The outfit of the day and a broken bike. Off to a great start.

Hi there my friends, hope your Monday is well. Mine is one heck of a hot mess, we are off to a great and wonderful start to the week ahead. I wanted to show off a cute outfit of the day before I got home to try and take my son for a bike ride. Ugh. What a mess that was!

Today, my initial outfit was a cute striped shirt from Shabby Apple, jeans, wedges, and some great jewelry! And of course my newest fave bag! I am a bit obsessed with it. This was a great outfit to run some early morning errands.

I just love this shirt! It is double layered but is so cute. And it works for the office, or for a dinner out. Just change the pants and shoes.  It has a nice sparkle to it and you know that is nice to have some days. Some days you need some SPARKLE to your life along with your coffee!

And I have paired it with my Coach sunnies, which OK I wear a lot. Not just because I love them but they are necessary. I am pretty much blind, no joke. I have a weird eye condition called hysterical amblyopia. It is so much fun to have. The sunglasses are RX. 🙂

Which is why I don’t switch it out often. But, I do need a pair for my contacts.


And the little knit bracelet my niece made for me a long time ago and I still use it. I use it for my keys.

OK, so for the bike situation. Let me put my rage face away. So, first off, we took off in the bike after it took me an hour to put the crap back together. Yeah the bike and stroller were not attached for storage purposes. I broke a nail, chipped my polish while fixing my beloved bike. Only to have the nightmare continue. The tires were taking air slowly. Bad inner tubes. Great! But more on that in a minute!


Flash forward a few minute and much swearing later. I got the bike and child out. Then, I got down the road with no water. Which is needed since I live in Mordor.

We turned around and I tried to air up the tires,again! The air pump small enough for the stroller tires broke! Then the tires wouldn’t inflate. OK, tires that are under inflated can make the whole thing seem 100 lbs heavier. I need inflated tires. And it didn’t happen that way. My tiny child was over heated and mad by this time(he doesn’t understand) because the vroom vroom isn’t working. So, now we are indoors and I am finishing up my blog post while he is playing with toys. I am still grumbling. Raaaaaa. Oh well.

    Awwwhhh… I’m sorry to hear about the bike situation. I can just imagine your kid’s frustration about the “vroom vroom”. Hehehe. So cute, though. But you look amazing! I love the casual chic vibe. Plus I am loving your neckpiece and tote <3 xoxo
