Get out your hiking pumps, honey!
Blog Guy, you’re a serious outdoorsman, right?
Well, I don’t want to brag, but yes, I’ve spent my share of nights sleeping out in, what’s the word, those canvas things with poles?
Tents. So I have a serious outdoor fashion question. My boyfriend is taking me to Valley of Fire State Park, in Nevada, to hike and check out those legendary red sandstone formations, and I want to know what to wear so I don’t look out of place. Help!
Sure. First, in a rough terrain like that you’ll want to take good care of your feet. I’d recommend platform peep-toes, or stiletto pumps.
Really! See, I would have thought maybe good hiking boots?
Get real. All the other chick hikers will be wearing heels. For clothing, go for shorts and something sleeveless, to expose as much skin as possible to the intense summer Nevada sun. And accessorize with some long dangling earrings and a nice purse.
Wow, THANKS! A totally unexpected way to go, I must say. Anything else?
Yes. I believe lots of serious hikers are wearing those popular sashes, the one with the name of a country like HAITI or PERU.
That’s GREAT! I’ll go with Belgium!
Belgium? You just don’t get it, do you?
