A white blanket of snow, topped off by inches of ice, covers everything in sight for as far as my eye can see. Although Spring is a mere days away, we are deep in a frozen tundra. Although our mudrooms are overflowing with down parkas, mittens, hats, scarves and boots I am envisioning the good days ahead... The days filled with warmth and sunshine, rosy cheeks, pink and green buds, pastel flowers and gentle breezes. I look forward to shedding these layers bit by bit... I look forward to the days of light sweaters, but even more so, to those days when we can freely bare our arms and shoulders! The past couple of summers saw the popularity of bare shoulders and this trend doesn't seem to be passing us by any time soon. I happen to adore this - I think a woman's décolletage is incredibly beautiful and this is a style that suits so many so well. As I no longer wear figure hugging tops, I think the shoulder-baring style is incredibly forgiving and flattering.  I also love the sleeveless look, revealing our feminine yet strong arms. Below, some of my favorite looks - both casual and dressy... The warm weather will be here before we know it! Least, that's what I'm telling myself!
