I wonder if you can guess?
Maybe you can fill in the blank after looking at the picture….
Or at least time for layers…
Or Layer Time!!
I could go on…..
Good morning world and welcome to another day here on Planet Magnet.
Up here in the Northern Hemisphere the temperatures are dropping and everyone is starting to wrap themselves up in their thick winter coats that never see the light of day in warmer climes for fear of physically melting if we make the mistake of thinking it will actually be cold enough to wear them.
Personally I have always liked the winter season climate as it was the only time of year that I could feel cool in my body temperature. Plus it was one of the few times when I could feel cool by wearing extra a little extra clothing without actually overheating and ending up in the Accident and Emergency wing of the local hospital suffering from heatstroke with a saline drip sticking out of my arm…..
You see, since losing the weight I am feeling the cold so much more readily. I never used to suffer from cold and although my hands are still quite warm (well most of the time they are) my feet usually spend their day as blocks of ice. In fact, I am sitting at my desk in a perfectly warm home and my feet are actually cold at this very moment. No manner of sock appears to prevent the coldness creeping in to my Phalanges and Metatarsals so I suppose I am learning to live with colder feet than I once did. I suppose this is because I lost weight on my tootsies as well as every where else. In fact I lost enough weight to go down by an entire shoe size which in itself is crazy really!
But the cold feet aside, the great thing about this weight loss is that nowadays I am lucky to be able to wear layers, so regularly sport a Polo Shirt, a Sweater AND a Jacket. This was unheard of in years gone by. I could always wear the Polo but it was either a Sweater or Jacket but never the two together lest I was visiting the Antarctic 😉 Today I can wear a hat without melting, I can wear gloves and best of all I can finally fit a scarf around my neck and tie it the cool way by the simple “through the loop” method which is a double whammy because I get to wear the scarf AND I get the cool knot….! The only downside to all of this new fashion that I am sporting is that I am constantly on the look out for new ideas for what to wear along with constantly looking for ways to make a little money so that I may be able to afford the nice new clothes that I want to wear!
Many years ago I only bought designer label clothes. There was no other reason for it but sheer showing off because having the right name or symbol on the left breast meant more to me than having any money in my pocket. Nowadays I buy so little I have to make it’s freshness last by moving it around and wearing things in different ways so that the look is never the same. I still have the clothes with the labels but it is more for the fact that it nearly always seems to be the ones I like are the expensive ones, thus meaning I don’t buy much but I do buy stuff that can be moved around to other outfits so that I don’t ever really look like I am wearing the same thing over and over.
I suppose that due to my weight loss there must be a part of me that has changed back into the clothes horse that I am again becoming. My confidence in myself is obviously growing and I am once again enjoying being able to buy some clothes. Last year I really didn’t look for clothes and I was happy when I could get something that simply would fit and not look like it was sprayed on. Fortunately I no longer have that issue and am able to shop in high street stores and not worry about buying everything on line just to get my size.
So there you go, the Worlds Biggest Fridge Magnet is making a fashion statement and saying that we need to mix and match and layer. Look cool and save money.
Who would ever have thought it possibly. Fashion tips from a fat bloke 🙂
Stay out of the fridge.
