As spring draws near, I’m digging into my closet and heavily cleaning it out. Spring cleaning has always been my favorite because it gives me a chance to get rid of the clutter and revamp my closet. It’s also the perfect time to consider getting rid of clothes I didn’t wear last year.
Looking into my closet, I’ve come to realize two things. The first is that I really didn’t “wear” much of my clothing. The major reason is obvious, we were under a pandemic, where staying in became the norm. Secondly, I realize that a lot the clothes in my closet didn’t scream “Always Aley” anymore. For now, it’s a mixture of random parts of my life. There is no story anymore. So in a quest to find the story, I landed here.
Def Leppard played a major role in my life during the pandemic. Music was very helpful, but for some reason this band filled me with joy. There was a period where all my tees were of this band and it stood that way. It filled me with comfort knowing that indeed I had found a story. The story of hope and how I hung on to it.
I wore this tie-dye tee from Target only once before on here. I brought it back to the blog, this time, styled differently. I wore it with my new star belt from the Buckle and these boyfriend jeans. It was a comfortable look that still made me feel cool and in charge. My boots, studded, gave all the rock feels the band tee needed. It was a lovely compliment.
I also realized that my hair is getting very long and I don’t know how to feel about this. I love my hair short, but I’m sort of digging the growing mane. And as spring sets to come, I’m entering a stage where change is needed. So I’m all for anything that comes with the new season.
