I Want to Ride My Bicycle

Let's just take a moment to talk about how awesome bicycles are. I FINALLY got a bicycle to ride around town on! I had one growing up, but I didn't ride it while in college and it kind of broke down in my absence. I knew I wanted a vintage looking bike, but it had to be functional as well, complete with at least three speeds. Sean and I looked around online and in stores all around town and finally found the one for me at (of all places) Walmart! It is a Schwinn Clairmont in a sky blue color with peacock feathers adorning it. I bought a sweet, white basket which I can take into the grocery store to do my shopping and I've already run many errands around town on this bike. I LOVE it. I makes me feel good that I'm getting more exercise as well as saving gas. I hope the weather stays nice for a very long time so that I can continue to ride it until December! haha. It also has gears with 7 speeds so it is nice for working out on the trails too-perfection!

Here was my sweet treat after my morning bike ride-some melon in a vintage dessert cup from my grandmother's house!

It got a little warm today to be wearing a hat and cardigan, but I couldn't resist going with a completely vintage look on this fun!

God Bless, and happy Labor Day!

Your bike is adorable. Mine's actually just about the same color--a sort of mint! I ride it every day to work out, hee hee. :) It's true that it's an amaaaazing work out for you, though!

This set of pictures is absolutely stunning, though. The colors are so bright, the green so vivid... and they're just captured so well! That hat of yours is just so cute.
