21 Day Challenge, Day 8: Mixing Fancy & Casual

Day 8, Fancy and casual

I think packing for a trip is challenging enough without adding another later of complication, but we are spending a couple of days in a state park lodge as a little anniversary getaway/escape from remodeling chaos. So here I am with a travel edition of the 21 Day Challenge, squinty vacation picture and all. I was a little concerned when I saw the prompt for today was to mix dressy and casual, since my plans for the day included hiking and swimming. I puzzled over it for quite a while, but finally I thought of this shirt. I usually wear it with black pants or skirt. Full disclosure: I did not wear this for hiking or swimming. :-) But it was great for playing tourist in town where we wandered around checking out boutiques and galleries. I even got a few compliments on my shirt. We are having a great time and enjoying gorgeous weather. Back to vacation now; I'll write more about our trip later.

Details: Shirt: Hand me down; Jeans: Target, thrifted; Shoes, Sketchers; one of my bracelets from yesterday


  1. I'm totally impressed that you are still doing this on vacation! You're doing it very well, too. That lovely shirt dresses up your jeans just the right amount for tourist-ing!

    Happy anniversary! I hope you have a relaxing and wonderful retreat!

  2. Wow! Way to work with what you've got on a non-fancy vacation! It looks pretty out there, in the scenery!

  3. Great mandarine top. Beautiful colour.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts--I love hearing from you!
