“Hello Mother Nature” said the guy in my U.S. history class when I sat down next to him wearing my floral print jeans and new flower garnished hand band (one of two things that I bought while I was away at my competition) on Friday. Little did I know that if my life was a novel, that compliment could be considered foreshadowing seeing as Mother Nature showed up while I was at school because the temperature rose from the 30 something degrees it had been when I left to a very sunny 72. My sweater went from being functional and cozy to out of place and irritating while the headband went from being stylish to artistically functional.
As you all may be able to tell, I am in the process of appreciating all of the joys of wearing oversized cardigans. While my height and stature may not appreciate them all that much, the part of me that loves to be swarmed in blankets 24/7 during the winter enjoys it very much. It makes me look a little bit less ridiculous whenever I feel the need to tell people about my desire for a blanket made specifically for my shins and ankles because they tend to get quite cold.
