Today I had an incident involving my skirt and the uncontrollable wind.... (You can already imagine what I'm talking about). Let me start at the beginning... Every morning, there is a group of 4 construction men that sit at a building across the street and stare at me when I walk to my car. At first it was uncomfortable, but I got used to it after a while.

Today I walked to my car carrying a bunch of bags that I needed to take to work. I looked something like this:

And just in that moment (while all these guys stared at me), the wind decided to blow my skirt uncontrollably. Oh, and it wasn't sexy like this:

It was more like this:

I tried to stop it, but I had way too many things in my hands. I immediately hurried to the car and leaned against it to try to save myself (while all these men were laughing), but the wind was persistent.

I threw all my bags into the back seat and tried to regain control of my skirt to lean off the car and walk to the front seat of my car... however, it was impossible! (So frustrating).

So you know what I did (As the men still laughed at me)? I just jumped in the backseat of my car along with all the bags! Yes, that's right, I crawled my way all the way to the front seat (in a skirt I might add) and finally was ready to go.

Boy oh Boy, I was SOOOOO embarrassed. I wanted to dig a hole and hide in it. I was also annoyed at the men for staring and laughing. Anyway, what can I do right? These things happen... I bet those guys will be staring even more tomorrow... hip hip hurray (sarcastic)

Do you have any incidents like this?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this skirt:

  4. ok marie, here's  what you do. go to a store & get some bicycle shorts & put them on under your skirt. then tomorrow say, hey guys guess what? wanna see this?  flip up your skirt wiggle your bottom. say i hope you had a good look. that's the last time. but seriously.  laugh about it with them, & act like you don't give a hoot.  it's  like little boys who  pulled the pigtails of the girls they liked on the playground at recess. some people never mature. it's a bummer that have to deal with that our whole lives.

  6. That is the worst when men stare at you, then to top it off they were laughing when your skirt blew up. Men are pigs sometimes, lol!  You look adorable though :)

  8. Oh my goodness, that's hysterical!! I mean, it's not funny that it happened to you. I'd have been mortified! But your recounting it was very funny! lol  That's happened to me a few times in swishy skirts.  It's just terrible.

    All that being said, you're still adorable! The colors on your skirt are so pretty and I just love your heels!
