Must Have For Spring

Are you wondering what the latest accessory is for spring? Belt, shoe, bag? No...

It's a bike!

Everyone who is anyone has one.

These bikes are not just for exercise.


Please no work out clothing.

If you want to be on trend, and who doesn't...right, you need to dress the part.

Yes, this is just about perfect!


Just whatever you do, don't do boring.

Everyone appreciates a little creativity. No one appreciates boring...


So, get you a bike, get you a basket, a cute outfit and you're good to go for Spring!

It is about time to start back up on our bike rides to school and the grocery store. O.K. I have never ridden my bike to the store, but I could if I wanted to. Maybe. I am going to have to work on my wardrobe a little. What about you? Do you bike to school, work or the grocery store?

  1. I want a Liberty print bike from Target! Sadly, around here I can not bike! Either huffing and puffing up a loooong steep hill or careening and braking and screaming my way down it...clearly I have tried! My next home will be in a flat land zone for sure!

  2. I haven't been on a bike in a really, really long time. I like the idea of bikes though, and if I had any of the cute ones you pictured, I would ride every weekend!

  3. Having a few bikes for different reasons...triathlons, beach cruiser, mountain biking and a tandem bike for riding with my husband...I'm never sporting one of those cute ensembles when bike riding. Hmmm...maybe I'll have to with my beach cruiser, but I won't skip on the helmet. Cute post!

  7. I rode a bike in college exactly once. That one time I ran a girl over, like she had tire marks on her face, just ran right over her. I get nervous just looking at a bike, but I wish I could be cool like them. Maybe one of those scooter skate boards?

  8. I wish I could ride a bike around here without risking my life. Boston drivers are known to hit bikers so till that changes I am stuck walking- but maybe when we move I can finally get a fun pink bike :)

  10. This reminds me of the earth cruiser I had when I went to UNCW. I got an awesome mint green bike a couple of years ago for my birthday.

  13. So cute and timely-I just brought my bike back to the city. Looking forward to a little exercise and hopefully staying away from the taxis!

  14. Oh what fun! I wish I had a stylish bike like all the ones you featured.

    I haven't used my bikes in years. I think it's time to dusk it off, spraypaint it pink and use it!

  18. I'm a new fan of your blog... love it!

    I'm obsessed with the Liberty of London bike from Target and would love to get it so I could dress super cute and bike down to the farmer's market on Saturday mornings. The thing is I'm a bit clumsy and fear I would get hit by a car or fall over and hit my head on the curb which could lead to severe head injury. Dramatic? Yes. Possible? Knowing me, YES! I mean I can't exactly look super cute in protective head gear riding down to the farmer's market, can I? Maybe I'll just find a cute vintage bike and take pictures posing all natural-like next to it?

  19. Hi! Just found your blog today through Lavender and Lilies, and am so glad I did :-) Love this bike post. I so wish I had places that I could actually ride a bike to, but the sad fact is, I don't. We live in the country where there are lots of hills and not much of anything close by. (boo) But, your post was inspiring just the same! Made me so excited about this lovely warm weather. - Just by reading the title of your blog, I know we must have things in common. You'll have to visit and see my layout/background to know what I mean :-)! Nice to meet you ~Kristin from Windy Poplars http://windy-poplars.blogspot.com
