As Brittany wrote yesterday, we spent our Saturday at our favorite annual all day event- BFD. Catching up with old friends and soaking up the sun is always more fun with great music. Cold War Kids, I’m talking to you. The day before, we stopped in to Old Navy and found a bunch of great summer items. I picked up this great tank and wanted to share the rest of my sunshine basics.
(Tank– Old Navy)
(Sandals- Target, Jeans- H&M, Purse- a find in Italy)
(I love eyelet- this will be a summer go-to)
Always wear a hat when it is sunny out, it will really save your scalp from getting burnt! If you can’t do that, pull your hair back, that will also help. Ok, we’re off to the rock show.
(Of Monsters and Men)
While in Lucca, I was able to ride around the wall surrounding the village. It was very beautiful and the weather was perfect. I insisted on wearing a skirt and in the past, that has ended with me being blinded because my skirt has flown up over my head and obscured my vision. Since that fateful Golden Gate Bridge bike ride I have learned to wear a much longer skirt, one I can tuck under my legs. It’s fashionable and suitable for me to be around families. Win-win.
(Make sure you have a sick ride with a loud bell, it’s super hip and keeps you safe while you’re ridin’ the open road)
(My skirt went just below my knees, it kept me cool and felt retro)
(Close up of that sweet bike bell and this cute bracelet I got in a church in Sienna)
(For leisurely rides it’s okay to wear sandals, especially if they have straps. I grabbed these cuties at Target right before my trip. They are super comfortable)
(This skirt is an oldie but a goodie from Anthropologie)
One of my favorite Summer activities is bike cruising. I like to feel the warm breeze on my skin as I pass by the blossoming flowers. Maybe pack a picnic and cruise on down to your local park next weekend, I couldn’t think of a better or more relaxing thing to do.
