Satchel, Diaz Bags
I declared my personal bike-to-work season over upon arriving home yesterday from my final ride. The sun is now rising a full half hour AFTER I need to leave my home, and since we live in a fairly sketchy part of town,* I’m not too keen on riding in the dark.
Another reason to pause until spring? Tall boots just don’t fit into my bike bag. And tall boot time is upon us.
You might notice I’ve got a bag in these photos. I generally don’t include coats or bags in my outfit shots because … well, I don’t spend my days wearing my coats or carrying my bags. But I couldn’t resist throwing this one in. I fell head-over-heels for satchel-style bags last spring, found Diaz Bags on Etsy, saved my pennies, and voila: Satchel love consummated. The bag totally enhances this ensemble, don’t you think? I considered carrying it with me when I went to the break room for coffee, visited Cal at her cube, and scampered off to my meetings … but I refrained.
