What to Wear: Biking in December

I was particularly happy with my outfit yesterday. Rob and I rode our newly repaired bike to work and I had a chance to try out my new bright red blazer from last weekend.

Turtleneck - Oh, how I love a black turtleneck. When I become an eccentric old woman, I'll wear nothing but black turtlenecks.
Blazer - I'd been eying this blazer from J.Crew before it went on sale and found one almost exactly like it at H&M for $20.
Scarf - A bridge between the different colors in this outfit.
Jeans - A pair of straight leg Levi's I found for $40. They're skinny without being horrifying.
Boots - I have a vintage pair with a stacked heel that I love.
Sunglasses - Aviators.
Bag - Ha! I don't have a $1,600 purse. I have one that looks a lot like this borrowed from a friend.
Bike - Ours is red and much more handsome.

Rob said I looked like a model in this ensemble, which is about the best compliment.
