OOTD :: of circuses, monkeys, and not my problem





“Not my circus. Not my monkeys.”

That’s my new favorite thing to say.

It’s a Polish saying and it basically means “not my problem”, or “eff off!” if you’re feeling spunky. And I think this mantra pretty much sums up my feelings this school year.

Today’s outfit matches the saying on so many levels:

  1. The blazer is apparently reminiscent of a circus tent. Or so Aly told me when she saw me choose it over my plain orange cardi.
  2. Blue leopard. ‘Nuff said.
  3. Still trumped by this warming trend, I had to toss my original post for today in favor of a more weather-appropriate outfit, and I wanted to tell the stupid sun to just eff off already because it’s supposed to be spring, not summer, and I literally threw this outfit together in two minutes so ha to you, stupid sun!
  4. And do I care that the dress is just a wee bit short? Not my circus. Not my monkeys.

See how that works?

I know, I know. I’m probably using it incorrectly. My apologies to all my Polish readers out there. But it sure does trip merrily from my tongue and I’m gonna insert it into conversation any chance I get from now on.

So clearly, I chose blue this Tuesday. And you, my friends? British, blue or Doctor Who? Do tell…
