Sneakers and Sunhats

Summer Bicycle Rides

This is from yesterday--a simple, summery outfit for a day of reading and errands. I'm trying to pare things down for summer, and I'm liking simple combinations of tees and skirts, or just dresses and flats. I am also still head over heels for these keds--so classic and comfortable and I feel like they go with just about everything.

Summer Bicycle Rides

I am super pale and burn easily, so I've been on the lookout for a big summer hat to shade my Irish skin from the sun. Yesterday, I finally found this giant floppy sunhat, which I love even though it's a bit ridiculous. Of course, I wore immediately even though it didn't exactly go with the outfit.

So this last picture is for my mom, who worries about me getting sunburned. Don't worry, mommala! Check out this hat!

Cute shoes!! They are so a piece of flare! My mom is always trying to get me to wear a hat or wear sunscreen so I hear ya! It's cute tho!

I am so into skirts and tees this summer. Best mix for a hot midwest.

Alex said...

I love the oversized hat, so fun.

Cute outfit!!

I think a pair of red flats would have done the trick in a more sophisticated way.

Love,

Your straw hat is adorable, and the photos are gorgeous!

This is too cute! It looks like you should be riding through Italy or France or something =]

This sounds weird--but that is a great picture-taking wall. Well done.

This is PERFECT. I'm so obsessed with these skirts now. I need more patterns and I need to make mine less full next time. If you check the blog out today, I'm wearing one of them! :)

I love the hat - I don't think I can pull off wide brim hats (or maybe I could you never know), but I so admire the look on others. Hope you have a great summer - looks like you're already off to a great start.

Ooh, I love the red sneakers! What a fun summer hat - great for the beach!

I'm so envious - we had dumping rain with 50mph wind gusts this morning :) That's been our spring so far, mostly.

I love the straw hat, I think more people should wear them! Which reminds me, I need to find a good straw fedora for when it actually stops raining.

Cute! The red sneaks are a fun pop. Now I am having flashbacks of buying keds from the shoe bins at Bradlees, back in the day. :)

Branka said...

You look so cute in that outfit!
I totaly dig eveything else too, I have a bike just like that and a big dorky hat like yours, love the look!

Scholar Style Guide said...

Cute red keds! Man, I need to get on board this wearing-a-skirt-while-biking bandwagon. The girls at academichic were rocking skirts while cruising on bikes, too, and you all look adorable. However, I have tried riding my bike in a skirt, and I just look prudishly awkward, ha.

Love that summery hat, too!

You are just too cute! And I'm so with you about simplicity. All I've wanted lately has been really simple outfits, with only a few pieces. I adore those Keds!

Whitters said...

orchidsinbuttonholes said...

Oh this is so summertime - cool and chic and fun. Love the red sneaks, and that hat is stylish and skin-friendly. I'm also super-fair and so I swear by hats and parasols and SPF.

Floral skirts are making me really sa. I don't have one but I feel like I must have one. You are adorable and this hat is great! I think it is perfect to wear with a striped summer dress. Good girl, I bet your mom is proud of you =)
