Today as I type this post, It’s a nice, warm and sunny 87º, but last week that wasn’t the case. The NYC temperature took a 20-degree dip and I just wasn’t prepared for the cold, cloudy, rainy mess. I left my house knowing that the high was a high of 76º. How cool could 76º be? I mean, it was only 4º below 80º, right? WRONG. That temperature was the HIGH for the day — and the weather had a hard time reaching the day’s high. So, in rainy 65-degree fashion, this is what I wore.
It was a rainy day in NYC, so when I woke up I wanted a nautical look. I pulled the navy and stripes out of the closet, threw it on and ran out the door. (I did wear a red bag, but didn’t include it in any photos.) I was F-R-E-E-Z-I-N-G, as soon as I stepped outside. But I convinced myself that it would warm up. I must have been straight up bugging. So just to prove that I’m not insane, I asked my friends to send me pictures of what they were wearing. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one caught out there. (side eye to myself.)
Here’s what Tia had on:
You’ve gotta be kidding me. Why was Tia dressed like fall and I looked like it’s the beginning of May? Why did every black person on the subway have on a jacket that morning? Did I miss the memo? I couldn’t have been the only person who inappropriately dressed for this unpredictable weather. So, I asked Janet to send me a picture of that day’s look:
So, both Janet and Tia were dressed smartly, while I looked like I was a marine boarding a yacht for a spring time lunch. SMH.
I can’t be too mad at myself because on that same cold, foggy, rainy day, this is what Jason left his house wearing
oooh, Jason. It’s always bright and sunny in his world.
