Technically it's spring but I'm still not feeling it. Not only is it not warm but I'm really not feeling the switch to spring fashion featured in every apparel storefront. Would it kill them to not focus on flowers or bicycles every year? Can we get some kind of goth summer theme going one year?
I'm also slowly realizing that I'll have to wear different clothes for different weather. What a drag! I didn't realize how completely comfortable I am in what I wear. I barely have to think about getting dressed any longer. It's really down to:
- black denim or blue denim with a boxy shirt and black shoes of some sort + necklace
- short dress with leggings underneath and black shoes of some sort + necklace
- ...okay that's it
This is what I look like almost every day in the colder months. Ubiquitous leopard print Baggu bag. Either my army green jacket or my Vaute Couture black Emily. Those jeans are actually supposed to be skinny jeans...after I saw that picture, I finally retired them.

^ sneakers: Keep neoprene Homers ^
There is something really comforting about just wearing the same stuff all the time. If I want to feel better about it, I just throw on some Aromi matte liquid lipstick. Speaking of...I am almost done using all the leftover samples I had from getting vegan beauty boxes for about a year. And I'm culling what just doesn't work, no matter how many times I want it to. Case in point - this mascara. It smells delightful and is supposedly made with tea. Yum! However, it's Raccoon Eye City on an average day.

So, it's almost spring and then it will be summer and I can't wear jeans all the time any more. Fashion themes: decidedly not-black. Painful. I'll have to dig out some dresses and get used to new "uniforms" all over again. I got a little panicked that I wouldn't have enough roomy sack dresses to loiter my way through summer in and ordered this gray parachute-material dress from Make It Good and an Everlane cotton dress. I also had my eye on this Uzi dress and this Mary Meyer dress (both cotton). For the record, I already have 2 gray parachute material dresses from Make It Good from last year, but they at least have prints on them. That's different enough that I can get a third, right? I can't help that it's the most comfortable, durable, not sweaty material ever.
Speaking of new stuff. I also bought these Matt & Nat shoes - I am not usually in love with white soles but I did like these and they're plenty comfy.
In preparation for hot weather footwear, I got these Insecta shoes from Mooshoes:
Now that you know my bank account is empty...how are you dealing with impending Spring? Excited? Not so much?
