That thing that you dread happening happened to me. A few weeks ago when it started to get hot outside, I pulled out my tote of summer clothes that had been stored away for nearly a year, excited to get some new things into my wardrobe mix, and as I slipped on those cute blue flowered shorts from last June, the excitement dissipated.
