Maxi Stripes and Green Bikes

banana republic striped maxi dress and green bike
The other day Brianna from City Fashion Girl (who also takes my pictures from time to time-- like these^^) went downtown and enjoyed the city life a bit. We sat outside Eva's Bakery (it's blue and fabulous!), rode Green Bikes (they are awesome, you can rent one for 24 hours for $5), and drank delicious red Starbuck's teas. It was a fun girls day, to say the least. 
I wore my recently thrifted (from Uptown Cheapskate-- I am there about every week or so buying and selling clothing) Banana Republic striped maxi dress and new favorite Free People lace-up gladiators. Just so you know, those babies are not meant for walking long city distances! The black layer up top? Ya, that is my new favorite "layering bra" from Calvin Klein. It's the cute kind with the white band and Klein logo along the bottom seam. SO COMFORTABLE and the perfect way to cover up my garments if they keep slipping out the top.
This Levi jacket always gets compliments, and I am happy to say it is up-cycled! It is a jacket from when I was younger and decided to let the outgrown look look more like a 3/4 sleeved jacket. BooYah.
Oh, and you know how everyone has a "go-to" fancy hairstyle? Mines this high ponytail. Ain't nobody got time to braid!
