After I had gotten dressed this morning and had merrily set out on my way, en route to the subway, I started to wonder whether I had just put on the same outfit that I had worn on Monday (albeit in a different colour scheme). And, if I had, did it really matter?
At a slightly higher level, I am also starting to wonder where exactly I am going with my clothes this Spring and Summer. It was my intention to try out the same theme that I was working with throughout the Winter -- the "Girl's Guide to Hunting and Fishing" theme -- but it is becoming apparent to me that I am moving more in the direction of a Western theme -- cowboy boots, western-style shirts, plaids, stripes, western-style belts, denim jackets. This is a theme that I am familiar with, having already worked with it a few Summers ago. There is no reason why I couldn't work with more than one theme, but I have a sneaking suspicion that the Western theme might take over. I am a bit disappointed. I don't dislike the Western theme, but I was looking forward to something different and new for me. It might be fair to ask why I don't just push myself towards the new theme. The answer is that I need to go with what feels right. And, right now, the Western theme feels right.
Going with what feels right is also why I may have put on today the same outfit that I was wearing on Monday. To answer the question, Does it matter? For me, no, it doesn't matter one bit. I can't ignore what feels right.
