancy. My parents have been going regularly since I was a kid, and I remember watching them 

walk out the door, city-bound, dressed in their best.

Fancy at this transitional time of year is tricky. You want to be springy but you have to wear tights, you just have to. Unless its 50 degrees outside, you're going to be cold, and everyone's going to know you're cold. 

Falke

 makes the best; you'll love them. Invest.

Don't get too excited about spring/summer clothes, yet... You'll be sick of them soon enough. Page through your holiday wear and find something fancy to mix in and re-purpose. Green can be fresh this time of year, and lace can be springy... 

or midsummer night dreamy.

Mix on, fierce little dreamers.
