Don't Hate, Sport.

"You two are looking quite dapper today," said a fellow hiker with a snicker on the trail to Delicate Arch* in Arches National Park just outside Moab, Utah.  Ok, so maybe Colin was wearing a fedora for much of the trek, and I was sporting a pimped-out statement necklace when everyone else was clothed in head-to-toe workout gear, but does everyone have to practical?  Most of the time the people crossing our path would give us a chirpy hello followed by a look that said, "You have absolutely no idea what you're doing out here, idiots.  We secretly hope you lose your way and get eaten by wolves."  Thankfully I was able to laugh off the condescending looks because I didn't give a flying hoot.** Plus, my fellow hikers, my way of dressing makes way cooler photos. Na-na-na-na-boo-boo.***

*Delicate Arch is the famous on on Utah's license plate.
**See, if I was insecure I would definitely not use the phrase "flying hoot."  This confidence also makes room in my vocabulary for phrases like "jeepers" and "golly gee whiz."  
***Admittedly, I do normally wear workout gear when it's appropriate, but dressing abnormally was really quite entertaining...so I'll do it again soon.

Relax, people, it's just an outfit.

I am still perfectly agile.  After I finish this side plank, I'll catch you a bunny for dinner.

Maybe three weeks in the car together wasn't such a good idea...

Nature brings me balance.
The infamous ensemble - Hat: $4 thrift store find, Sunglasses: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Statement Necklace: Topshop, Sweater: Vintage 80s (It's actually a cardigan, but I like to wear it backwards), Shirt: Madewell also seen here, Shorts: Topshop, also seen here, Boots: Steve Madden road trip staples.

I love Utah!!! (despite the weird looks...)
