Polka on a Bicycle

Beanie: thrifted (is that gross?)
Cardigan: Target
Glasses: Calvin Klein
Necklace: American Eagle
Dress: Gap
Tights: Courtesy of We Love Colors
Sandals: Dolce Vita 'Pela'
Bike: Electra, gift from Gap
Meet Petunia! She's a one-speed Electra with argyle fenders and an orange/pink/red leather seat. I love her. A couple years ago, Gap had her in the back room as a part of an advertising campaign that we never did. (Oh, Gap.) She was so sad just sitting there all alone with her handlebars on backwards-- I had to have her. My wonderful boss must have known this, because she just gave Petunia to me after the holidays! Darin fixed the handlebars and Petunia and I have been pals ever since. I ride her to work (almost) every morning, helmetless, so I need to purchase a red helmet pretty soon. My mom is probably reading this and having a conniption.

Did you notice that I didn't retire the Dolce Vitas like I said was going to? I just had to get one more wear out of them. Oh, and I had to share my song of the day. I've been listening to this song on repeat for a good while now. So good. Press play, you won't regret it. I think the Oregon rain may be getting to me.

Have a beautiful day!


  1. This is your conniption fitter. Be careful of the intersection by the fountain, for me.
    Right now Julie Andrews and Maria Von Trapp are singing Adelweiss. Heaven...I taped it.
