This most recent cold front has officially catapulted us into the beautiful, magical time of year otherwise known as sweater weather. With visions of cashmere and fleece dancing in everyone's heads, let's take a moment to go over the things that make sweaters so dang amazing.

1. Comfort.

This is common knowledge for even the most novice of sweater lovers. Wearing a sweater is like getting a soft, woolen hug. And who wouldn't want that?

2. They can be worn all year.

It's common to see sweaters worn in some form or fashion no matter the season. Winter? Throw on a coat and some fur boots. Summer? Layer a lightweight one over a dress, romper, shorts, or anything pastel or floral. Literally any outfit, anytime is better with a sweater added. With that in mind though...

3. Sweaters are also seasonal.

Think autumn leaves. Shorter days. Pumpkins involved whenever possible. FALL, the sweet sound of every latte- drinking and boot-wearing gal (or guy), brings instant visions of pure bliss. Sweaters and fall go together like PB & J! As every aspect of life is just a little bit better in fall, so are sweaters.

4. They are unisex.

Sweaters have a certain practicality that literally anyone can wear them and look TOTALLY AWESOME. It's probably scientifically proven that a person wearing a sweater is automatically more attractive. Also the thing I love most about guys sweaters is how they are always 500% comfier than girls sweaters.

5. Christmas. Sweaters.

Because the only thing better than sweaters is sweaters that are Christmas themed. I don't need to say more.

6. Cardigans.

Essentially, cardigans are sweaters, but I like to put them in a special box because of the special place they have in my heart. Cardigans maximize the versatility sweaters already possess, and I never leave home without them (much to my friends' amusement). They are perfect for days that are too warm for an all out wool turtleneck but too chilly for just a t-shirt. I could go on and on about cardigans so I'll stop now.

7. Aesthetic.

As we have already confirmed, sweaters obviously make everything better. Sweaters are just more pleasing to the eye. I know if I am strolling through the mall trying to buy things I don't need and I see a mannequin or poster featuring a sweater, I am running straight for that store to buy five of them. There's just something about seeing sweaters that calms and comforts the mind, similar to a lavender candle or that first bite of a Chick-fil-a sandwich.

8. Sweatshirts.

The close cousin of sweaters, sweatshirts are yet another beautiful gift to mankind. A t-shirt and sweater combined, sweatshirts are the perfect combination of warm, stylish and COMFY. And you can get ones that say everything from a witty pun to a team you rep (like Texas A&M for example, can I get a WH**P!)

9. Warmth.

A more obvious and probably the most useful aspect of sweaters is their warmth. You can find sweaters for every level of warmth, from a lightweight cardigan for a warm breeze to a toasty turtleneck for those blistering winter days.

10. No two are the same.

There is an infinite number of sweaters in this world, which is both a blessing because there are so many to choose from and a curse because I want every. single. one. Now that you understand the true power and pure awesomeness of sweaters, Feel free to buy one in every material, shape and color. Or five.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
