What I Wore: Mad for Plaid
It's occurred to me that I seem to have acquired quite a lot of plaid clothing lately. I went from not owning a stitch of plaid since I was in high school, maybe even middle school to a whole closet full! Okay that's a bit of an exaggeration. Jedidiah still has waaay more plaid than me, but still, I have a lot. Fleet Collection had an amazing sale over the holidays and they just kept having them so eventually I ended up owning their whole collection of these fabulous skirts for a whopping $13-24 depending on the coupons I had. I have to admit if they had more colors I'd own them all! I really need to work on my year goal of making my own skirts cause I'm confident I can make this style quite easily (I think). Then I could make them custom to my height. I love a more modest length but I prefer my skirts more at my knees or just above vs below.
Most of these picts were taken in front of the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park. And no, I'm far to chicken to stay the night there because while my hubby would be fast asleep sawing logs, I'd be wide awake letting my imagination get the best of me. I have been inside the hotel several times though. Awesome place. Creepy feeling but awesome. Anyhoo, I love sneaking away to Estes when ever we can. This is such a beautiful area. If you get a chance to visit Estes Park, definitely visit summer - October at the latest. The best time to visit is in August/September when the elk are out but you can still travel through the whole Rocky Mountain National Park.
Sadly, most of the photos I took of our very short trip did not turn out very well. It happens sometimes. I'm still a photographer in the making. So I'll keep this post short. I have more local travel adventures and posts to come very soon!
