Sarah has only been commuting by bike for 6 months, so hats off to her for persevering through the winter weather.

To keep herself cosy she’s dressed for work in a black swing jacket with checkerboard trim from Pussycat Black (an independent boutique in Brunswick), black leather driving gloves and a favourite winter cycling combo, knee-length leather boots, opaque tights and a stretchy wool skirt. Her Longchamp Le Pliage handbag has been tucked into her back basket.

To be honest, what really caught our eye was Sarah’s beautifully rosy cheeks as she went to park her bike. After a bit of a brisk cycle, who needs makeup?
