My Spring wish list, pandemic edition. There’s not much shopping happening in my life. We get groceries delivered and we pick up prescriptions at the curb. Somehow the Mall parking lot always looks crowded, but not with my car. I haven’t been inside a regular retail store in over a year – dropping donations at the Molly Mutt Thrift doesn’t count as shopping, right?
I am working my small wardrobe, and following a mostly one-in, one-out routine. All of my meager clothes shopping is done through Etsy, Poshmark, eBay, and a bit of Amazon these days.
But we all enjoy something fresh for a new season. Here are a few things I’m looking at for Spring:
- A lightweight midi skirt. All my skirts cover my knees, and that’s a great length for me to play with at 5’6″. For warm months – that’s most of them in Florida 😊 – I like a cotton or lightweight denim skirt to wear with any of the tops in my closet. A full silhouette is my favorite for Spring.
- High waisted straight leg jeans. I know, high-waisted jeans are likely already in all those “Don’t Wear This Over 50” articles. Don’t care. I like the look right now, and it’s perfect for slightly cropped tees. No skin will show! but I like to see my waistline now and then.
- Upgraded tank tops in silk and linen. Tanks are standard issue for Florida weather, and I will show my upper arms all day long. It gets hot! This year I plan to add a couple of upgraded linen tanks and maybe a silk one, to wear with my straight jeans or midi skirt.
- A shot of botox for the “elevenses” expression between my brows. This past year has been tough on my face, lots of anxiety and loss had to pass over it (two of our three beloved cats crossed the bridge). I am in favor of a touch of medical help – for myself, your mileage may vary.
