I hadn't set foot on a bike in over a decade until a month ago when my main man decided that it was high time I  accompanied him on bike rides.  I just wanted a simple bike that would get me from point a to b so we picked up this adorable (and affordable!) powder blue bike at Walmart.  Except the women's bikes felt too large so we bought the girls' version (which looking at these photos may be a wee bit too small...)

The first time we went for a bike ride I was so wobbly I was weaving in and out of the bike paths as if I'd just taken a couple shots of tequila! Now I'm a natural- it's true what they say about never forgetting how to ride a bike! I love the feeling of wind in my hair and the burn in my muscles after we've gone up a few hills.  Today we rode our bikes to the grocery stores to get some fresh air and exercise while picking up some spinach and dryer sheets. {These photos aren't the best quality because it was after 7 p.m. and my poor Samsung camera can only do so much}.

I started Scarf Sundays as a way to incorporate my scarf collection into my outfits but the lightweight material and silver detailing of this scarf makes it one of my favourites so it has now been showcased twice (previously worn like this).

You can check out my other Scarf Sunday features here, here and here.

I picked up these studded flats for $20 at Winners and they are so versatile they have quickly become my go to for comfort and style (previously worn like this and this.

  9. Love the rocker touch on your shoes! And that scarf makes a nice statement against an all-black outfit. Bike riding is SOOO fun, I bike to work most days and love the thrill when I get to go down a hill. The weather's perfect for it these days.

  10. Those shoes are so cute - what is Winners??

    Love the color of the bike, but yeah, it may be a bit small? But adorable!

  11. you are the cutest bike rider ever! i can never look that good on my bike. i'm always in shorts a t-shirt and some sneakers :) well, to be honest i never go bike riding anymore. my hubby bought me a cute cruiser and i've only ridden it once :(

  12. Such a pretty scarf! I have been looking for the perfect bike (preferably a pretty colour and with a bit of vintage flair) for a while now since I would love to be be able to bike down to the market for a baguette and pretend that I am in Europe, or somewhere at least a little fancier than Ottawa.


One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
