Fashion Non-sense Part Duh

Yesterday was full of big yucky badness, but I'll save that blog for my Monday blog. But in the meantime please enjoy this little picture i snapped after picking up the kids from daycare.



This is another example of Northern Michigan fashion flub. Yes ladies and gentlemen (do any guys read this blog besides my husband?), that man is outside his trailer shoveling in nothing but his pants boots and a wife-beater! Is he crazy? At least he had enough sense to wear boots but come on, a tank top? You're not THAT acclimated! I know people make fun of northerners because of our tendency to wear shorts and t-shirts in 50 degree weather, especially after a long winter. 50 is warm I tell you, but its January and it is totally NOT 50 degrees and look at the snow on the ground. Now I know it's pretty intrusive for me to take his picture without his knowledge and stick it on the net, but he's in public so that's fair game right?


Someone get that boy a coat or at least a long sleeved t-shirt. ...but, I do have to confess that I myself was not wearing a coat at the time I shot this but instead a long sleeve shirt and a very thick and heavy cardigan. So who am I to judge? Have a happy Saturday!

Yeah, Sassy I was the girl blowing snow in my jammies last night. At the same time, my five year old was also in his jammies riding his scooter in the freshly cleaned driveway. We did have boots, hats and coats on though. And it was dark so nobody saw how ridiculous we were.

That is so funny! We call them tough guys and we even have them here in Texas. Occasionally it will get cold outside and you'll still see the random dude in a tank top and shorts...idiot!

Brrrr, the high was 34 degrees here yesterday. I know I get warm shoveling but thats just dumb.

BTW I don't care how warm that cardigan is girlie, put a coat on!

Yooper said...

As a former Yooper, I'm offended. You try living in a baren wasteland, with snow for 7 months of the year, no electricity, and no bathrooms, eh! Ya, you'll go crazy too.

Don't feel bad that you live amongst the fashionably challenged. I'm from Idaho...I think we might be worse. Those redneck jokes definitely apply to a few around here!

Sister Sassy said...

Oh, I'm not talking about the fashion challenged because as my oh so chic co-worker can tell you most would think I am one of those people. I'll blog about it. It'll be a week of my outfits lol!

Will you focus on your mis-matched socks? And those of your children? Every. Single. Day.

Poor Sassy. It isn't her fault she learned about socks from Dobby the House Elf. If someone loved her they would do a sockervention and help her stop the madness.

Sister Sassy said...

I love Dobby and I strive to be like him. He was honerable and courageous till the end.

...um...maybe someone could just have a sock sorting party with me?

Hey yooper no offense intended. I was a yooper for 15 years plus I married one!!! Trust me I know all about crazy.
