One of my favourite parts of our recent trip to Venice Beach, California was riding along the beach with a retro bicycle (with a basket, I might add). I have been wanting to do this for a really long time, most likely because a very long time ago I watched the movie A Good Year (set in the south of France) and I wanted to ride a bike like Marion Cotillard and look all effortlessly French. This is the closest I have gotten to that. For this bicycle ride though, I thought it would be fun to forgo the French minimalism and opt for a fun retro outfit to match the personality of my ride. I paired my favourite cropped bustier with some new high-waisted shorts to create a look that showed some skin, while still offering some coverage. Like I explained a little while back, when I wear a cropped top, I like to balance it out with high-waisted bottoms; it's my way of being comfortable wearing the skin-clad top.
Happy Styling! xo
