A common side effect of ambivalence is cold feet. I challenge you to think of one positive thing about having cold feet. The wish-washy-ness is either effecting someone else, failing something that was planned to fulfill oneself, or more literally, needing a warm, fuzzy pair of socks.
Fortunately, ambivalence is something that I, not only cannot relate to but will take precautionary measures to avoid. People are easy, make your own decisions for you and you’re good, but summer in Miami has an unsettling, daily degree of uncertainty. Almost everyday the forecast consists of sun, high humidity, clouds, showers and possible thunderstorms. Additionally, I really hate cold feet, figuratively and literally.
Like that ex-boyfriend that shows such great signs of trying and improving only to inevitably drop the ball, the sun has been out almost every morning, only to be raining just in time for the commute home. To combat the fluctuating, contradicting weather and ward off potentially wet toes in an air-conditioned room (hell), my footwear has been strictly sneakers and boots.
Now, to maintain in this state irresolute, it’s all about versatility. I wore a pair of BDG distressed denim jeans that have never graced the blog. They were originally $76 and I grabbed them for $24 at Urban Outfitters. With them, I wore an eggshell colored, loose, silky tank (by Joie, not on the blog), my Aldo hi-tops and (here’s the dealbreaker/outfit-maker) my bar III shirt dress. I have worn that shirt dress in so many different combos, during different seasons, in different cities! Check it out below!
So… to recap, know what you like and don’t like, stay prepared utilizing versatility, do you and carry an umbrella, just in case you get caught out in the rain.
