Easter Sunday

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!
F21 dress, Gap shoes, Marc by Marc Jacobs bird hair pins, BP sweater, Electra Amsterdam Bike
Everything 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.

  10. thanks so much for the sweet and long comment! I love comments like that hehe. I'm following you too! on bloglovin :)

    yeah I know, girls so do dress for other girls! I do take it into account when thinking about what I'm going to wear when I go out with my boyfriend though - I wear clothes that are more appealing to him than other girls, even though he's pretty easy with my style. a lot to think about huh! haha.

    and yes how cute is the deer jumper?! youre reassuring me aboutbuying it now, i was a bit ehh at first but now I'm thrilled :)
