Thanks to a few unseasonably warm days, the cherry trees and magnolias have started to show off their blooms. But we're still at the tail end of Winter and the temperature could take a dive at any moment. In other words, it's perfect biking weather.
Out and about you see bright blossoms on branches silhouetted against a dark stormy sky. Inspired by the seasonal confusion, our outfit pairs matte black with floral prints on a dark background. Go ahead and dress up in a velvet A-line skirt and a leather jacket without worrying about getting sweaty. That wintry chill in the air keeps you comfortable while pedaling.
Of course, adding more style to your cycle can seem daunting, especially if you're considering biking to work come Spring. For the stylishly bike-curious, I recommend riding your bike to run a few small errands. The Mme Velo Floral Pannier is a beautiful way to carry your goods. Dual purpose, it attaches to the rear rack of your bike and can be worn as a satchel thanks to the included shoulder strap.
Once you've put together the perfect ensemble for your afternoon out, you may find that the ordinary sporty bike helmet ruins the genteel effect. Enter the Yakkay helmet and cover. The basic black cap-style is versatile, comfortable, and stylish enough to go with a silk blouse and high-heeled Mary-Janes.
It's a great day for a bike ride!
