Word Dog, AWK to the WORD


Blouse: Target, Skirt: Made by me, Belt: Thrifted, Necklace: Vintage Thrifted, Shoes: Thrifted

I propose that there's nothing more awkward than your skirt flying in the wind. You're taking baby steps so as not to recreate a Marilyn Monroe but inevitably there's one step that's a little to flambouyant and your skirt pops up. You're knees bang together like you have to pee all the while you completely stop moving and hold your skirt down, grasping at it with both hands. Meanwhile some old guy who isn't looking where he's going runs into you because of your sudden stop making you feel all the more of a doofus. Yeah this was my whole day yesterday, over and over again. Stop. walk. cling to skirt for dear life. stop. walk, whoops sorry did you just see my skivies my bad. I've had enough embarrassment for one day so I think I'm going to play it safe tomorrow, and the safest bet of all are overalls, there's no letting those things get out of your sight. They're hooked up to your dang shoulders.

Speaking of overalls I saw a guy on campus today with overalls on and a red tie. I'm not sure if he was serious because he had a funny smirk on his face that screamed, "DON'T YOU THINK I'M SO FUNNY FOR WEARING A TIE WITH MY OVERALLS!" Either way I applaud him. Not only did he tell that terrible wind to shove it with his buckled up pants but he looked confident doing it.

Smirky Overall Man, I salute you.

  3. This just happened to me a few weeks ago! I was wearing a dress though and the wind definitely wasn't being nice. I'm pretty sure some people saw more than they wanted to see that day. The print on your skirt is BeaUtiful!!

  5. I always take the hem of my skirt, scrunch it up, and awkwardly hold it when it's windy. I think that overall man has the right idea.

  7. I LOVE this outfit! It's so spring-y I'm gonna die!

    My skirts will fly up on non-windy days. Not that I'm a floozy or anything. It's those darn subway grates in the sidewalks; perverted things keep lifting up my skirts.
