Sarah v. Mother Nature

You’d think the many hours a week I spend reading and highlighting textbooks would make me avoid neon colors in the rest of my life. But no, I went right for this highlighter yellow colorblock top and wore it with bright pink lipstick. This outfit seemed perfect for a brisk yet sunny day. And it was…Until brisk and sunny turned into DARK and SNOWY.

OK, the dark part wasn’t really a surprise. But the snow is not welcome in March! It should be spring, and I am going to make it spring with my neon colors! You hear that, Mother Nature? You won this round, but I’ll be back.

According to feedback from the survey I posted earlier this week, most of you guys read what I write down here under the pictures. I was hoping I would find out that no one reads this crap so I could stop trying so hard to think of clever things to say. Because some days, even really awesome and hilarious people like me just run out of things to say. So then they have to talk about how they have nothing to say. And then that’s awkward. And then they might as well just move on and tell you where their clothes came from.

What Season is It Again?

I swear it was fall a couple days ago, and now it’s 90 degrees. WHERE AM I? Oh, that’s right, I’m in Indiana. Where Mother Nature looks at the calendar and says, “Fuck you, seasons. I’ll do what I want.” (The Midwestern Mother Nature has constant PMS. She’s quite cranky.)

My solution was to be just as big a rule breaker as Miss Weather and combine two entirely different color schemes for two different seasons into one outfit. So there. Black/bronze/leopard for fall and mint/yellow for summer. And that’s how this outfit was born. OR maybe I very strategically planned this outfit so as to seamlessly transition from summer to fall. Nope. It’s the random one.

And by the way, I put my hands on my head all the time when I’m standing outside watching birds. It’s totally natural.
