Hiker I am Not

Vest - Old Navy, thrifted
Cami - Forever 21, thrifted
Shorts - Express Blues, thrifted
8R Harness boots - Frye via Amazon Warehouse deals

My MIL asked if I was going hiking in this outfit. Nope! Although, I am totally going swimming today. This outfit is really my alternative Military VS Feminine. I picked up this pink cami thinking it would be good to pair with 'tougher' stuff. This shirt/vest thing was bought because I have a weird vest obsession, and I didn't own an army green vest yet. I feel like my Fryes haven't gotten enough attention, I know this because they still feel as still and hard as they were when I first took them out of the box.

Also some good news, I finally got a new phone! A really real new phone. It's not activated yet, but I'm so excited. It's a pink Samsung Seek! It's been too long since my pink Razr died and I missed it. This post is apparently devoted to my secret obsession of pink (and pink electronics, really I have a pink and green desktop computer). Do you have any colors that you love - but don't wear much?


  1. I love the boots paired with the shorts and vest! But are you dying from heat? I just don't think I could think about wearing any closed toe shoes right now. Ok, enough on my rant about the heat.

    I love the pink tank paired with the green vest. This looks great :)

    I really like kelly green, but don't wear it very often. I also like pastels, but they seem to wash me out.

  2. @ Style Journey - Actually not really. I find keeping my feet covered in heat keeps me cooler than not. If anything the vest is a little warmish and will come off later.

  3. Yay for a new phone!!!!!!!!!!!! I love this outfit on you. Those boots are awesome! I had a pink razr and I loved it so much! Too bad it's all sorts of outdated now. Boo!

  4. I am in total love with your new hair cut! You look awesome!

    I really like green, but don't seem to wear it much. I tend to wear purple more often.

    The pink and green are so fun together! You look adorable!

  5. I can't wait to see the other ways you style this pink cami - it looks so adorable!

  6. I bought myself some Frye's for my birthday. I can't wait until it gets cold enough to wear them!

  7. I love the pink and green together. I could never do boots with shorts but you do it so well! I love bright pink! I have a pink phone cover and all the stuff in my purse has pink on it. I also love apple green or chartreuse. In high school i had a chartreuse cord skirt and jacket set. It was like nothing I'd ever seen and I was thrilled!

  8. I love the vest. What a great way to get in some layers without being too hot!

    I have a love of pink electronics too - camera, phone, laptop, Ipod...but my love for pink is no secret!

  9. I love mixing masculine and feminine items like you did here. Lovely.

    My favorite color is royal blue; it's the color of all of my motorcycles. I never wear it though.

  10. i love the pink with the olive vest! that vest is so fab and i love how you wore this with the boots too!


  11. Very cute ! Love the feminine yet casual look !
