Colorado and I have some relationship issues when it comes to winter. Meaning I hate it. But when summer rolls around and the trees are green and the jackets are shoved away in the closet, our love can blossom again. Summer makes life more fun. Sunshine, tan lines, backyard BBQs, cocktails, patios, bike rides…well those are just a handful of my favorite things that summer brings in.

I keep planning to put together a list of my favorite things to do in Denver and I WILL do it soon, but I thought I would show you just one of the best parts of Denver in the summer: the B-Cycle. Denver is such a walkable city nowadays because so many cool restaurants and communities are being created close together as more people move in. BUT riding a bike is just more fun and it’s WAY faster than walking, which is pretty much needed when it decides to hit 100 degrees F outside. With B-Cycle, you can rent a bike all over the city for an hour, half a day or even a full day and check it back in at a different B-Cycle station, which keep popping up all over the city! So you can take it to work, take it to happy hour or just ride it around town. And they are super comfy and have a basket, so it’s a bit hard to part with after you’re become best friends with it throughout the day.

Since the weather has been absolute perfection in Colorado lately, I’ve been wearing more and more dresses, no matter the occasion. This perfectly fitted white denim dress is my favorite summer dress so far! It fits just right in all the right places! It zips up in the back and cinches at the waist, but it still has room in the hips AND it has pockets to throw your phone in while you’re biking to the next brunch spot on a Sunday! I find that summer dresses are just way more comfortable to wear than shorts because they are so breathable and don’t ride up while you’re walking OR biking! This fit is so dang cute for summer and I found a ton of look-a-likes that I’m linking below! Plus my other favorite summer dresses that make it easy to figure out what you’re going to wear that day!

I also love wearing sneakers whenever I’m biking around town. Because I’m clumsy AF. If I’m on a bike, I will somehow ALWAYS stub a toe, so I have to think ahead. Which means my closet is filled with a good amount of sneakers for both workouts and lazy Sundays. These pink satin platform sneakers not only keep you from stubbing your toe while being super awkward on a bike ride, but they also give you a little glow to your look! And the come in black, if you’re not much of a pink kind of gal!

But in the meantime, if you stop in Denver, hop on a B-Cycle and just start peddling around town!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Ahhh I love Colorado. I was able to visit last fall while in the US just before it was freezing. A much needed escape from snowy Beijing. Tried the tasting menu at The Populist which was perfect! Love the sneeks and dress combo too <3
