Metamorphic periods are generally a time of deep metaphysical reflection, spiritual cleansing and that weird kind of sweaty but still cold weather.
Trying to find a definitive place during those fluid moments is hopeless, and that also goes for trying to pick an outfit out in the morning.
Somehow, I feel like I tend to learn so much about myself during these climate crises because it forces me to meditate on the fashion identity I will be trading in my puffy down parka for in the upcoming season. Let’s face it, over-20-degrees clothes bring about a whole other world of style that can be overwhelming in comparison to the options retailers provide us with to protect our bodies from horrible Canadian snowfalls.
Once this identifying decision has been made, post-Spring cleaning, I usually attempt to internalize the feeling that I wish to manifest in those clothes and attempt to remember it the next time I’m online shopping trying to decide if I actually need that deep-v velvet bodysuit that would look really cute with my ripped Topshop jeans and that simple gold necklace that I think I still have somewhere.
These transitional times, in fashion and existence, are intended to give us the chance to reflect on where and who we want to be in the future. Taking a minute to consider those questions will not only shape the coming months, but shape your mind into a more enlightened and even, more orderly state. This thought process will allow you to create a reference point when faced with tough decisions because you will already be aware of the standards you wish to maintain and goals you hope to achieve.
Take it from a person who had the bad habit of leaving her clothes scattered across the floors of her room, organization is not to be underrated, especially when it comes to making profound choices - including tonight's outfit.
