What I Wore {10/12/11}

Oh hello there. Last week, during the perfect summer to fall transition weather, I decided to get a little weird with my outfit. I usually try to look as close to normal as I can, mainly so I don't scare children. But I've always loved putting outfits together that are a little left of center. I also love to get stuff for free. Enter: this little sweatshirt. It's actually a hilarious story. The last few weeks I was in New York, I had one main goal- drink up all of my 4Loko so I didn't have to transport it back to the Midwest with me. Strangely enough, I ended up leaving with two 4Lokos that are now in my fridge in Ohio. But regardless, my mission was clear- get 'em gone. So one night, I was off my face on the Loko and decided to hit up The Dark Room with some friends. When we showed up, we were appalled to find a line out front. But my wedges were too high to walk anywhere else, and when you're trippin' on Loko, sometimes you just HAVE to dance it all out. So we waited. While we were waiting in line, we spotted clothes hanging on a chain link fence, either as if they were being sold, or given away. A normal person would have looked at them and scoffed, "Pshh, homeless people. Who's going to pay for dirty clothes?" Well, not me. I immediately said "OH MY GOD, I HAVE TO HAVE THIS SWEATSHIRT." I sincerely didn't care that it's made for a 6-year-old boy, or that it was dirty as hell. I grabbed it off the hanger and threw it in my purse. Everyone in line looked at me like I was cuckoo, and I have to be honest, I wouldn't disagree. It belonged to a homeless person! Allegedly. But it's now one of my favorite memories of both New York and the Loko. I still don't know what it's from, but I've decided in my crazy person head it's from a 6-year-old boy wonder firefighter who saved an entire family from a burning building, and left this sweatshirt behind as a token of his heroism.

This is actually the first time I've worn the sweatshirt since. I washed it, don't worry. I knew I had to pair it with something high waisted, because I'm way too much of a fatty to have my tummy all hangin' out. This outfit is actually the most I've had my stomach showing probably since I was 10. At first I was a little freaked out by it, but then I decided that it's a stomach, not a vagina. Who really cares?! I paired my homeless person sweatshirt with my high waisted black jorts from H&M, and go to black flats. Perfect summer to fall transition outfit.
