I got the news I was hoping for this morning: I have a bay in the secure Bike Shed at my workplace! Put in an application for one last week etc and its all been sorted… I’ll be given the key tomorrow morning, so I can finally start riding Frankie into work. Coming into the office on Saturday (which isn’t an ideal weekend, but work needs doing & I certainly won’t say no to the overtime…) and the DLR is down – how else to get in but in style on a Pashley, right? The path to work should be pretty quiet too as I’m planning on leaving home early. […]
After nearly a week of not riding I was back on Frankie* today. There was the plan of heading out for rides in the week but due to working late (boo) and meeting up with friends (yay!), it didn’t quite happen. It was great to get back on the Saddle today & continue finding my cycle legs. As it was just a casual ride to work out a cycle route, it called for casual cycle-chic – or my take on it at least… Hat: Missoni Track Top: Emilo Pucci for Adidas Scoop Neck Top: Topshop Jeans: Topshop Trainers: Adidas Bagwise – practical and the right size to fit in Frankie’s […]
I’m amazed at how a bicycle can have an influence on a persons wardrobe and style… Since making the decision that a Pashley Princess was the bike for me, a wardrobe revolution was put in motion & is gathering pace! Some of this style inspiration has come to me in many guises, including: the visual romance of the bicycle itself: a traditional loop-frame like this conjures up images of classic style & grace. Add to this the quintessential Britishness of a Princess, and you get the idea of the style direction it may point you towards international cycle-fashionistas, thanks to the excellent blogs/sites that I’ve come across. From those listed […]
I am now the proud owner of a Pashley Princess Classic! The day started off on a good note: no rain & bright sunshine – which is exactly what I’d hoped for… not to say that I’m going to be a fairweather rider, but I really didn’t want my 1st experience of riding through the city to be in the wind and rain. As the weather was nice but stil pretty cold, I went for the cycle-outfit that I thought would be practical for the weather, but still stylish (it was really too chilly for one of my new tea dresses): Coat: Warehouse Jeans: Topshop Vintage Saddle Bag: Absolute Vintage […]
