Hat Birthday Party & OOTD

I have been so overwhelmed trying to edit all of my VLV 16 photos and try to get them posted; please pardon my tardiness just a little longer.

In the meantime, I wanted to do a very short outfit / weekend post. Sunday held the hat-required-birthday party of a dear friend and cohort, Mr. T-Burd (featured below on the left with the ever dapper Mo). 

My boyfriend and I decided to bike over to the festivities as it was so nice (64 degrees Fahrenheit/17.7 degrees Celsius) and sunny outside for the first time in weeks.

During our ride over to T-Burd's house, an older gentleman pulled up beside me and told me that "Everyone should look just like you when the bicycle." Such a sweet thing to say; it definitely made me smile.

The party was wonderful and I got to dance for the first time since VLV.

My ridiculously happy bicycle featured prominently on the porch

Happy Birthday T-Burd



  1. You look positively ADORABLE!!! xoxo

  2. You look lovely, and what a sweet compliment from the old gent! :) Looks like you all had a fun time - Happy Birthday Tyler!!!

    ps. I totally understand how overwhelming the Viva posts can be! I managed to get mine done, but now I am similarly overwhelmed with all the photo editing and writing about the LA part of my trip! xx

    1. I was shocked how fast you got through all your pictures. Shocked and impressed!

  3. Hehe your happy bicycle is just fantastic! Beautiful colour. And your hair flowers are really pretty too. You must have about a million photos of VLV to sort through! Very exciting!

    1. I think I have around 500 pictures of VLV and I have been so... lazy?

  4. It looks like you guys had total blast! Happy birthday wishes to your friend!

    Love your jeans and Freddies outfit - the snood was a marvelous touch. I'll have to try partnering mine with repro denim soon, too.

    Big hugs,
    ♥ Jessica

    1. I saw your Freddies outfit! You looked so great Jessica.

      Give that snood a try. Can't wait to see some photos!

  5. What a lovely post that totally captures a fun, happy day so well! I love your bike! So cute! And those hair flowers are divine!
