This past weekend, my parents and I went to the Cape for a biking-relaxation mini vacation. This trip actually came just after a long-weekend getaway with my roomates to Maine--full posts on both of these amazing trips will be coming soon!
After biking just outside Provincetown, my parents and I decided to explore the town itself. Despite going to the Cape my whole life (my grandparents live there), I've actually never been to the town at the end of the penninsula! I knew I wanted to look halfway decent, despite having biked a rather hill-filled, windy trail in the morning.

// Use a statement piece. An eye-catching dress (or shirt or pants) will draw other's eyes away from your more-messy-than-usual hair or your general state of exhaustion after a day of hard exercise. Statement clothing items also help you avoid needing jewlery to make an outfit more interesting.
// Keep it comfy and simple. In this sense I did fail a little bit--if I were smart, I would have brought a dress or skirt to change into, like my mother did (and I have two Peter Pilotto for Target dresses, too!). Still, I planned for the weather, and the pants were great once the sun set. The flip flops were just a practical choice, which allowed me to both walk easily and stick my feet in the ocean.
// Pay attention to detail. Little things--like fresh deodorant, bright lipstick, and making sure your clothes are a material that won't wrinkle--go a long way during a quick change.

Have you ever had to change outfits drastically on the go before? What do you suggest to make it easier?
