Sometimes you just need a little something to jazz up a simple white tee and jeans as the weather warms. It might not feel quite like spring yet, but you know its coming and you want to can carry a bit of the spring blooms you know are coming with you.

The Tardiness of Spring Cowl is my homage to the need for Spring to arrive as we wait, most impatiently. In the Northeast, winter can seem endless. The days are short and the nights frigid. We long for Spring.

By April, we get restless as we await Spring’s tardy return. The days are getting longer and warmer, but there is still a bit of chill in the air where a lacy versatile cowl can help to drive away the nippiness.
