Today we hit 63 degrees, and although we have had a ridiculous 50 mph wind, it was really quite nice between gusts. As if I needed an excuse to have a case of Spring fever after the winter we’ve had, this was just the little taste of Spring I needed to make me dig around my closet for my Adidas capri pants. In fact, after breakfast, I threw my jeans on the floor, grabbed my running shoes, and found those Adidas capri pants way in the back of my closet.
Unfortunately for me, I did not think ahead while in the shower this morning, so after slipping on my capris and peering down at my Sasquatch legs, I spoke a few choice Italian words and cursed my heritage. Not only did I have hairy legs, with my pale skin the dark hairs would have been noticeable even from afar. I imagined jogging down the road, warm sun on my face, the breeze blowing through my legs hairs as I ran (in slow motion)…not so attractive. I considered my options. 1. Shaving, putting capri running pants back on, and going for a run OR 2. Covering my hairy legs with long pants. I opted for the easier of the two scenarios and put my jeans back on. It’s just as well, tomorrow is only supposed to reach 40 degrees so any outdoor exercise would have been short lived anyhow.
My brush with Spring attire did inspire me to browse for some new Spring apparel though, and that’s when I came across this little beauty. Perhaps I’ll have to do my shopping this upcoming season exclusively at J Crew. It seems, along with the usual pastel colors and relaxed fit clothes, hairy legs are also “in” this year. If this trend is true, I’m gonna be the most popular Mom in town.
I wonder how they feel about hairy feet?
