Playing It Cool.

"I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not."

-- Kurt Cobain

Throw it back. Kicking it to 90s grunge. 15+ years later, I look back at the styles of the 90s and I am kind of in love. Those days were everything: Full HouseAOLTLC, and how could you forget the timeless starter jacket? Those things were dope! It might be the comforting familiarity of it, but a flannel shirt wrapped around the waist with a pair of faded jeans and a white tee it the absolute perfect outfit to just chill in. 

Just make sure to not overthink your outfit. Don't stress over clothes. Keep it simple. 

I've been traveling around southern Minnesota the past few weeks and have been rock climbing from Winona to Rochester. I've visited vineyards and explored small rural towns with abandoned barns. When out and about, especially knowing that the opportunity to climb may arise, I need to make sure my outfit can keep up with me. Or at least make sure that it is easy to change into climbing gear. 

So no matter what you are doing this week, whether you're climbing like I am, or running errands or at the office, make sure that you remember one thing. Keep it simple.
