What To Wear???

today is april 25th, early spring in toronto. however, today's high temp of 27 degrees Celsius felt more like summer, and the city dressed appropriately.
sun dresses - strapless ones, even! shorts, t-shirts, flip-flops, sandals and even cowboy boots with mini-skirts.

after a morning in the garden wearing wellies and cargo pants, i changed into a stylish t-shirt, black jeans and open-toe heels. breezey but warm, casual but stylish. parfait, i say.

silly me though, i wore that to rehearsal and rehearsal was a cross-town bike ride away. heels are actually great for biking, as they provide a natural pedal-grip. try it! anyway, wouldn't you know it, the high temperature and accompanying humidity brought with it a summer-like thunderstorm. dark, loud and windy. really beautiful and sexy. especially, if not only, when viewed from inside. during rehearsal breaks i went to the roof door to smell the air and feel the wind. i hoped the storm would have passed by the time rehearsal was over, but alas this was not the case. i walked out onto the street while the storm raged on.
in my perfect, sexy summer-like spring outfit, i had to ride back across town on my fender-less bike.
i went from this:

to this:

i brought a jacket in case it got windy, i brought a hand fan, in case the stage got too hot. i did not however bring a raincoat or sneakers. gee whiz, a girl can't think of everything, can she?
i don't know what tomorrow will be like, but i hope i am prepared.
