I Think I Joined An Old Man Cult.

Trousers: Asos (buy it here)       blouse: Asos (buy it here)        Shoes: Call it Spring        Clutch: c/o Francesca's 

I joined an old man walking group this weekend. But see it all happened so fast! I didn't even realize I'd done it until the deal was sealed, and now I just feel like I sold my soul to the devil. You remember Myrna? The dog of the previously Jewish Atheist from New York? Well see I was out walking Indie and we saw Myrna and New York man (I should really learn his name) and we started walking. And then as we walked, Isabelle the golden retriever and his neon hat wearing owner joined in on the walk. And then what do you know Sydney the Australian Shepherd that makes baby making eyes at Indie came along for the walk too.  Before I knew it I was walking around the park with four old men reminiscing of the old days when things were simpler and how our kids turned out alright even after our terrible parenting. I don't even have kids people! Anyways, so as were talking, baby maker Sydney starts to chase Indie with his crazy baby making legs and I'm all woah I've got to get out of here before Indie's gets impregnated and what not, and then New York man suggests, "Hey this was fun, let's do it next week!" Before I could say anything everyone nodded their head and then went their separate ways. So yes, apparently now I'm part of an old man dog walking club that I have no idea how to get out of. I feel like I just joined a cult. So scary. So thrilling! What'll we talk about next? Fear of our children putting us in an old folks home!? Oh also, Indie will probably be impregnated within a fortnight by Sydney the horndog if I don't get out of this doggie cult soon. So pray for Indie's uterus, and that it will be barren unto the dessert.

  2. Ugh, accidental committments to strangers! I started smiling and saying hello to a chap who walks in the opposite direction to me every morning and evening on our ways to and from our respective workplaces. We're usually on opposite sides on the street, so it's nothing more than a passing nod and a sheepish grin. But the other day he was on my side of the street, walking with a frined, and he looked completely uncomfortable as I loomed into view! And I thought, "shit, have I bullied this man into making a Daily Smile Committment that he really doesn't want to have to maintain? Have I ruined his nice morning stroll into work?" Plus, he's kind of cute, and in my head I was already sort of telling our grandchildren how romantic it was that our eyes just meet in the street one day and the rest is history...now I suspect he thinks I'm a nutcase.

    I suppose what I'm trying to say is, don't be intimidated by friendly strangers and please don't feel trapped if you accidentally get duped into joining their (our?) cults. We were just trying to be nice. Anyway, you could alwys just walk Indie at a different time of the day, or maybe in a different park? Or you could move to a new city? Or you could emmigrate? There's plenty of options!

  16. O muh goodness. Good luck with this. Is it selfish that I am kind of excited to hear what happens next week on All My Old Men? At any rate, love the story and the outfit as usual. Also praying for Indie. And her uterus.

  18. Umm... this line almost made me spit out my coffee: "So pray for Indie's uterus, and that it will be barren unto the dessert." NICE!

    I have a beauty question for you. Your hair is so sleek and shiny every day. Is this the result of a good Brazilian blowout or a keratin treatment? I'm sorry if you mentioned such a thing in a post I missed; lately I miss a lot because in the grand contest of life versus internet, life is winning. :)

    But. Your hair. Is totally WOW. Any pointers for the rest of us?

  19. Ooooh my goodness, I just about died laughing at "horndog." I will certainly pray for Indie's uterus though!

    Your outfit is my favorite and I need some mustard trousers. And that shirt. Also, you are super beautiful. Just sayin'.
