Despite many Minnesotans' claims to the contrary this year ("Oh, it's been such a mild winter. It's practically spring!"), there are still officially 37 days left of winter. Clearly, I am counting. 

And while I have been learning more and more how to be in the moment, live in the present, and all that other hippie jazz, I couldn't help getting excited when I got my first signs of spring: girl scout cookies and fashion magazine covers touting "100 new looks for Spring" and all that shite. 

Nevermind the fact that it is still barely 20 degrees here in Minneapolis and that it snowed on May fucking first last year. When spring comes this year, I am going to be ready to grab it by its fashionable balls.

So with all that in mind, I present to you my springtime wish list of looks for less inspired by a weekend of leafing through fashion magazines.
