Ultimate Fashion Faux Pas

Today I am wearing a pink polo shirt, pink Boston Red Sox cap, white Bermuda shorts, white sneakers, and flesh-colored compression stockings. Yes, compression stockings with shorts, this is what I have chosen to wear today.

It looks awful.

But I have to wear the stockings, and it is going to be pretty darned hot today, so I have to wear the shorts.

Maybe people will be so busy looking at my obvious semi-baldness that they won't notice the stockings ;^)

These stockings are flesh colored, but they have a band of white silicon dots along the top which looks terrible but miraculously keeps the stockings in place. (There is something super awful about compression stockings that fall down and have to be constantly pulled back up.)

Anyway, I plan to enjoy the sunshine and sights on Bonaire.

I'm sure the stockings look worse in your mind than they actually do. Anyway--who cares if they help your ankles.
Love ya,
