Despite being in the middle of another snowstorm, I know that spring is going to be here some day. It has to be, right? Even in Vermont, June means green grass and flowers.  Since it’s been so cold an snowy lately, I decided to cheer myself up with a trip to the Christine Price Gallery in Castleton. To celebrate the occasion, I decided to wear my new shirt from Monroe and Main’s Spring Collection.

Spring Fashions And An Art Gallery

The gallery had artwork on display from artist, Richard Weis.  There were 14 different pieces on display at the gallery ranging from small to wall size.  They had a vaguely Asian feel to them and several were done on Korean mulberry paper.   Many of them were 3D with rope, wood or wire.

I love the Monroe and Main Green With Envy Top I received. It’s casual enough for day to day wear with jeans but could easily be dressed up with slacks and heels.  The neckline lengthens your figure and draws in to narrow your waist.

The gentle flair of the shirt helps hide your hips if that’s a concern. The Green With Envy Top is available in Misses or Plus sizes and from sizes small to extra large.

Monroe and Main Spring Collection

This is the perfect top for spring because it has 3/4 length sleeves. It’s a bit warmer than a t-shirt but not as warm as long sleeves. It’s soft and comfortable and the length is perfect for not riding up or showing things that you’d rather not show. Despite the gathered neckline, I was able to wear a shell underneath for modesty.

We desperately need scarves,because my daughters and I shaved our heads for Cushing’s Disease Awareness and to try to raise money for my cancer treatment. Apparently losing your hair is a symptom of Cushing’s Disease and so is cancer. I’d probably share the scarf or scarves, keep the purse then pass it to my daughters when I die and gift the watch. I LOVE the striped purse because it’s zebra-like colors because it is our Cushing’s Disease mascot for being a rare disease. If you have a rare disease or went to med school you already know why.
