An outfit featuring a Summer staple and great color combo.  My late Grandmother - Dad's Mom - made this sweater for my Mom a long time ago. She also made one for my 3 aunts. My Mom had two because she asked her to make a second in a white/cream color, she still has that one. I'm so glad she passed this one on to me because it has been something I've reached for very often the past 10+ Summers since she gave it too me. I love it paired with this pair of orange-rusty red shorts. A perfect color combination!

Christian and I are at Disney World this weekend for our anniversary and I thought I would share outfits from our last two trips because somehow I never did blog posts after we got back... whoops! It's also because I was lazy and didn't have Christian take individual outfit photos of what I wore (although we did do videos for a Reel in May!) Shame on me! I guess that means you guys get Disney couples outfits in addition to Disney outfits for women. YAY!

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 hope everyone had who celebrates enjoyed Easter/Passover/Ramadan this past weekend. We had part 1 of our Easter with Mom's side of the family. This Saturday we're doing part 2 with Dad's side. This skirt isn't the most Eastery thing in my closet but my Mom just finished making it a couple weeks before and I wanted to wear it ASAP!

 

Last year, or maybe even longer ago, I had seen someone in a skirt made out of old ties and it must have stuck in my brain. When my Grandpa was getting rid of a bunch of his old ties. I decided to rescue some and turn them into my own version of a tie skirt. My Mom & I googled a couple of guides but in the end we did it our (aka her) way. We cut the skirts to the length I wanted, Mom sewed them together and then used the thin part of one tie as the band. 


Grandpa got a real kick out of seeing the skirt, especially because I used his helicopter ties. He used to work for Sikorsky Aircraft before retiring. Grandma was shocked it came out so good - apparently she didn't have faith in our vision, ha ha!

I finished this post on Monday, so if I've made clothing purchases at Disney they won't appear here until next month! My adventure continues through next week so make sure to follow me on Instagram for Magic Kingdom 50th Anniversary fun!


I was doing pretty well this year and not making too many purchases. But at the beginning of the month Old Navy had a big sale on their clearance items so I stocked up on some things for Christian and of course had to take a "quick look" for myself and ended up with a few things. But I only spent $23 and got 5 pieces! Unfortunately I don't think I'll be ordering from Old Navy online again. Had some issues and ended up with 2 of the exact same order so I had to go through the hassle of returning a whole order. UGH!

I've always enjoyed this color combo. Green and purple make such a great pair but I don't see them put together that often. Forgive the wrinkles on the sweater, didn't have time to iron it, haha! It's finally staying light enough for me to take outfit pictures when I go to my parents for dinner. So much better than having to do multiple outfits over the weekends.

The original:
I went on a quick trip to Florida at the end of last week. I wanted to go to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party this year and this was the perfect time to do it. So Wednesday afternoon a friend and I flew into Orlando (yay for Southwest rewards points.) We stayed with some friends and I worked from their place on Thursday until about 5 when theme park madness started. We came home late Saturday night. But Wednesday night was spent at Disney Springs where we walked around, had some dinner and saw their Disney themed Christmas trees.

Happy Thursday! Not really much to say about this outfit. I wore it on a particularly cloudy day so the bright red sweater made the day a little happier.

The Original:
This month's wardrobe update is coming a few days early because I'm off to Aruba today and taking a break from blogging while I'm gone! My goal for July was to not spend any money on clothes since I went a little overboard on entertainment purchases last month. Sadly I failed.

I bought a bathing suit from Old Navy with a gift card, so I didn't break my no spending rule there. What got me was Net-a-Porter's End of Season sale. I almost made it through because the one thing I really wanted (Lanvin sandals I posted here in February) had sold out. But then in the last week of the sale one pair came back in stock in my size and it was an extra 20% off so I pounced. Bye bye $316 and my well-behaved month.
