The First Day of Spring, Tuesday, March 20th, was welcomed with a huge helping of sunshine and fresh air. Spring kicked off earlier this year than in the past, meaning a brighter, warmer time for everyone this season. I left for work this morning in a long sleeve floral print tee, tossing on a dark gray hoodie just in case, and was pleasantly surprised by the sudden shift in temperature in just a mere two days. The weather dares me to slip into a pair of strappy sandals and rock the cat-eye sunglasses like a boss, a challenge I gracefully accept with the coming months of clear skies and occasional breezes. I prepare to retire my favorite leather boots in favor of Rainbow flip flops, sandals that pile up in front of every Southern Californian’s door mat.
Biking around Central Park. Watching the sun set over the East River. Eating a not-quite-yet-defrosted ice cream sandwich in front of the Bethesda Fountain. These are all the things I’ve done since winter has slyly slithered away with its tail tucked between its legs. With the exception of the $4 ice cream brick, the newfound sun is promising. The liberation from wooly socks is refreshing, as are the crisp breezes that send a chill through my fat stubby toes. My sandals harbor no bitterness while they’ve been in storage for the winter months; in fact, I swear they hugged me when I took them out for a brisk walk to the market. As confident as I felt, no pair of sandals is complete without a clean set of digits.
