Ahoy! Is that Chanel you're wearing?!

We are having such divine weather here at the moment that I'm trying to ride my bike about as much as possible.

I thought it was important to present photos not of the heels I wear but the ballet flats I ride around in because lets face it, riding in heels is a/near impossible and b/just plain stupid.
Also on riding, a friend of mine who is also a lady rider was shocked to find out that I don't have a name for my bike. Do you have a name for your bike? I felt left out of some secret club when I found out.

I found these Country Road woolen pants when I was out on a shoot two weeks ago at the Salvo's in Erol St Nth Melbourne. They have the old school Country Road tag on so you know they're goodun's from the 80s. I've worn them cuffed but mid winter they should be long and lean and I can't wait to wear them!

Vintage silk blouse: I don't remember the name of the shop.
Hounds tooth pants: Original Country Road
Earrings: Op-shop
Ballet flats: Jadd
Heels: Urban Original
Leather bag: By brother bought it for me in Florence.

Hi Phoebe,
Your use of light is spectacular. Also spied you at the LMFF Bazaar show, looking tres chic in your vintage jacket and pencil black skirt. Loved the shoes too, are they Peep Toe?

Of course my bike does have a name. Actually it`s a motobike and `she` is called Valentina (paying a homage to great Valentino... not the fashion designer but the motorcycle racer Valentino Rossi). Well, I am in Italy where we all ride motorbikes or vespas but I do not think people give them a name.
Great post, Lady M!

I wouldn't dare dream of giving you style advice but if I wore this, I'd wear it with a thin black belt.

I so wish I'd keep a lot of my gear from the 80s. I swear I had those pants. You look gorgeous as per usual.

Love your outfit! But I 100% disagree with you abut riding in heels: I do it all the time! :D And am safety conscious Sunday school-biddy rider in style, too!

Yes, you must name your bike! My bike is royal blue and her name is Duffy. Go figure.

Those trousers are fantastic, the shape is great on you and they look perfect with the little ballet flats.

My bike most certainly has a name...Ye olde Sprinter! She's seasoned but fast; she's electric blue and I love her!
