Concrete Catwalk // Camping Chic

November 3, 2011
ok, so this look hardly qualifies as being “chic” but i needed a title, so i went with it.
(AND, i’m a sucker for alliteration.)
last friday, i showed you my ideal outfit for a quick little camping trip with friends,
now i figured i should show you what i actually wore. :)
layers, fun prints, the required knit cap & fur trim.
knit cap (similar) – forever21
scarf (similar) – urban outfitters
sunnies (similar) – banana republic outlet
striped tee (similar) – j. crew
plaid shirt (similar) – j. crew (men’s)
sweatshirt (bottom photo) – j. crew
socks – j. crew
foldover boots – c/o wanted shoes

    You’ve done it! You’ve mastered the cute while camping look…something I’ve been working on for ages :) Love the mix of patterns…stripes, plaid and floral.

    …and Happy Birthday!

    Sorry, I dont get the print mixing. Maybe it is the way it looks online, but how are you deciding what goes with what???

    thanks, everyone! (and yes, it is my bday… secret’s out!) :)

    sarah, print-mixing is my favorite! i can understand why it might look a little quirky to some, but that’s why i like it!

    in this look, i went a little bolder with the trend than i normally do because we were just going camping with a bunch of our close friends, and i knew they truly wouldn’t care what i looked like. (thank GOODNESS, you should have seen me the next morning!)

    i started with the plaid men’s shirt, and wanted to play off of the tiny bit of orange in the pattern, so i added the striped shirt. the floral scarf was an afterthought, but i liked how the colors of the flowers almost married the colors that were in the plaid and on the tee. i might not make much sense when it’s spelled out, but i was feeling it at the time, so i ran with it!

    Best thing about this is that you are smiling. Nothing looks better than a friendly face. :)
