What I Wore: A Bike Ride

When I was studying in York, I went everywhere on my bike. This bike belonged to my mum when she was at university in the 80s. It’s rusty and it only has one working gear but it’s red and white and so pretty and I love it! Until recently it also had a wicker basket, but it has become tatty from carrying my books around for years. I really miss cycling every day so I decided to try cycling in the countryside around my house. It was fun, if a little hilly! This vintage dress is the perfect cycling dress because it’s loose and long and heavy enough to stay put!

This dress is such a great throw-on-and-go dress, and it’s lovely and comfy and warm – perfect for autumn! I tried to keep make my hair and make-up a little more seventies to match my dress – I exaggerated my usual small cat eye and wore my favourite daytime red lipstick with my hair down.

Hopefully I’ll get some more cycling in this Autumn. Maybe I’ll be brave enough to cycle the four miles into town next time I need to do some shopping! Do you ever cycle to places?

  1. In Austin, Zack and I are constantly riding our bikes everywhere. He actually rides to work sometimes, which is 18 miles one-way! That’s a bit much for me, so I keep it to the 10-13 miles in and around the downtown area when the weather’s nice. It’s so lovely to ride, it’s one of our favorite things to do.
