    Love, love, love her plaid dress. The simple shape, the colors – just perfect. Wish I could find one like it for myself.

    Love the muted colours in her dress across those neon yellow sneakers, very cool.

    Love the colorful plaid popping from the naturally neutral background. And the neon sneakers just work! I’m wearing milkmaid braids today on my blog too…they’re the best hairstyle for summer heat! Great picture!

    I love the geometry in this shot, of the checkered shirt and the scaffolding behind.

    This is the first I have read of it. How sad to lose something so unique.

    I love everything about her look here … the braid, neon sneakers, plaid, bike – summer perfection.

    Can’t decide which I like better, the bike or the dress. The shoes are fun as well.

    What a sweet dress! This is totally my type of outfit. Basically an overgrown man’s shirt, and love those yellow kicks.

    I live in Paris, and I notice that the most stylish women here also seem to understand that one piece of neon is enough.

  21. Emily Ulrich

    August 9, 2012 at 10:16 am

    What an amazing dress. Even with the limelight yellow of the sneakers and the colors of the dress, there’s a relaxed softness to her outfit. Very well played.

    And her bike even matches her hair. Points for impressiveness.

  22. Jupe

    August 9, 2012 at 10:18 am

    I really love that bike…really love it! Such a great vintage aesthetic, just like her dress…also liking that the dress, bike, and hairstyle have this subtle menswear appeal…and yet biking in a dress is so female.

    Oh, she won me with that lemon-shoes :) Very fresh :)

    It all works so well together; the simple braid, the soft colours of her dress and the bright, neon yellow shoes. She looks as though she has a busy day of errands ahead of her, maybe lunch with friends. She does this with understated style. Great bike too..

    Clean dress,clean shoes,clean bike…Beautiful colours!

    I love this, it’s probably one of my most favorites. It’s like my style but in technicolor.

    I like how the simplicity of the dress works with the vivid neon colored shoe… also the ombre effect on her braided hair!

    This young woman shows that she can be stylish and comfy at the same time. This fabric print is called “Madras antillais” in Europe.
    I love the bright canvas shoes instead of the usual flip-flops.

    So many looks with bikes. I feel inspired to get up and out! I do like the braid. Need to learn who to do it. Sneakers are fun.

    I’m so loving this plaid shift dress…even if it’s paired with neon green Kids. (What was with all those Olympian sprinters in matching neon sneakers? That was a bit unsettling.) Anyhow great look, right down to the pinned up braids.

    Love her dress!

    August 9, 2012 at 2:54 pm

    I like the pop of color from the shoes! It inspired me to wear a neon pair of sneakers to brighten up any dull outfit. Love it :)

    Simple silhouette, but the pattern and pocket details makes it so much more than that!

    love the contrast of colors and patterns… her outfit stands out from the cold and common background!

    Girls who pull off that hair on a day-to-day, casual basis make me so jealous.
    She looks so effortless!

    That’s a very successful look this girl has on. The dress is very joyful and fits her like a glove!


    August 10, 2012 at 4:34 am

    Asian Girls have amazing style! It seems they can never get an outfit work.I like the way she picked out a plaid colour in her shirt to select a shoe , thats a fundamental fashion tip right there .

    The dress is cute, whatever, I don’t care, but that bike, my GOD that bike! WHY don’t we have bikes like that in LA? You go to the bike stores here and all they have are ugly cruisers with flowers on them and bike for athletes, which I am not. That bike is a bike for fashionable ladies. Fashionable ladies like myself.

      Hi Kari,

      I ride a linus and love it. You’ll be happy to hear that they’re an LA-based brand. Check out their store on Abbot Kinney in Venice.

    Im most fascinated by that not tight, not like a sheath, but perfect fit of the dress. I don’t even know what to call it… Not tight, not lose, not fitted, just right.

    This outfit wouldn’t be the same without the vans, i think every outfit should have one thing that sticks out to give it personality! I am insanely jealous of that bike, its beautiful
