Outfit: Spring Bicycle Ride

May is off to a lovely start.
After wasting away most winter, I finally dragged my bicycle out for a spring ride through the park near my house. I still go out in winter and take photographs in brisk-er conditions, but spring is when I really start to enjoy these outings again and take my time with photographs. Now is when I start to fall in love with the outdoors and there hardly seems like a better time to be enjoying nature. Jeans are getting a higher rotation in my closet lately and not just because they are so practical for riding my bicycle in (although the practically does appeal)! I was always a little worried about wearing white jeans, but these ones feel so spring-y and perfect right now. The biggest downside of white jeans is how easily they get dirty. I didn't realize I had a grass stain on my bum (from sitting in the grass, who would have thought?!) until I was out later in the evening and Thomas pointed it out. Very handy of husbands to point out grass stains when you're already in public rather before you leave the house...still who will notice a wee grass stain when I'm wearing as pretty and busy a top as this one by Manoush? It's the perfect breezy, loose fit for warmer months and I adore all of the details. It's a perfect statement piece to set off with simple accessories and understated basics (like a pair of jeans with a stain on the bum...).
