While I'm sad that the cold and the snow is going away, I'm overjoyed that I'm able to ride my bike to work again without having to cover my face or worry about wiping out on ice. It's extra sweet that I'm working days/nights again instead of only overnights so I can actually enjoy the ride. I feel like hardcore cyclists with their fixies and powerful calf muscles must judge me for pedaling down the street in my cruiser (/road bike hybrid) with a wicker basket but I'm lookin' fly so I don't care. Do you like how my bag matches my bike? I didn't do that on purpose. I promise.
Now that I can't just wear yoga pants and a band tee to work, I have to actually put effort into looking cute. My go-to look is something like this: a dress, a blazer, and shoes that are questionable to bike in. It works. Luckily, my newsroom isn't as "formal" as most offices are so I can get away with being a little creative here and there. Gotta look cute next to those hot, young interns, ya know?
