Weekly Wears: A Bicycle Built For Two

Well, we bought another tandem bicycle.  This one feels easier to ride (meaning it's a little shorter and it's wheels are a little fatter) and it's in much better cosmetic shape.  Basically, we couldn't pass it up.  Johnny and I picked it up from a neighbor friend on Sunday and I have not stopped thinking about it since.  I don't know if you've noticed, but I have a bit of an obsessive personality.  Hope mustered up all of her braveness this evening and I took her out for a ride.  The only thing better than an evening bike ride is doing it with a partner!

Dress: c/o ModCloth;  Tank: Marshall's;  Shoes: c/o Ann Roth;  Hair Combs: vintage (garage sale find-- woohoo!); Necklace: gift

I'm looking forward to putting in some time and elbow grease to really clean it up and make it shine... oh, and maybe riding on a date or two.  :))

  7. Love the pinafore with the turquoise tank :) Oh! and that tandem bike is wonderful. I've never tried the tandem, a stroll with "my partner in crime :P" sounds very nice; I definitely must try!

  17. Your outfit is adorable (as usual). And you are brave to ride a bike in a skirt!

    I'm always surprised what a work out I get from riding my bike. I guess I don't use those muscles often in every day life :)
