This past weekend I headed to Jamaica State Park in Vermont for some camping! Originally my boyfriend and I were going to go for our 1 year anniversary in July but my parents planned a family vacation to Rhode Island so we changed our plans. We changed our dates to match up with when my Aunt & Uncle were going with my cousin and youngest and then my other brother tagged along as well! We've been going to this campground since I was 9 or 10 so it's one of my favorite vacation spots.

If you're within a few hours of it, Jamaica State Park is a nice cheap option for a weekend (or longer) trip! The trip was just over $100 and we divided that by 4 people, so super affordable! I call it half-glamping because they do have bathrooms and showers - you pay for hot water. I don't usually shower while we're there because I like to live dangerously (or swim in the river.)

The trip was full of hiking, (illegally) feeding chipmunks, sitting by the fire, eating smores and grilling up tasty food! We also spent one morning in Weston, Vermont to go to my favorite store. More on that tomorrow!  Here are some photos from the trip!

Can you see the Big Dipper?!!!

Last week we took advantage of the beautiful sunset for these outfit photos. The light is so pretty it was hard to narrow down photos! Gotta love a photographer who isn't my dad, now I don't feel bad about dragging him all over for photos. Luckily we go to the same place for walks every day and it has ample photo spots. Plus he likes taking them. Hopefully I'll be seeing some more great sunsets this weekend while I'm off camping in Vermont!

Also, this top may be one of my best cheap thrifts ever. I got it for $1. I don't wear it as often as I used to but it's so soft and easy to wear. It also doesn't make me overheat even on warmer days.

Another Thursday, another throwback! Sadly I don't have the pants from the original anymore. I can't remember why I got rid of them. They must have gotten extra wrinkly. So sad.  I added in the bag because it pulls out the blue in the top really nicely.  Plus it makes the look a little less green.

The original:

We've still had a few chilly days here and there so I've been able to wear some of my lighter, non-full sleeve sweaters. I wasn't in the mood to wear all of my rings on this day so I wore one that was passed down from my paternal Grandmother. It's a really intricate ring with 4 opals and a tiny ruby in the middle. I don't wear it too often because a) it doesn't go with the rest of my rings since it's gold and b) I'm afraid to lose or chip it.

Happy Monday! Today marks the return of my favorite sandals to the blog - my Lanvin studded suede sandals! I'm still searching for another pair (size 38 or 38.5) for when these eventually get worn out but I've only found a 37.5 in the past couple weeks. I loved them enough to dedicate a post to them in February 2016 when they first appeared on Net-a-Porter for $795 (I think) but didn't buy them until they were added to the Summer End of Season Sale that July - which is going on right now! I scooped them up for $316, still pricey but totally worth it in my opinion!

These shoes are one of my favorite Net-a-Porter sale buys. I always find great pieces during the sales for a fraction of the retail price. Normally I wait for the end of the sale but I knew these would sell out so I bought them the first day in 2013. It's a good thing I did because they sold out that afternoon. This season's Net-a-Porter sale started a couple weeks and I've been trying to resist because I just haaaad to go and buy a house, ha ha. (I do have some advertising money in PayPal if I lose my self control or find something amazing.)
