Shortly after the end of the 2015 Tour de France, it was announced the 2016 edition would begin at Mont-Saint-Michel. At that moment, I knew I had to go.
Although I had been watching cycling on and off since the time of the Lance Armstrong era, I had been avidly following it the past few years. Of course, since I had taken up road cycling also in the past few years, albeit on a casual level, that also helped my appreciation for the sport grow.
If that wasn't reason enough, the icing on the cake was the mere fact I would get to go back to France, which is one of my favorite destinations - the culture, the food, the people.
Although I could go on and on about the trip itself, watching the Tour was much more than a bike race, as it reinforced some important lessons. It emphasized:
Lastly, and most importantly, this entire Tour de France 2016 experience reinforced the importance of simplicity. Especially as I live in Manhattan, it's easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of life. Yet, when it's just you, your bike and what seems to be an unending mountain climb ahead of you, life becomes a whole lot simpler.
Vive la France and Vive le Tour!
P.S. When traveling, do not forget your easy to pack, easy to wear and easy to style Adea Camisoles!

I have always been intrigued by the actress/model/director, Chloë Sevigny because she’s an independent spirit who follows her own path. I mean this in a good way. Back a bit, I read that she had just earned a nice chunk of change so she treated her friends to a stay at the GoldenEye resort on the island of Jamaica.
I’m always on the prowl for fascinating females doing unusual things so I was stopped in my tracks by an article that appeared in the New York Post on Monday, September 23, 2019.
You and your family came to Manhattan for the holidays, but you’re having so much fun you decide to stay longer. After the tree at Rock Center, the windows on Fifth and the Met what else is there? You’re in “The City That Never Sleeps” so there are lots more goodies for you and yours to take in.
We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
