Fashion Holiday Edition: Irish Spring Blessing

15 Mar

The luck of the Irish has not been with us this season. Paltry winter rains couldn’t turn our California golden hills into their usual emerald green, so it’s up to my green knit dress to add some color for St Patrick’s Day.

May the wind be always at your back and the road be always downhill. May the sunshine warm you, and the breezes gently cool you. Any may life be full of good rides. (And may this spring bring us rain!)

    I just discovered your blog a few weeks ago and have loved reading it. You have a great sense of style! Can I ask a dumb question? How exactly do you get on a diamond frame in a dress?

      Thanks! I don’t ride diamond frame bikes with skirts much, but when I do, I always wear tights or bike shorts under the dress. To get on, I lean the bike toward me to lower the top tube so it’s not such a high leg lift.

      I also try to position the bike so that fewer people are in line to see under my dress. It’s hard to be perfectly ladylike lifting a leg, even when you’re wearing tights or shorts underneath.

    That makes sense. Do you swing your leg over the top tube or over the back tire?

      Thanks. The dress turned out to be pretty comfy too. It’s from ModCloth.
