Bicycle Beauties....

I would love one of these for zooming about the city....but as a mother of two it is just not practical....maybe one day.....a holiday on the French or Italian Riviera with my husband in charge of the steering would suit me just fine....

Sounds like a plan....

Just my style....baskets on the front and the back....newspapers, flowers, baguette.....and me looking chic in a tea-dress and a pretty hat....



My favourite maybe....decorate anything with sparkly lights and I'm a happy girl....





Jessica Alba looking tres chic....





"Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid"....this was a great scene....

Bicycle in a paddy field....great colour....

Happy Monday!

  6. Hi there - love those women looking attractive on bikes. That is hard to pull off especially with the compulsory bike helmet you have to wear in Australia. I must admit Helmet Head does put me off somewhat. But my long term plan once children more coordinated is to get stylish italian bike, and ride nonchalantly back from market and to and fro, great for the legs... xoxo

  13. Oh Simone, what a beautiful post. This is the tonic I need after party weekend. I honestly felt too tired to think about blogging, but thought I'd just have a quick peak at the bottom of the basket, and you've brightened my day yet again. Also your lovely comments to me very much appreciated. xx
    ps. bikes are cool.

  14. This makes me want to steal away on my daughters beach cruiser bike with her cute basket and go out to the farmers market for produce, bread, flowers and a stop at the cafe....but alas, she is so busy riding it, I think I need my own. Lovely lovely post, Simone...gorgeous photos! You always know how to make us smile! XXOO

  15. Happy week to you Simone!

    Love this series of images - makes me want to put on a frilly long skirt, some lace-up boots, and pedal my way to the flower shop!

  16. I have the bike in front of the poem-I ride it to and from my car to my office at the university. Parking costs a fortune and I needed exercise. So I park a mile out and cycle in. Now if i could get a basket and plant flowers on it and still ride it...wouldnt that be grand! :)

  18. Why is it that the French and Italian women look so chic on their bikes?
    We were in the gorgeous medieval town of Lucca, Italy this summer and most people rode bikes (as cars are not allowed in) and boy did those women look fabulous!
    Even an elderly woman with her little dog in a basket looked so elegant!!
    Great post Simone!
    I love Image 4 .... have a great week.

    LOVE IT!

  20. I have a lovely bike with a basket on the front, & love getting out around the waterfront with my girls. I agree with Jane though - helmet head is so not attractive! At least I give Lycra a wide berth!!!

  21. Oh, Simone... I know that you will think that I'm just saying this, but I was thinking of doing a post on bicycles ( we both have such good taste !!!!) as there are some lovely photographs around..... and you have found some beauties....... and like you say, fairy lights look good on anything....you can't have too many white fairy lights.
    ... and the ones with flowers in their baskets... I have one on my sidebar....so beautiful.
    A wonderful, fun and charming post. XXXX

  24. Old bicycles are just so charming. I'm a horrible cyclist though so I just admire them from afar. ;)

  25. Hi sweet Simone, I missed you while I was away. Your posts are just the thing to perk me up. Lovin' all the bike pictures. I would love one of those:) Hope you are having a great day on the other side of the world.

  26. My boyfriend is restoring an old scooter for me. I can't wait for it to be finished and to pick the color! Im thinking sparkle pink maybe?

  27. This makes me want to break out into that Queen song...."BIIIII-cycle, BIIIII-cycle, I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike!" I think you should definitely get a vintage bike with a basket on the front and then ride through your local park, singing that song at the top of your lungs. I dare you...Meredy xo.

  28. Loved this post. There is something about photos of bicycles that I find interestingly appealing and amusing. Great photo selections.
