The Gap (no, not that one)

When I saw this spread in the January InStyle Magazine, I thought with a sigh "that's how I should dress to ride my bike in the city...."

This one, from body+soul magazine, instilled a flash of recognition. That is how I dress to ride my bike. I hope I'm still young enough to pull it off!

Oh well, I guess it could be worse. (don't click that link)

You can pull it off, don't worry. Riding the bike is where your credibility comes into it, not your age.

I'm with jhaygood on that link--you gotta warn people!

HAHA! I love the surprise link. Yikes. There's been hearsay in the land of Tar-jey Boutique(Target...) that they're working on a stylish and affordable bicycle commuter line. Not sure what truth there is in that though...

yes, you will always be young enough to pull this outfit off! please! :)

you know, the only problem I usually have with riding in (what I consider) fashionable street clothes is that my boots get cage-marked (kind of scratched & dimpled) and generally torn-up over time.

...not sure how to solve that problem because I LOVE keeping these toes warm on cold winter days!
