A Transitional Stage

What is the emotional equivalent of a blazer?


We are in what is known as the transitional time of the year. You’ll see the headlines everywhere — How To Transition Your Wardrobe For Fall or 9 Style Staples You Need To Take You From Summer To Fall — and they’re not entirely unhelpful. This summer I became enamored with grandma-inspired night slips and I would’ve lamented their loss if I thought I couldn’t wear them for just a little bit longer. Thankfully, an oversized blazer proved to be just the styling tip I needed to transition it from wispy summer goddess to office ready business lady.

But these couple of weeks, while the temperatures have been cooling and leaves have been flirting with changing their color, I’ve also been going through a more internal transitional stage: the one from a pessimistic worrier to a positive being of love and light. 

"The minute I feel myself about to go into a deep thought spiral, I literally say, 'okay bitch, this is not productive. You need to not.'"

You see, my brain has been at constant battle. I’ve always been one to let my thoughts carry me miles from where I am. It’s what helps me as a writer, but it’s also what leads me to my most negative thoughts. And, in an effort to, oh I don’t know, be a better, happier human, I’ve been trying to stop those thoughts before they lead me into self-induced bad moods.

The way I’ve figured to make this transition is by telling myself to shut up. The minute I feel myself about to go into a deep thought spiral, I literally say, “okay bitch, this is not productive. You need to not.” This is usually followed by me trying to insert a slew of positive, empathetic thoughts instead. Is this working? Honestly, not as well as throwing a blazer over a slip dress works, but that’s the thing about transitions isn’t it? They take time.
