Flagstaff Street Chic - Spring 2010


On my way to a Tweed ride organizing meeting after work today, I had the good fortune to happen upon these two street-chic young ladies unlocking their mountain town bikes just outside the historic Hotel Weatherford. I love funky, art school street fashion but have never been very good at carrying it off. This pair does it just right, though. I love the bell shaped coats and the spontaneous mix of color, pattern and texture. And though we might be a step away from May, both women are dressed for warmth as well as style. Given their carefree fashion sense, is their choice of transportation a surprise?

A few blocks over, I spotted this townie bike parked behind a local restaurant. I imagine the baskets are perfect for carting home pizza and a couple of six packs of New Belgium after work. I don't know if you can tell from this photo but the saddle was covered with snow. Yes, it snowed on April 29.

Cold mountains overlooking downtown.

I was grateful to be meeting Ray at Flagstaff Coffee Company (16 E. Route 66), where I sipped the best damn latte I've had in ages. Topped with a generous helping of cinnamon for piping hot perfection.

The Kona lady's cerulean hues a nice touch. Blue left, red right glove...hmm...also somehow works.

Gorgeous bikes & clothing! Sounds like a fun trip downtown. You did a great job with the street shots.

It snowed buckets here yesterday, with more predicted for the weekend. Ah, mountain weather! Photos to come on the blog!

Wow, their outfits certainly confirm how cold it is over where you are!

Yes, how can it be this cold in May but snow it did today. Oh, well, this time of year can see 80% humidity in Louisville so I should be grateful for an approaching summer when a high of 85 and 30% humidity is considered an extreme heat event!

It snowed up here,too..and still chilly,lol. I love the outfit on the girl to the left; the style of her coat is cute, plus the colours on her scarf and her black jacket look so great together. The striped mitts top it off!
