Bicycles and Pretty Dresses



I decided to spice up the photos a bit and play around with some filters.  I'm so jealous of all the iPhone users who can use Instagram to create cool lomography photos.  I hope Instagram makes an app for Android soon. :)  EDIT: Thanks to my followers for telling me there is Instagram for Android!  I've already started. :D

Anyway, I've been obsessively riding my bike ever since I got it.  It's so much fun and I didn't realize how much I missed bike riding until I started riding again.  I'll tell you that if you ever want to get a workout while biking, single speed cruisers are the way to go!  I'm constantly having to pedal and the lack of speeds make it difficult to go uphill.  Thighs of steel!  LOL.

Hope you enjoy the photos.  And I will enjoy this last day of 70 degree weather.  Have a great day everyone!







Dress and Necklace: Forever 21 // Heels: Dolce Vita

This dress is beautiful and I love your bike. I wish bikes like that made sense in my town! Also I love the filters and good news for you, instagram is on Droids now. It came out a month ago. Also somewhere made photoshop filters that match the ones on instagram. They're quite fun to play around with!

Happy Monday, lady!

Hi Toni! Thanks for your advice on my forum question!! I take it to heart and I'm gonna use it as I continue my blogging journey. I must say that I like what you said about not mindlessly following blogs to get more followers. I must confess that I did that, but it just didn't feel right. Your advice really made me realize that blogging is about what my style is and sharing that with ppl. If they don't like my style then I can't help it. Back to you, this sheer high-low dress is very flattering on you. You rocked it and you look so confident :]

ahhh!! I am in love with the first pic! I love how happy you are and in your own world! It looks so perfect with the dress falling on one side.. its just perfect lol

I super want a cruiser but that is also the problem I was worried about. The lack of speeds. I live in a relatively flat area but I think some friends of mine want to go along Garden highway and stuff. I don't know if I could keep up! But I guess I could look cute with a cruiser trying.. lol

LOVE that dress btw... you always find the most beautiful things!

Heather said...

Nice, light dress - you should have nets on the back wheels so the hem won't get between the spokes!
