What I wear, when I wear it, and how it works on my bike
Rode Linus in for the first time in what feels like months, but is really just a week. It’s gorgeous out there, so it’s crowded, so I went through the park for most of the route instead of along the Lake. I was going pretty slowly because I’m in a “suit” for the endless day of meetings.
My “suit” consists of the amazing Eileen Fisher boucle dress (which I should copy in a nice fabric, since my cheap fabric version worked well. I wonder if I have enough of the red boucle that I intended for the Vogue 8932?) and a short-sleeved knit jacket from Loft a long time ago. These are relatively casual meetings, but meetings nonetheless.
I rode a Divvy bike back from my meeting which is convenient and saves me (and my small NPO employer) cab fare. I always feel like a complete n00b on Divvybikes which are heavy and not terribly maneuverable because I feel slow and woobly. Still, they are convenient.
Yesterday’s test drive of the Simplicity dress went really well. Although I kept thinking of the flaws, no-one else noticed that the dress was even “homemade”, much less noticed the flaws. I have frequently given people the advice that “other people are paying far less attention to the minute details of your appearance than you think”, but it’s hard to internalize.
I should have asked someone to take my picture, but I did not think of it.
