One of the best things about spring is the ability to ditch the puffy/heavy winter jacket and trade it in for either no jacket or a light one.  I have a weird jacket obsession.  My husband's always asking why I have to have so many in the closet and I do admit that I way overbuy on jackets.  And for the winter... maybe he's justified in his … [Read more...]
