Being a single gal...instead of a man i have two other great loves in my life..Duke (of course) & Gertie my bicycle! Both of which i think bring me just as much joy and annoyance as having a significant other anyway, except i win all the arguments and i get to hog the bed! (although birds and bicycles dont give great hugs...only downfall)

I had great plans for Gertie when i first bought her, it was going to be my main source of transport and i was going to explore Perth every weekend with a baguette and flowers in my basket (thats what every gal does...right?) but im sad to say i still drive everywhere and the furtherest i have travelled is from Wembley to Mt Lawley (which took me two hours...and i came close to dying) so now Gertie gets a trip to the supermarket or around my suburb at least once a week...once it isnt so hot i think it will be time i took her out a little more!

These photos are also from the amazing Tegan Ptasznyk we spent an afternoon around Subiaco and snapped a few photos before the sun went down...you may notice i have straight hair (holy..cow) which is a very very rare thing so enjoy it while you can folks!! I also fell in love with the flower wall...the purple and yellow are a match made in heaven!

I hope your having a swell week Xx

(Wearing: Vintage wool skirt, op shopped blouse, Red ribbon headband, Hobbs heels, Gertie is from Reid Bicycles)

I insisted on getting a gorgeous pink bike for Christmas and I'm sad to say that after one trip to Rottnest it hasn't ventured much further then my suburb either. I definitely think a cute riding outfit helps though! You look totally perfect in these pictures, definitely inspiring me to get riding again! x Hannah

Such gorgeous photos Ally. I love the straight hair, it's nice to mix things up every now and then. I have never ridden in heels is that tricky? Love the bike. xx Jenelle
