Camping Fashion - the Dress Up edition

Inspector Climate's family has gone camping at Easter every year since the dawn of time for the last 30 years. Inspector Climate and I have missed a couple of Easter camping excursions, but instead we go with his parents over Christmas.

I like to make sure that I'm dressed appropriately AND fashionably when I go camping. And I know what you're thinking...Decoybetty is NOT a fashion blog and I really hope she isn't about to lay down some fashion knowledge.

To which I say, puh-lease. The first time I went camping, I brought the heat with some foxy camping negligee.

Over Christmas, I knew I needed to take it up a notch (I clearly mean up the ridiculous factor).

And so, I wore this.

To achieve this look, I recommend starting off with your basic black skirt and some kind of up body covering (don't worry no one will see it), then get cold and wear your husband's jacket which is much to big for you.  Get colder still and pull your very orange fleece pants out of your bag.

Then stand next to a shovel and a heart shaped bucket.

  2. For work I like to look smart and professional, for dinner or drinks I like to look stylish. For hiking, shopping or camping I like to be comfortable and warm. To hell with style, it's all about practicality! Rocking it well ;) xx

  7. ...and I LOVE that you posted this. Outfits like this happen a lot in my house. Sometimes you just don't want to change. All you have to do is keep adding layers!

    Oh and Colon's jackets are the best or keeping warm!

  9. Definitely, thinking practical is best. Still..I'd love your list of what you guys like to bring with you, when camping. I mean, I need to know this stuff. I haven't been camping since I was little, and the campers next to us always had cooler stuff than we did.

  10. I'm not going to lie, I have seen a good number of girls wearing similar outfits in Boulder. So if you come to visit your brother again, you will fit right in!

  11. Wear all of the things! If I ever went camping (which seems highly unlikely), that's certainly what I'd do.
