Concrete Catwalk // Cycling Style

March 4, 2014


I’d like you to meet my new little baby blue bicicleta… I found her at a super-cool little bike shop up the hill, and you might say it was love at first cycle. ;)  She’s been my partner in crime every day for the past two weeks!

(Except for Saturday when it rained a bunch… Bici watched movies with us in our living room that day.)

One of my favorite things about Long Beach is how bike friendly the community is!  We don’t have our car here, so an alternative set of wheels has been crucial to getting around town.  Particularly perfect for a day of hitting up some of the best vintage shopping spots, which all happen to be just a few miles away.

Keep reading to see more fun pics of my new friend, and for all the handy shopping info that goes along with the look… Spoiler alert: That camo cutie is yet another sweater from the men’s section!

Ps. – I TOLD you this color would likely be cropping up a bunch over the next several weeks, and I wasn’t kidding.

PPs. – We didn’t really get a shot of the label in any of these photos, but the model of this vintage bike is called a “Free Spirit”, and if you happened to see this week’s Pepper Letter, you’ll know that this is crazy-perfect for me on so many levels!


Top to Bottom // Round retro sunnies*, Rachel Roy earrings, Rachel Pally tee, Old Navy Men’s camo sweater, Vintage cut-offs (similar), Brahmin All Day Tote*, Chuck Taylor’s low top tennies, Evil eye bracelet // * Notes a gifted item.

    Firstly, that weather!! Sigh! And your outfit + bike are absolutely the cutest things ever!! I can’t for the spring weather to arrive… my poor bike is locked away in our storage locker and I can’t wait to ride again. Happiest Thursday, girly!! xoxo
