Hope everyone is having a great week and enjoying the short reprieve from the rain! I cannot get enough of this amazing weather and I must confess….Mr. Wonderful has convinced me to start…..cycling! I know I haven’t processed this yet either….I have to say upfront the outfit is not very cute no matter how much pink I throw at it (and I am throwing a lot of accessories at it!) But I do love to be outdoors and the current weather is a great motivator. I am still getting use to the ummmm…seat, but other than that I have not enjoyed being in the outdoors this much in a long time.
Does anyone remember when they learned how to ride a bike? It is my single most prominent memory of my childhood. My father taught how me to ride, and I can still remember his very large frame on my tiny red BMX pedaling away to show me the motion. When my turn came, he swore he wouldn’t let go, and of course as soon as I started pedaling quickly he did. I turned around and when I saw that he had let go, I promptly turned the wheel and ran into a wall. Like a good student I dusted myself off and got back on the bike, and since that moment for me cycling represented my very first freedom – the ability to get somewhere without my parents (and for a relatively sheltered child it was amazing!) I still get that same sense of freedom even today – I will keep you posted on my cycling adventures.
Meanwhile, I wore this yesterday to a few meetings. I adore this asymmetrical skirt (also styled here) and I wanted to keep it chic but easy with flats. These shoes are one of my favorite flats (I rarely wear flats, but I like the slight stacked bottom on this pair) and they go with just about everything I own. The floppy hat trend continues through this fall and it is great for bad hair days (yup I was lazy this day).
