Cat Burglar Chic
I wasn’t going to post these photos.
I mean, let’s be honest: I’m dressed like a cartoon cat burglar, aren’t I? There’s just no ignoring it: in fact, I couldn’t have made this outfit look MORE like a cat burglar if I’d tried. Which I didn’t, just for the record: seriously, my only real thought process here was something like, “I like stripes: I will wear stripes! Ooh, and I’m obsessed with wearing berets right now: I will also wear a beret! It will keep my head warm!” And then I got out of the house, started taking the photos, and was all, “Wait: am I a fashion blogger or a cat burglar? A fashion burglar or a cat blogger?”
Anyway, as I say, once I realised what I’d done, with the stripes and the beret, and the burgling, I wasn’t going to share the evidence of it with the internet. Because no pictures means it didn’t happen, right? And if it didn’t happen – or if it DID, but no one KNOWS it happened – then no one can laugh at me, or make fun of me behind my back. And I worry about that, because of course I do: doesn’t everyone worry what people think of them, even just a little bit?
The thing is, though, I’ve been worrying about what people think of me my whole life now, and it’s really no way to live, is it? It doesn’t stop people talking behind your back, or thinking something negative about you either, so what the hell: you might as well dress like a cat burglar and give them something to talk about, hey? Because I DO like stripes, and I DO like berets, and, as an added bonus, I think I know what I’m wearing for Halloween this year, too!
P.S. Those of you who’ve commented about all the snow in my recent posts: these are all older photos that I’m just getting round to posting – we’ve not had weeks of snow, thankfully!
