Maisy









Outfit Details:
Sretsis dress
thrifted belt
vintage hat
Bloch flats (c/o)
Ray-Ban RB5226 cat-eye glasses
Coach Madison Shoulder Flap Bag (c/o) 
La Mer watch (c/o)
Papillionaire Sommer bicycle (her name is Maisy)

I'm not usually the type to do anything special for my birthday, nor am I one to buy myself birthday presents. This year, both happened. Bobby planned a special birthday for me, and I splurged on a new bicycle. After a long search and a lot of bookmarking, I happened upon the exact bicycle I wanted - the one I always had in mind - in the window of their local shop. I may be quick with my flamingo purchases, but I usually take a lot of time to decide on purchases - especially an investment like this. It's rare that I pick anything up without hesitation, but this bike was an exception. And considering how much I've been riding it around, I'd say it was worth it!

  6. What a cute bike! No wonder why you made the decision. Love the mint color, and how beautiful it looks with the basket with flowers. Hope you had a great birthday at North Fork! :) I am also a low key birthday girl, but hey sometimes there has to be the exception which proves the rule.
