Blue flip-flops everywhere...


Blogger Lucas Jones said ... (9:47 AM) : 

That bike is perfect!


Blogger Rachel @ The Haute Notes said ... (9:49 AM) : 

Such a great dress! I love the colors.


Blogger Oh Dear Charlotte said ... (9:53 AM) : 

come back to aus!!!!


Blogger miss sophie said ... (9:57 AM) : 

what a cool tie-dye/batiky print! minus the flip-flops, that's probably the perfect biking outfit for a hot, sticky day...


Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (10:01 AM) : 

Yes. Love the bright toenails agains the blue flip-flops. Her handbag seems to be a Bottega Veneta- it very subtly lets you know she is roughing it but she may not have to. Jorge from WPB

She looks lovely!!!!

Blogger Hawa said ... (10:06 AM) : 

so personal and so carefree....sometimes you dont need fashionable clothing to be stylish....just need to be yourself!


Blogger Cristi Silva said ... (10:08 AM) : 

Love how relaxed she is! cute!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:09 AM) : 

what a perfect dress for a lazy day.


Blogger Rafe New York said ... (10:12 AM) : 

Love the print on that dress! Easy breezy!


Anonymous Elaine said ... (10:30 AM) : 

She's gorgeous! Love her stance, pony tail and bangs, white skin, the red in the background (the stop light, reflection in the window, and on the sidewalk) and the scaffolding!


Blogger Intrinsically Florrie said ... (10:40 AM) : 

What a lovely little dress.
Plus I love the colours of the footwear and (toe)nailpolish with it.

I really hate flip-flops, always have.


Blogger hc said ... (11:00 AM) : 

perfect cut of the dress where the front rides slightly higher, yet still possesses an unintentional quality.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:16 AM) : 

great legs. where are her pants or shorts or something?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:44 AM) : 

I think that's my friend horsey. She's an all-around fantastic lady.


Blogger Julia said ... (11:48 AM) : 

There's somthing magical about a fashionable girl riding an old fashioned bike!


Anonymous CWR said ... (11:49 AM) : 

This outfit is brutal.
I can barely look at it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:08 PM) : 

Love this! It's such an easy outfit yet it still looks very stylish!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:58 PM) : 

Not loving the flip flops here, I personally feel a pump would've gone better.


Blogger noura. said ... (1:24 PM) : 

ahhh if only i could go about my day on a bike.
i'd be such a happy girl.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:38 PM) : 

I'm dissapointed by her shoes...the flip-flops make the look plain..altough I like her nail polish :-)


Anonymous Margo said ... (1:59 PM) : 

i'm surprised this is stylish in your opinion.
at least she looks cool on a hot day. i really don't care for the look - liked the one of the girl with the dog a few pictures back. her dress and sandals are similar colors but WAY more chic.


Anonymous Macy said ... (2:24 PM) : 

Fantastic! Good to know that it's Summer SOMEWHERE


Blogger JMitchell said ... (2:34 PM) : 

i love everything except the shoes. she looks great and i'm obsessed with the bike and dress!


Blogger Melanie Balakit said ... (2:40 PM) : 

cute outfit...but not functional at all, esp. b/c she's riding a bike!


Blogger Unknown said ... (2:47 PM) : 

I'm the odd one out here but I don't like it. Her ponytail is messy and when she carries her bottega bag I think it's too heavy for her look. The dress is a little boxy for me, too. Love the photo though.


Blogger Alvin Kevin Nanong said ... (2:59 PM) : 

i love the flip flops.


Anonymous Taylor said ... (3:25 PM) : 

Such a simple, lovely summer getup. There are some really great ones featured on today... I'll miss sunny days.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:31 PM) : 

very cute dress. I need a bike like that!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:35 PM) : 

I'm surprised no one has commented on the inadvisability of not wearing a helmet and using headphones while riding one's bike. Especially in city traffic.


Blogger teresa said ... (3:38 PM) : 

I can't believe someone suggested she wear pumps with this.


Blogger crowsfeet said ... (3:50 PM) : 

Sometimes the most random ingredients combine to make the most delightful recipe!


Blogger JenniS said ... (4:26 PM) : 

This is the kind of shot which makes me long for summer...not too long till we in NZ get to bare our feet and shoulders. Loved the shot recently of a gal in a similar colour - must be the season of eye popping blues, which makes me very happy indeed


Blogger Unknown said ... (4:56 PM) : 



Anonymous patricia said ... (5:19 PM) : 

Like her Bike, i want one!


Blogger Pat & Reg said ... (5:28 PM) : 

I'm amazed at how many people on your site hate flip flops. They are de rigueur here in San Diego and So. California. I see outfits like this every day and I think she's very stylish. Now I know why people in Chicago kept asking me why I was wearing my bath shoes out in public.


