OOTD - Bicycle Riding Season

Some people dust off their convertible come the warm weather, but I have another kind of summer wheels; meet Betty Blue, my beloved Dutch Step-Through bicycle.  Traditionally this bike was created so that one could wear a skirt with ease while cycling around town, and I like to still uphold this in modern times.  I couldn't have thought of a better outfit than my handmade Meemoza floral skirt and light blouse. There is something so special that you can actually feel when wearing hand-made clothing - each stitch, pleat and hem appears so much daintier when you know that an actual human is responsible for them. Sustainable fashion all the way! So if you see a girl in skirt bicycling though Toronto (with a helmet, of course) give her a wave, it's probably your favourite Petite Noob!

What do you guys think?  Do you have some summer wheels too? Would you wear a skirt while bike riding?  Let me know!

  3. Mu summer wheels do not have a brake, so wearing a skirt not ideal for me when biking. lol. Love this cute skirt on you though.
