1 bike, 2 bike, little bike, blue bike

Summer arrived last weekend, sudden and hot and I was not prepared. There aren't many toe-freeing summer shoes in my closet yet, hence the oxfords and most of my summer frocks are still packed away (or on my summer wish list). Lucky for me my mom had this pretty patterned 50's style shirtdress I could borrow from Porridge, a brand carried by Anthropologie. The bike print was an all day reminder that I need to bring my blue bike to my apartment so I can explore further than my feet will carry me through the city.
Do you think it would be lame or cute if I wore this dress to bike in? I wouldn't like to because I'd feel like I was wearing a costume. Of course my mom would say I should because it would be so adorable, but this is the woman who dressed me in matching outfits with my Cabbage Patch Doll back in 1989.

  1. I think you should DEFINITELY wear it while biking! But I guess I'm weird like that. :D The dress is very pretty though and I love it with that casual woven bag.

    The dress is amazing and looks really great with the oxfords, not predictable like sandals could be! I seriously love this look, epitome of summer perfection!

  12. I need some "toe-freeing" shoes in my closet as well.. but this dress is absolutely amazing! I think it would be cute to bike in, albeit a bit costume-y like you said. Whatever the case, this is the perfect beginning-of-summer outfit!

  13. This dress is fantastic!! I absolutely adore the whimsical print, while the classic colors keep it chic. I think the oxfords were a great choice too. It keeps the look grounded and vintage inspired. You look really lovely. I think it would be fun to wear while riding your bike!

  15. Whether or not you wear the bike dress whilst on a bike (personally can't see a problem with doing that!)  I am so in awe of your mother dressing you to match your dolls. Oh my god. That would make an amazing project. Dressing like your childhood dolls. Or making dolls clothes you find which are cool into adult sized clothes...hmmmmm watch this space!
