I love when I’m having an easy morning and I’m able to meet Lindsey for lunch around her work. Our schedules are so different that we don’t get to spend as much time together as we wish, so whenever we have a chance to squeeze in a little QT for ourselves we do it.

Now during the summer, one of our favorite things to do is to bike around the city. Lindsey just upgraded her bike to a Vanmoof, which is the dopest electrified and smart bike ever created, and on the day we took these photos we were riding it near the UN building in Midtown east.

I was wearing my new favorite high waisted black jeans from Mott & Bow, which are so comfortable that I can even bike wearing them, I got my bodysuit at Zara during a sale and I wear it all the time (I listed a few similar down below), my rockstar sunnies from Yves Saint Laurent, and my new watch that goes with me EVERYWHERE since I got it a few weeks ago. It is part of the Swatch’s new Skin collection in which all the models are super thin. That makes the watches pretty light and flexible, so you can wear it all the time doing any kind of activity. I wear mine when I go to work, meet my friends, go shopping, and biking (duh!).

As I am writing this post I realized how summer it’s going by so fast and soon I won’t be able to enjoy biking anymore [insert crying emoji here]. So I better start enjoying it as much as I can. What about you? What kind of activity is making you happy this summer?
