Guide to fashionable camping attire

I go on a short camping trip every year, and although it is only 4 or 5 days out of my entire summer…I have become very set on acquiring all the true camping wardrobe staples to utilize during my trip. I like the idea of ruffing it in ripped jeans and flannel shirts around the campfire at night with moccasins protecting my ankles and feet from mosquito bites and a long belted cardigan to throw on top when it gets chilly. And then during the day wearing high waisted shorts paired with bathing suit, cute sandals and a big floppy felt hat reminiscent of woodstock. So after scouring the internet for cheap and chic camping gear, I present to you; The guide to camping wardobe essentials.

plaid and flannel shirts –  a couple short sleeve light weight plaids for daytime to throw on over your bathing suit with your shorts, and some long sleeve super soft flannel pieces for nighttime sitting around a fire roasting marshmallows and drinking beer. My personal favorite it the large shirt front and center. I am strongly considering buying it.
