Clothing Styles and the Thermometer

Image

I spotted a young lady walking down the street the other day and I did a double look, and then another double look..

what IS she wearing?

It was NOT warm out, just above freezing, I had just scraped a light frost off the windshield a few minutes before seeing her.  Is she wearing skin colored leggings?  or skin colored tight pants? 

what IS she wearing?

As I approached closer, I saw a short jacket with a flair at the waist, very contemporary, very stylish!  But what is she wearing under the jacket? 

OMG

seriously?

really?

Shortest of shorts, shorter than short shorts, they couldn’t get any shorter shorts – that’s what she was wearing!

She surely must have been a tich cold wearing skimpy clothes, long legs exposed to the outside temperature.  I realized right then and there that I’m glad that I’m not of that age where needing to follow the styles is more critical than dressing for your surroundings.  I remember wearing running shoes for a whole winter in FSJ when I was in grade 12.  My feet were freezing, I slipped and slid everywhere I tried to walk.  But I would have been a DORK if I wore winter boots — and I didn’t want to be a DORK now did I?
