Camp style



Today's post is inspired by our 3-day camping trip we just came home from a few hours ago. It was total bliss: we took a couple friends, a couple dogs, and three horses and took off to a favourite camp site of ours, close to Merritt, BC. There is no cell reception (which accounts for my radio silence), just gorgeous country site and friendly people. As per usual, I took a gazillion photos, and will share a few more tomorrow, but for now let's focus on the "fashion" aspect of things.  

There are several non-negotiable items you need when you go camping: 
1. Crocs. Or in my case, Dawgs (because I like dogs, duh). I know they are hideous and the epitome of shoe atrocities, but nonetheless, they are perfect for camping. 
2. Ariat lace-up riding boots. Because about twice a year, I do actually climb on my horse, and this trip was one of those times. I have had them for 12 years, and if I keep using them sparingly, they will last me a lifetime. Great boots! Oh, and they have to be dirty. Don't clean them, or you will look like a city slicker. 
4. Bandana around your neck, given to you by a real cowboy. More about that tomorrow.
5. Greasy hair, dirty nails, dusty feet. 
6. A hat, to cover said greasy hair. Even the dogs wear them (see below). 
7. Coffee. Because, you know, coffee.

This is not our dog. He came for a visit, and stayed for a few hours. His name is Cola, and I really like him. 
This is also not our horse. She came for a visit as well. Her name is Norma.

We had a blast, but honestly, three days of not washing gets to you. This shower I had a couple hours ago was heaven! Not only for me, but apparently for the people around me as well. 

Anyway, more about our quick trip tomorrow. Have a lovely weekend!

xoxo, clean Miriam

  1. I think the jeans and Crocs picture is my favorite...not gonna lie :)
    So, in all of the fun I've had reading and commenting on your blog I don't think I've ever mentioned how much I envy the fact that you get to be around so many amazing animals so often. I seriously love animals - dogs, cats, horses, other house pets, other farm animals, and even the occasional lizard (lol). Its always such a treat to see the pictures that you take with them - what a lucky girl you are!!

  3. I Loooooove the idea to go and get around somewhere not by car but on horses! I love Nature very much and I used to could not imagine without huge cities (lived in several very big cities on 2 continents, different countries) but now no big cities thank you or maybe just for a visit... So yeah, I got your point! And camping? Sounds like so much fun and even (way) more with Animals :}}}

  5. I take my crocs camping too. They are perfect for rainy days (as long as it's not too cold). Even though we camp where there are showers, I usually take one every other day. So yeah, that first shower at home, no shower shoes to deal with, is pure heaven!
