Texas A&M Muster
This was not the original post I planned for today, but today is too important of a day to not acknowledge it.

Do you struggle with seeing new trends each season and have an overwhelming need to try them? You'll buy something, hang it in your closet, come to it over and over again and can't figure out how to fit it into your current style. After six months, you'll find it shoved in the black hole of your closet and say, "Oh snap! I can't believe this still has the tags on it."
