Mountain View

March 1, 2012

A few weeks ago we managed to get away to the mountains.  It was a beautiful day, perfect temperature as far as I was concerned (I like it cool), and a much needed break.  As I finish up a rather frenetic week, I’m choosing to post these pictures as a reminder to myself that I need to do this again soon.

I quickly threw on my thrifted jeans, boots, and hat, leather jacket  T.J Maxx, upcycled cowl, vest from ?, upcycled backwards  sweater, and earrings.  Some days, the outfit takes a back seat, especially when the mountains are calling.

    To me this outfit is far from backseat, more like comfortable driver’s seat. The calm in the photo is palpable – I can hear that silence. This post is a good reminder to step away and breathe.

      From the sound of things, you might need the mountains as well soon. I’m sure you’ll have the perfect ensemble and I can’t wait to see it.

      Thank you, I’m going to!! As a fellow Pisces, it’s important we enjoy this time. The photo of the Hotel Bel Air took my breath away. Enjoy!!!

    Great outfit for the mountains! Elegance is appreciated in any environment, and you look relaxed and peaceful. Do you have a March birthday???

      Yes, we both have a birthday coming up, if I’m not mistaken! So does Rosemary of She and I share the exact same day, while you’re a day later, I believe. Birds of a feather?
