Oh, the Weather Outside is Frightful






20121221-223325.jpgIn a 24-hour period on Thursday, Indianapolis saw 50 degrees, 20 degrees, thunder, rain, snow, and 50+ mph winds. I’m not sure how else to deal with these conditions besides rain boots and half a sweater.

Yes, this is half a sweater. I’m not sure exactly what the designer/manufacturer was going for, but I was intrigued. I guess it was supposed to be like a shoulder warmer slash turtleneck slash short poncho? I got it in an XL (I normally wear an XS) so it fits more like a really big infinity scarf. I feel like I wouldn’t have liked it in my normal size. It would have been too constricting. Anyway, I got this thing a few years ago. Clearly it did not become a trend because I haven’t seen much like it. I don’t wear it very often, but the insane weather on the eve of the “apocalypse” seemed like a good occasion.

  1. Never heard of a half sweater either BUT It looks good as a jumbo infinity scarf! I love the rain boots. We’ve had the same weather here in KY and it’s killing me. I can’t even talk now 😦

  2. The weather may be frightful but you look absolutely adorable and I like your glossy Wellingtons, such a sexy color.
