We are normal people.
Where did people start getting the idea that bike fashion blogs are dictating what people are supposed to wear on a bicycle?
Au contraire! We here at Vélo Vogue say "Vive La Difference!"
We celebrate the diversity, ingenuity and unique style of each man and woman who chooses to ride a bicycle. This movement began as a revolt of sorts to the "uniform" of the lycra-clad or skinny-jeans + hoodie bicycle crowds (and sometimes we choose to wear those uniforms too - they can be perfect for the right occasion). You really can wear whatever you like on a bike. These images should inspire you that your bike style choices are limitless and are not dictated by haute couture or anyone for that matter.
Without further ado, here is the latest installment of Bike Wardrobe Remix.

Cycling at 38 weeks pregnant
The only bike ride I went on this week; an easy 3.2 mile ride to a cafe and home. It didn't feel like too much work but I also didn't feel like pushing much past that distance. Overall, I think I'm ready to be done being a pregnant cyclist. :)
July is too Hot Floral Mash-Up
I guess every day I wear a floral print and ride the bike with the floral Basil panniers on will be a floral mash-up. Keds match panniers beautifully!

shirt - Bon Prix
belt - don't remember
pants - H&M

It's inspired by a typical mizket look again, but then I reeaally like the belt-over-shirt thing. Gives the outfit a medieval touch.
P.S. This is KT officially calling Ramona Wheelright back to Vélo Vogue!
