Maggie in October Cycle Chic


The Planner Guy and I celebrated Oktoberfest at our house with friends on Saturday night.  An evening of brats, beer and a roaring fire in our backyard.  Maggie and her husband Will made the 8-mile trip from their house on their cruisers.  Maggie carried a charming and perfectly shaped pumpkin in her front bike basket. Here they are nabbing the best of our bike parking spaces, just under the front porch.

Will said someone commented to them along their route that on their cruisers and their natty dress they looked like a JCrew ad. 


Maggie decided the party and the ride were cycle chic worthy and make the ride in an attractive fall-ish skirt and boots.

 

I loved Maggie's little bag, which she nabbed at a recent garage sale.


Will and Maggie didn't just carry a very large pumpkin by bike for 8 miles just to make a fashion statement.  They carved it out to carry this delicious green bean saute side to the party.

I'm extremely impressed by Maggie carrying a huge pumpkin in her basket - and that skirt and bag are both beautiful! Very stylish and autumnal:)

I'm impressed too! I would've had a hard time keeping the top on. The beans look yummy too!

The beans were indeed quite wonderful. I have some leftovers, which I plan to heat up with my lunch tomorrow.

So lovely and chic. Now I'm inspired to get a pumpkin to carry in my bike basket :)

I have known Maggie for a number of years and can I say that Mags is known for her stylish accessorizing, her wry wit and for being a 'quick draw', intellectually speaking. But her REAL hidden talents are her audio/visual karaoke stylings which would put any songbird diva to shame...and I bet she could do it with a scarf and a pumpkin!
