I haven't done an outfit of the day post for a bit, mostly because I haven't worn anything interesting or new to the blog lately. I wasn't even going to blog the outfit today, because it barely qualifies as an outfit, but then it generated some interest that made it blog-worthy.
See, I work in a terrible part of the city. Like I've literally stepped over discarded needles on my way from the parking lot to the office. Hookers are a regular part of the scenery. It's not a nice area. I also have to park across the street from my office, so I have to jaywalk across the street all the time. All of this culminates in me doing a lot of fast walking with my head down, trying not to attract attention. So today I was walking to my car at lunchtime when a guy was walking down the street towards me. I keep walking with my head down, as I usually do when he yells, "Well hey there! Nice shoes! I like the colour!" You can't really tell from these oddly-lit pictures, but I'm wearing purple shoes with an otherwise very boring outfit that includes pants I never wear because they're too big on me and it's annoying. "Thanks," I replied, somewhat pleasantly, but still walking quickly to avoid any conversation.
Then he yelled again - "Everything else is pretty nice too!"
So apparently the outfit is better than I thought? Who knows. He was probably just another random crazy person.
