I love how bike shorts make any dress instantly more mobile. Wore this to Poste (excellent cocktail and cheese selection, btw) on Friday for a friend’s bday and could not have been more comfortable.
Also, Delectable Swank featured me as her Delectable Blog of the Week. Check it out!

I love the print on the dress and it was clever to put biking shorts underneath so you don't have to ever worry about overexposure!

2) Congrats on your feature!
3) Loooooove the new profile pic 🙂

That's a great tactic, I have some biker shorts I haven't used in ages, but thanks to your great idea I think I'll be putting them to use for something other than sport 🙂
The biker shorts are perfect for everything, especially at this time of summer, as its getting colder.. nice colour at the dress!
ahhhhh, I love it, and I love barbarella!
I love the biker shorts! They are super cute with your shirt.
And I knowww, school appropriate and work appropriate is difficult when I want to wear something crazy and random. Oh well, wear it anyway right? :]
love how you threw on the biker shorts . makes the whole look tie up so well .with so many buckeled straps and then the shorts the dress goes from fem to fem/edgyish 🙂
I LOVE that top. And the heels. Very cute, very…chic….
confession: i found a pair of shorts similar to that which fit under some of the longer dresses i have.
i always feel like i'm hiding a huge secret when i wear them under my dresses, so comfy 😛
omgosh. i love bike shorts! i swear by them (especially for biking, haha). at this fashion board meeting i had, we were trend spotting and i just spazzed because i loved biker shorts. haha. you look GREAT! and i lovelovelove your heels (:
I love the printed blouse! It looks so cute with the biker shorts! Did I mention I can't get enough of those Forever 21 shoes? xxoxxo

and i keep staring at your hair and debating whether i want to chop mine off…. i'm so indecisive about this

OOOOH! I love the bike shorts. I've seen a few VERY stylish bloggers sport them lately, and now I'm thinking I might need to look into it!!
Great dress. I love the shape and colour. The bike shorts are a cute twist!

Little Bow Prep
Oooh! I like the dress!
i like it! i linked it on my blog if you don't mind!
you have an amazing sense of style — the addition of the biker shorts up the playfulness of the outfit. and the color/pattern are just gorgeous!
that dress is everything i want in a dress. the bright color (in my favorite hue of course) with the killer black pattern,with the fitted body, and the quarter length sleeves. loves it!
i just realized that i've been wearing the biker shorts for a while now, since what? three years ago i think. i wear them for the same reason you posted: mobility. cept i always rolled them up and never below the hems of my dresses.
and btw: yeah those shoes are stellar. the steel toes at the very tip of em are a excellent touch
the vain and the bored
Very sweet outfit !!
I really love the resolution of the camera you are using 🙂 and how do you upload your pics?? Its really nice and gives justice to what you are are wearing 🙂
