Somehow I never got around to posting these few outfit photos I took for a brand partnership with Aetrex on Instagram. Whoops! Only a few photos but the outfit still deserve a post, right?! It's the perfect simple look for early autumn days when it's still warm-ish but there's a chill in the air.

 

Tee: Madewell Whisper Cotton V-Neck Tee in Spiced Plum

Jeans: Everlane high-rise skinny jean in mid-blue

Bag: Madewell Medium Slim Saddle Bag in Croc c/o Shopbop

Shoes: Aetrex Libby Comfort Clog in Tobacco suede

Necklace: Acanthus Jewelry



 

Another successful month of no shopping! All I added to my closet was a pair of Aetrex clogs gifted from the brand in exchange for an Instagram post. My birthday is next month, so maybe I'll splurge on something fun. There are only a few things on my list at the moment so we'll see if I take the plunge on anything.

How are we halfway though the year/Summer already?! I made it through another month not spending money on clothes. I did get a new pair of sandals as part of a partnership with Aetrex, check out this post see what I wore it with on our camping trip earlier this month.


I don't really have much on my shopping list these days, apart from the teal Gucci Marmont bag I've wanted for quite a few years now. But It's probably going to wait a few more years before I finally get it. With work being a little slower than usual it's hard to justify spending around $1000 on a bag. I WILL get it eventually, though! 

 

Just because there's nothing on my list of wants it doesn't mean I don't window shop. I still constantly check secondhand sites in case something amazing pops up, but so far I've resisted any temptation. Anyone else just shop for the fun of it and not really intend on buying anything?

Earlier this month we went our our annual camping trip that I've been going on since I was about 7. There were a bunch of years during High School that I didn't go and during College but after that I went with my friends a few years and then Christian and I started going together with my Aunt & Uncle. The past couple years my parents and siblings joined back in too. So it's nice to keep the tradition going! 

 

I shared some of these outfits on Instagram yesterday as part of a partnership with Aetrex, but figured I should share all the outfits photos I have. Camping is obviously not a fashionable vacation so these are super comfortable casual looks.

 

Also turning this into a mini travel guide of sorts since I'll chat about the activities we took part in on our long weekend.

Shopping Outfit: Wore this for our morning trek over to The Vermont Country Store in Weston, VT.  A must-do on every trip. We arrived and had lunch at Mildred's Grill, shopped at the Vermont Country Store and then walked across the street to browse the Weston Village Christmas Shop and Weston Village Country Store. Then it was back to the campground!

Romper: Greylin 'Osten' Romper (Gilt), Bag: Etienne Aigner (thrifted), Sandals: Aetrex 'Janey Sport Slide' (gifted)


An Evening Walk: One evening we took a little stroll outside the campground to Jamaica Village and did a quick walk around the block. We didn't want to get bit up by mosquitos so we changed to jeans, ha ha. The village has a small grocery store, yoga studio and a couple galleries.

Tee: A New Day (Target), Jeans: Michael by Michael Kors, Sneakers: Ryka "Belong" Walking Shoe in Plum Red/Burgundy (DSW)

 

Swimming at Salmon Hole: The swimming at West River was a little crowded the weekend we went, it was the 4th of July, so we didn't actually do any swimming but I did take a morning walk along the river and stuck my toes in. Can't go camping here without at least touching the water! Back in the day there used to be a spot a little up river where the rocks were placed in such a way that if you sat in the right spot you'd have little waterfalls giving you a nice back massage.

Bathing Suit: All in Motion Zip-Front Racerback Laser Cut Back One-Piece in Black Floral (Target), Jean Shorts: Madewell, Sandals: Aetrex 'Janey Sport Slide' (gifted), Sunglasses: Ray Ban 'Erika' c/o Shopbop

 

Hiking up to The Overlook: No trip is complete without a hike on the Overlook Trail. There are two ways to get up here, we usually take the shorter route that has a bit more rock climbing involved and usually takes a half hour. There is a longer trail that has a more gradual uphill walk as well. The campground has other trails but I'm usually too lazy to do the longer ones these days. My new sneakers were very comfy and perfect for the hike.

 

Fun Fact: This is where Christian proposed to me in 2018, after I was attacked by mosquitos the whole way up, ha ha.

Hanging at the Campsite:  Our main activity over the weekend was just hanging out at our campsites, chatting, enjoying a fire and eating too much food. I hate getting bug bites on my feet so I sport the super fashionable "socks with sandals" that I would be embarrassed to be seen in outside of camping, ha ha. I also wore this to the Newfane Flea Market where Christian and I splurged on some delicious sausages from A Crooked Barn Charcuterie. Going to have to buy more next time we're in VT, unless the owner adds online shopping before then!

 

Top: Fabletics 'Savannah Top' (old) Shorts: Old Navy 'High-Waisted Textured Twill Shorts' in Copper Moon, Sandals: Aetrex 'Janey Sport Slide' (gifted), Sunglasses: Ray Ban 'Erika' c/o Shopbop, Socks: Target

Drive Home & Stop at Retreat Farm: On our drive home we decided to finally stop at Retreat Farm after saying "we should stop here" every other year. Christian bought a bunch of cheese at Grafton Village Cheese before we walked the grounds of the farm and said "hi!" to various animals including a HUGE bull named Carlos. We were there on the Fourth of July so it was not crowded at all, just how I like my activities! Before leaving we grabbed some strawberry and lemon gelato made with local ingredients.
