It actually happened yesterday, so the official day will be recognized as the April 9th, 2013, the best day of the year. I am talking, of course, about National Skirt and Tank Top Day. New York City, being the capital of the world, decides this day every year.
This is the day when, after another harsh and unforgiving New York City winter, it finally gets warm enough for local females to start showing some skin for the first time in months. I first noticed the lack of layers on the morning commute, then at the office, where the more revealing business attire was in full force. You will see girls jogging in short shorts and tank tops, on the subway in tight jeans and tighter tee shirts, sitting outside at happy hour showing skin for the first time since early September. The coats and sweaters are going back in storage, and when that happens, the bikinis and sundresses find their way back into the world. It’s a beautiful thing.
The best day of the year has arrived, I would like wish you all a very happy National Skirt and Tank Top Day, it’s the most wonderful time of the year!
