Dear roomie, I turned our floor into my personal closet… as well as my chair… and your chair… and the futon… #SorryI’mNotSorry
You may be that girl who wakes up every day and spends hours picking out your outfit each morning (just to go sit through a 75 minute History lecture). I mean, could you imagine if that cute guy in your class saw you looking less than perfect?
Or maybe you are the kind of girl who is happy to roll out of bed and throw on your finest sweats for class. After all, you have to go sleep through a 75 minute History lecture.
Either or, every girl understands that awful moment when you look in your closet and realize you have absolutely nothing to wear. You stare at your overstuffed, overflowing wardrobe and think, ‘how have I ever managed to dress myself before?!’
This realization is often followed by individually taking every piece of clothing out of the closet to see if you can somehow make it work. I wore that black skirt to Shooters last week (I’m not Kate Middleton, no outfit repeats please!)— floor. White short shorts: do not need to give that creepy guy in Econ any more reason to stare—floor. My favorite skinny jeans: no thank you, I’d actually like to eat today—chair. Suddenly dresses, skirts, and tops are all over the room. Just about every Saturday my roommate comes back from dinner to find our room looking like a war zone. It’s an essential part of my “getting ready” process.
For some of you, this may not be a weekly occurrence. But, I’m sure everyone has experienced the panic and chaos that ensues when trying to find that perfect outfit. Whether it’s trying to find that perfect combination of edgy and pretty for a date with that super cool upperclassman, or you were searching for that amazing, conservative (but not ugly), dress for round three of sorority rush. You understand… but I think it may be time to make a change.
Thanks to Durham’s lovely 70-degree weather I have decided it is officially time to pack up the cashmere sweaters and put away my favorite cords and replace them with my summer wardrobe. So, no more layers to deal with, or tops and bottoms to coordinate, just one simple dress (but obviously not that one I wore last week). So no worries roomie, you might actually get a chance to sit in the chair and to walk on the floor without having to tip toe around my stuff.
Well, at least until I get my mom to send me my summer sweaters. What? Everybody needs a little spring cashmere.
