Christmas Nanny in the Rain

Sheer green blouse, Forever 21. Black shrug, INC. Red belt, Xhilaration. Pinstriped trousers, Forever 21. Black pumps, Michelle D. Green beaded earrings, import store in Okinawa, Japan.

Crazy title, huh? Well, I knew it was going to rain today, so I wanted to wear red to match my umbrella. Black and white and red seemed so predictable, so I went with black and green and red. After putting the belt on, I realized that I looked rather Christmasy, but decided I didn’t care. I went to leave the house and discovered my red umbrella is missing! I searched high and low, but had to leave with a blue and white umbrella instead. Not only does it NOT match my outfit, it says “Head and Shoulders.” No, I don’t have dandruff and I don’t use Head and Shoulders, but it was free. So, I got to work (and I thankfully didn’t need to use the embarrassing umbrella) and was told that I looked like a nanny (by the same guy that told me I looked like a school teacher last month). So, today I guess I’m Nanny McWawa, the Christmas nanny, skipping through a dandruff shower.

Nannies.. school teachers... does that guy have a "thing" for women in charge of children?

I like the new fringe!

I thought the same thing about that guy -- must be a fetish...

I love Christmas, so this is one of my faves!

I think it's the hair (french twist) that inspires the nanny/teacher comments. I don't even WANT to know what childhood memories I'm stirring up.
