What does a concussed girl wear?

Vintage Scarf

Hello people I adore! Here are some shots of me oh so nonchalantly chilling by my woodpile. My neighbor came home and caught me taking these and it was awkward. I'm sure all of you have been caught trying to take outfit photos in a weird place at some time or another. It's kind of hard to explain to whoever is giving you weird looks, right?

Those of you who follow me on twitter know that I have been having a quiet week because I got a concussion on Tuesday night after a semi-unfortunate, partly hilarious sledding incident. My resort's ski patrol has a race every year which involves lots of dressing up, drunkeness, and a bit of speedy skiing. This year, the theme was saucerboy, Shane McConkey's alter ego. Here is a video of the race; our patrollers are the ones looking like they're having a ridiculously good time. (Some other patrols who shall not be named take the race waaay to seriously and don't dress up which I think kind of ruins the fun!)


I dressed up as "saucerette", the female version of saucerboy, and while saucering down to the lodge I got hit by one of the patrollers who was unsuccessfully trying to use an ice axe as a brake. All I remember is waking up in the back of the ski patrol sled and watching the sky go by, wondering how the heck I got there. After a few hospital visits I've been back on the mountain, and tomorrow I'm doing a backwards ski race with the other instructors, so hopefully my brain stays firmly in place! Tonight I spent the night baking 100 cupcakes as prizes for the kids who are racing (facing forwards, of course) against us. Hopefully I'll have some pictures to share!

This outfit is totally made up of recent thrift finds. All from Reno, which seems to be the best place in the world for thrifting. I wish I lived closer so I could go more often!

In other news, my godsister/soul soother/stylish thrift buddy started a blog, and I love all of the posts she has done so far. They make me miss her and her lovely Scottish accent and also San Francisco. Check her out over at A Fine Day for Sailing.
