These days, there seems to be a lot of magical thinking happening in society, particularly on the internet, where all the world's problems can be addressed with a bit of anonymous mud-slinging aided by the odd hashtag or emoticon. Whether it be a newfound obsession with the "health benefits" of putting butter in your coffee (eew) or a heated discussion on climate change or your reasons for not vaccinating your children, everyone has an opinion about what is right and wrong, and many of these opinions have very little to do with a little thing we sciencey types like to call "evidence".
Well, I've been thinking about it, and perhaps the ever-growing masses are right. Maybe evidence really is for suckers. Maybe belief really conquers all, and those of us who dare say otherwise are really are just poisoning the soup of life with our negative vibes. So today, in the spirit of shunning evidence-based practice in favour of magical thinking, I have dressed for a climate that is not the one in which I currently reside.
Sure, while it may look sunny and bright in the photos... and yes, while it can sometimes be rather balmy on the West Coast of Scotland in winter due to the Gulf Stream, Oh my GOD my flippin' toes are so cold in these shoes and denim is so not insulating like... at all, I can assure you that this look was born out of nothing other than my need to believe that at some point in this lifetime, it may actually warm up again. Boston...Wisconsin...I know you're feeling me right now. Word.
Now stop being so negative and go put on your bikinis. You have to believe.
