It’s that time of year again!!! That time of year where I stand in front of my closet for 20 minutes and go “OH right, I have no fall or winter clothes because I hate fall and winter and want to hide in my house forever! Great!!!”. And then I immediately get online and think “I need leggings! I’ll wear leggings with everything!!!” and I look for leggings and then remember that the more leggings I own the more sweatshirts I own because UGH HOODIES ARE LIFE! And then suddenly I’m drowning in leggings and hoodies and wearing Uggs and don’t have a single thing to wear for any event other than going to target.
Then I breath for a minute.
And just try to rethink some things. So today’s outfit is just a mash-up of things that I found but wasn’t excited about at all. That’s ok. There’s plenty of time to get excited. I don’t have to look event-ready all the time. And if I want to put pictures of myself in a hoodie and jeans on my blog then I could do that too. Because that’s what I look like some times. And that’s probably what you guys look like some times too.
So we’re all just gonna chill. I’m gonna breath a little bit more. I’m going to take it slow and build my fall wardrobe and try to really think about key pieces I’m missing and try to fill in some gaps. It’s gonna be ok, ya’ll. We got this.

I love cold weather, but it's something about finding clothes that fit over my body during this season that sucks. So usually I stand at my mostly empty closet going "Oh right I have nothing to wear!" and then I go online and find like 2 things out of the 10 stores that might work for me, and I check my bank account to find out I only have $40 and $15 of that is for shipping costs + taxes and I can maybe get 1 thing if I also have a coupon. Then I get it and find out it either doesn't fit me at all or just plain looks terrible on me or, in the rarest of cases, it fits and is comfortable, but doesn't match a single other thing I own. So I send it back for an extra $10-15 in shipping. Then I cry until I can't cry anymore. I am literally at the point where I'm just going to buy men's clothes and let people call me a boy because I can't fucking take this shit anymore. A $10 men's tshirt that is way oversized on me is thicker with better quality stitching than the see through shirts LB sells for $30 that don't even fit me. Most of my clothes are over 6 years old because everything that has been produced since 2010 is flimsy, overpriced garbage. I've tried replacing some of the shirts that now have holes in them, and I still have the old shirts with holes because the new ones wore out first.

I identify with this SO MUCH Cassandra!!!! I don't think a lot of people really understand that the industry's failing at clothing a population is FUCKING MADDENING!!! Thank you for stopping by and sharing your story <3

I am exactly the same, I'm not a fan of any type of cold weather so I pretty much refuse to buy things for it.
