Outfit: Camping at the Lake


Hi friends! I’m back online after a weekend camping with no service! Often times being without internet stresses me out, but it was nice to just detach for a while. I hadn’t been camping in so long, and had so much fun out on the lake drinking loads of campfire coffee! When I found out I was going on this trip, I knew I’d need a couple of wardrobe additions. I didn’t have any sort of bathing suit, so I decided to make one. I ended up with this little black and white gingham one piece which I just love! It’s simple, but with a retro feel. I also made these linen shorts from a 1950s pattern to wear as a coverup, and I love how they turned out. The high waist is perfect, and they make me feel like Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina. 🙂 I brought along my denim jacket since it had been rainy, and added my new Anthropologie sunglasses and old black sandals to finish off this comfy camping look. My gold Madewell necklace pretty much never leaves my neck, so it went to the lake too!

I always forget how beautiful Arkansas is, and it was wonderful to have the opportunity to explore and photograph some nature.  IMG_3489

  1. I am so jealous right now because our family actually didn’t get to go camping this summer. Usually we are gone most of the summer camping but this summer was busy with my brothers baseball schedule and other things. I have to say that Arkansas is definitely one of my favorite places to go camping with the lush woods and pretty cliffs by the water. I love your camping look. Usually camping for me means not caring about fashion what so ever and wearing old clothes that don’t match, but you managed to still be super chic and fashionable (which I greatly admire).
