It feels good to realize that there were some things we got right when we were younger: spending summers playing outside instead of adulting; knowing that Timmy who never shared was a jerk; wearing overalls and sneakers. There may have been (a lot) of outfits to regret, but there was good reason you wore that mini dress with sneakers, or bought that fuzzy knit skirt (even though you haven't worn it in eight months). I wore a similar flower neck piece in high school that I've neglected to rework into my wardrobe since that day. And I've had this rain mac for almost as long, and had forgotten its potential for sunny days. Both felt like they'd be iconic adds to my closet at the time, and I was right. Each adds not just detail but more personality and individuality. It may seem small, but it's satisfying to have one less disappointing outfit from the past.
Don't have too many regrets. Eat the cupcake. Get the bantu knots. Wear the slides with socks. Trust your gut.
