Daily Outfit: Riding the Pinellas Trail (Part 1)

The weather has been terrific in Florida lately, perfect for a day of bike riding.  My boyfriend and I are both avid bicyclists, so we and a friend decided to tackle a portion of the Pinellas Trail, a gorgeous paved bike trail  in Pinellas county.  The temperature was just chilly enough to need a long sleeve, so I decided to use layers to my advantage and be prepared for the changes in body temperature that come with exercise.

Long sleeve: American Eagle (thrifted)
T-shirt: bought at a theme park
Shorts: Ann Taylor Loft (hemmed by me)
Shoes: Converse
Purse: Timbuk2
Earrings: June Designs
Bracelets: Jill Popowich

The long sleeve layering was an item I got on my recent consignment trip, so I was happy to get to use it.  The t-shirt is from a theme park

The shorts are some hand-me-down dress pants that I hemmed, because I have a lot of trouble finding shorts that fit me in the stores.  Shoes are plain ole’ Chuck Taylors, which are pretty comfy for cycling.  The bag is Timbuk2, and I bought it in New York.  It has lots of handy compartments, and the added benefit of being relatively water-proof, which is important for outdoor activities.  I kept my jewelry and make-up simple, because I knew that I would be getting a bit sweaty, and I didn’t want anything getting snagged on my helmet.

Be prepared for a post tomorrow on all the details of this super-fun day trip!  Stay tuned for part 2!
