Dear retail outlets, January is not spring. Spring does not arrive until March. Here in the midwest, January is the DEAD of Winter.
I find it insensitive to see email promotions in my inbox for "woven sandals for spring!" I believe this calls for a #FAIL.
"But you can prepare for spring," they all say. Not possible. I will still likely be donning the snow boots to tread anywhere in early March and who knows, maybe May. My current sandal stash is in a plastic storage bin collecting dust under my bed.
So please, retailers, have pity on those outside of "warm weather climate regions." It may even add to the distress by adding 10% off.
