We are going camping this weekend. At 8 and a half months pregnant, and as swollen as a whale, I'm not going to even try to create style outfits for myself. The most important thing I am worrying about is staying comfortable and cool from the sun. But a girl can dream can't she? So if you are planning a night in the woods anytime soon, here is a top tip for you when packing your duffel bag. Do not bring anything expensive. Every piece in these three ensembles is $50 or less. You will ruin your shoes, you will drop and crack your sunglasses, you will tear that dress. Ok change will to might. But it's better to be safe than sorry. Luckily there are plenty of ways to dress in style for bottom price these days. Here are my three picks when pitching that tent.
Army green always looks goods in the woods and this dress is perfect for ruffing it through branches and mud. The yummy striped cardigan will keep you warm by the fire and the floral head scarf will get your hair out of the way when you toss that fishing rod. A good solid backpack you can toss on your back and on the ground is key. Keep the jewelry minimal. This leather bracelet adds character to your true stylista but fits in with the surroundings. Finish off with a solid ankle boot that will let you trudge carefully.
I love a denim skirt when camping. This one is better off if you are going to be chilling out more than actually exploring the terrain. If you will be doing a little hiking, go for a flared one instead. You can never go wrong with a plaid shirt and this parka gets you style points while being practical. Accessorize with these fun arrow earrings and pair of no mess aviators.
High top sneakers are so comfortable and if they get grimy, toss them in the wash when you get back home. And finally, add a little pop of color with this durable backpack.
For the girly girl at heart, don't leave your floral dress at home. Blossom in the woods but pick a piece made of a light weight and breathable fabric. Throw on a good denim vest for good measure. Pull out your galoshes to keep your legs scratch free. The hat will keep your face sun free as well as these fun flower child worthy sunglasses. Some easy and fun layering necklaces and a Aztec print backpack proves you can play in the woods and look good too.
