MARCEL PROUST SAID THAT a change in the weather is sufficient to recreate the world and ourselves. Yesterday we had hail, sun and rain alternating the hours from morning to night, turning the world outside my window into an Armageddon swallowing up the spring. I can't tell whether it's my mood that is most affected, or my manner of dressing. I think it's both.
The boyfriend thinks it's hormones.
With the breezy dresses and open-toed shoes parked in the closet where they continue to spin cobwebs since October, I gaze longingly at Bimba y Lola's spring-summer lookbooks, clad in the label's quirky, colorful femininity. Orange for spring, purple for summer and aqua for high summer.
I miss the reliable warmth of the tropics and being able to wear chiffon all year long.
