Bike Fashion Outfit Ideas For Fall

It's been ages since I've posted any personal style. One of the reasons is that here in San Francisco, our seasons don't really match up with the rest of the Northern Hemisphere. Our Summer was chilly (and often foggy). And then right after the Equinox, the temperature soared and everyone lost their minds a little bit and hit the beach. But it didn't seem right to post a picture of me in a sundress while the rest of the country was wrapping their brain around the concept of "sweater weather." So I've been sitting on this outfit since early June. The grey wool jacket and tights combo just make more sense for Fall inspiration, don't you think?

This is a pretty typical outfit configuration for me: novelty print top, A-line skirt, snazzy jacket, and a pair of tights. Here in SF it's actually a year-round look. We're just regularly temperatured like that, okay?

And I've usually got my trusty leather satchel with me as a run bike errands around town. My helmet is from Giro. Tights are from American Apparel.

I can't help it! Pattern-mixing makes me smile. So does matching my shoes to my bag (just my inner Southern girl coming out).
