√ DO Get outdoors before summer is over and enjoy the end of the summer/beginning of fall events that are occurring this month. For example, classic car shows or the ever popular Lobster Festival both happened in our city this past weekend! X DO NOT wander around for hours in the sun in a tank top with your messenger bag across your chest. If you feel like you are getting sun burnt on your arms and chest, and are carrying said messenger in one position all day, it would probably be best to put two-and-two together and realize you will end up with a very undesirable tan line. The last few days have required creative outfitting to cover up the white ‘strap’ across my chest (√ DO – chunky necklaces are a great option for anyone out there who may be in the same boat). Also X DO NOT Google image search “bad sun burn” when looking for graphics for your Wednesday Wisdom unless you want to be highly disturbed.
√ DO Decide you should get another job just for a clothing allowance. √ DO Go on random shopping trips with your mom to help her find a new purse & get ice cream out of the deal. √ DO Go shopping at Buffalo Exchange for a little retail therapy & unique affordable items. X DO NOT try on a pair of ill-fitting jeggings that instantly remind you of the quote Michael Kors said on Project Runway the night before: “Something should’ve been in that crotch that a girl doesn’t have.” –Michael. I thought I learned my lesson with the first pair of jeggings I owned, but clearly I didn’t. I think from now on I’m REALLY making a promise to myself to stop trying them on… not matter how good of a deal I find.
X DO NOT ask the woman at the DMV to look into her crystal ball to tell you if you will pass your driver’s test or not. She won’t think this is funny. X DO NOT Tell strangers at the DMV that you are going to have a hot flash FOR REAL. X DO NOT go around dropping your laundry & ‘bending and snapping’ at the laundromat when you a 40 year old are wearing a miniskirt.
