So today is Friday, I'm tired, it's the end of the week, there's snow on the ground, and it's cold outside. The last thing I want to do is throw on a dress, or something cute and uncomfortable. So, I didn't and here you have it - practical winter dressing. I think the look has style, it's just not glitzy-glammy style.
I should have warned you that you will rarely see me in stilettos in the winter. It's just not realistic or safe for me. I'll give you two prime examples from my college days...
- I ruined a BCBG suit after slipping and falling on a sheet of ice, rushing to get to an interview. I got the job offer - didn't accept it, ripped a hole in the knee of the pants and cut my knee and hand. Clearly I used my hand to break my fall...obviously that didn't help much.
- Then another time, I fell down a hill after a recent snowfall - it was like I turned my body into a sled. As I began to roll, I grabbed onto a nearby tree to try to stop myself from falling and the tree was full of thorns. So I let go and continued to roll down. Some guy saw me to help me, he stopped laughing by the time he reached me. I was ok, just some cuts on my hand. I didn't ruin any clothes this time, just muddied them up!
Now this what I call extreme winter sports! You guys didn't know that about me did you? Well yes, please laugh in my clumsiness - it really cracks me up, LOL! I hope you all have awesome weekends! I have good fits coming up since I'm going to a couple of parties...which do require heels and leg-bearing. ::rolls eyes and smiles::
PS - I know someone is looking at this pic going, WHOA- hair! I finished taking my braids down on Wednesday, and I've worn it out 3 days too many. I'm dreading the wash process that's taking place this evening. DREADING IT!
