Cycling & Shopping

Relaxed Sunday Cycle-Chic:
 *Misfits T-shirt: Urban Outfitters
*Skinny Jeans: Topshop
*3D Glasses Necklace: Tatty Devine
*Indian Slipper Shoes: Stratford Market

Me and The Boy headed out on our bikes for the day - I took him (yes - I actually lead the way!) to Columbia Road to meet up with Tyla for lunch and shopping - which was a 1st as I've never carried more than my Handbag, Camera and Lock in Frankie's basket! Although I still need to sort out Panniers for the bike, getting stuff home in the basket was fine - especially when you encounter thoughtful shop owners. I bought a new top and a pair of Vivienne Westwood / Melissa Shoes from Marcos & Trump (which will make an appearance in my Cycle-Chic). The lovely lady who served me clocked my cycle helmet attached to my bag, and without asking, took the shoes out of the box and wrapped them in a shoe-bag for me and just said "for the journey, OK?" I liked this :)

Sunday mornings on Columbia Road are always a lively & pretty affair - and not just because of the flower stalls...
... you can easily get something nice to eat - like cakes in a hodge-podge Vintage Shop that has a crazy tea-room in the back...
... and be entertained by live music on the street!

Cycling on a Sunday is always a good thing :)
