That is why days like today are such a supremely wonderful phenomenon in my life. The sun beats down and warms your pale, pasty skin, the little crocuses start pushing up out of the dirt assuring you that spring is near, your shoulders relax, and everywhere there is joy and hope. Certain dudes in my life refer to this incredible first warm and sunny day of the season as Sundress Day. After a long and brutal winter of women being swaddled top to bottom in down, wool and fleece, we shed our layers and venture out in our favorite cool and breezy cotton, savoring that incomparable feeling of a dress blowing casually around your legs. Today is admittedly a little premature to be called Sundress Day... there is still a crisp breeze blowing, and as soon as the sun goes down it's going to be nippy out there... but today's warmth brings the promise that true Sundress Day is just around the corner, and here are some of the ones I've been admiring...

The countdown is on...
