Molly Weasley: Style Icon
It's nostalgia, which is possibly an issue, I know. Nostalgia isn't a great thing to lament over too much, but I do it more than I should, and I miss wearing mini-dresses and knitwear and tights. These are all technically "in" still, but I used to live in that uniform, and I haven't worn it in ages.
Certain items of clothing are comforting I suppose. A pair of black tights. A worn in sweater. Warm toned dresses. These make me think of Autumn primarily, but also of comforting moments gone by. I think of warm drinks and crisp air, and binge-watching childish Halloween movies for two straight months. There's a good chance I've started that early this year.
Actually, all of those things have to do with Autumn.
Basically, personal style can be traced back to emotions and seasons, and specific memories, both good and bad. I'm going for the good. As the season of all out comfort returns, I'm falling back in love with pieces that enhance the happy feelings. Nostalgia isn't healthy to focus on, no, but in a way, I'm just falling in love with unapologetic personal style all over again.
I'm making my own "style" personal. I'm indulging in nostalgia. At least for today. At least for the moment. I change my mind all the time. It'll be different soon. I'll ramble about something else then.
