How's your bank holiday been? Mines been pretty dismal if I'm honest, caught the dreaded flu so I've locked away for most of the time off!
Whilst stuck indoors I've been dreaming of the summer and with that comes thoughts of things to do and of course things to buy!
My first purchase of the summer is going to be a new bike.I found out recently that through my work I can get one, most workplaces do the Cyclescheme plans. It basically means they sub you some vouchers and then you pay it back monthly out of your wage.. pretty good huh?
Of course being a fashion conscious person I'm not going to settle for any ol ugly bike am I?!
This is the beaut I've chosen-
|Bobbin Metropole £299|
Isn't she lovely?! Okay it may be a little plain looking in this picture... but imagine a lovely (and practical!) basket on the front with some flowers in.
Bobbin do a large amount of colours for this bike but I thought I'd keep it simple, easier to match with out outfit eh?
I've also found THE most lovely helmet.. yes helmet... its must! The one I've chosen is by a designer called Sawako Furuno. Originally from Tokyo she is said to be keen on designing products that stand out and move away from the typically unattractive cycling accessories.
|Sawako Furuno Helmet £68|
So all I'm waiting for now is it all to arrive!
So.. all that leaves me to do is dream about the outfits I could wear whilst cruising round on my ultra vintage looking bike.
I love the french feel of this La Redoute collection-
|The Breton Stripe collection @ La Redoute|
I can just imagine arriving for work in this outfit-
I'd then team all this up with a pop of colour and comfort-
|Coral ballet pumps £29.50|
ahh...you can never beat a bit of Parisian chic can you!
