bike chick tip

hello ladies oh and gents too! today is bike chick wednesday and  bike chick outfit post at that!

so as most of you know i ride my bike everyday to bart. most of the time i throw on a pair of jeans and a sweater and pack my work clothes in my commuter bag and change at work but other times i wear my work outfit for my commute...this is one of those rare and special moments ;D

the dress is from forever 21..adorning yet another magenta & teal paisley pattern...now that i think about it i actually have a lot of paisley prints in my closet, who would have thought! a purple sweater which i think you can't see...and this super awesome black velvet blazer i found at the thrift store for like $3!!! i usually stay away from blazers as i feel when wearing them that i should be in harvard square drinking a latte and studying for an exam (not that there is anything wrong with going to harvard, drinking a latte and studying for exam just not my style if you know what i mean) this one has a great fit and i adore the collar! lastly and definitely my favorite are my polka dotted tights! now as a bike rider many of my clothes get ruined from time to time and these little tights are no exception! i knew that would be the case so i think i went a little crazy and bought 5 pairs!! well at $5 you really can't go wrong!

tights are another bike friendly dress/skirt wearing must! perfect for those short dresses and when my black volleyball shorts are dirty...perfect for riding during the fall, winter and spring seasons! thank goodness for tights!



happy hump day ;O

  2. you look adorbs! LOVE those tights. I agree - tights are a girl biker's BFF. Can't wait til it gets a little cooler in TX so I can run around in short dresses and opaque tights.

  17. Yeah that's one thing I've always wondered about with riding a biks...how do you wear your normal clothes and skirts when you ride? But of course: Tights!
    I love them fellas. I have more tights than I have trousers. And I'm totally fine with that. =]
    Also, did I reply to your typewritten letter? I was going through my letters and I suddenly panicked and tohught I hadn't ever replied to it! x
