March came in like a lion with its rainy weather, but the lovely spring days we’re experiencing this week are making me long for something other than filmy sundresses and cute sandals. While some of you enjoy Spring Break, others are toiling away on their keyboards (ahem!). Since I’m not scooting around on a Vespa for a Roman holiday (sigh!), I came up with a chic alternative. I saw this bike on CWonder.com and suddenly imagined myself gliding down the sidewalk on Second Avenue North to run into Charm or in downtown Homewood to pop into Molly Green, all while lowering my carbon footprint. Although I haven’t actually been on a bike since I was 12 and my allergies usually have me hotfooting it indoors, this fuchsia beauty (a unisex model which also comes in navy and orange) is enough to make me break out the Keds and hit the pavement. Even better, the online emporium also offers a chic matching helmet, wicker basket, bell, and bike lock!
C. Wonder, which was founded by Tory Burch’s former husband Christopher Burch, is built on the premise that every woman deserves a dose of “wonder.” Its flagship store opened in New York this past October (offering shoppers onsite monogramming and dressing rooms in which the music and lighting can be adjusted), and I am loving everything it offers: clothing, shoes, jewelry and home decor.
