✴ all things...wish you were here

I've just recently ordered a bike from here. I'm quite excited and have been imagining all sorts of 1940's/50's style cycling. Probably getting a bit carried away as usual.
I can't help but think of Emily Lloyd in Wish You Were Here
The floaty summer dresses, retro sun glasses, with just a dab of rosy tinted lip gloss and balmy summer breezes through your hair....Ahh...sounds lovely doesn't it?
Of course this is probably NOT how it is going to be {imagine, stuck behind a lorry with Sainsburys carrier bags dangling precariously from the handlebars...} but for the moment this is the daydream and I'm not parting with it for anything!

  1. Oh my goodness, Im coming with you! Summer ladies riding bikes in the countryside! :D

  2. Oh definitely, Nikeah! But you've spent a summer here, right? Better pack those rain macs! x

  3. Ok I am in love with your bike! It is gorgeous, and so pretty. Cath Kidson is also a resident in my house at the moment - very good taste I must say! B:)

  4. love the idea of an old fashioned bike - you must wear a red flowing dress while riding or perhaps a yellow polka dot dress :)

  5. ...with umbrellas then! :D

  6. I'll join you! I love the idea of a 40's-50's comeback! :)
