after much humming and hawing, i've finally managed to find a girl's vintage cruiser that fits my tall 5"11 body! she's in great condition, and came complete with a vintage tire pump, upgraded breaks, and an adorable bell (that i can't stop ringing for the life of me). her name is leslie.
so we took ol' leslie and steve (jb's bike) to the beach to celebrate their union. mm, nothing better than a seat on the beach with your eyes on the sunny horizon. it was a beautiful day. props to jb for encouraging me to bike up those big hills. i was a total wimp, for reals.
this outfit was really practical for biking - the socks kept my legs relatively warm, the shorts were loose enough to be comfy, and the silk blouse added that femininity with its lovely peter pan collar. you guys have any tips on cleaning silk clothes at home (without a dry cleaner) though?
