What to wear: Cheering for Floyd

What to wear: Cheering for Floyd

Floyd Landis is an amazing bike rider who has dominated this year’s Tour de France despite a terrible hip injury that will require him to have a replacement once the race is done. (I have a hip problem that is 550% less severe but is still a constant nuisance. I can’t even imagine how much pain he must be in). After falling far behind, he had a miraculous day yesterday and has a good chance of winning the tour this weekend.

I’m not much of a bike fan and I am certainly not one to wear a green and yellow spandex outfit to support my favorite racer, instead here’s my own “Cheering for Floyd” outfit:

  • Jeans – I do wear jeans once in a while.
  • Cashmere sweater – 50% off on italian cashmere from J. Crew!
  • Wedges – Adds a bit of yellow to the mix.
  • Messenger bag – A Timbuk2 bag is classic bike chic.
  • Belt – Matches the yellow shoes.
  • Jade bracelet – A chinatown favorite. Combines both yellow and green.

Go Floyd! I won’t be watching the Tour this weekend because we’re camping in Tahoe with Nicole. But I will be keeping my fingers crossed for Floyd!

    cute outfit, i have that bag in a different color 🙂

    although it was way to hot to wear jeans and a sweater on the course today!

    The real drama is going to be tomorrow, if he can pull ahead in the individual time trial. He is usually great at them.. but we’ll see! I hope so!
