Yale week 4 :: of no expectations, Target returns and surrender

I have no expectations of today.

I think I’m hitting that wall. You know the one. The one that comes right around three-quarters into the semester. You’ve hit your groove. The kids are settled. You’ve left the Land of Exciting but haven’t quite hit Despair yet. Let’s just call this limbo Tedium.

Wow, how did I end up sounding like an excerpt from The Phantom Toolbooth?

I think part of this apathy comes from my diminishing clothing options. Yesterday was a decided low in the fashion department, so I spent a goodly amount of what should’ve been prime Game of Thrones viewing time last night trying to cobble together a presentable outfit for today.

So remember that frantic shopping trip the first week when I thought I needed to invest in summer cotton wear but the local Target had a woeful selection so I ended up snatching up whatever? Well, I never did a home review of the items – just shoved them in a drawer – but last night, after trying them on a second time, I realized there were pieces that just weren’t working for me.

The good news, then, is that I have some returns to make from my earlier Target haul.

The bad news is that I’m pretty much down to my last unworn pieces before I have to recycle through them.  I’m so desperate, I don’t even care about baring my arms; I’ll wear this tank top and love it ‘coz it’s “new”.

Honestly, at this point, I’m ready to throw in the towel and wear the exact same outfits every day of the week and just post random ramblings and random exterior shots of the campus.  Call it a hiatus from fashion until I get back.

What do you all think?

    I do agree that this outfit looks very nice. I also think it is a cool challenge for you to demonstrate how people can look nice with less : )

    I like the outfit! Stop with your arms already. They look fine! Why don’t you just mix and match what you brought? You can show all the different outfits you come up with them. I doubt anyone would care you’re using the same pieces. Everyone travels and everyone can’t pack their whole wardrobe.

      There are pieces I’ve reworn already and I can certainly do remixes like I did the first week. I just get so bored so easily. Maybe I just need to give myself a challenge/theme and go from there. Another 7×7, perhaps?

      P.S. You know yo’re taking me to Target next weekend so I can do my returns, right? ;p

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
