Don and I had errands to run last Friday afternoon. He had his car parked at city hall since he had been biking/bussing all week, but we needed the vehicle so I rode the Dahon to school that morning, then to the parkade where we folded it up and chucked it in the car. Easy!
Here is me with jeans on. I am a huge fan of wide leg jeans, ever since like... 1992. For those of you who understand me, you will know how painful it was a few years ago when the only thing out there was skinny jeans. I don't have anything against any particular cut of jean, but shopping is so hard when your favourite cut isn't in season!
As an aside, skinny jeans are fabulous for biking. I love how you can tuck them into boots when it's cold. But, as somebody who has short legs and pretty substantial booty for a small Chinese girl, skinny jeans with the wrong top and shoes can go severely wrong. It's about creating good proportions and skinny jeans on me is a delicate craft.
This pair of Diesels is 4-5 years old and I wore them exclusively throughout the skinny campaign. Luckily, my wide legs made a comeback last year so I stocked up to tie me over the next drought.
