Vacation Style


 Hi all! Quite a long time has passed since I last wrote a post. I have a good excuse though; I was on vacation! Last week, my parents and I spent four nights out of town, staying next door to some friends in their guest house in a little town in the woods. Let me share with you a few outfits from my June getaway. :)


   This was the outfit that I wore on the first day of our trip. Because the weather was going to be warm, I wanted to wear as skirt that didn't need leggings. My new pleated khaki skirt did the trick. A striped t-shirt and new striped shoes gave the outfit a cuteness factor, while keeping me in cool clothes that did not require layering.


   On the third day of our vacation we went on a beautiful hike to a lake. Because we were hiking, I wore pants. The pair I have on actually are borrowed from Mom! The legs are rolled up partly because they are too long, and partly to give them a more chic look. A graphic tee and silver necklace made the outfit a little more stylish. My brown Converse are there because they were the only shoes I packed for hiking in. ;)


   I spent the fourth day of being out of town relaxing. It felt good to just sit by the creek and read for a while, not having anything pressing that I must do. I wore my new turquoise t-shirt, the khaki skirt, and gold punch-work sandals. An aqua scarf in my hair gave me an extra touch of style, and made me feel just a bit 1960's. 



   I must admit that I got a bit shutter happy on our trip. What can I say? Throw a girl and her little red DSLR into a beautiful wilderness area, and you get a lot of photos! 
   It was relaxing to have a few days of escape in the great outdoors. After coming home, we literally went immediately back to our busy lives. Though the thought of putting together this blog post was a little overwhelming at first, now that I'm to the end of it I feel back in the swing of things! 
  So, tell me, how was your past week? I love to hear from my blogging friends, and enjoy it when a reader drops me a line. Hope to hear from you soon. :)
