I feel like it’s your lucky day, I swear my usual (rare) real life uniform posts are a good 25% more awkward than these photos. because un-awkward photos of me makes it your lucky day? I don’t have a clue why. I owe all the credit for the less awkward photos all to fall clothing. I love summer (LOVE summer) and spring is the best season there is (pants, sandals but no jacket weather is probably my favorite). And even though I complain about winter and often fall too (but only because it eventually turns into winter), there is something so comforting about fall and winter clothing. Sure a tank top and shorts is comfortable in 35+C temps, but it’s also a little awkward being without so much fabric.
I know I’m still not making much sense, but bare with me. Fall and Winter clothes remind me of being wrapped a blanket sitting on my couch. An oversized sweater, a warm scarf, a big comfy parka? All of it feels like that blanket is wrapped around me all day, basically fall and winter attire feels like I’m wearing a big security blanket all of the time. Spring and summer it’s minus the blanket and way less than half the amount of clothing, not awkward but less comforting.
This is not an ode to fall and winter (okay fall is pretty cool, look at all the color!), because let’s be real warm weather trumps everything. But maybe an ode to clothing security blankets, that make life or at least photos a tad less awkward.
I hope you all had a super Halloween, we forgot to take photos – like zero photos, even from my phone. And I even dressed up this year, or did I? There are no photos, so I could be lying. 😉
