Little Orange Riding Bike

Ok, I don't know how those gorgeously dressed European women do it! To be fair to myself, I did just learn to ride a bike less than a year ago. For the longest time, I could only go straight and turn, but once I turned I would just continue in a circle until I jumped off. I could not for the life of me get the bike straight again after a turn..until last year! I may have screamed constantly and endangered many a tree, but I succeeded in learning how to fully ride a bike and no trees were hurt in the process.

      The past few times I was in Europe, I had the pleasure of staying in Italy and France. In the summer, I saw women in beautiful draped dresses and HEELS zipping through traffic on bikes and vespas! Although it's easier to ride vespas in a skirt, I had none around and made due with my boyfriend's childhood bike aka perfect size for my short legs. 

     I love how the circle skirt drapes around the bike as I ride it. It just reminds me of Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday. It's got such a retro feel, and riding a bike is such a thrill. I can't help but smile in the photos :)

     Now if only I had the guts to ride a bike in Europe when I go on vacation...

  2. I guess there's no graceful way to ride a bike haha - but you do look great in that pretty skirt!


  3. I love bike riding - but I'm currently bikeless! I'm actually on the hunt for a bike for myself. You're so adorable in your skirt on your wheels. :)
