Friday Five: I'd So Wear That

Friday FiveJulie Stanley1 Comment

Getting close to going on our Colorado vacation and I can't stop dreaming about it! Actually, that's not true, the other night I dreamt about a musical based on the life and times of Darth Vader and Jabba the Hutt. There was tap dancing and impressive props including a giant Vader helmet that flew. I even woke up singing the songs. Yes, my brain created songs for this fake musical. 

In any case, my day dreams have been about the beautiful mountain air and aspen trees. Can't. Wait. 

So while talking to Pyro Man about all the things we're planning on doing in Colorado, my first thoughts were, "Ooooh. What am I going to wear?!" A girl's got to look good out in the woods.

 I ran across an ad for Anthropolgie, one of my all time favorite stores, and showed it to the adventurous outdoorsy huntin'-and-fishin'-lovin' husband of mine. See how I'm setting this up for you? 

"Don't you think this would be perfect for our trip?!"

Blank stare. One arched eyebrow. Then unexplainably he walked out of the room.

"So...no?" 

Men.

5 Ways Anthropologie Supported My Romanticized Outdoor Life

Five gorgeous outfits I'd TOTALLY wear to Colorado if I was just standing around posing.  

This is the "Sure, Honey! Let's go hiking! You get started and I'll catch up..." outfit.

Picnic in the glen, anyone? I brought my purse to tip the deer.

Here's an outfit for lounging around in the meadows. You know, so caus.

Yes, if I were to go canoeing, I'd want to look like this. Except instead of canoeing I would just stand on the dock and look out over the water, too. 

Sidenote: This is the outfit Pyro Man walked out on. How can you walk away from this stylishness?!

All seriousness, I'd totally vaca in these outfits. I think they're gorgeous and stunning and if I could only convince Pyro Man they were necessary for our trip, I'd buy them up in a heart beat. 

And now, just for your viewing pleasure, last year's trip where I caught and HELD a fish. First time holding a fish in my adult life. It was gross.  PS: This fish was not squished in the making of this video despite the death grip I have on the little feller.
