The cross that I bear is being a person who hates dressing in costume who has friends who ONLY love dressing in costumes. Themed parties are all that happen in my friends' set, and I'm constantly chided for not participating with a full heart. Or even, like, a valve of the heart. But, I'm sorry. I don't love parties in general, and having to dress in costume for them? That is just too much effort for me. But I also hate being the big grump at the Halloween party, so needs must.

Inspiration suddenly just came to me! I'm going to be A Boring White Lady's Instagram! I'm going to dress in skinny jeans, riding boots, a tunic, a scarf, with nail art and my hair in some sort of blow out. And carry around a PSL from Starbucks. I think I can construct an instagram "frame" pretty easily out of stiff cardboard and some transparent film (smudged with Vasaline, perhaps?) and just slap the IG logo on the top corner of the frame.

Is this a dumb idea? I feel like I may have hit on the perfect don't-actually-have-to-dress-up costume, but maybe people will feel like I'm still being too lazy.
