In The Wasteland, T. S. Eliot wrote, "April is the cruellest month . . . ." Considering that the weather this week alone has gone from fabulous to freezing in the blink of an eye, I can't help but agree! I was planning to take some photos outside but I decided to stay in, just in case some snowflakes start falling or something--that's how cold the wind feels today! Sigh. You can't stop a girl from trying to be optimistic that warm weather WILL soon be here to stay! As preparation, I tried to figure out what to wear with this lovely 30s aqua sweater this spring. I actually wore it out on Sunday with a navy skirt, but my husband kept telling me it looked purple next to the sweater, so I pulled out the off white skirt from a 30s suit I bought earlier this year from Solanah on Etsy and thought that might clash less (got the idea from the lovely gal from a 30s knitwear pattern, shown below). I also thought I'd walk around the house for a while in my slightly tight 40s two tone pumps, just to get them less painfully snug, so I can actually wear them for longer durations! They still seem to pinch, though. Any suggestions on how to stretch these babies (aside from investing in shoe stretchers)? Also, any thoughts on what else in terms of colors of skirts or trousers I could wear this lovely aqua with? Help!?
