I’ve got a bike. You can ride it if you like.
It’s got a basket, a bell that rings and things to make it look good.
I’d give it to you if I could, but I borrowed it.
You’re the kind of girl that fits in with my world.
I’ll give you anything, everything if you want things.

Happy Monday darlin’s! Here in Melbourne we’re experiencing such beautiful, pleasant summer weather – the type that makes you want to drink affogatos, swan around in light jackets and ride your bike to the park for a lazy cider. It’s inspired me to finally get my bike fixed, I’m ashamed to say it was neglected for a while and is in dire need of some lovin’.
It’s also got me dressing practically, and if you haven’t noticed from previous posts my two stapled at the moment seem to be my straw boater and checked pants (warning, do not try to ride to the shops in your favourite wiggle dress). Also I’m trying out new things with my hair, as much as I love my bob sometime’s a gal needs a change!
I am wearing…
Olive blazer – Savers
Silk blouse – Alannah Hill
High waisted checked pants – Thrifted in Brisbane
Straw Boater – costume shop in Brisbane
Vintage flowers in hair – Taken from a 40′s hat
Black suede 1940′s pumps – Clara Fox
Art Nouveau brooch – Gift from Jesse
In other news, I’m getting excited for the Vintage Meet-up Picnic this coming Sunday, organised by Jacinta of Razzle Dazzle Rose. I believe it will be from about 2 or 3 pm in Edinburgh Gardens, and I do hope to see you all there! I think it’s a really great idea that I hope turns into a regular event. There are so many vintage sweethearts I’m dying to beat one’s gums with. It should be the cat’s meow, so if you’re around you should come along!
