Follow my blog with bloglovin´

imagine my excitement when i discovered that topshop is having a bicycle style contest on chictopia! i think i’ve written about it on here before, but i kind of consider myself to be a rather avid cyclist. it’s true that i’m a bit out of shape at the moment, but it’s also true that every year, i go on very long bicycle tours!

one mentionable trip included riding my bike from the tippy top of the california coast, all the way down to the bay area, camping along the way. we even did a little scenic route through the lost coast. epic. seriously. i’ve also ridden from the bay area to southern california along the coast as well. phew! it really is beautiful.

and i don’t post those pictures, because honestly, it’s not all that fashionable. but when i go on shorter trips, i use my experience to try and find outfits that are both comfortable, functional, and fashionable. really. and i just so happened to be going out on a little bike ride this morning, and this is what i wore! i always wear sandals while riding because i hate sweaty feet! and one must always have a pair of bike shorts. i’m rather enjoying this particular pair of nude colored shorts! hehe!

oh, and thank you so much for the comments on my last post and all the posts! i have been really bad at leaving comments lately and i owe you! especially because all of you guys really help me out when i’m feeling down! thanks for the support, really!!!!! :) :) :)

Your bike trips sound amazing! I'm so stoked about the bike contest (I don't own a bike though so I cannot enter); but Topshop actually has free bike rentals all month long here in NYC! It's a great concept! I hope you win the contest, you look cute in your little dress.
