Impractical Camping

Date worn: June 18, 2010
On the calendar: Work from home then camping trip, with a stop for dinner along the way.

I know what you're thinking... this outfit is not exactly practical for camping.  You're right, but our plan was to get to the campsite late so we can enjoy a relaxing dinner in New Paltz, NY.  If you ever have chance, go walk around this cute little town and check out the Gilded Otter Brewpub... their summer blueberry beer is yummy!  But anyway, I figured that since we wouldn't start truly camping until 10pm, I could look cute up until that point :)

Ignore funny smirk and shaggy fringe.  Focus on cute hat!  This was a spontaneous purchase but I think it will serve me well this summer.

Soooo did anyone else get fooled into buying these sandals from Urban Outfitters last year??  In the store, they were the perfect casual sandal.  Out of the store, the backs just did not stay up as you walked around.  Very frustrating.  I remedied the situation by braiding fabric scraps and then tied Grecian style around my ankles.  Works pretty well!

Finally, I wanted to point out my most favorite bracelet ever.  My husband, who knows my style so well, found this for me as a Christmas gift a few years ago.  It's wood with inlaid turquoise and just looks amazing.  I just searched for the website that he bought it from, but unfortunately the woodworker, Greg Savage, has moved onto sculptures, bowls, etc.  Interesting work nonetheless!
