New Year, Same Hat

This is my go-to outfit right now: jeans, booties, sweater (or flannel), bomber, sunnies, and hat.

Each season I find myself gravitating towards a certain silhouette. Though I love experimenting, it is nice to fall back on an outfit that I know will make me feel confident and comfortable all day.

I have been like this forever. I always have a better day when I like my look. For instance, I always make sure to wear my “go-to outfit” on test days. The psychology of fashion is so fascinating, isn’t it?

I am also this way with my hair. Every now and then I will let my natural hair make an appearance, but when I do that I can’t stop fussing with it. When I blow out my hair I don’t have that problem. I feel more like myself. I used to feel ashamed and guilty when I straightened my hair. Friends always made sure to warn me of the damage I was causing and assumed I was trying to hide a part of myself that I was insecure about. But straightening my hair wasn’t about fitting in or hiding something. It was about wearing my hair the way I liked it, and that’s what style is all about.
