hiking apparel

i love austin, texas. it’s beautiful, quirky, and outdoor activities abound. during my recent trip, i wasn’t exactly expecting to be outdoors much, so when we decided to go hiking, this is what i wore.

i was feeling all self-conscious until we got there and one lady had on 6-inch heels and a mini skirt. she was also carrying balloons.

hiking apparel crisis averted.

    I just sat at my computer for 5 seconds with my mouth open. HIKING? You are my hero. And you look dang chic.

      Hahaha thanks. This picture was definitely taken after the fact. I was absolutely glistening after the hike. #Eww.

    I seriously hope by hiking you mean a stroll on a fairly level path through the woods. Otherwise, I bet your feet were killing you! But wedges HAVE to be better than 6″ heels! I imagine walking in 6″ heels is almost like dancing ‘en pointe’.

    LOVE the yellow and gray!

      Thanks, Selah! It was a bit more than that, but not terrible- definitely better than 6″ heels!
