You know how you can be in a bad mood, but if you smile enough, just the act of smiling can turn your mood around? By turning that frown upside down, you can actually trick your brain into being happy. It’s totally a thing. Look it up. Sometimes I like to use that mentality to attempt to change the weather. Like, maybe if I dress like it’s springtime, I can fool myself into not being so fucking cold when I go outside.
Around this time a year or two ago, I was in NYC with Joel visiting friends and I only packed cute Spring dresses, a pair or two of leggings, and no coat. It was 15 degrees. I basically would have died if my friend, Andy, hadn’t literally given me the coat off of his back for the entire weekend.
I’m not sure if you can tell by the photos in this post, but I was turning blue being outside in the snow with just my new Chicwish dress on. Moral of the story is you cannot, however hard you try, change the weather. You can only bundle the hell up and think warm thoughts and wait for Spring to show her beautiful dumb face.
