What to wear?

You know you’re pretty off the wall if your biggest worry is what to wear…

For two years now, I’ve had two outfits.   I wear one until I can wash it, then I change into the other.  Simple.  Basic. No thinking involved.  Just pull out whatever happens to be clean and put it on.

So now I’m getting ready to head up to New York and have a meeting scheduled a few hours after my plane lands and a live TV interview a couple hours after that – and I have nothing to wear!  ARGGHHH!

I know,  I know…  I have absolutely nothing to complain about…  But dang – do I walk into the TV station in my old, ragged, worn-out biking clothes?  Or do I frantically try to pick up something when I get to New York?  I actually think my best bet is to simply borrow something from the friend I’ll be staying with…

About Nancy Sathre-Vogel

After 21 years as a classroom teacher, Nancy Sathre-Vogel finally woke up and realized that life was too short to spend it all with other people's kids. She and her husband quit their jobs and, together with their twin sons, climbed aboard bicycles to see the world. They enjoyed four years cycling as a family - three of them riding from Alaska to Argentina and one exploring the USA and Mexico. Now they are back in Idaho, putting down roots, enjoying life at home, and living a different type of adventure. It's a fairly sure bet that you'll find her either writing on her computer or creating fantastical pieces with the beads she's collected all over the world.

    Nancy,
    Love this wrapper skirt http://www.teamestrogen.com/product/apparel/bottoms/skirts/c0-c1-c24-c28.html

    Used it over my bike shorts when cycling.
    Makes more sense that a skort where you have to wash to whole outfit rather than just the bike shorts.

    A agree – I love the skorts and wear them all the time at home, but it’s way more hassle than it’s worth on the road. Much easier to just wash out the shorts part. Thanks Rachel!

    I also only wear padded shorts with the Terry wrapper skirt on all my bike rides. As a matter of fact, I wore the same outfit everyday for eight months on our S.E. Asia trip. I just washed the shorts and sleeveless shirt every night. Sometimes they were a little damp in the morning, but they soon would be damp anyway from the perspiration caused by the heat.

    Good luck on your trip to New York.
