I wore a version of this outfit twice this past week. Once on Sunday to the the plant store where I ran into Sharon, and once on Monday to run errands.
On Monday, I was at Costco when a woman working there said, “I love that color! I have a shirt just like that, but mine isn’t silk. And, when I wear mine people tell me I look more Mexican. You don’t have that problem.” Uhhhhhhhhhh. What does one say to that? What does that even mean? Do certain colors make you look more Hispanic/Asian/Caucasian/Whatever ethnicity you are. And since when is that a problem?
Should I have said, ” Well, my father’s family is Hispanic. Soooooooooooo. I would like it if people said that to me. ” Instead, I smiled at her and then loaded my gallon of olive oil up on the conveyor belt. What do you do when you get awkward weird comments. Do you smile and nod or say something? I smiled. What would you have done?
Also, does it make it even more awkward to receive awkward comments while wearing jorts that you normally wouldn’t wear because you think they are too short, but just went with it anyways? I think so.
Thrifted silk shirt, handmade jorts, Nine West sandals, Forever 21 earrings, Tory Burch bag.
