THE REASON TO DRESS:
A bike ride in the centre of the city. Modena, is completely connected by bike paths. I can get literally everywhere on my bike and if I can’t get there by bike it probably isn’t worth going to!
One of the hardest things with having a small baby was passing almost a year without taking my bike anywhere. Now that he is over a year old and summer has arrived I’ve invested in a *new* (actually used, but new to me!) bike with a super special bike seat.
I got my Italian driver’s licence while I was pregnant AND I learned to drive a standard car, which in my North American books makes me pretty special! Even though I can drive on these Italian streets, somehow life is just a little more relaxing if I can take my bike. So until the weather changes and my legs hold out, me + toddler + my bike is all I need this summer.
WHAT I WORE:
Teal high-waisted soft silk shorts (found here) with horizontal pleating along the top, white body tank top, cranberry leather satchel “the sac” bag and thong sandals in pink patent leather.
Z wore a super cool adjustable helmet with visor, I talk about this amazing find here (it is made for tiny infant heads ad is fully adjustable!).
