I used to have this sense that I should be able to walk into my closet and get dressed in two minutes or less.
And also, I should be wearing every item I owned at least once every couple of weeks, or it didn’t belong in there.
I don’t believe that anymore.
Now, instead of trying to get dressed as quickly as possible and feeling unreasonably irate when it take me a couple of tries to get something I’m happy with, I’m trying to embrace it as a puzzle to solve. And if I only wear something a couple of times a year, but it’s PERFECT those couple of times a year, well, that’s okay then.
I also feel like I’m getting simultaneously more adventurous in my dressing and also a better sense of what I like.
And I finally finally feel like I’m starting to get some sort of handle on the whole “texture” aspect of dressing myself. (Not only is this sweatshirt quilted, it also has nifty gold zippers up the side that you can’t see, thanks to my vest).
