F21 dress, Gap shoes, Marc by Marc Jacobs bird hair pins, BP sweater, Electra Amsterdam BikeEverything felt sweet today, my dress, the bike, an Easter basket I made for my mom, and a Tiramisu! I hope everyone had as lovely an Easter as I did.

My mom lent me her brand new Electra Amsterdam, though I'm not really feeling up to riding very far. I did get a few turns around the backyard at least. This bike is incredible. A classically built Dutch steel frame with a big cushy seat and decorated with the work of Alexander Girard. Its got a modern folksy vibe with winding vines of flowers and fairy-like girls printed on it. I'm completely in love with my little blue three-speed for everyday errands and getting to work, but this is a bike for getting ice cream, riding along the beach, and enjoying the sunshine. In other words, activities where the risk of it being stolen is low!
