I'm going to wear this while watching high school basketball. Tonight's event is one of the hyped-up annual games, and last year it was really exciting, so I have great hopes! My only worry is that this color combination will turn out to match the rival school...
I'm not naturally inclined toward sports in either ability or interest, but I like rooting for my alma mater's team and watching my sister do gymnastics in a cute uniform. (However, it does really annoy me that the cheerleaders only turn out for the boys' teams.) During the previous season I discovered that I find basketball quite entertaining, which was a fun surprise. As a bonus, there are several attractive coaches, one of whom is such a prince that my mom calls him Coach Handsome. Occasionally the players are eye candy as well, because inexplicably some high school boys have six visible tattoos and look like they're almost 30. (Not that the tattoos are what's attractive, since teenagers with ink haven't always made the best design choices. But I'm one to talk, since I got my tattoo a couple of months after turning 18.)
This brooch was a gift from Marisa Noelle. I did a Google search for "old time bicycle", and Wikipedia told me that these big-wheeled ones are called "penny-farthings". Here's the reason why:
That's an old British penny next to a farthing. Makes cents now, doesn't it? (Ha! I am astonishingly hilarious.) When I saw this, I was like, "Ooooohhh!"
You may have noticed that I switched to having my shirt tucked in, and I settled on that. But I would like feedback. Which do y'all think looks better?
