Stores are trying to trick me by putting out shorts. Shorts, those things that show your leg from the mig-thigh down. Sorry Bloomingdales, but I refuse to be tricked by your tactics. I know we are months from spring and even further away from me baring any leg skin. The only thing I’m buying from now to mid-March are jackets, like this one from the LOFT with the adorable leopard collar. Oh, and boots. Let’s not underestimate the warmth of boots. I got these J.Crew boots for Christmas and I have my eyes on these but am waiting to see if they go on sale even more. No matter how adorable, I refuse to be fooled by the arrival of spring items in the stores. Now… where did I leave my mittens?
