WWD: Layered


Riddle me this...how may layers is tooooo many? Shirt under sweater under cargo jacket under faux fur vest?

What if I told you that my office is fricking FREEZING. It's over 100 years old, the old train depot, a cool brick building that is LITERALLY cool. So cold that we huddle over space heaters at our desks that dry the air so much that my eyeballs shrivel up and fall out.

So cold that in the 6 years I have worked there, we have had hot water in our bathroom maybe 5 times, and by "hot" I mean "barely lukewarm but thank GOD it's not so effing cold this time that my frozen fingers might break off."

And speaking of bathrooms (which many times have large cans of Krispy Sauerkraut stacked in them - what can I say? we share the building with the Chamber, and they need that much Krispy Sauerkraut) - but SPEAKING of bathrooms, our building was so cold yesterday that both toilets backed up because the effing pipes to the toilet WERE FROZEN.

Frozen toilet pipes means that Shannan cannot use the bathroom freely whenever she wants, which means that Shannan automatically has a desperate urge to pee every 5 minutes. Or worse. I don't have a problem with public poo-ing - I mean, when ya gotta go, ya gotta go. Word on the streets is that there are some people who actually HOLD a poo until they get to the privacy of their own bathroom, but not this guy.

Why am I even talking about this? We were talking about LAYERS, people. FOCUS.

So which is better? Just the jacket? Jacket and fur vest? Too poo or not to poo, that is the question. If you're so inclined, you may share your poo phobias in the comments section. Are you a DOOOO it anywhere kind of person, or do you hold it when doody calls? And if so, HOW?????

You know, some blogs may be making you think about what is going on in Egypt, or how to be a better mom, how to improve your life, but not this guy. Nuh-uh. We're all poo, all the time. And maybe a chuckle or two. Now get! Don't let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya. Have a great weekend!

Call me Old Faithful because I'm pretty regular and I cannot even IMAGINE people who hold their numero deaux. Nature is calling and I can't afford to let it go to voicemail!

No vest is my preference.
As for public pooing, don't I wish...I just. Can't. Do. It.
But my li'l sis, who is a total prissy-pants, totally drops a deuce in public. She says that way you only risk a stranger smelling it, and never your friends, family, etc.

Don't know what it is about this outfit but I adore it! I'm pretty sure I will be heading to Charlotte Russe after work to see if that jacket is still in stock.

LOVE this outfit (get it, LOVE because of the sweater - ha? Oh give me a break I'm sneezing my head off here - lol!) I'm digging it with and without the vest - you are the layering queen my dear!

Oh and I don't like to drop a deuce in public, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do(do)!
