Ankles or socks? Wrists or sleeves? Bostonians appear to think these are not either/or questions. When it comes to dressing for the season, why choose? Compromise! That's the ticket.
Today I saw a woman wearing corduroy capris. Seriously. That's just weird. I think corduroy capris are as baffling a concept as short-sleeved turtle-necks. I believe rather strongly that if it's cold enough for me to wrap my neck up with material, then my arms will also benefit from material protection. And if it's warm enough for capris, making them of heavy corduroy is not a path to comfort.
I've already spotted a few other signs of spring around here: yellow and purple crocuses are appearing in the gardens along my street, and the first socks-with-sandals combo of the season was recorded on the T last week.
