Must confess, save for a few afternoons a few years ago, the bicycle has not left the parked position on the balcony; and perhaps it’s the bad knees or the petrifying city traffic, but much prefer running for exercise. And yet, after coming across this perfectly pretty sommer vintage bicycle in tiffany blue, complete with a classic crafted leather seat and charming wicker basket, suddenly dreaming of long bike rides in the countryside, and sunday lakeside picnics.
Wishing you a beautiful weekend, filled with the things you love. xo

Have a newfound love for tailored suits, in shades of tan and camel, and especially when intermingled with ivory – and immediately, intricately ornate doorways, sparkling jewels, chanel no 5 and always the most delectably flavored macarons in the most elegant hues, become impossibly irresistible.
