Next time you hop on your bike for a ride try an ensemble like this that is both comfortable and stylish. The jeans are a relaxed skinny fit with a slightly higher waist, which I find ideal for biking. The top is loose and airy, but the pattern and fit make it more interesting than your basic tee. Ankle boots are a great option for a variety of activities, I own a few pairs! My favourite pair of ankle boots are my Original Blundstone's in Rustic Brown! They are durable (resilient), comfortable, weather proof and rustic chic. You cannot go wrong with a pair of Blundstone's. Add some accessories to your outfit that are bike friendly and you are ready to ride in style.
I love running to the grocery store after work, especially if I am using my MyBasket shopping basket that day. The basket comes off and on like a charm and the handles make it super easy for taking into the grocery store with you! I would totally recommend this basket. It does not fit on all models of bicycles, it did not fit on my husbands mountain bike, but it should fit well on all city bikes. If you are looking for one in Canada Urkai (based in Burlington, ON) sells them in store and online. Shipping is reasonable and the owners are extremely helpful, friendly and all around awesome people!
I am a city commuter who does not bow down to hideous performance spandex. I like to be comfortable, but fashionable. Of course flexibility is a necessary consideration when picking the right biking outfit (and leggings with a cute dress is a go to for me), but the right pair of jeans can be just as ideal. I bike for transportation and fun, to get from point A to point B, but not necessarily as fast as I humanly can. I take my time, I like to enjoy my surroundings and appreciate not being dripping with sweat when I arrive at my destination, which is often the workplace (where I need to look relatively professional). I have not been commuting by bicycle for very long and one day it struck me that my style has been somewhat altered by my daily commute, not in a bad way, but I seem to dress more simply and bicycle consciously.
Biking has changed my style…
Fashion Friday will be a weekly post on Me and My Azor. I will either share some of my biking outfits from the week, compile outfits with items I find online or discuss something biking fashion related. I want to show people that you do not have to sacrifice your fashionable self in order to bike!
Stay tuned for next week’s Fashion Friday!
