Vélib' Chic

In Paris, plenty of the locals choose the bike share system, Vélib'. While many times these bike share systems are seen as "touristy" and not- chic, Parisians have a way of owning the urban look in these public bikes.

Sundays like this in Copenhagen are about priorities on the bicycle. It's not easy waking up after a long week to cold, autumn mornings in Scandinavia, but being able to ride your bicycle in style to all your Sunday necessities is an advantage.  The following are bits you can only witness in this amazing Nordic city.

This modern man prioritizes diapers and coffee, nice.

She prioritizes furniture journeys and friendliness.

Quick grocery stops

Happy cruising and music are important priorities too.

Addressing Urban Cycling the Right Way

This is how we should all address urban cycling any day: head up, heels on and eyes closed. Okay, maybe you shouldn't close your eyes... at least not for long. But keep it cool, keep it relax.  This woman is a beautiful example of casual grace being spread on an autumn afternoon commute.  Riding her bicycle along the city streets, she includes wander, balance and charm.

Parisian Women Owning the Streets

Cruising through Paris with Velolib' bicycle is a common thing, but this lady stands out with her casual yet stylish look. 

What can describe femininity more then heels, stand out accessories and confidence.

Beige and blue.... Keeping it simple and playing with tones... Can you spot the little heels? 

Freshen it up with a colourful piece. This is Parisian style. What else do you need?

And if you can... match your bike with your bag.
