An Ode To Comfy Clothes

An Ode To Comfy Clothes

Because they are the best parts of your life

Ahhh yes. This is the time of year for the comfiest clothes. I love it more than anything because now it is acceptable for me to wear oversized sweatshirts, sweatpants, leggings with fleece in them - all of the essentials. I mean I don't think there is anything better than being able to go to your closet and pick out your favorite comfy cotton sweatshirt and just snuggle in that and try to get warm.

I mean, sure, summer is a great season as well but it's way too hot! There is just too much stress going on trying to cool off. And I don't know about you, but being sweaty and gross isn't my favorite way to live life. I really prefer being able to warm up easier than cool off. There is also nothing better than getting in your favorite warm clothes and then covered up in a warm blanket. There is just nothing better.

Not only that but also those warm fuzzy socks that go all the way up to your knees - let's talk about those. They are super soft, wicked comfy, and they warm your entire leg. The best possible thing is that they also allow you to slide all over hardwood floors - which in my opinion is the best form of transportation.

There is just something so wonderful about getting in your favorite warm clothes and going out on a walk or even just staying in - it's just so comforting and it's basically like a safety blanket. I mean, have you ever been in warm clothes, a good blanket and a cup of hot chocolate and NOT been in the best mood of your life? I don't think it's even possible to be upset when in that type of situation.

If you don't have an outfit that is your go to one during the fall or winter then you have to absolutely go out and find one. You will never be the same afterwards. It's one of the greatest things that you will ever have in your life and it's guaranteed to change how you see the winter months - especially if you aren't a fan of winter to begin with.

So I encourage you to go out there and spend some time in Target or Kohl's and get yourself the comfiest outfit you can find. Get yourself the biggest and softest sweatshirt imaginable. Get some pants that are really great and comfortable to lounge around in. Most importantly, make sure that you have the ability to wear theses at all times because I mean, if you can't wear it in all situations is it really a great outfit?

Go out and enjoy those clothes and have the best winter months that you can!

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it


Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.
