C’mon Let Me Ride Your Bicycle

I know that song is inappropriate but whenever I think of bicycles, I think of that song.  It’s catchy and poppy and it has Eminem in it!  Now to the actual post, what do you wear on bike?  Actually, better yet, what do you wear around a bicycle?  When thinking of ideas for the most recent IFB project, I came up with three outfits from the inspiration photos listed below.

I was just looking through my posts and found that I haven’t done a fashion post in about 3 months!  My immediate thought was this has got to change.  I was looking through fashion blogs(because that’s what I do in my free time, don’t judge) and found this awesome blog called stylecaffeinated and fell in love with her “4 looks I’m lusting” series and wanted to do something similar.  So without further ado, here are the 4 looks I’m lusting and my shopping picks(click on the shopping picks picture for all the products).

In this collection, Azzaro combines bold color, black and lace to makeyour formal looks more noticeable.  Many of the looks also included thigh high boots which I absolutely love and plan on buying for next fall.  Another feature was the gold accents of many of the dresses which I also plan on adding to my wardrobe.  And the last thing I really noticed was the statement neck pieces which were all beautiful.  I loved every look in this collection so it all here but I got the pictures from here.

Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2013 RTW Review

In this collection, Dolce & Gabbana use mosaics from the Catholic Church on many of the pieces.  They also managed to use it in a way that can be work/school appropriate.  I also love the gold accents on almost every look.  I especially love the gold tiaras, huge statement earrings and gold shoes.  The best part is they managed to throw in red, gray, black and white and still make the outfits bold, which I’m gonna try to do this coming fall.  Look at the entire collection here.  Here are my favorite looks:
