What I Wore: With Mountains Calling
And, they were definitely calling us on our first summer weekend, so we packed the dogs into the car and took off for the drive through the Beartooth Mountains, making our way through Sunlight Basin and Chief Joseph's Highway, up to the Top of the World and then winding back down to end in Red Lodge. It's really an all-day event, and a nostalgic one. The Boy proposed this very drive as our second ever date! Said it was long (it ended up being about a six hour trip) but by the end we'd know whether we could talk to one another or not. Guess that work'd out in our favor, huh?
The funny thing about mountains are you can see almost every ecosystem all in one place. So we rose from the green and warm valleys bursting with wild flowers and ascended up to the snow-covered tundra. This means you gotta come prepared so- layers, which is why I'm wearing a sweater in June. Also, if you're scrambling up over mud and rocks you better come prepared for that too- hence the converse tennies (though even these aren't great for that). Altogether it is a bit more preppy and sporty look than I usually do but comfort and cuteness came all in one!
What sort of nature calls to you? And how do you dress for it when it does?
