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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

I was feeling a little under the weather on this day so it was all about the layers! I wore a thin turtleneck under my chunky sweater and leggings under my jeans plus some thick socks. Not the most fashionable, but definitely functional, which is why I decided to share the photos even though it may not look the chicest.

This sweater is one of my favorites, especially when I remember how I came to own it. My long time blog friend Jamie (who I was able to meet in person in 2011 - embarrassing blog post alert) wore it on her blog way back in 2013. I commented with how much I loved it but sadly it was too expensive for me to buy, especially when factoring in shipping from Australia. But then, in July 2014, she decided to sell it on her blog shop so I swooped in and grabbed it! So now it's having it's second life here in the States with me.

Sweater: Witchery cable-knit sweater,  Jeans: IRO "Faxy Cropped Jean" (Gilt c/o Wikibuy), Loafers: Burberry Prorsum animal-print calf hair slipper (Net-a-Porter), Bag: Chanel Classic 2.55 Double Flap (Madison Avenue Couture), Sunglasses: Michael Kors (Marshalls)

This dress is perfect for scorching hot days when I want to wear more than just short shorts and a tank top. The knit is so thin that it's like I'm wearing a cloud.

Striped Knit Dress: Lauren Ralph Lauren (Lord & Taylor), Sandals: Ancient Greek Sandals 'Clio', Bag: Tommy Hilfiger c/o Clinton Crossing, Sunglasses: Michael Kors (Marshalls)

I love these sandals. They were the first pair of Ancient Greek Sandals I bought back in 2013 when they only had about 5 styles. Now there are TONS to choose from. I have 6 pairs and would kill to have more. I usually buy a new pair each year but I'm trying to resist this year. Perhaps if I find a pair on sale!

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!

Cardigan: Max Studio (gift), Floral Tiered Top: Michael Kors, Corduroy Pants: Abercrombie & Fitch,  Studded Suede Sandals: Lanvin (Net-a-Porter Sale), Necklace: Acanthus Jewelry 'Gemma' (giveaway win), Sunglasses: Chanel

I wore this outfit almost exactly 6 years ago. Crazy how time flies! Sadly I don't have the pants anymore because the quality just wasn't there (they were from ASOS.) I also got rid of the Missoni for Target flats because they didn't fit quite right. But the general look is still intact! Fortunately I found a bunch of this exact sweater on eBay if you like it!
