|A Carhartts look for Fall. WHAT??? You can see from the background they know their customer!|
Okay, I have some knowledge of this stuff. My husband grew up in Humboldt County, in the little beach town of Trinidad, 7 hours North of the Bay Area. This area of California is often referred to as behind the Redwood curtain. It’s a place where even few Californians ever venture. Carhartts is the uniform up there give or take a pair of birkenstocks and a tie-dyed T. It’s a unique area of the world that is a mix of hippies and lumber jacks. When I met my husband Max he only owned shorts, Ts and wore Tevas with socks. I kid you not and he was a late 20-something engineer who was going places. One day I’ll do a post on Humboldt, but suffice it to say that Justin, his family and all his friends are from up there. They also happen to be the kindest, most fun and loveliest group of people I have ever known. All of them.

So I’ll work the California nature girl/grunge look I guess. I can do that. It will also be right for the first 4 days we are spending in Jackson Hole and the Tetons. I’ll have to incorporate some of my own things with the flannel shirts!! Some possible inclusions:
|A vintage looking denim skirt|
Cargos for hiking and a Prana yoga top plus my woven necklace from my friend Etsuko in Japan and my J Crew Timex.
Maybe if I add a boho type scarf they won’t look too preppy?
…I could always add one of my son’s plaids on top!
Because this is a casual wedding, maybe I’ll wear this Roxy stripe dress above with a J Crew cardi and bauble necklace.
And I’ll take this.
And why not? ( This T was a gift from my husband. ;P)
I’ll need some deet apparently. 🙁
As my friend June said, “You can leave Louis Vuitton’s at home.” I crack up at the thought.
Bringing my Feed bag for sure…
And my union jack tote from Boden.
Of course a few pairs of Toms and hiking shoes.
I think this Michael Kors bracelet my husband just bought me has an earthy vibe so I’ll bring that too.
