I don’t want to sound too optimistic, but summer could be returning soon to Chicago (finally). And while I’m celebrating the joyful return of warm weather and open-toed shoes, something else is getting started in the city: mating season.
(insert Jaws theme music)
Oh that’s right, the weather isn’t the only thing heating up this spring.
The warm weather not only throws off how you should dress, but also, how you view members of the opposite sex. Suddenly that winter, wool coat and scarf disappear and guys start wearing just suit or cotton jackets over dress shirts. And yes, I swoon.
Actually, I objectify them with my mind and dream about doing naughty things to them. Oh yes, khaki rips easily, just like buttons.
Sorry, got sidetracked. That’s the great thing about the “spring heat” phase we all hit, suddenly you remember how cute guys and ladies look in light, springy clothing, how much happier they are waiting for the bus and the fact that they’re not ducking into doorways or putting on as many layers as humanely possible.
And, I know winter boots and Uggs are not the most attractive, but you cannot discount the warmth they offer.
I am a SUCKER for guys in dress shirts (especially blue ones) and khakis with loafers and a messenger bag. I will stare at them on the bus like they are a piece of meat to devour and make them uncomfortable with my glare.
So the question for tonight is, what clothing items do you love seeing your guy/girl wear once spring rolls around? Or what do they wear that you think they look the most attractive in? And yes, “nothing” is an acceptable answer too! Or I’ll make it easy and you can share what your favorite spring/summer clothing item is. Lots of questions to choose from!
Note: Thanks everyone for the great comments on yesterday’s mani/pedi post. I’m so glad that just about everyone enjoys them. And I do agree with many of you that mani’s get messed up easily so pedi’s are a “better investment.” Oh I’m dreaming of getting a pedi right now.
