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.
