Blazer- Thrifted, Dress, Headband, and Bracelet- Forever 21, Pumps- Urban Outfitters
Today, my measly little polka-dotted H&M umbrella was no match for the torrential rain and got beaten to a pulp. It all started last night when I ignored an urgent email from my mom labeled "FLOOD WATCH"---She's always been the mom-who-cried-natural-disaster. I had a group presentation in my English class today, and decided to dress in my best professional outfit to get extra brownie points- Suit, blouse, pearls, the works. I had just finished blowing out my hair when I noticed it was drizzling outside-- no biggie, I would just grab an umbrella. (Cue impending doom music)
As soon as I turned onto campus, the rain gods smote down with all their fury. Wind and water smacked me in the face and flipped my umbrella inside out, dragging me away like one of those unfortunate nannies in Mary Poppins. Massive puddles assailed from all angles and leaked into my boots. My glasses fogged over from being whipped by my wet hair. I put up a good fight, but the rain had me from the beginning. I actually started laughing like a crazy person and looked up to the sky as if to say "Okay, you won!"
When I stumbled into the building, I was met with interested glances-- "Wow, that girl got straight up OWNED" one person said. My group mate saw me and instantly started laughing-- I pretty much looked like a scared wet animal.
So as entertaining as pictures of that would be, I'm instead sharing photos of my outfit from Dad's Christmas party on Saturday. It was a good time---great food, dancing, even face painting for the kids. I think my favorite moment of the night was when I realized the label for one of the foods was misspelled-- it read "MEET EMPANADAS," which led me to think of the following scenario:
Empanada: Hi, I'm a meat empanada, nice to meet you!
Me: Hi empanada, I'm Katherine, [Gorges down empanada in one big bite] nice to meet you too!
Okay, so maybe this entire post has nothing whatsoever to do with fashion, but after today's traumatic experience, I could think about nothing else!
