Natural Born Biker

Sweater? Zara (final sales) Plaid shirt? Winners Jeans? Joe Fresh Boots? Joe Fresh (leather and now $39 in store!) Coat? Thrifted Necklace? Thrifted

This bike is like the porridge that Goldilocks ate from little Bear's bowl; just right. I mean, if we are going to get technical, the bike is actually too short and the seat has a wobble but in terms of borrowed bikes, it works wonderfully.
I miss Matt and all, but the best part of travelling to Holland alone is that everyone has a spare bike to lend me. In the half week that I have been here, I have borrowed 4 bikes. You just take what is lying around when you need to get somewhere... And out of all the bikes so far, this one gets my heart. Partially because it was easy to ride, and partially because this bike wasn't to blame when I caused some other bikes to fall like Dominos near the bike rack...
Did I mention the neighbour was watching while this happened?
I hope I made his night...

I actually prefer bikes that are "too short" for me. They are just so much easier to ride. And I looooove that gold sweater. It would look amazing with a floor-length black satin skirt for a winter formal event. Love it!

I forgot where you were for a minute...I was so dazzled by the sweater.

LOVE the coat! Thrifted gem :)

I JUST discovered Joe Fresh! I was walking by the store and something drew me in, I had never heard of it before and lo and behold, I walk out with a tee with bedazzled sleeves. Haha, those boots are awesome!


Best,

I was this close to buying this sweater on final sale! Glad to see it styled. I dig it layered with the button-down.

Hope you're enjoying Holland! I am jealous.

What Would a Nerd Wear said...

you look like a natural aboard that bike, and your sparkly top does double duty of being super rad and reflecting light like a safety vest (only way cooler, obviously). it's so much fun to hear about your trip, keep it coming!

Good to have you on this side of the planet! So disappointed though to NOT see you on a Gazelle...to elaborate on clichees: don't get caught by your cats cheating with that cutie of a pup.
Have a good day my favourite blogger, dui dui!
