Pedal Power

Swerving cars, biting asphalt, and purple bruises should not be associated with riding a bike.  However, being the klutz that I am, I should have known better than to take a bike ride through downtown Chicago.  Even if I can’t ride a bike, I can still look like I know what I’m doing.  My inspiration for this post is the bike style of women of the 1950’s, especially since the 50’s silhouette seems to be coming back full force right now.

Key items include cardigans, high waisted shorts, bobby socks, and oxfords.  Pair with some floral sunglasses and a cute raffia Fendi bag, and you’ll be ready to pedal through anything.  Though, I might recommend wearing a helmet if you’re as clumsy as me.  (They do have some pretty cute helmets out there…like this one from Yakkay at the right)
