So the Folklore and Evermore eras are not my favorite from Taylor Swift. This is probably in large part that they are slow, deep, moody albums that came out during the pandemic when I was feeling my feelings more than enough.
That said, there are, of course, some gems on each of the albums. I listened to Betty not too long ago while I was working out. And the title today is a reference to Cardigan, an incredibly heartfelt song that tugs at all my heartstrings and I have to listen to sparingly for fear of losing it.
I think I’m always kind of trying to change my ending, trying to figure out what I want the ending to be at all. Right now, the next step I am taking in an effort to finesse that ending is my book event tomorrow at the Winter Park Library (at 2pm if you are in the area and want to join me!!!). I am pretty prepared as far as the things I can control, however, I have to be honest with you and say I am terrified.
I would much prefer to chicken out and cancel. To not find out at all if the room is going to be full and love my presentation. If this is the pivotal moment that will change the ending.
But I am not going to cancel. I am going to find out for better or worse. I have to for an incredibly wide variety of reasons. I don’t know what will happen tomorrow or how I will feel after, but I know I will have tried and done the absolute best I can, and at the end of the day that is enough.
I’m not much of a cozy clothes, cardigan kind of gal, and I’m still waiting for some serious sweater weather here in Orlando, but these neutral toned outfits are a tribute to these two albums. Including a sweater and a “cardigan” that I did not put on at all because I was way too warm.
And these outfits are two extremes in my wardrobe, the old in the sweater and silk skirt and glitter pumps, and the new in the metallic dress. I love them both and they both hold memories with the potential for more to be made.
For the record, I do also wear high heels on cobblestones and occasionally black lipstick. And if you don’t know what I’m talking about, go listen to Cardigan.
