It’s COLD outside today. 21 degrees right now, but it was 8 this morning (windchill of 2). And yet these girls, these silly, silly girls, insist on wearing mini-skirts and boots, Without tights. And barely a coat. And then complaining on their phones that “it’s coooooooold”… well, duh. I wore a ski jacket. And gloves. And jeans. and a tank top, long sleeve shirt, and zip up hoodie. And I still was cut to the bone when it was windy.
I simply do not understand it.

I think I saw the same girls in walmart just the other day!
They were probably 15 years old, had on shorts up to here, tiny hoodies, and of COURSE the snow boots. Can’t go anywhere without the snow boots. You know, just in case it snows.

gotta be cute at all costs 🙂 Actually, they probably didn’t realize just how cold it actually was, or what that feels like.
I did it all the time in college. I’d go out at night in a tank top with no coat in the middle of winter in central Pennsylvania! It was too much of a hassle to wear a coat, and it was only a couple of blocks, at most a mile to where I was going. I’m sure people thought I was an idiot. I think we all sometimes pick style over comfort 🙂

Oh there seems to be a trend here among teenage girls to wear tiny little shorts, tights and Ugg boots. It makes NO sense…if you need tights and wool lined boots its not the season for shorts!

Yeah, there’s still snow on the ground here too, but apparently it’s trendy to wear snow boots in any season, no matter what the weather is like. Personally, I think that trend is ridiculous, but even worse is the short shorts in January.

HAHAHA KM @ your multiple layers. I routinely have on a camisole, a sweater, a zip up hoodie and a coat. I’m layered like an onion at all times … especially now with the Arctic wind aaaagh!!

lol. I was driving to work this morning and saw some girl at a bus stop wearing a short sleeve shirt. I, in my car with the heat at 74 and my seat warmers on, had my down jacket, scarf and mittens. I felt colder just looking at her! News flash: Blue lips, chattering teeth, frostbitten appendages and pneumonia are not cute!

Some girls like to show skin no matter what the temperature. Take comfort in the fact that you are warm and not so insecure that you feel the need to wear a miniskirt sans tights for attention when it’s 8 degrees outside. I always see those girls – especially out on the town in NYC in the dead of winter – and think to myself that social darwinism dictates that they should all get hypothermia.

My child left the house this morning looking like the abominable (sp?) snowman…LOL. She has learned the art of layering from mama. She even broke out her flannels to wear underneath her school uniform….LOL! She has to stand out in this cold in the morning to catch the bus so she makes SURE she wraps up.
..not that she owns a “tiny pair of shorts” anyway…not even for summer.

I cant not do cold weather at all. One of my least favorite things is being cold. I bundle up and I live in CA. Whenever Im anywhere near the snow I put soooo many layers on. Last time I went to Colorado I had on 3 pairs of socks! Im all for looking cute, but Im not getting sick and cold trying!

When I was in my 20’s ( like eeeearly 20’s) we would go out at night in our little tube tops and pleather pants a-la slave 4 u britney (it was the year 2000! holla!) in zero degree weather because we didn’t want to hold our jackets. WTF? Why? Why did I do that?

@sparkle I see people ALL THE TIME down here dressed like that. It,of course, doesnt get as cold down here as it does up there but still……
