outfit of the day(bird): triathlon




romper~ Urban Outfitters
shoes and scarf~ Target
rings~ Etsy and Mille
necklace~ Etsy, gift from Megan

On Saturday morning, we awoke to a gorgeous day and Jim, the kids, and I decided to go on a long, leisurely bike ride, followed by a trip to the splash pad, followed by lunch on a patio. We biked to a nearby lake and were riding on the path around the lake, enjoying the warm day, light breeze, and beautiful scenery. All was well until we got to the opposite side of the lake and came upon loud, top 40 music and a giant, cheering crowd. And they were cheering for us! Needless to say, we were quite confused. That is, until a bunch of elementary school kids began passing us, all wearing bib numbers. It was then that we realized that we'd accidentally ridden into a children's triathlon. Obviously, we got out of the way as fast as we could and cheered the kids on as they rode past. It was fun and unexpected and, quite possibly, the closest I will ever come to competing in a triathlon!

  2. Silly me, I have never learned how to ride a bike. But your Saturday sounds perfect Nora. That romper is truly adorable and you are rocking that head wrap, too.

    Megan, check out my current post with the black shorts (when you can). I feel like my two outfits would look incredible on you. I can totally picture you wearing them. =)))

    Have a Great Day, Ladies!

  4. Hahaha, at least you were able to move out of the way! My husband and I took a wrong turn one time on our way home and ended up in downtown DC driving in a gay pride parade for several blocks. It was pretty interesting, but since the guys walking around us had on assless chaps and bikini tops (and we were pretty plain in jeans and t-shirts), I'm pretty sure people could tell we weren't supposed to be part of the parade.

  9. Haha, I can imagine that moment, how thoughts run through your mind seeing those cheering kids. It sounds like you had such a wonderful day and you have spent it in style. You look so fabulous! I could never pull of so chic romper like you. I look so funny in them. Have tried few and that was enough.

  10. LOL Well done on the bike ride! Actually my kids and I took a couple of bike rides this weekend too. They are the best. I don't think I would EVER be in the shape to do a triathlon so you're miles ahead of me on that one!

  19. Darling ensemble and story, Nora. I was laughing and snickering and having a great time right along with ya'll. Ya, like I have never gotten close an form of a "athalon" of any sort. Perhaps my thunder thighs give me away. hhmmmmm?
