Or so rumor has it. Do you buy spring outfits or go straight to buying for summer?

In Texas we have two seasons, summer and fall. We have had virtually no winter at all. The weather has been rediculously warm and humid this winter. So I don't bother buying clothes for seasons. I buy and wear whatever I like because I know the weather will not cooperate with me. I'll wear boots in summer, sandals in winter. I'm currently shopping for more maxi skirts and am considering some gaucho pants for the summer season during weekends.

Dressing for work is perhaps the most frustrating of all! To stay cooler I'd like to wear short skirts for work but this is self-defeating because my work requires pantyhose with skirts. Wearing pants is hot so I'm always in a dilemma. I've resigned myself to wide-leg flowy pants in a lighter material that give some air circulation and I can go without the full hose that way. I still wear knee-highs but I can at least wear sandals. UGH!

I like both spring and summer fashions...softer fabrics and colors hit the spot.

I am from Phoenix so I would always go from winter to summer clothes (if you would even call it winter), but now I live in Denver so this will be my first "official" spring. Not even sure what spring clothes technically are but I am excited to go shopping for them!!
