dress, denim vest, & flats: thrifted // feather necklace: Forever 21 // deer ring: H&M
See that sweet collection of butterfly strip bandages down my leg? Those little guys (and the underlying 2-inch gash) are what result when human shin meets vintage road bike pedal. Somehow, I managed to hit said pedal with such force that I completely slashed my shin open. Let me just say: ouch. I suspect I'll be wearing these fancy bandages to keep everything closed up and healing for a while. Meh. You want to know the sad part? I wasn't even riding the bicycle at the time. Nope. I ran into the sucker when I was walking through the dining room. Brilliant, eh?
I've posted this dress before (here) and it's still one of my favorites, even after a year and a half of wearing it. One of my favorite thrift store purchases of all time, especially since it only set me back about $3! I feel most comfortable pairing it with tights in the fall and winter, but I believe a hidden pair of bike shorts make it wearable with bare legs. This vest is another thrift find. It started life as a denim jacket but I hacked the sleeves off to make it a vest. Easy peasy. These shoes are one of my favorite pairs... they're so simple but I get compliments on them nearly every time I wear them (and they cost less than $5!) Oh, and this ring. I love this ring. I once consumed several shots of whiskey and punched a guy in the kidney with this ring (but that's a story for another time...)
Okay, sorry. I'm rambling. For those of you who wisely skipped that word jumble up there, here's the Cliffs Notes version of this blog post: My shin hates me. I love my outfit.
