One of the great things about living in Sacramento is how close we are to so many amazing camping spots. We are a short drive to all types of camping destinations. From glamping in Tahoe, to beach side overnight stays at Bodega Bay, or hiking in Yosmite, the possibilities are near endless. To celebrate a favorite past time we are sharing some of our camping inspired looks!
What better way to celebrate the summer season other than by going on a camping trip?! Camping is my absolute favorite and I always have the greatest times being outdoors with my friends! But as with any other event we partake in our outfits are a huge part!
I of course wanted to wear an outfit that was still stylish but was able to be comfy during all the camping activities. I went with a real basic look; a dark gray tank top and distressed shorts. Both these pieces of clothing are ideal for camping because they are very comfortable and soft making every movement easy.
I topped off my outfit with an over sized red flannel. The flannel is perfect because nights under the stars roasting marshmallows can get a little chilly and it's a great cover up.
I accessorized with a bouton bracelet because it still kept my outfit casual while still adding extra spunk to an ordinary look. I also wore a silver "happy camper" necklace because well.... why not?! Those are the cutest accessories to rock in the outdoors. This whole outfit ideal because I still felt really cute while being comfortable enough to rock it while hiking or lounging around by the fire!
I love being outdoors, hiking and camping, so this week's theme really speaks to me! Who doesn't love a LBD? Pair it with a flannel and you've got the perfect mix of feminine and rugged.
This outfit will be awesome transitioning into fall because you can tie the flannel around your waist during the day and throw it on at night when it gets a little colder. Is anyone tired of seeing me choose black yet!?
I absolutely LOVE these dog earrings! They remind me of my own dog, Emmett, and he loves to go hiking and camping too!
These adorable star necklaces reminded me of camping trips during the summer with my kiddos. I decided to mix metals to give the outfit a little more flare since it's pretty basic. I also added these gorgeous beaded bracelets with gold detailing. They're kinda earthy, and I'm digging it!
I would wear this outfit pretty much anywhere, but change my shoes depending on where I'm going. During the day I'd probably opt for something comfy, like my trusty Birkenstocks. At night I'd probably opt for some funky heels or even my Doc Marten's to add some extra edge.
With the theme of camping in mind, my style is all about comfort and functionality, while being stylish!
I went with a pair of cuffed distressed boyfriend jeans, a knotted black t-shirt, and an oatmeal cardigan. I added a print handkerchief that can be worn around the neck, or as a ponytail holder. I also added a black belt and a gold necklace with black detail.
Add a pair of boots and a hat, and you're ready to roast marshmallows by the fire side, or make a cocktail after setting up camp successfully!
Ah, the great outdoors, there's nothing better than fresh air and no cell service. Trust me I LOVE camping and anything that involves nature but I'm definitely no frumpy camper! Just ask my husband, the guy who has to set up our village sized tepee tent or lug around our kayaks (mines hot pink of course) every where we adventure to. So this week I was super pumped to style an outfit for one of my favorite hobbies, camping! My camping outfits are an exception to the just rolled out of your sleeping bag look and are sure not to disappoint either.
For my camping outfit I chose a moss green dress with a black and white buffalo check flannel shirt over it.This dress is great because its longer in length and has cute buttons that travel all the way down the front, it makes me feel very "Troop Beverly Hills"! It's a soft polyester midi dress that is super light weight and gives you full and free movement and it wont wrinkle up when you pack it, BONUS! I can see myself wearing this dress to the lake, or while on a walk through a wildflower meadow. Add the super soft button down and its perfect for cooking or sitting around the campfire telling ghost stories.
I opted for very few accessories because when your camping less maintenance is always best. You don't want to be uncomfortable or feel restricted, you just want to get going to the next fun adventure or activity. I chose a simple compass necklace which I felt was super appropriate and a star cluster hair clip. I thought the hair clip would look really cute worn when your stargazing at night! And that was the outfit that I created for a stylish but maintenance free camping trip!
Summer and camping go hand in hand. I grew up right next to beautiful lakes and spent weeks every single summer camping with my family and friends. So this weeks theme is a fun little reminder of all those good memories.
Personally when I go camping I want to be as comfortable as possible and don't want to worry if something gets dirty or wet. I want to be able to go swimming in the lake and then throw on clothes that won't get affected. For that reason I chose these cotton shorts and a simple tank top to pair together. The shorts are extremely comfortable and would dry very easily and the tank is a great piece to just throw on and enjoy the rest of your day. I also chose a denim jacket for when the sun starts to set and it gets a little cooler by the water.
To accessorize it I wanted to keep it very simple and easy. I chose a simple scarf and tied it on the end of my braid to give a fun little accent. Just because you're camping doesn't mean you can't be cute! Here's to fun days in the sun and the water.
I'm fortunate enough to live near so many amazing camping spots; however, I've never been camping! I imagine it's great pleasure to reconnect to nature, yourself, and with the company you go with. For my camping outfit I went for a relaxed look since I imagine I would want to be as comfortable as possible!
I paired our light blue chambray top with our new straight leg jeans. The chambray was a great idea because it's 100% cotton and breathable, great for light hiking. The straight leg jeans were a good alternative to skinny jeans to allow easy movement and bending (I feel like there would be a lot of bending and kneeling involved in camping). To stay warm I layered on a taupe knit sweater. The large pockets are great for holding snacks or chapstick.
I kept accessories to a minimal since you want to be fuss free! Camping is all about seeing the clear night sky, it was only fitting to wear gold moon cutout earrings and my zodiac adorned button bracelet. To add a bit of contrast I went with a mustard yellow belt to also help hold my pants up! All that's left is to make smores and drink hot chocolate!
We hope you enjoyed our camping outfits!
Thank you for joining us this week.
See you next week for more inspired looks!
