Desperate Healthwise

Outfit of the Week #6

FashionBenny Joy SmithComment

I am not a skater. Not even close. My balance and co-ordination are so shocking that I am terrified to even attempt to ride anything other than a bike. Jokes! I ride tricycles occasionally. I always wished I could be one of those people who ride longboards near the beach, with bleached denim cut-offs and Ray Bans on my head. Those people seem so effortlessly cool and awesome, it's not even fair. My one try with a longboard required me leaning on someone and making them push me along, wobbling and screaming down the footpath at 1 km/hr, which was way too fast for me!  

In light of this revelation, and remaining on the subject of skating, I have named this week's outfit Hippie Skater Chic, a mash up of hippie and skater style. Note that in the photo I am holding the skateboard as I attempted to stand on it but came close to cracking my head open, which in retrospect would've been a great photo...
