Zooming Around In Style

Today when I got home my mom surprised me with fresh homemade pizza on the grill. While I was grilling up some eggplant in olive oil to go with it Rich stopped by with another surprise for me. He's had my blue Ross 3-speed to fix the shifter, and while he had it he added a metal basket! I've been dying for one on this bike so when I take it to the train in the morning I have a place to put all my stuff. He was kind enough to oblige and take my pictures for me while I zoomed around.
My chambray and denim shirts have entirely replaced most of my cardigans for layering. Despite the perfect late summer weather, the office and train still hover around zero degrees. As a former jeans & tee shirt kind of girl, I've always thought blue denim-ish material worked perfectly with just about anything you could pair it with. This summer has been effortless, throwing this top in my purse where it barely takes up space and pulling it out, perfectly rumpled to ward off the air-conditioned chill.

  7. There's something so quaint about a bike with a basket...I'm about to move to a more bike-friendly city so really excited about zooming around on two wheels again. Your dress is gorgeous too and I love it paired with the denim shirt...it has an edge on cardigans!
