We came up with a new saying this weekend, which will probably be going viral soon. Just keeping you in the loop.
forrest gump(ing): (v.) the act of wearing one or more running/work-out items in conjunction with one or more non-work-out items (ie a blouse, sweater, pea-coat, or collared shirt). Obviously this is because, like Forrest Gump, the wearer could potentially get up and start running at any time (perhaps they would never stop?!) By definition the wearer must be pairing these items INTENTIONALLY. If the wearer is not aware of what he/she is doing (ie he/she is not doing it for style reasons but out of desire for comfort and/or out of ignorance), it is not considered Gumping. It’s just being from the Midwest.
Gumping in Action:
Martha: Did you see what Asher was wearing to brunch at Roebling?
Madison: Yeah. He was totally Forrest Gumping!
Martha: Yeah. But those Nike Frees looked kinda good with those APC jeans.
Madison: Yeah. Totally.
