Ultra Conservative, Ultra Boring
It's been happening gradually over the last 2 years, but it is a profound difference for me. I was never like this before.
I really like it for myself right now, but I realize that it is extremely boring.
Everything I wear these days is so....basic. Basic jewelry. A basic dress. A basic handbag. Basic hair. Basic everything.
I'm not sure why my tastes are changing.
It isn't that I no longer care. I do care, and this is what I care to choose right now.
I actually get excited if I see something basic. A solid color draws me. A plain leather handbag with no frills catches my eye. Unlike other girls, I don't even see all the fun, funky jewelry for sale in Target. Instead, from across the store, I narrow my focus on a pair of basic studs.
I'm also completely content wearing, washing, and repeating. I don't change my jewelry from day to day. Again, it's not that I don't care. Rather, it's that I get excited to repeat the same jewelry pieces I had on the day before. It's like I want to live in them. Why is this? Why have I gotten so intentionally boring? Why am I hunkering down, all content and cozy in this fashion rut?
If you don't believe me that I'm getting this way, please observe the following:
Notice a pattern? Rather boring, right? Is it my age? Is it my hormones? Who knows!
