I guess change is in the air? Or something? And by 'change,' I mean the need for a new wardrobe. I mean this in all seriousness, actually - fall is swiftly approaching, my jeans are all but worn out, and I have one pair of work-appropriate, non-jean pants that still fit me. I need shoes that aren't flip-flops or ten steps from falling apart. I have some cold weather tops that are probably good for another year but no plain long-sleeve tshirts that still fit me. I have plenty of ankle socks but probably need knee-high socks and some thicker tights. I definitely need a new winter coat. Basically I need to toss about three quarters of my current wardrobe and obtain a decent number of new pieces that I can rotate on a regular basis.

My clothing priorities are shifting, which is throwing me off. I still prefer jeans and tshirts, but I'm starting to realize that I need button-downs and nice pants/skirts and better sweaters for the office more than I need a new superhero tshirt (lies, I always need those). Can't wear sneakers and flip-flops all the time, either - have to toe the line between comfort and office-appropriate footwear.

...dear god. Is this the next stage of growing up? Is this what that feels like? Or is it yet another part of the quarter life crisis I've been battling for the last couple months?

Anyway. I bought new shoes this morning - ankle boots that I've been told will go with skirts AND pants - so that's a good start, at least. I'll hold off on everything else for a bit. Maybe I can convince Cathy to go shopping for me - she tends to make smarter clothing decisions than I do.

Ah, Tuesday. You're weird.

EDIT: I also need to decide whether I'm growing my hair out or keeping it short. It's just about shoulder-length again. Why is this so hard. :(
