A Ride to Plum Point Park


Well, Zach and I had the day off and were really excited to just spend it together and enjoy some fun times starting early in the morning. I made us breakfast, complete with raspberry pancakes and eggs, then we took off on our bikes! I wanted to document as much as possible on our little ride through our neighborhood. There were so many hidden gems! Including a park I had absolutely no idea existed. You can only get there by bike or walking.



The park is called Plum Point (cute right?) and it is nestled along the Elizabeth River. It's the perfect place to fly a kite, have a picnic, and even study. It's just a nice quiet escape from the real world. I can't wait to go back!




And since I figured it would be a fun time to get outfit shots in, I decided to wear a dress for the first time while riding a bike! I was a little apprehensive, but this dress was the perfect length and nothing got caught or torn. What a great way to start our Labor Day. Now if only I didn't have to go to work on a pesky Tuesday.


Dress, Thrifted ($2)
Sandals, ? ($7)
Purse, Fred Flare (gift)
Sunnies, Forever21 ($3)


  1. I thrifted that same dress! Mine cost $7, though, and is a little long. I think I might hem it.

    Clothing aside, that's a great idea for an outing. It's such a pretty park!

  2. @HGGirl actually mine was long too, so I chopped it off and left a raw hem. It seemed appropriate for a summer frolic dress.

  3. Cute dress! And I am super-jealous of your bikes!! I'm searching for one just like yours :)


  4. Very pretty! And the scenery is lovely too! I actually love riding bikes wearing dresses, I used to do it all the time. Lots of aeration! You do have to keep your knees together coming downhill however! ; )

  5. you look so thin emily! biking must be doing your body good hehe :) i love biking in dresses! it feels so nice! i also love discovering random corners of places that i would never have discovered if i were driving! i hate having to go back to school tomorrow too...ick.

  6. you look great! You make me want to own a bike now! :)
