rocky mountain high

You know how summer almost solely consists of little denim shorts and cropped tanks? Not for me. For a week in July. In super-hot Colorado. Ohhh yes. I'm going to camp.
Topshop

I'm a chaperone/counselor this year, which means I'm expected to set a good, modest example. I might need Elaine on speed-dial, but instead of letting this limit my creativity, I'm putting in twice as much effort to show off my personal style.
Roll cursor over items for details
F21 sunnies + bracelet, Joe's Jeans shorts, Equipment blouse, Cleobella bag, Stuart Weitzman sandals, Motif 56 leather bracelet

I'm thinking five-inch inseam? These shorts by Joe's Jeans fits all my requirements. Sunglasses are one important way to guard myself from super-harmful-laser UV rays, and I like to carry a backpack or crossbody at camp to pack around little things like water, granola bars, sunscreen, a notepad, and my room key.

Outfit photos in the middle of the Rocky Mountains will be some serious location eye-candy for you guys! I'm so impatient waiting to see the sweeping, mountainous terrain. When was the last time you went to camp?

  3. It has been awhile since I have been to camp - but I was on staff with a college ministry for a few years and we had a modest dress code for our summer projects in SC - was tricky to master at first, but it is totally doable. And you are on a great start - plus getting to be in the mountains will be glorious! I'm hoping to make it out there in June for a Bluegrass Festival!
    Much love,

  7. Oh how COOL! I think it is so awesome that you are going to be a camp counselor! I always always wanted to be one...thanks to all of those fab movies like Meatballs and Heavyweights and Indian Summer and I could go on and on. :) I love your selections! You'll be the cutest counselor around!! Can't wait to see pics!

  8. That sounds so fun! I'm going camping over spring break, but it'll be a little different than going TO a camp. I'm going to be wearing tanks a looot. :)

  15. You totally can still look appropriate yet super stylish at the same time, and I'm sure you shall look fabulous no matter what. Plus it really sounds like it'll be fun! I've actually never really "been to camp" oddly enough... I was way too scared as a little kid haha.

  35. Uh, last time I went to camp was a long, long time ago, but I kind of want to go now! I think your councillor outfit will be awesome, and probably more comfortable than the denim cut-offs. I love the blouse; I tend to live in stuff like that in the summer, especially at the beach (too many bad burns in the past).

  36. love the sandals! hiking is so much fun! please post alot of nature pics! :)

  45. Ha I'm from the rocky mountains. I have no idea how or why, but it gets seriously hot here some days in the summer and most tourists expect it to be chilly unless they've lived here. Anyways, hope you have fun. It really is gorgeous.
    And that is such an amazing bag, love the detailing on it.
