Fashion Weekend Edition: Play Clothes

26 May

When my oldest sister Susan was a little girl, she suddenly decided she wouldn’t wear shorts or pants anymore, only dresses. So my mother went straight to her sewing machine and whipped up a set of play dresses. I think little Susan was on to something. This loose-fitting cotton dress has become my go-to outfit for kicking around town on the weekend: easy to throw on, comfortable and girlishly feminine with a sporty twist.

We took these photos for Bike Fun with Dick and Janet, a new blog I’m writing for the Mountain View Voice.

About Fashion Friday: Inspired by a 2011 Bike to Work Day challenge sponsored by the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, this series highlights the broad range of “dress for the destination” bicycling fashions.

    That’s awesome! (Will we see less of you here, since you’ve got a gig with a paper?) The dress sounds great, too.

      It’s only one post per week for the Bike Fun blog so it shouldn’t impact One Woman, Many Bicycles too much. How much I write usually depends on how crazy it is at work. I often have a backlog of stories to write, like I do now. And Bike Fun only allows one photo, which makes things quicker too.
