Every Bike Should Feel This Good

I am so excited to FINALLY unveil my newly repainted bicycle! To borrow a line from Vineyard Vines "Every bike should feel this good!"

I plan on sharing a full post on how I painted my bike but let me tell you why this was so important to me. I wanted one of the Tiffany blue seen on every Instagram account beach cruisers. Problem was, every time I went to look at one I longed for the Peugeot I already owned! My FIL gifted me this bike almost 10 years ago and while the grey and maroon colours just weren't for me, I loved everything about it. It's a well built bike and I've only had to put in one minor and one major repair. The thought of giving up this bike made me incredibly sad.

When I sat down and wrote out exactly what I wanted (I'm a list junkie) I realized that I wanted my bike, but in a girlie colour with a cute basket. Well, that I could handle myself, and I did! Like I said, I'll share all the how-to's in a post this week and I won't sugar coat it - it wasn't easy but it was oh-so worth it. I could not be happier with my new pink bicycle!

I picked up this Vineyard Vines long sleeve when I was in Westport Connecticut a few weeks ago and it's been on major repeat. It's a simple, easy to wear on the weekends kind of shirt. It's made of this incredibly soft cotton and I love that it's long sleeve, keeps the sun off my arms while I'm riding my bike! The same could also be said of my Lilly Pulitzer shorts. I bought these two years ago as part of the Lilly Pulitzer warehouse sale and I'm so glad I purchased three pairs (in different colours) because they really are the most comfortable shorts! My super bright runners were a spring purchase recommended by an unlikely source, my hubby! He bought a pair of the memory foam runners and swears by them. I didn't believe him until I wore his to run outside, they are insanely comfortable! I actually have two pairs now, they are my go-to running shoes!
