Spring is here. Flowers are blooming. Time to take out the floral dresses, sandals, and wicker bags and put them to good use. It is a great time for reflection, to leave the past behind, and take time to literally smell the roses! Well, unless you are allergic to pollen, then we can skip the smelling of the flowers. During Spring season, most of us do a spring cleaning starting with our closets. We put away all the warm and heaving stuff collected during winter to make room for lighter or newer ones. As we put them away, let's be mindful that no matter how cold the past winter was, Spring always comes. As we carefully pack away our winter clothing, let's remind ourselves how they kept us warm while travelling to see our family and friends during the holiday season. How cute they made us look on the ski slopes. And hey, don't forget that dazzling NYE ensemble we wore to welcome the new year with hope and gratitude that brought us where we are now.
Fashion reminds me the of the changes that come in every season. It makes me reminisce of the good times and bad. But most of all, it gives me something to look forward to. It gives me hope.
