I still haven’t typically mastered to ‘dress for the weather’. Today I wore my brown combat boots, leggings and a flannel shirt with a pashmina scarf thinking it would be perfect for a chilly evening. I didn’t leave the house before this so my knowledge on the current meteorology was exactly nada. I stepped out of my house and three minutes later, as I was walking down the street I realized I was dressed wrong. It was warm and people were wearing flip flops and tank tops. My feet were sweating in my boots and I couldn’t walk back home because I was almost at the bus stop. I felt like I would never master this art. Its stupid, if you ask me. In Madras I never had to ‘dress for the weather’. I’d just wear what I liked and would inevitably end up sweating in it. I don’t understand winter, spring and all that jazz. I only know summer. And summer is hot. And summer is sweaty.
I was thinking about this on the bus when one girl got on. I noticed she was wearing a T-shirt and white patialas. That’s what I wear to sleep but this girl made it work. Then I saw she was wearing a fluffy winter hat and I felt better about my boots. If people think wearing a scarf on the head is hot (like sweaty hot, not ooh thats hot!, hot) then wearing a woolen hat is worse. So she passed me to go sit at the back and I noticed that her white patialas were transparent, as most white patialas and pants are, and she was wearing a HOT PINK CHADDI. I wanted to yell at her, “WE CAN ALL SEE YOUR CHADDI!”, but I had to get off.
I may still be sweating inside my boots, but thank God my pants are not see through.

HAHAHA omg that literally made me laugh so hard!
Lol, I’m glad. My eyes were on fire though!
My eyes are on fire just reading that! I can’t even imagine what you and the remaining passengers on that bus were going through!
You know though, I’m willing to bet that maybe that pink chaddi was that color on purpose ;)
Yea if it was, I hope the fashion statement doesn’t last!
Thanks for visiting my blog. Followed you on blog lovin and I’m looking forward to reading more of your posts. I enjoy it so far. :)
Followed you back! I love the way you write. :)
I had to laugh at this one!!
I take a shawl with me and use it to sheild against the sun. It feels very hot, but anything to protect from those rays is fine!!
I should do that too! I find the sun to be extremely harsh here.
That was funny! My hometown is Chennai and I can completely connect with just dressing up and sweating in everything :)
Yay to Chennai!
