I don’t think there is an animal in the world I loathe more than those grey winged scoundrels we call Pigeons. Its not a phobia, more of a hate-hate relationship. They have a tendency to do little things that irritate me. They’re the only birds that stumble and trip when they walk, gawk at you when your enjoying your lunch, and WHY do they have to walk when they cross the street (lazy or suicidal?). Don’t even get me started about the time when a flock of pigeons flew right at me when my friend and I were innocently sitting around on the steps of Union Square.
Seriously its just ridiculous.
Even as I was taking these outfit pictures I had a bunch of pigeons walk into the shot and screwing the focus. So as I was browsing through a series of blurry pics (with the pigeons being the focus, of course) I suddenly realized something—my outfit was totally pigeon inspired! I shared the same gray and turquoise color palette as the pigeons, and the slouchy laid-back look I was going for totally reminded me of those lazy birds. I’m attaching one of the pictures with a pigeon in the foreground so you can note the resemblance yourself.
Ironic, its true.
But there’s an upside to everything. At least I’ve finally found something in common between me and the birds—the same taste in colors. Maybe I’ll learn to tolerate them more.
PS: I’ve been doing some pre-spring cleaning and uncovered this cute gray blazer from the depths of my closet. It belongs to my mother so it swims a little big on me. No worries, works with the whole slouchy attitude I’ve got going on.
