I suppose pearls could be considered a bit much for a bike ride . . . . but these are faux pearls that belonged to my late Grandmother Geer. Faux pearls are probably fine on a bike. I love them and wear them all the time. They are very heavy and just a little cold. My mother-in-law recently gave me this amethyst pendant, which she thought would look quite nice on a strand of (faux) pearls. You don't see pearls (real or faux) very often in Flagstaff but if wearing some makes you feel good and you have some and you have a bike, I see no reason why you (male or female) shouldn't enjoy them together. I might have initially sold my VW Beetle and started bike commuting in order to economize but there is no reason why I should spend a second of my time feeling deprived (especially when I'm not particularly deprived in the first place). Riding my bike while wearing my favorite, prettiest clothes, whether they come from the Talbots or Target, connects me with my inner-French girl. She doesn't really care what anyone thinks and won't let me feel sorry for myself for very long.
So do you have anything that you think you probably shouldn't wear on a bike but do anyway because of how it makes you feel?
