Bike Ride to Santa Monica
Santa Monica, CA

One of my favorite things about living in LA, is how easy it is to be active and outside!  I love living in Venice because I’m 3 blocks from the beach and can ride my bike along the boardwalk to Santa Monica.  The guys at Solé Bicycles were sweet enough to outfit me with my very own black beach cruiser + wicker basket.  What I love about Solé is that it was started by a group of friends in college who couldn’t find an affordable beach cruiser for school so they created a single speed cruiser at a fraction of the cost of other cruisers.  Their bikes are amazing quality and come in a variety of different colors – plus they’re based in Venice!  If you’re visiting the area, I highly recommend renting a bike in Venice, grabbing a drink at the rooftop at Hotel Erwin, and then biking to Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica for lunch or dinner.  It’s about a 30 minute ride one way and is perfect for people watching!  I scooped up this off the shoulder dress at Nordstrom a few weeks back and have been wearing it day and night.  I’m a bit obsessed with everything off the shoulder right now if you can’t already tell (it’s just such a flattering style.)  Shop my entire look below!

    Beautiful outfit! Just curious about how you ride your bike wearing a dress, I tried it before and I had such a tough time with it <3

    I completely agree with that first statement. Moving from New York to Tennessee, I love that I can be outside all the time. My skin and allergies have seriously subsided! Not to mention, outfits can become a lot breezier and easier, like the one you featured here.

    Sincerely,

    Camille
