I bought a new helmet today – my first Nutcase. I have a serious black winter helmet and a sporty silver helmet, so I needed something in between, fun and casual. I may as well start amassing helmets as some women amass shoes.
I also snapped up my very favorite skirt-to-ride-in ever, half off during Patagonia’s big sale. (Half of my non-professional wardrobe is from Patagonia sales!) I ordered it in pink and already have it in khaki. This skirt is like a dream: never wrinkles, falls softly, does not cling to anything in an unsightly manner, has zips up each side to allow for greater mobility and less modesty, and built-in shorts underneath. Dunway Skirt.
Another skirt I loved to wear all the time during the summer is this one below. I have it in black and slate blue. I did not buy a third, though this one’s on sale, too. Not quite as cute and flattering, but still a nice cut. This skirt is actually longer than the first, though the pictures make it look the oppositeInter-Continental Hideaway Skirt.
Both skirts have built in shorts underneath, which makes me more comfortable riding my bike in them! They also don’t tend to blow up in the wind.
Throw on one of these camis with built in shelf bra (love!) and I’m set for the day. I can’t wait for the spring and summer!
The best girly goodness shot of the day – I realized that the Rivendell Betty Foy has tiny little red APPLES painted on the frame!
And HEART cut-outs on the lugs!
I may not be able to resist this perfect, perfect bike. I can see it all now – warm summer day riding Betty Foy in skirt and tank with happy pink helmet.
Anyone else have spring fever?
