Spring is on the way

We had a taste of spring and all the snow melted like a snowman in a sauna! I was able to wear spring jackets and my tartan poncho (bought in 1994 in Scotland).

Funny, I don’t like it when stores start showing their fall collections in the summer. I don’t even want to think about fall while I’m enjoying my favourite season because I dread winter.

However, there’s just something hopeful and uplifting when the stores start advertising spring clothes deep in the middle of winter! Bring it on!

March started with a snowfall to remind us that it’s still winter. I’m going to start packing away my snowmen and make room for my spring decor.


Can’t wait to shed my winter coats and wear sandals again!

Bring on the spring!

  1. Wish it were 😦 still very cold where I live. Ponchos are a great alternative to coats and jackets and they look good. Yours is particularly pretty, because it’s my beloved tartan. :))))) Kisses – Margot :)))

      Thanks so much Alex! Ponchos are great for this time of year, except our temperatures have dropped and I’ll have to wait a little longer for spring. Oh well, it was a nice while it lasted for a few days.

    I love your poncho of tartan! I love the combination of colors and I love how you wear it! Your elegance is personal, so delicate and so beautiful. And I love seeing you with this black outfit with the red top inside, the delicate lace sticking out from your neckline and caressing your skin. And the heart hanging from your neck, the heart that appears in all your moments, why the heart is you! I imagine your happiness to start springtime after the harsh winter of Ontario. Soon you can enjoy your wonderful spring looks, soon you will seduce us a little more with your delicacy and beauty.

      Thank you so much Josep-Maria! I’m glad I had a few days to wear my tartan poncho and some spring jackets, but it has turned cold again with more snow and the view from my window looks like a sugar frosted forest. You will see what I am wearing under my poncho in the next post. Hope you like it!

      ❤ carmen

    That’s a fab plaid wrap, Carmen! Lots of the world is cold right now, but I confess that in Florida we’re sitting outdoors in our tee shirts (sorry). Thanks for linking up, xo

    Yes bring on Spring. We had a week of real Winter in London, many boilers broke down and it was freezing with a storm too. Today it starts melting as well. I loved the white snow, but I also look forward to Spring very much! Get rid of the snowmen…..bring in the flowers!
