Outfit: Cycle Chic



I honestly did not put together this outfit thinking "I'll dress like the human version of my bicycle" but that's pretty much how it came out! We found my bicycle at an auction that was full of random things (like tractors and sewing machines and old mirrors) and this was the only bicycle up. The fact that I like green and this style was pure chance, we didn't really go about picking the perfect bicycle up, we just snatched this when we had a chance...and then struggled for twenty minutes to try to find space in the car to bring it home. So it's sort of funny how perfectly it's blended into my style and my life. It just goes to show that some of the best things in life aren't what you plan, but opportunities you take when they come to you. Sometimes it takes a bit of luck or talent to recognize an opportunity.

lovely pictures! That bike suits you so well. I can imagine it in an alternate universe writing a blog post from its own point of view..."I wasn't looking for any particular owner, but she seems to fit my style perfectly..." ;)

How are you cycling around with bare legs! I know that scarf looks good but I embraced tights a while ago and I'm in southern England! Gorgeous look though, I love the blends of orange and green.

@Emily, I am wearing tights/stockings, I even linked to them at the end of the post. The pattern in them is just on the back of the tights so they look nude from the front.
