Fashion hasn’t been easy for me. I’m in my late thirties, and I still struggle with what to wear and how to accessorize it. But while I find myself moaning over how quickly trends change, I have to admit, a teensie part of me enjoys seeing “the latest” come, go, and then come back again.
See, I never really understood why my Mom found such delight in something I was wearing and exclaim over how it reminded her of her past.
Now I get it.
It’s super neato to see “reruns” of clothing or accessories I used to have.
It’s like I’m no longer the new kid in school. I’m the experienced student that knows what’s coming and therefore feels more confident. Sure, there is fun in the newness, but there is also fun in thinking to myself, “ah, it’s back. Here’s a second chance to decide how I want to incorporate it into my life.”
