4. Look down. You're wearing long socks and winter boots.

5. People keep asking you if you're cold.

6. People keep asking you if you're okay.

7. People keep asking you if you want to tie their jacket around your legs.

8. You walked to a party, saw some sweatpants on the street, and put them on over your shorts for the remainder of the walk. Not worth it.

16. People keep looking at your legs and gasping.

17. Why are they gasping? Because your legs are PURPLE.

18. Or BLUE.
