The other day while at work, I wore this outfit and I felt comfortable and fashionable. I wore the jacket in the AM when it was breezy and nice outside. I later removed the jacket because… let’s be honest… the temperature went from 79 to 110 in no time. I still wanted you to see the outfit with and without the jacket. What I found the most comical about this outfit is the fact that an applicant came into our office and he got to talking about how he could tell my hobby was fashion and that he had taken one look at me in my scarf and thought “she bourgeois (boo-zhee)”. I thought that was kinda harsh. A scarf makes me boo-zhee? Really. Because I put a little more effort into what I wear therefore I’m posh and snobbish? Not for a second… if you meet me on the street… and I’m not smiling its because of one reason. I’m thinking. I am a nerd and a klutz. I can’t do two things at once. I can’t walk in stilettos and text. I have to focus on one thing at a time. So usually it’s the walking without falling. I also think a lot. My mind is like a mile a minute and I tend to frown when I think. Does it make me a snob… not even. And when I realize I’m doing it… I try to catch myself. I try to smile to strangers so they don’t think that I think I’m better than they are. Doesn’t always work… but I try.
So anyway… this outfit in District Heights is apparently… well… to much… still don’t care… I love my clothes… also… you guessed it… another dress as a skirt. If you’re wondering why I’m wearing the scarf… it’s because I didn’t want to be matchy matchy… Do people ever make rash judgments about you that are ridiculously untrue? How do you deal with people and their judging? Do you let peoples misconceptions affect your fashion?
