What I choose to wear day to day is determined by weather I am on my bike or not. When I am on my bike the go to garment has definitely got to be leggings, they are easy to wear, stylish, comfortable and you can still wear your favorite dress or skirt without worrying about giving a free peep show. Having style while I'm on two wheels is pretty important to me and what can I say, I guess I'm a little vain.
That said, I have tons of pairs of the same old plain black leggings and this sent me on a quest to find something a little bit different to break up the monotony of my bike outfits. I scoured Etsy to bring you all my favorite legging finds.
Alright, so I know these aren't technically leggings but what they are is technically awesome! I love the illusion of having a tattoo on your legs. I'm sure that these get tons of attention when worn. Amazing!
So, I'm moving into a new place in a few weeks! I am beyond excited, it's a super industrial and super modern style; exactly everything that I am in love with when it comes to modern loft architecture. I have always wanted an Eames lounge chair and I think now is the perfect time to figure out how I will incorporate this into a living type space.
What I am going for as far as the style of this new place is somewhat of a modern eclectic style. I love mid-century modern and also love ultra modern so I'm thinking I want to do a combination of the two with a few eclectic elements i.e. a tiny touch of Victorian.
Went off on a tangent there but after doing much searching on the internet, here are my most favorite integrations of the Eames lounge chair in a living space.
I really loved fell in love with this collection when I first saw it; it's good mix of school girl uniform + some inspiration from the 60's. I adore the knee highs and I think that the layering was well done. Love, Love, Love it!
This post is all about DIY love style! It may sound cliche but thoughtfulness is a key ingredient for a remembered and cherished gift. What does your beloved love? Try to include these things when making a gift, it adds a personal touch that no greeting card company can match. Keep these things in mind when making your gift or planning your date to create an unforgettable Valentines experience! So here they are- 4 DIY Valentine's Day Ideas:
Yes, I know just hearing that brings back memories of red construction paper and glitter but not all valentine's day cards have to be the same. A card can be a one of a kind collage of different pictures and images that your true love adores.
Another cliche, but hey, it is a timeless romantic idea. If you aren't a poet at heat you can always share someone else's poetry (given due credit to the author). A great place to find a bunch of great poetry is at Poem Hunter there are literally hundreds of poems to choose from all you really have to do is choose a keyword (i.e. love) and a surplus of savvy poetry will be right at your finger tips.
There is something about cooking that is extravagantly charming, a great cooked treat or meal is always welcome! This is a great time to choose a menu in advance. Find out what meal makes your valentine's heart tick and make it together! Here is a great menu that is already put together, if that doesn't tickle your fancy there are amazing resources for cooking out there in the abyss of the internet, find one and go for it!
Indoors or Outdoors. If the weather permits have a picnic outside, a place where you can see the sunset is always incredibly romantic, get a great little wicker basket a bottle of champagne and go from there! If it's rainy outside or too cold for you and your honey a really cute idea is to stage an indoor picnic. Get a blanket and set the scene indoors, set up on the floor. Super cute and unforgettable!
Fashion week is just a mere week away! I am so ready for some new fashions to come out, I feel like the last few season have just been so painfully similar and I can't wait to see some new and creative designs. It is always a crazy concept that fashion lives in the future but at the same time, that's what makes it exciting, right?
I love it when fashion takes it's cues from the past! Here are some of my favorite Pre Fall looks by Stella Mc Cartney that have a vintage feel with a modern twist.

A messenger bag is also a cool and practical gift for any cyclist and even non cyclist for that matter. I love the different patterns and designs from this awesome Etsy seller Marty May.
Some of these bags have a really cool print of a Rad Rider (remember that movie? ; ) on a bicycle. Super cool, super functional an all around great gift!
