    I love how bicycles and fashion go so well together; its a classy combination. However, I did just witness a few days ago a woman stumbling off her bike because she was wearing wedges…haha.

    Recently I have been feeling more of an urge to get a bike. I have 1 at my parents that I haven't ridden in years, think it may be time to dust it off, or get a nice vintage one.

    This is such a timely post for me, I've been waiting (impatiently) for nearly three weeks for the new bike I ordered to arrive at the bike shop. I got the good news today! I can go pick it up on Wednesday. I'm so excited.

    While I've been waiting I've been spending all my free time looking at pictures of well-dressed people riding bikes, so with all that inspiration, I should find it a cinch to look good while riding my shiny new bike.

    I am loving all these fabulous bike/style shots. I have been hunting for the perfect vintage-esque bike.

    I absolutely love the outfit of the girl with the pink/orange skirt. So simple and so chic…I'd love to look like her while riding a bike instead of wet and with red chicks….
