Outfit Idea // Summer Ready with DeSmet NYC

Remember a couple weeks back, I styled that beautiful silk camisole for date night?  Well, I'm back with another versatile piece from the DeSmet NYC collection.  Today I'm wearing a fabulous linen tunic for a summer bike ride.  Besides being incredibly well made, I love the styling options that this garment provides.   Here I'm wearing it as an easy dress, made extra chic with a panama hat, but it would be so charming worn over a button up shirt for a jumper look.  Either way, looking at these photos has me itching to get out of my office and have a summer adventure!

Summer Friday (Bike Rides)

Sometimes when I picture summer bike riding, I don't even see my own memories, I picture the scene below from one of my favorite movies, Now and Then.  This scene makes me as happy as if it were my own childhood.  I lived on a main road, so was never free to hop on my bike and head to my friend's, but alas, I have made up for all the bike riding and more than I missed as a kid riding around New York City.  Still to this day, come October, as the mornings get too chilly to hop on the bike, I think head to next spring and this song plays in my head and I am happy.

Wear in the World

My first trip to San Francisco was around this time two years ago.  The weather was just perfect, equal parts summer and fall.  I was out to visit a great friend, and since then, another couple of friends have made the move to the city by the bay.  I would love to take another trip out there soon.  Since all the sight seeing is out of the way, I would make time for more leisurely activities I might do if I lived there, like bike riding or hitting the Alameda Flea Market.





Shorts with tights, comfy boots and lots of layering make for the perfect fall San Francisco day.
