Bike about town...


Spotted this beauty while out with The Boy shopping on Maltby Street this morning. No idea if it belonged to one of the traders or a customer, but it would have been good to see the owner of this Pashley Tube Rider... along with their outfit! Whoever you are, you have great taste in bikes :)

Wardrobe Planning...

Even though we're not out of Winter, I'm preparing for the change of season on Frankie. I'm getting bored of the darkness - you could say that I'm desperately craving sunshine and Spring. This craving is resulting in new additions to the wardrobe and plans to remix the old with the new for more Cycle Chic :) The latest additions will arrive next week:

First to come should be this Markus Lupfer T-shirt from The Outnet. I love the look of this: simplistic chic, and I reckon it will be comfortable to ride in too. Feeling very inspired to re-create the outfit it features in on its Outnet page, but I think the Lanvin Shoes are a little out of my reach at the moment...

Next up, an unusual Ring that will rest on the Handlebars, by Mawi:



It comes from the latest collaboration Mawi have done with ASOS, meaning that it's not too hard on the pockets... hopefully will use said change for some accessories for the Pashley. No reason why the bike can't get accessorised too, right?

Music & Bikes

So this track has been out for a while but this is another music video with Bikes that really makes me smile... and is also mentally gearing me up for Summer in the city on Frankie. Roll on the hazy days, balmy evenings & free flowing clothing... I can't wait!

Back on track!

 I'm back on my bike!

Boy does it feel good to be back on the Saddle - it has been way too long. The tail-end of last year was a bit messy for me... I had a major bout of illness that wiped me out! There were hospital stays, copious amounts of steroids and antibiotics to take and lots bed rest which equated to a very bored and unhealthy feeling girl. Unfortunately cycling was one of the last things that I could have done, so my Pashley remained inside the house for the longest stint ever. Now that most of that is behind me, I intend on getting back into both my cycling routine and back to my take on keeping it Chic on two wheels :)

Went out for an afternoon ride with The Boy, which is another element of my cycling that I've missed so much. The weather wasn't the greatest today, so we kept it local just in case we got caught out badly by the black clouds above that would not go away! I just felt alive again being back in the open on my bike, with no restrictions. It was so good feel that way again - was worried that I'd actually forget how to ride... haha!

Anyway - I managed to throw together a bit of Cycle-Chic for the day, which went like this:


Cat-Eye Glasses: Christian Dior
Jacket: GAP
3-D Glasses Brooch: Tatty Devine
Fingerless Gloves: N.Peal Cashmere
Ring: MADE Jewellery
Tartan Shirt, Jeans and Shoes: Topshop
Bag: Vintage Gucci

Apologies to those who have been checking in on my blog and finding a total lack of updates... and to the blogs that I need to check in on again, I'll be having a look! 

It feels good to be back :)
