Baby, Let’s Cruise

If there’s one way I like to get around on the weekend, it’s by bike. I would forego my car entirely but, well, this is LA. Thankfully Santa Monica is the perfect place to cruise around before brunch or beachside in the afternoon. My mom and I often ride around together with her little Maltese strapped into the front basket. Dublin still seems confused why he is unable to do the same…

I picked up my cruiser at Helen’s Cycles. If you’re in LA I can’t recommend them enough. They’re incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. When I told them I wanted a cruiser, it didn’t take long for them to understand my vision. I love this classic ivory with tan leather and wicker basket. And, of course, the perfect little bell.

Since I can get caught up riding around all day, I need outfits that are both comfortable and cute. These Citizens of Humanity white jeans are so flattering with just the right amount of stretch. For a pop of summer color I wore this easy breezy blue and white striped crew neck from Splendid and matching Soludos.

And now I’m cruising into Monday and reminded one more benefit to bikes over cars…hello LA traffic.
