I'm finally not living in denial.

No more pretending it's not winter by wearing summer dresses paired with tights in 30-degree weather, a combination that has given me a mild case of frostbite and a permanent red complexion.

Spring has finally arrived, so my all-year summer wardrobe won't look as ridiculous, at least according to the calendar, if not the temperature.

For jewelry, spring has been in full bloom for a while, with flower motifs emerging in winter. But now it's getting extra nature-esque, with wings fluttering on many designs.

Check out this design by UnHada. These 18-karat yellow gold "Wing Drop" earrings with pear-shaped rose-cut diamonds make the wearer ready to liftoff into warmer weather.
