As the USA moves into spring we applaud the sun and light (even as we shiver in the evening or wake up to a blanket of March snow.)
Is sky blue and cozy the perfect spring pairing?
I recently bought this small “lace” cashmere scarf.
Perfect for spring days when the wind is colder than the sky would suggest. Worn under my Barbour, or J. Crew field jacket, a Northern California layering strategy par excellence. Unfortunately Bompard sold out, but similar options are legion. Winter will come again.
I might also replace the throw blanket I bought this winter. As the weather lightens, tobacco-colored wool feels heavy.
I’m thinking yet more sky. Blue from periwinkle to cornflower to aqua to someone’s eyes.
And maybe new cushions! Spring warmth all around.
Somehow this brings to mind the bandanas of my teenage years, how jaunty but shy I felt the first time I tied one around my neck.
