Depending on which day you read this, there are currently around 40 days until spring officially starts, but we’re already beginning to see its effects. Sure, there’s snow on the ground in some parts of the country, but even the chilliest regions (where I live being one of them) are witnessing other signifiers that spring is indeed on the way; lighter and longer days.
While I ordinarily love the winter months—bundling up and heading out for a steaming hot chocolate is one of my favourite pastimes—this year I find myself willing springtime to come. And what better way to prepare for its arrival than by thinking ahead to all the spring jackets I’ll get to wear.
