Last week, I took my beach cruiser on a little spin around Munich. Inspired by the beautiful pictures we’ve taken in the South of France, I was eager to scout similiar locations where I could shoot my fashion looks in the city. Where many might reach for a more sporty outfit (think biker shorts + sports bra), I decided to channel my inner LA girl to create this boho-style beach cruiser look.
The beach cruiser was a gift from my parents for my 25th birthday 5 years ago. Since I first laid eyes on these kinds of bikes in LA, I knew I wanted to have one to look as stylish cruising up and down the beachwalk (or better city streets). I originally opted for a pink bike (because I’m this girly girl). But then I saw this green Hawaiian-style one. Green is actually my favorite color even though it doesn’t seem this way. When it comes to fashion or interior design, I opt for more pastel tones like blush and teal. But I also love nothing more than the rich green of the forest.
This bike is seriously my dream! I always feel like a beach princess riding it. It is just so me! The only downturn is that it’s not really made for unpaved territory. But that’s ok with me. I mostly use to get around town anyways.
I love the mix of bohemian-style & Southern Chic
To match the spirit of this bike, I picked a rose-colored Bomhemian-style dress and my new favorite tassled denim jacket I bought in Nice. I first wanted to wear sandals but then I decided to wear my white Adidas sneakers with the rose gold metal toe just because it felt more comfortable. Thankfully, pairing sneakers with a more feminine dress has been streetworthy for a while now (not that I would ever care what’s in style, fashion for me is more about self-expression and what feels right to me in the moment).
Dressed like this, I hopped onto the bike and made my way around town. Luckily, my parents also thought to add a matching basket to the beach cruiser. Thus, my loved LV bag (I never go anywhere without it) was stored safely in the front along with my phone (very neccessary to capture all the good spots).
In the end, I didn’t find any spots I liked but nonetheless had a fab day. I realized how easy it is to get around Munich by bike and I it was a great workout, too (so great that I fell asleep totally satisfied that night). I will definitely take my bike more often now. Because seriously, sitting in public transportation wearing a mask for 30 minutes or more is not really what I call comfortable travel.
I bought the dress at a small boutique in Juan-les-Pins but you can find similiar ones below. The denim jacket is from Antica Sartoria and is currently 50% off! This is the label I also bought my yellow crop top from. It is seriously so comfy and looks as good with a dress as it does with a more sporty look (as you can see below).
Wishing you a fab Monday!
