Hit the Trail: Great Pieces for Sunshine Days

Summer is officially here! Well, ok, it’s not technically summer since the summer solstice has not happened yet, but we all know that Memorial Day weekend is usually considered the unofficial-official start of summer. Personally, my favorite thing about summer is getting out of the Las Vegas heat to hike and camp with friends or my minions.

Getting out and enjoying nature under the summer sun calls for specific outdoor gear, especially for curvy girls.  First and foremost, make sure that most, if not all, of your gear has a UPF rating.  This fabulous feature is an AMAZING first line of defense to not only keep your face and décolletage looking young, but more importantly, 1 in 50 of us will be diagnosed with melanoma in our lifetime, and UPF-rated clothing and hats, like the one featured below from Outdoor Research, are a great way to protect you from the sun’s damaging rays.

Second, lightweight and moisture-wicking fabrics are a girl’s best friend out on the trail after her hydration reservoir. I LOVE convertible pants like the ones featured from Columbia. They’re thick enough to protect my legs while going through brush, heavy enough to keep me warm during cool desert morning and evenings, but even better as shorts during the heat of the day.

A great pack by Osprey is a definite essential with room for a light Columbia jacket or raincoat, snacks, and an included a 3-liter hydration reservoir.  Of course, don’t forget that great hiking boots are your best friend during those summer outdoor adventures, especially ones that are as comfortable (and good looking) the Vasque Breeze 2.0 with GTX.

Finally, for those times you’re spending the night out in nature, I am going to tout the best bag/ sleeping pad combination I’ve ever come across.  The beauty of Big Agnes sleeping bags and pads is that the bag has an integrated sleeve for the sleeping pad, thus insuring it doesn’t sneak away while you sleep! The Double Z sleeping pad is lightweight, air-filled and extra cushy at four inches thick, and honestly makes sleeping out in the rocky desert as comfortable as on my bed back home. As an added bonus, it doesn’t squeak and crackle like most sleeping pads do! Who knew camping could be so comfy?

White Haute: 12 Hot Looks for Hot Days Ahead

Once upon a time, society dictated that no one wore white between Labor Day and Memorial Day of the next year, except for brides at weddings. Thank goodness those days are gone and we can now wear white year round without committing a major fashion faux pas!

White in all its subtle variations can’t help but leave you feeling cool, confident and ready to take on the world; after all, in American society, white represents purity, coolness, charity and perfection.

When everyone else is wearing shades of grey and black, white pops out to catch your eye. Add some great shoes , a great bag , and finish it all off with some amazing jewelry, and you’re ready for the next White Party, charity event, or afternoon out with your friends. 

Just remember that while rocking white anywhere anytime is generally okay, only the bride gets to wear it at most weddings!