Blogger Unknown said ... (5:39 PM) : 

Sorry, but you just stumbled on one of my big no-nos..........flip-flops outside of the beach.


Anonymous downunderboy said ... (6:51 PM) : 

Sorry - you've lost me on this one.
I love the flip-flops (or 'thongs' as we call them here in Oz) but the dress looks kinda cheap to me.
However, that said - i do like the colours in the print. It's just the combination of print and shape that doesn't really grab.

Also - I agree with Dear Charlotte - come back to Oz!!! And quickly!!


Blogger Magdalena said ... (7:07 PM) : 

Great dress! Hippy hippy shake :)


Blogger JenniS said ... (7:09 PM) : 

Oo no - flip flops, jandals, thongs, whatever you like to call them make everything look effortless, surely the definition of stylish in summer?


Blogger Nadine Lozano said ... (7:37 PM) : 

I like the photo but not the outfit. I'd buy one of those antique-looking bikes, though.


Blogger kahartland said ... (8:48 PM) : 

its good....not very creative. but i admire anyone who can ride a bike in a dress :)


Blogger Brittany said ... (9:03 PM) : 

Love it!


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:13 PM) : 

why flip-flops? why do people wear such ugly, noisy things on their feet?
i hate it!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:20 PM) : 

I love wearing dresses and riding bikes while listening to music.
I just know she's happy!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:29 PM) : 

She doth look very plain.


Blogger DENNI said ... (10:51 PM) : 




Blogger bdub u said ... (10:58 PM) : 

Second flip flop in as many days. It just doesn't seem sartorial to me.


Anonymous kookaii said ... (2:15 AM) : 

she looks like she's beautiful, but the fashion or the style - it's nothing outstanding nor arresting.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:08 AM) : 

Nah...I don't like it.


Anonymous Emma Howard said ... (3:10 AM) : 

Blue slippers,any color slippers, are never out of place in the heat! So nice with her flirty dress too.

President Obama and family are generating new attention/interest in Hawaiian Island style clothing.


Blogger Unknown said ... (4:58 AM) : 

love the colours of this dress x


Anonymous Buy Wow Gold said ... (5:36 AM) : 

Nice Images. I liked it.


Blogger Gwen said ... (7:16 AM) : 

Dress has nice print and coloring, like the classic bike design.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:32 AM) : 

here the flip flops look pretty. They're a fresh pair. Her toes are a happy summer color.

She might be wearing them because she clearly hurt her left foot. Hope she feels better


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:35 AM) : 

I like the shape and form of the dress, but not feeling the print. It reminds me of a bad Hawiian shirt. Cute gal though!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:57 AM) : 

i don't get it. why do people oppose the flip-flop? most everyone has them, they are like blue jeans- common, standard, understood.


Blogger Catherine said ... (1:16 PM) : 

Flip-flops are essential in NYC. I always keep a pair in my bag and they have saved many a pair of expensive shoes from destructive subway grates, cobblestones, and rain. New Yorkers walk several miles a day and even in the most broken in pumps you can end up with blisters and sore feet. The people who are opposed to flip-flops must live in places where walking is uncommon— or they get chauffeured everywhere. Flip-flops are practical and comfortable. Great photo.


Anonymous Emily said ... (1:26 PM) : 

Some people that comment on your blog are so high and mighty. It saddens me. I think she looks cute and fresh, and anything that keeps one cool in the heat we've had in NYC lately is ok by me.

I also like her bike. And wish she had a helmet to add to her outfit


Blogger Olivia said ... (7:16 PM) : 

I agree with Catherine! I live in Paris, and walk hours and hours every day. Besides that we just had a few weeks hot weather, and I don't understand why I should destroy my favorite pumps or high heels, and hardly suffer with (or without) blisters.

Ok, flip-flop aren't the most beautiful thing in the world (every day I see so many tourists in Paris, wearing awfully over-worn plastic thongs) but actually, I believe this young lady didn't guess that morning, that she would have been taken on picture and put on an international fashion blog... so that isn't that drammatic.

Let's say the truth: when you go downstairs, hot summer weather, just to buy some bread, do you really wear high heels?
If so, that would be ridiculous in my eyes.

I think, this lady is beautiful, and she looks elegant because of her "non-chalence" and simplicity.


Blogger redcatbiker said ... (8:22 PM) : 

Catherine said:

Regardless of what one thinks of flip-flops being stylish, or not, they are most definitely not a walking shoe.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:33 AM) : 

I really don't get it...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:14 AM) : 

Yeah why would she wear flips flops?

Because knee high slouchy boots in black leather would be much more appropriate on this same 90 degree day right?

Or maybe 6 inch stiletto sandals bedazzled in Swarovski crystals would be better to bike with?

