Proper Hiking Attire

Yesterday my boyfriend and I decided to explore a small riverbed/hiking trail near his new house. We have been driving past a very pretty part of it for a few weeks now and finally found the time to park, get out, and explore.

I wear heels most days, so it was no surprise to either of us that I happened to be wearing super inappropriate gear for a hike - but I managed somehow. Note to self: start keeping flats in my trunk! At least I had my new hat to shield my eyes from the setting sun. I found it for $7 earlier this week and have been aching to create an outfit around it. I paired it with these See By Chloe wide leg jeans and a simple teeshirt for a 70s vibe.

We had a great time walking around, talking about our day and catching up. My boyfriend and I live about 45 minutes apart from each other, and while that's not a long distance relationship, it can sometimes feel that way. We talk on the phone regularly, but there's no substitute for being together in person. It was a nice treat to be able to have a log conversation in such a peaceful place.

(apologies for the photo quality, these are from my phone).

  5. I love those western-influenced jeans, and your style in general! Was browsing your Etsy and was smitten with all your unique vintage finds.

  6. Shoe health and comfort is a very individual experience. Shoe health, comfort is mainly a matter of correct size and fit. Podiatric Associates, reminds us that the most important factor in shoe health and comfort is a proper fit. I find this website for Best Hiking Shoes for Women. You can visit this site.

  8. Stunning photos! Thanks for sharing with us. Although when I'm walking and trekking long distance, I do wear the proper attire to be comfortable. With my trusty backpack, I manage to bring everything I need for camping. My dad used to say that I should invest in quality products for my camping needs. I'm glad that I listened to him since all my clothes and equipments are from trusted manufacturers. If you need to find out more, see this awesome site

  10. That many of these games provide them with the same thrill that they could get with actual hunting, but without having to go out and going through all the hassles that come with it. outdoor gear world

  11. Yeah, I know that wearing heels all day hiking is very hard. My wife had an unforgetable experience one time she went camping on a hill near LA with me :D Hope you have a wonderful day! Cheers!
