sporty spice.

 tanks, scarf: Forever 21 / denim shorts: GAP / leather cuff: c/o Salvage West / Chrome Heelys : c/o Heelys

okay, said with a stoic Dwight Schrute-like face: false

sporty spice is the Spice Girl that i am the absolute least like.
i am uncoordinated, a total klutz. always the one falling on her butt (see above photo).
i was that girl way back when who you knew at the skating rink or roller rink who was either on the floor on her face or holding onto the side railing for dear life. BUT i was also the girl determined to get back on my feet and not stay on the ground. it's probably why i survived gymnastics (many sprained, twisted ankles, backs and knees) and why i always won many roller rink races to win those yummy red and green watermelon Popsicles - because as often times as i fell on my face, i got back on my feet and didn't stop until i stayed on my feet. 

to be honest, i don't have the agility or quickness as i did back then, but i am still a sucker for things with wheels. my youngest sister had a pair of Heelys (sneakers with an actual wheel - so that you can roll, instead of walk!) when she was little, and i (nerd alert!) have always wanted a pair. so i was stoked to try my own skill at Heelys with this pair (the Chromes, which btw are super comfy whether or not you are rolling away!) - and i have to be honest, it's def looks easier than it is but like i said, i am going to get this. so that the next time you are shopping at the grocery store, you'll see me roll on pass you and you'll say to your friend, whoa, was that sporty spice? and i'll yell back at you, heck, yea!

much love.
{happy wednesday, friend.}
