Vespa Style

When I first bought my Vespa, I realized that the "idea" of being a rider and the "reality" are way different. The idea is that you can wear pretty much anything on a scooter (skirt, dress, tank top) because, well, it's a scooter not a chopper. The reality is that if you and the road ever become one, a skirt is not what you'll want to be wearing when you take the fall.
 
I knew I still wanted to be able to look good on my Vespa. You can't put a fashion obsessed girl in a head-to-toe fully padded street bike outfit and expect her to feel feminine, even if it is the safest bet. (Also, a bright red scooter doesn't really mix well with motorcycle road gear-lol). I put my own still- very-safe spin on outfits when I'm cruising around, and here's what I wear when I'm riding my Vespa:
 



Outfit Details: Glasses: Warby Parker// Faux Leather Jacket: Levi's- similar // Top: Umgee*-find their clothing here at Blondellamy'Dean and here at Be Inspired boutique// Capris: Torrid on sale// Helmet: HJC// Wedges: Target
 
 
Have a beautiful weekend, lovelies :)

  5. I always had the hardest time dressing when I had my Vino. I would never ride without a helmet and an armored jacket. It was always a pain lugging that jacket around, and it was neon yellow to boot so it didn't go with anything. I love your riding look, if I get another scooter I think I will downsize to a nice jacket like yours and get a maybe splurge on a glitter helmet ;)
