A Day in the Life Too... a blog about modest style

A 30-something mom's blog about modest style, DIY stuff, and limiting dessert. Just kidding. We eat dessert first around here.

alexander has nothing on this terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad day...

 In a perfect world, II + IIII = VI. But in my imperfect world, and on a fairly rotten day like today, II + IIII = XXIV. Feel free to disagree and/or flunk me in Roman Mathematics. But it won't change the photo.
 boots: target. leg warmers: amazon.com. tights: gift. skirt: gap. shirt: a.n.a. brand. scarf: sweden. bracelet: forever21. fake smile: discontinued.
This morning I shaved my legs for the first time in...a long time. Probably somewhere between 5 and 20 days. Give or take. (Preferably not "give," or whichever one makes it longer than 20...) And in doing so, I accidentally gave myself a minor cut (probably from being so out of practice) below my right knee. No biggie, it was small. I got out and got dressed. About 3 minutes later I glanced down and saw a little spot of blood on my tights right there.

Sweet.

Now, if I were a hygienic person or even an average specimen of human beingness, I probably would've changed my tights. Buuuuuut instead I simply threw on leg warmers and pulled 'em real high to cover the spot up. Which ended up being okay, because it's snowing. Again.

Without laying it on too thickly, my day has gone downhill from there. Which is why I posted 0.5 of a photo today, and why I'm making this as brief as possible. "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all."








*cough*




See what I mean? But tomorrow's another day. And I bet it'll be a good one.

Happy Thursday.

Well, the leg warmers look like they were planned! I hope your day gets better!

Felicity said...

I agree with Tiffany; the legwarmers definitely look planned. Even if your day went poorly your outfit looked great! Hopefully tomorrow goes better; at least it's Friday. And I'm glad to read that I'm not the only person who puts shaving off for way too long in the winter...

I was ramping myself up to tell you how every time you post a picture of these tights, I go totally wacky for the outfit. (A gift from where, do you know? I NEED a pair!) I'm so sorry you got blood on them! I hope it comes out.

Great outfit today! I love al the blues, especially with the hit of orange that bracelet gives.

Also, I wouldn't have changed for a little blood, either.

I really love all the different shades of blue. The leg warmers look awesome with that outfit!

MONKEYFACE said...

That is a sad story Brittney b/c I love the color of these tights too much. But if you were half of the half-human being I am, you'll just turn the tights around so the little spot is less obvi. I won't tell.

Kellie said...

I nicked my ankle yesterday due to lack of practice shaving. It reminded me of when I first started shaving a walked away with battle wounds.

Molly said...

Ummmm, leg warmers to the rescue! Brilliant. I wish I'd jumped on the leg warmer band wagon this winter. Now it's almost Spring! Dang it. That's all I can say. Dang it.
