As spring semester of my sophomore years draws to a close, I can’t even fathom how quickly college is going by. Let’s not even talk about it.
This semester has been very experimental for me in many regards and I think that my style has reflected that. I got out of my comfort zone and tried to wear the lesser known items in my closet and pulled tags off of things that I’d been saving for a rainy day. Experimentation is key, especially when you’re still cultivating your sense of personal style.
Turning twenty was a huge catalyst for making some stylistic changes. I had this delusion that twenty-year-olds are far more put together than teenagers when in reality, being twenty is a hell of a lot like being nineteen. Nevertheless, I felt pressured to appear more coherent and polished. I tried to embrace that concept of coherence and at times, completely rejected it while I was in denial about actually being two decades old. It’s a lot to process,
Despite the sheer absurdity of some of the s*** that went down this semester, I pulled myself together and sported some nice looks. Life lesson: when everything’s a mess, you can always put on a cute look and pretend that everything’s okay. Street style photographer extraordinaire Bill Cunningham put it best:
“Fashion is the armor to survive everyday life.”
