Perfectly tailored for her bike! I love her palette of camel and soft browns and how her lipstick picks up her bike color. Plus, who doesn’t love a little masculine / feminine contrast with the lines of the satchel offsetting the airy chiffon blouse. So good.

Spring is upon us, and so are some very chic shoes. Better weather means more style options for bike shoes. High heels? Yes please! One secret is this: the same heels that would kill on a half-hour walk don’t bother me at all on a half-hour ride.
1. Right now I’m eyeing Report’s Brynna ankle boot ($130), which offers a breezier version of my favorite winter look. 2. If you’re looking for a lower heel, Aritzia’s canvas espadrilles ($48) nail that rollin’ down the boardwalk vibe. 3. Juju Miller’s transparent rainboots ($79) are whatever-the-weather charmers that do something a little different. 4. Some of the colorways of D’orsay flats in Jenni Kayne’s spring collection ($495) are irresistible (Pro tip, score your leather sole to add a bit of traction).
What is your go-to shoe for spring biking?
Loving the latest Shinola campaign shot by Bruce Weber, especially this shot of influential Detroit women on two wheels.
“People there have a good sense of humor,” Weber continues. “They were like, ‘What are you doing with all those pictures?’ and ‘Hey, you should be photographing all the cars here, not me.’ ” Not one to miss anything, Weber did get a few made-in-America automobiles on film (as well as Shinola’s bicycles, produced in the former research lab for General Motors).

I love a jumpsuit, especially a denim workwear inspired piece like these. Leave it to The Sartorialist to find a beautiful lady biking in one.
We are totally smitten with this leather bike saddle bag from London’s Alfie Douglas. $230, available in black and tan.
This robust utility case is hand-stitched in beautiful quality vegetable tanned Belgian shoulder leather. The distinctive style of this case is created by using a single piece of leather to give a continuous structured form.
