This weekend, I'm gearing up for summer. Getting my bike tuned up at the local Community Cycles is just as important to me as style when it comes to the sunnier months that lay ahead. This baby will get me through the triple digit days and the adventurous nights that will inevitably ensue-- so I like to take good care of her. For me, both style and cycling are about freedom. Freedom of movement! There's nothing worse than a constricting pair of pants or an annoying handbag when it's hot and I'm trying to get from point A to point B. So something I've been loving lately is sporting my Tempest with a good wrap dress (like this one pictured here from Billabong). The Tempest Tote/Backpack lends for an annoyance-free commute. I just put it into backpack mode, put my headphones on and slip my phone into the side pocket for hands-free jamming. As for the dress, there's a an intangible ease to a linen frock-- one with a few creases from wear. It tells a story of sun-bleached nostalgia with promises of soft-serve and late night make-out sessions. I can't wait to see what this summer brings! What's your favorite summer adventure?
