Have you ever been emotionally, verbally or physically accosted in a way that makes you tell it as a story for the ages? I feel like every time Megan and I get together we have the most hilarious stories about being accosted in some way or another. In fact, during our day together we were accosted by a questionable man and his friend who reeked of alcohol and had what we suspect was a stolen camera… which they said they used to take a photo of us, which led to me losing my sh*t telling him to delete it. He never took one.
A few weeks ago I was stopped by a man on the street named George. Needless to say, if he was any indication on what dating is like in this city I don’t want any part of it! It’s a good thing that my jewelry doubles as weaponry. In the words of the scouts – “Always be prepared!” I was never a scout but they seem to know what they’re talking about so I’ll go with it.
Speaking of always being prepared. I didn’t get the memo that not wearing a jacket with sleeves is no longer appropriate for the weather outside! A sheer blouse and long vest makes for a great looking outfit, however it does not keep you warm…. at all. I did a bit of color and texture mixing for today’s outfit. I started off with a darker and edgier pallet and then added on the neutrals with the vest to warm it up and not be so cliche with the edgy pieces.
