Spring into a "new" Look!

It's official- Spring has arrived! And with it, allergies, pasty legs and funny looking vintage skirts. It's a sickness, really.

One of my favorite things about a new season is the slight changes people make to their everyday looks. Sometimes it's a scarf, a pair of sunglasses, new earrings or a new hair style. Hemlines go a little shorter, styles become more relaxed and socks get burned. Huh?
I skipped my neighborhood's annual sock burning this year because I was too full from a Dim Sum brunch filled with roast pork yumminess.
Sock burning? It's a local thing- usually at yacht clubs, sometimes at bars. A way to welcome Spring- which is what I'm attempting to do with this post.
So, without further ado- a pick from each of my shops that makes me yearn for Spring!

This 1950s Nina Ricci silk scarf is large enough to wear a multitude of ways. The fold and tie is a personal favorite- pretty and feminine yet sexy and fun. Also great as a belt, a headscarf or around the neck.

This Washington Senators jacket hails from the 1963- 1971 era. Washington Senators? They became the Texas Rangers (that time around). DC has a long and sad history with baseball. And while I've never been a huge baseball fan, I (and nearly any DC area native) will tell you that "The Nationals" is a stupid name choice. This jacket, however, is a smart choice for any hipster, baseball fan or fellow fan of the nation's capital.

What better way to celebrate the cherry blossoms and longer days than to imbibe? These 1962 Toby Designs Tiki glasses were made in Hawaii. Hard enough to track down a single one- a flawless set of four is a total score! Perfect for your next poolside soiree or post- work brewski.
