And once again, it's time to celebrate the imaginary holiday my friends made up in high school. Skirt day, the first day of the year when everyone pulls out a skirt. For the guys it was a bit misogynistic, but it was better than "Misogynist Thursday," which was, in fact, a real thing that they joked about every week. Sometimes I wonder what going to high school today would be like versus fifteen years ago (oh god, was that when I was in high school?!) - has the #MeToo movement changed anything? Or are the guys still celebrating the first day that girls' legs are on show?

Well today is definitely the first day my legs have come out this year - it's supposed to hit the upper 70's in the city!! Cue the cheers! This has been the winter that would not end, and I for one could use a little warm weather to cheer me up.

The biggest problem with the delay of spring is that I just keep on buying warmer weather pieces and forgetting what I bought a month or two ago. The dress section in my closet is about ready to burst with new arrivals, like this adorable polka dot romper. That's right, it's a romper - there are some secret shorts hidden in there! I appreciate that, especially with a wrap dress, because Chicago really earns that whole "Windy City" nickname.

I've tried on a lot of wrap tops and dresses this year and barely any of them work for a larger chest - they're all too flimsy or way too low cut and inappropriate. This one actually has a snap to keep the top in place but it was positioned all wrong for me, so I veeeeeery carefully snipped it out. Now I just need to sew it back on in a more appropriate spot, and I'll be all set.

So bring it on, skirt day. I'm ready for ya ;)
