Spring biking in style

Monday, May 2, 2011

I've been riding my bike a lot lately and I'm the first one to admit that I admire girls who can manage wearing heels while cycling. It's a challenege to say the least so I've been trying to get some inspiration for comfy yet stylish riding outfits to add to the mix. I love the easy going jeans and ballerina flats combination with the ever stylish blazer and a hint of coral lipstick! Perfect look for a lunch date or a work meeting. Dears, what do you ride your bike in? Dress, jeans and a tee or maybe an amazing pair of heels? xo

P.S: Also, I wrote about four of my favourite weddings here, so have a look!

i love those pumps, so chic (just like any bike riding lady!). I have heard that the first step to cycling in heels is to cycle in wedges!

Whatever I have on at the moment :)
Can't wait to get up north and buy me a new bike!

Emma at Daily Clothes Fix said...

She looks so chic. I don't ride a lot but when I do practicality seems to overtake style.

What a great outfit for bike riding. I love the sporty feel.

Kristina said...

I mostly wear flats when riding a bike, no fancy high heels. :)
Hope you had a great weekend, xox

B. that is such a good tip! I might give it a try:)

Diana Mieczan said...

Hahha..Esther:) Your comment made me laugh out loud!!!

Diana said...

I love how outfit and the flats...great look for riding bike. We did a lot of walking this weekend instead of biking, it was really nice. But I usually wear my sneakers and jeans with my bike. Sometimes I would like to wear flip-flops but Im afraid of losing them! I hope you had a lovely weekend.

Yay for weddings...its a wonderful post! <3 So happy to have you guest blog!

sherri lynn said...

I love those Ballerina Flats!

Love those flats! My hubby and I have been thinking about getting some bikes recently. I just saw a Kate Spade one online recently.... May not be practical, but it's definitely gorgeous!!

Brenna said...

I love the blazer!!

Jenni Austria Germany said...

adorable! totally makes me want to jump on my bike and go. or first, buy a bike and go.

Ania Alonso said...

I love this look!

Alleen said...

I pretty much wear whatever I have on at the moment. With the kids it's hard to tell when I'll be out and about so anything goes. I do, however, prefer flats for sure. Happy Monday! xoxo

Aww..thank you, Chelsea!!!

Diana Mieczan said...

Jess, I'm totally smitten with that Kate Spade bike. It's so cool!

Christianna said...

I wish I lived somewhere where riding a bike made more sense. But I tend to wear whatever I have on when I do ride. No heels though...

Shannon said...

Ahhh...I long to be one of those girls who zip around DC on their bikes with suits on. However, I always pedal too hard, go too fast, or fly through a mud puddle. I can't quite kick the athlete in me for the fashionista I want to be!

Stephanie said...

I love silver ballet flats! I haven't ridden my bike in ages though. It's been sitting on my side porch for the past year and a half, just waiting to get new tires. One of these days... :-)

Ana Degenaar said...

Deeply in love with the blazer and bike.

La Feem said...

Fab outfit darling. I'm too practical for biking in pumps but I'll take those flats in a heartbeat. xo

Dancing Branflake said...

Is she wearing socks with her flats? I really need to do this!

Diana Mieczan said...

Tiffany, it seems that she is wearing some cute light socks:) Isn't that cool?

Krystal said...

oh that is so my style! i love it!

Mrs. Parker said...

love that jacket! i'm not a huge blazer wearer - but i'm thinking i should start incorporating them more! so cute!

Anna Walker said...

I love the look on the bike! That's the style I WANT to have. I am more california casual. Like, I would wear a sweater instead of that blazer, and pop the look with leopard print flats [like I'm wearing now]. I can't even tell if she's wearing socks or not?! Is she!?
