Shelby and I did a post about taking Noonday Camping a year ago and as I have been planning for camping lately, I have had a really tough time finding a good post full of outfits for camping so I thought I would do my own!
The key to staying stylish (but smart) while camping is to bring layers!
Bring things that are ok to get dirty.
Pack outfits that can easily mix and match – that way you can change something if you get wet or dirty.
Bring your no-fail favorites that are the most comfortable of pieces!!!
Things to remember while packing are: comfort, dirt, layers, and temperature…All things that are variable so you need to be prepared. Especially if you have kids camping with you (which will be a post for Friday!)
What I’m learning more and more is that it is OK to over-pack clothes BECAUSE – you NEVER know what’s going to happen when you’re camping. 🙂 Take that as permission to pack more than enough for your time in a tent!
If you notice, I used two pairs of shorts, one pair of jeans, two outer layers and each outfit has a different shirt. typically you can get away with only packing a couple of bottoms and re-wearing – unless you are spending a lot of time on the water, your bottoms won’t be as dirty as the tops will be…also, one pair of walking/hiking shoes would be beneficial and one (or two) pairs of sandals is plenty. Maybe one for the beach and one for daily wear. I didn’t show it, but be sure to bring a pair of yoga pants or sweat pants to throw on for the evenings, around the campfire!
What about you, what would you/do you pack to wear for camping?
