Monday Mix: Is it Spring yet? Is it? Is it? How about now? Huh? Now? And, sales

By Voxy  

pink tulips by obenson.I am just bursting at the seams for spring.

Oh, wait. I’m bursting at the seams because I’ve eaten too much Easter candy. Well, same difference.

I’m virtually panting with eagerness to get out the spring wardrobe, stop wearing my three pairs of black slacks that are in near-constant rotation, and move on to chambray skirts with airy cardigans and girly sandals. I’m also looking forward to wearing more pastels (in both clothing and makeup) and as much pink as I can reasonably get away with. And I’ve been eyeing my spring fragrances too.

However, I’m also going to have to start switching out my heavier winter skincare and makeup products for lighter ones more suitable for warmer weather. Just as soon as I’ve gotten a routine down pat, it’s time to change it. I have a lot of products I haven’t road-tested in warm weather yet, so this may be a bigger adventure than I’ve bargained for.

Is it just me, or are you all jonesing for spring too? I keep looking for little tiny green leaf buds on the tree outside my window, but so far no luck. Talk to me about your favorite springy things: chirping birds, dewy grass in the morning, the trees turning a gradual misty green, pops of color everywhere, the sky turning a brilliant blue…


HauteLook has MD Skincare starting today (Monday) at 11 am Eastern/8 am Pacific. That’s 11 am Eastern DAYLIGHT Time, for those of you who (like me) slept right through that time change yesterday. Oops.

    I love that cool, fresh spring breeze.

    I’m looking forward to some new turquoise accessories, and new sandals. Maybe turquoise sandals.

      Turquoise is apparently the official color of the year (I can’t remember where I read that), so you are very fashion-forward!

      Oh… sandals. Love sandals.

        I know! I’m so excited that turquoise is in. I love coral too, but I will admire it on everyone else.

        It’s hard not to go sandal crazy right now when I’m so tired of my winter shoes.

    The corals are coming. I so want the BB spring palette.

      Me too! I definitely would like some of those corals. The pot rouges look particularly nice.
