Helmets are Good!

I rode my bike to work again today, and along the way I stopped and took my pics. Let me tell you, this bike saddle really hurts if I'm not wearing my padded bike shorts. Holy Girl Parts, Batman!

What I Wore That Did Not Include Bike Shorts:

2010-05-06 combo

  • brown slacks (George via Walmart)
  • animal print blouse (Lane Bryant)
  • green embellished cardi (NY&Co.)
  • brown belt (Target)
  • brown flats (via Ross)
  • green jewelry (hand-me-down)

It's not the most stylish accessory, but you've got to wear a helmet when biking, b/c how would I know what shoes to wear with my outfits if my brains are smushed on the street? eeeewww gross.

Safety first! =)

Just wanted to say that this olive green looks really lovely on you.

You always look great but I think this colour is extra wow.

You wore that beautiful outfit to ride a bike?! How long is the ride? I woul dbe afraid to get all sweaty and (gasp) get my "good" clothes dirty!

I love the cardi, looks great on you and I love it w/the printed shirt under!

". . .Holy Girl Parts, Batman!"

yup, that brought my beverage straight out my nose!!!! LOL!!!! Ouch! I can so relate, T! Padded bike shorts are genius.

You and that olive green are a match :-)

that outfit is spectacular,how do you get away with not having "hat head"?

Kimberly said...

Gorgeous in green! I thought about picking up one of those cardis during the 50% NY&Co sale, but never did and I am very sad!

Rhianna said...

I love that shade of green.
It must be a short trip.
I was wondering the same as the people above: what about hat hair or getting sweaty?

Tina said...

Michelle - safety is definitly first! Thanks.

Sarah - the ride is 3.2 miles each way according to Google Maps Bicycling directions. I'm not going to lie. I do get my good clothes a little sweaty, but not any more so than if I was to eat lunch outside. I won't be able to do it much longer though b/c it will get too hot, even with me leaving at 7am.

V - thank you very much!

Jean - seriously, I don't know how people ride bikes without the padded shorts!

Lesa & Rhianna - I think I avoid major helmet head b/c it's such a short ride. It's only about 18 minutes and my head doesn't get too sweaty, so it's not bad. It probably helps that mt hair is long and mostly flat, so a little extra flatness isn't too noticeable. And there is the fact that it wouldn't really matter in my office if I did have helmet head. :)

Kimberly - I bought the cardi during that sale. It's still on sale, but no longer 50% off. I think when I linked to it yesterday, it was 30% off?? But don't hold me to that.
