I know that may not be what you want to hear when you’ve posted a tough face, but it’s totally true – in a bad ass kinda way! :) Reply Making it Lovely May 20, 2011 at 10:59 am I felt ridiculous giving the tough face! I’d much rather be adorable. Reply cindy May 20, 2011 at 11:03 am I am so jealous that you have Derby Lite in your area. Wish we could get it out here in Boston. Reply Making it Lovely May 20, 2011 at 11:23 am They’re looking to expand! Fill out the form for “I want a Derby Lite in my town” so they can gauge interest. Reply Mirakel May 20, 2011 at 11:10 am So cute, oops, I mean, I’m scared! :-) Reply Funnelcloud Rachel May 20, 2011 at 11:11 am So cute! Do you get a tough derby name to go with your tough face? Reply Susie May 20, 2011 at 11:17 am There’s no rule that says you can’t be bad ass AND adorable at the same time — and here you are proving it! P.S. I’m with Rachel — I want to know your derby name! Reply Making it Lovely May 20, 2011 at 11:20 am Elle DeGore? I haven’t found one that I like better, so maybe I’m going with that. Reply Giulia May 20, 2011 at 11:20 am OMG, you look so cute ;) Love the pink tights. Reply design elements May 20, 2011 at 11:20 am adorable! happy weekend Reply Rachael May 20, 2011 at 11:34 am Love your pink tights! Do they not run if you fall? As for the derby name, how about Black Loves Blue? Reply Making it Lovely May 20, 2011 at 11:39 am They probably will eventually, but I have a surprising amount of derby-appropriate legwear to fall back on! Black Loves Blue is cute. Reply Laurie May 20, 2011 at 11:38 am Looking good! what no pink helmet? Love the tights and is that the gap body bottom that was possibly too short? Reply Making it Lovely May 20, 2011 at 11:41 am The very same. I love them! And I didn’t like the pink helmets (too fluorescent), so I went with a sparkly lipstick-red one instead. Reply Gwendolyn May 20, 2011 at 11:42 am Awesome picture! You look great! Reply shortsweetseason May 20, 2011 at 11:45 am Dang, lady! You look smokin! I cannot believe you just had a baby!

Shout out to River City Roller Girls! Have fun!!! Reply Making it Lovely May 20, 2011 at 4:17 pm That’s why Derby Lite works so well for me. It’s a two-hour time commitment, once a week.

I love rollery derby :) My husband and I always go see the windy city rollers at least once or twice during their season. Reply Tara May 20, 2011 at 5:38 pm This picture is… adorable! I love how the tough derby look contrasts with your immaculate hair and sweet pink toned makeup. You’re such the girly-girl with an edge. Pink meets brown.
