What I wear, when I wear it, and how it works on my bike
Rode my newly tuned-up Linus to work this morning. Pretty morning: cool, sunny, calm. Lots of joggers, though, and I had to wait to pass because of on-coming traffic for the first time in months. Biggest thrill: wearing shoes, not boots without having cold feet. I did wear my bike knickers, but leg warmers probably would have been fine. I’m also in the Fluevog Friendship Sharon shoes!
I’m in a sweater dress from H&M. It has stripes–I love stripes on a sweater. Overall, the dress has a nice shape: fitted bodice, a-line skirt with a nice swing to it, although it’s a bit high-waisted. It’s a good between cold & warm dress, especially with the big wool sweater I am wearing today. I rarely got any use out of this sweater when I first bought it–I lived and worked in old buildings with good solid radiators and was always warm inside. Now, I live in an old building with inadequate forced air heating and work in a modern building with bad ducting choices. I am always cold now.
I wore a light jacket (the Nau transporter blazer in merino with repurposed taffeta lining) for the ride in. As disappointed as I have been in their clothes the last two years, their jackets and coats are still among the best I’ve ever owned.
This dress is one of the few things I own that’s not a crew neck (this may not actually be true, but at this moment, I think it’s true). I usually wear the Kendra Binney pendant with it because the greys go so well together, but today I’m wearing a sterling pendant in the shape of a stylized flower.
