Spring Feels :: A Fashion Post

Spring is confusing.  It's great, but confusing nonetheless.  I mean, Spring is waking up every morning and looking out my window to see what the weather is like...  Is it snowing?  Is it pouring rain?  Is it 90 degrees or 30?  Yeah, I don't know either.

But, Spring is so exciting!  It's like, so-cold-you-need-a-winter-hat-and-boots one day, and OMG I need a pedicure so I can wear my new strappy sandals the next...  It's never predictable.  It's like a change of scenery every few days. It's like a real life guessing game you're playing against the planet. God I'm such a dork.

Anyway, with all this confusion comes the complexity of my wardrobe.  I've never been one of those "I put my summer clothes away in the winter and put all my hoodies and sweaters away in the summer, look how neat my closet is now!" type of people.  Yes, I know it would help organize my life which everyone (yes, you, Mom!) tells me I need to do.  And I know it would help reduce the massive piles of clothes and over flowing laundry baskets I have all over our bedroom (sorry, Paul!), but I just can't make that type of commitment. It's too much for me to commit to putting all my winter clothes away right now because even though it's about to be 80 degrees on Saturday, I have no doubt that I could wake up to snowflakes on Sunday.  Point blank: I don't trust the weathermen one single bit, and I don't trust Momma Earth.

That being said, this makes getting dressed each day a project for me.  What will I wear?  What type of hat goes with it? Does a hat even go with it?  Is it too cold today for flip flops?  Too hot for sneakers?  Will I get sun today and then need to switch to my darker foundation for my face?  I just don't know, but I have a lot of fun/anxiety lying in bed in the morning putting together outfit ideas in my brain.  It's like a go to bed and wait and see type of deal I have with myself... another reason why I can't commit to picking out a whole week's worth of clothes on a Sunday.  Too much uncertainty... just.can'

Here are some of my Springtime inspirations:

So, people, let me have my Winter-Spring-Summer-Fall wardrobe in my closet, 24/7, 365 days a year.  Let me live my unorganized, messy-but-looks-put-together life. And finally, let me make a shout out to those who do put their clothes away, your life must be much less stressful than mine, and for this, I envy you.
