Motorcycle Mama

Monday, March 7, 2011

Ha ha. Do I look like a motorcycle mama? Like I'm riding that Harley down the road? No? Well, close your eyes and imagine it because that's what I see. I feel the wind in my hair, and I hear the roar of the engine. But most of all, I have this big enormous grin on my face because I'm just having a blast and laughing out loud! You know, the kind of grin you have when you're riding a roller coaster or doing something so crazy and daring that you just have to laugh!

Seriously, I have a love affair with motorcycles. I don't know why that is, since I have only ridden on one maybe half a dozen times? Probably less times than that even. Maybe it's because I associate motorcycles with risk takers and being so envious of people who could throw a little caution to the wind and take risks. 

Growing up, I always did what was expected of me: I was the proverbial "good girl." I wonder sometimes how my life would have been different had I taken a few more risks when I was younger, and done what I wanted to do as opposed to what I thought I "should" do. 

shirt -- Red Tab by Levi's
sweater -- hand made (thrifted)
jeggings -- 17/21 Exclusive Denim (Marshalls)
boots -- Trumpet by Wanted (DSW)

My mom made the fused glass pendant. I love how this was such a perfect match to my sweater!

And you can see that I am continuing my shoe obsession with my boots.


  1. I've never ridden a motorcycle, but I do love motorcycle boots.

  2. I love motorcycle boots, but they are too tough for me. I feel like a fraud. You look perfect in yours, like you belong in them.

    I love your thrifted, handmade sweater too. The colors are fantastic and finding handmade items to thrift is just fabulous.


  3. Tell us more about your mother's fused glass.

    Admiring your imaginary motorcycle. :)

  4. @Rebecca -- I have only ridden a couple of times. I have to find a picture of me from the first time that I rode one (it's actually my uncle's, but it's a pic of my grandmother and me from my senior year in college). And it's great!

    @Gracey -- I look like I belong in biker boots? wow ... I take that as a compliment, because I kind of feel like a fraud too! And can you believe that somebody would give that sweater away?

    @Terry -- It's something that my mom took up about 5 years ago or so? And her pieces are beautiful!

  5. That sweater is yummy and those boots rock my world.
