What I Wore Wednesday

Here in Utah we celebrate the 24th of July, otherwise known as Pioneer Day. It's kind of a big deal. We all went to Escalante this year, down in southern Utah. I'm from Escalante but we moved when I was only 3. But we always went back for the 24th. This little town does it BIG! I still have family there and my Grandparents have a gorgeous house and a beautiful (huge!) piece of property. I have taken my husband there many times, but he's never experienced the 24th there. Until this past weekend. And let me tell you it was a BLAST! On Saturday we went to the parade, then to the scout lunch, over to the carnival (of which we had a craft booth) then on to the rodeo that night followed by a massive firework show. So I knew I needed a comfy outfit for the day. We were camping, but I still wanted to look cute since I was going to be seeing tons of family and friends. Here's what I came up with:

Shirt & glasses: H&M, Skirt: Luxe Couture, Shoes: Torrid (old) Necklace: Macy's, Watch: Fossil, Bracelets: Target, Hair: Dirty c/o camping.

The four of us waiting for the parade to start. 

Nichole and I behind out craft booth. Right before a massive downpour. 

Had so much fun with Nichole and Zuileka on this trip! Thanks girls!

*Our camera got a scratch on the lens during the trip, so please excuse the 'ghosts' you may see in the photos. 

I can't wait to post the rest of the pictures from our trip. It was such a great time and I can't wait till next year. I'm pretty sure all three families have agreed to make this trip a new tradition. 

What do you think of my outfit? I personally am obsessed with my new red & white striped skirt. It is super comfy and cute too!


  1. Sounds like such a great time! Your outfit is so cute! I need to learn how to camp fashionably...I always look like I've been hit by a train when I'm camping, ha. New goal: learn to be a cute camper like Amanda!:)

  2. Way fun trip! Sad we weren't there this time. I was so looking forward to the BIG DANCE hahaha

  3. Love the stripes! Thanks for linking up! Please remember to comment on the main post plus another linked post to join in :)
