Casually in the cold
Remember back in the days, the first week of school was LIT before anybody really knew what LIT was. Reuniting with distant buddies, rocking a fresh new hairdo, clothes and shoes was everything! Then there were others that waited a few weeks in before busting out their new threads. Well, that seems to be my aesthetic for the new year. Self re-evaluation + relaxation = the demonstration. THEN UNVEIL THE NEW YOU IN THE NEW YEAR. Sure it's a no no to the social media rule #1 of consistency, but we all know rules are made to be broken.
