The first few moments on a bicycle always brings me back to the first time I dropped by training wheels, with memories of my dad sprinting alongside me while gripping onto my seat and cheerfully encouraging me to keep pedaling! He lets go and exhilaration ensues. And that was just the beginning of my entire youth revolved around my beloved two-wheeler. When Papillionaire Bicycles offered me to build my own vintage-inspired dutch style bike, I was beyond excited. It had been years since I owned a bicycle! I chose the Stommer, the most laid back silhouette they offer, and customized the speed, size, color and details down to the leather handlebar grips, premium leather saddle, tires and basket. What can I say, I’m absolutely in love with my cream colored beauty and have hardly gone a day without giving it a spin. My husband was inspired to pick one out for himself and we’re looking forward to bringing little Quincy along for the ride this summer.

Whimsical and v pretty xx
Love love love!
I would so ride a bike if it looked like this! Always envisage myself riding one of these beauties in the summer but just can never quite justify the spend… But if it was this gorgeous!

Oh wow these bicycles are so beautiful <3
it turned out so pretty! I love the combo of caramel leather and creamy white and those flowers are so beautiful!
What kind of flower is that? The big ones? There’s a close up on them in the second to last pic. Love at first sight!

Lovely flowers, but I seriously have some major bike envy at the moment!
