I’m suspicious of this “summer in March” business. I’m not quite ready to give in completely to my love of madras and floral ties and start rocking white bucks, only to have them wrenched away by the inevitable early April snowstorm. But this linen one in a lovely royal blue and a teal and blue floral pocket square, that I can do.

The un-spranging of spring.
Well, it was close there for a while, but then we had a foot of snow on March 1st. Fortunately it hasn’t completely halted the unstoppable “March” of springtime (see what I did there?). Today was 35ish, but sunny. Perfect for winter items in a spring palette.
Green and purple, in muted shades work very well together in implying the impending greenery and blooms. The purple chucks remind me that sneaker season is right around the corner, (and also… come on, maximalist).
Soon guys, real soon.

I SHOULD NOT BE WEARING SORELS ON APRIL 1st! THIS MAKES ME ANGRY
