My funny homeless lady story, and by homeless lady I mean myself. I have my own style and always have. I normally dress quite quirky and out of the ordinary for my neck of the woods. Heck maybe I dress strangely no matter where you’re from.
I love fall and winter the most when it comes to wardrobe pieces. I love layers, I love mixing patterns, and I love baggy ill fitting pieces. With all that being said I’ve told my bestie for the last several years my style has morphed into what I call, “The Homeless Lady Look.” We laugh about it, she’s probably embarrassed to be seen with me at times but it’s who I am. Thank God she loves me no matter what I’m wearing.
My Bestie has always assured me I don’t look like a homeless person, even though I know I do. So here’s where the funny story begins. I rode with Hubby to town the other day; which was a big deal because I seldom leave the house. He needed to stop into a big box home improvement store and I needed a few things from the grocery store that was across the street. I told him to drop me off and I’d walk across the road and meet him at the truck. So that’s what he did.
I ended up picking up more things than I’d planned and was loaded down with shopping bags. I started walking, mind you it was 30 degrees out, and had almost made it across the first parking lot and into the road when a lady pulled up beside me, assured me she wasn’t a weirdo, lol, and said she’d give me a ride wherever I needed to go.
I thanked her and said my truck was parked just across the street. Yep, that’s the moment I knew I do actually look like a homeless bag lady. I couldn’t wait to call my bestie and tell her someone tried to give this old homeless lady a ride. We laughed and laughed. The first thing I did when I could get sat down was to pray for that lady, God Bless her for offering me a ride. She said she wasn’t a weirdo but she certainly didn’t know if I was one. Just when I think the world is going to pot God reassures me there are good people willing to help others left in this world.
I’ve attached some photos of how I dressed throughout the week just so you can see my homeless lady style……..Now you know what I mean, right? I certainly don’t dress to impress. It’s a big deal if I put on what I call “real shoes”, normally I have on my Uggs that I consider house slippers. Aw heck who am I kidding I even wear the Uggs in public. Also I’m not wearing makeup in any of these photos, and I use a hat instead of combing my hair most of the time.
Thanks for laughing along with me today, and have yourself a wonderful Christmas week!
