Pedal to the Metal

When J and I spent a few days in Red Lodge, MT on our way home from his grandmother’s funeral last week, one of our very favorite things about it was that we could ride our bikes from our hotel to wherever we needed or wanted to go-from daytime adventures to dinner and drinks out on the town. And fortunately for me, I had thought to pack my go-to chambray sleeveless shirt, and Marc Jacobs hobo (that also doubles as a cross body bag)-both of which made for perfect riding attire!

I can’t believe I am hitting the road again for work today.  Pretty sure I haven’t slept in my own bed for more than 4 nights in a row in the last month.  Or completely unpacked from any of my trips, if I’m really being honest.  🙂  Guess I know one thing I’ll be doing this weekend.

Hope you are having a wonderful week!

I love my red skinny jeans. In fact, I’ve found over the last year or so that despite their vibrant hue, they are just about as versatile as blue jeans. And in addition to going with just about anything, they are also just plain fun. Especially when mixed with the unexpected-like neon and snow leopard.

I love mixing primary colors together-there is just something so refreshing and simple about the combination.  It’s sort of like going back to the basics.  But a word to the wise, when mixing primary colors, limit yourself to two at a time.  Otherwise, you might end up looking more like a finger painting project you did in the 1st grade rather than a fashionista.

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!