She should've just gone with Uggs or mukluks made with alpaca hair. They're much more chic.

(The following was an obvious case of sarcasm)

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:34 AM) : 

the photo is great but i don't like her dress..for me it looks too much like batik..
but i like her nail polish:)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:41 PM) : 

I do like the colors of this dress, but this outfit is completely impractical for bicycling. It would be more appropriate for the beach. She's going to hurt her feet trying to bike in flip flops. Not a wise choice of footwear.


Blogger tee cardaci said ... (3:15 PM) : 

hahahha! This is my favorite ex-girlfriend you H :)

...and all the flip flop haters, get over yourselves. Don't think for a second that she doesn't have a closet full of hot footwear for when the biking is done ;)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:00 PM) : 

bikes and batik... a beautiful one at that. breathes summer, freely...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:05 PM) : 

this is so unlike your great outfits. it's so ordinary like from the mall.


Blogger Unknown said ... (5:54 AM) : 

She is lucky: very pretty. That dress on me would be so cheap. the thing is that when you are young and beautiful you can wear whatever you like... even flip flops!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:11 AM) : 

hi ,

great post. i got here what i was looking for exactly.

add my url


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:55 AM) : 

i like her nail polish... haha! she looks great


Blogger Marie said ... (2:54 PM) : 

I absolutely LOVE this. She seems really casual and as if she put no effort into her outfit. Yet it looks so well put together. I think the bike is what makes it so cool. But I absolutely love the dress.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:13 PM) : 

AM from CA...she could have worn flat moccasins or ballet slippers. Just saying. There is another option. I would have worn flip flops though. Who wants sweaty feet? The people who are so judgemental about flip flops SERIOUSLY need to get over themselves...hmmm, I wonder when the last time you were photographed for your great street style was?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:52 PM) : 

Maybe she just got a pedicure?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:44 PM) : 

why? sometimes i wish there was an explanation.


Anonymous elisabeth said ... (7:51 PM) : 

once again i will say, as the unofficial flip flop queen - i think a lovely dress like this, in fact it could even be a 'fancier' dress, worn with a pair of flip flops is absolute casual perfection.


Blogger The Higher Common Sense said ... (12:42 AM) : 

I do not get this at all. The fact of being a cute girl with a bike is not good enough, there are lots of 'em in NYC. I feel like the post right before this one is the done-right version of this outfit (i.e. the shoes are same color, just as bare but REAL shoes; deliberate but carefree hair; and a flattering dress. Same elements but better).


Anonymous Christine said ... (3:03 AM) : 

I love how simple but great she looks!!!


Anonymous amylola said ... (2:42 PM) : 

i've worn flip-flops in LA for over 40 years. i don't think of them as any different from the strappy leather sandals i have - just a different look and different colors. i am amazed at the disgust for flip-flops here. maybe it's a california/florida thing?

and yeah - flip-flops CAN be walking shoes if you buy the kind that have a shaped sole.


Blogger Cassie Jo - Tofuscloset said ... (9:36 PM) : 

love it!! so cute


Anonymous Liv said ... (12:59 AM) : 

LOVE THE DRESS!!!!!!!!! so much.



Anonymous holly said ... (12:28 PM) : 

Elizabeth I agree with you...I think the flipflops makes the effect of her style that she is intending for her outing


Blogger Katya said ... (7:16 AM) : 

Pretty dress.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:21 PM) : 

I don't like this outfit very much. The dress is incredibly short in the front and I'm not a big fan of flipflops being worn on the street.


Blogger Meg said ... (12:12 PM) : 

i hate the flip flops


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:53 PM) : 

I reckon this girl does yoga. Cycling + yoga = great legs, great attitude... The clothes are superfluous.


Anonymous Baba NYC said ... (10:23 AM) : 

Silence haters! My homegirl H-money here slays 99.9% of ladies on the planet with her steez... and that includes the fashion focused couture enslaved fash-bots that clutter our NYC canyons... it's funny that this is the shot that made it here cause she's goin real easy on you guys with this look. She's just someone that pulls it off and puts it together with natural ease and it never looks like she's trying. So regardless of your stance on flip flops, respect the gangsta of someone who makes it look easy, and somehow sexy at all times.
PS - i've yet to meet an aussie gal with great style... if they exist, please educate!


Blogger Liberitha said ... (10:45 AM) : 

Love that dress!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:45 PM) : 

The dress is cute on its own - paired with the flip flops it seems like a cover up one might throw on at the campground on the way to the bath house. Somehow I can't look at flip flops without thinking of public showers...

its a pretty casual look but i like it

I must say that this picture depicts simplicity yet a lot of impression. Just like what most people say, a picture paints thousand words.
