Fashion Weekend Edition: Sunshine, Rain Dream

11 Jan

Hey, Portland, can you spare us some sprinkles? Over a month ago Deanna bought a new city bike with fenders and a new hooded raincoat, and has warm leather boots to boot. She’s all ready for an every-single-day bike commute to a new job conveniently located close to home. All she needs is a little drizzle to test it all out.


Deanna and I visited five shops before she found the city bike of her dreams, a Linus mixte in sage green.

About Fashion Friday: Inspired by a 2011 Bike to Work Day challenge sponsored by the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, this series highlights the broad range of “dress for the destination” bicycling fashions.

    Surely this week has provided plenty of sprinkles to ride in!

      Not much rain here in the San Francisco Bay Area. Some in the North Bay and San Francisco, but all we got down in the South Bay near San Jose was a puff of mist.

    “Hey, Portland, can you spare us some sprinkles?”
    You better watch what you wish for, or you may get this:
    No polar vortex in the Northwest, just rain, and lots of it.

      I know I should be careful summoning the rain gods of Cascadia, but we are getting pretty desperate here. If we don’t get some rain this may be the first year that our golden grassy hills don’t turn green for the winter.

      Btw, if you noticed a spike in traffic to your blog it was me. Great stuff. Had me paging through stories for quite some time.

      Yeah, she probably won’t be wearing these jeans on rainy days. I didn’t ask her what her plans are. I think she might have some wool pants/leggings. Although to be honest, jeans don’t do so bad in the misty light stuff we get most of the time.
