I, along with the rest of America, went shopping earlier today. I know that leggings are back in style, and I cannot quite wrap my mind around that. However, just when I thought that leg-related fashions could not get any worse, I spied Pumptie. What is Pumptie, you ask? Pumptie is a monstrosity of a shoe. It's a shoe/bootie hybrid; it is, in fact, a shootie. Do I have to tell you that I saw a girl wearing very similar shooties along with leggings today? Of course I did. The combination of these shoes, which covered her ankles, and the leggings, which cut her legs right below the calf, made for a major tree trunk leg situation. Delightful! I was busy shaking my head in wonder at this when I spied a teenager wearing leg warmers over flip flops, and then my mind officially exploded.
