Smells Like Revolution

The women of Florence are starting to revolt. It’s in their brightly colored tights, their amber lens Ray-Bans and the way they leave winter coats at home even if it means wrapping wool scarves up to their ears.

“I can’t take it anymore!” they say, because we’ve all had enough of winter.

We’re ready to send our heavy coats to the cleaners and polish our boots for next year. We’re ready for bare knees and little dresses. Spring is so close we can smell it — or we could if it were warm enough to unwind our scarves a few inches.
