Tonight I bring you the 2nd half of my weekend getaway...second half being when I dressed like a Soccer-Mom with 2 kids spending the day at an amusement park. Seriously! I looked as if we were equipped for walking all over Six Flags (over St. Louis of course, because this is the one I grew up going to). Scratch that--can I change my amusement park to Opryland, oh wait no its closed...Pretend I chose Dollywood to get my point across. Yeah-Dollywood sounds about right.
Anyway, we were not at an amusement park, and I am not a soccer mom, I just happened to opt for a very practical/appropriate outfit for a vacation day spent doing vacation-y things.
Like....GOING TO BUSHKILL FALLS!
And sometimes an avid wearer of heels needs to put on a pair of kicks in order to enjoy the great-outdoors. And shorts and a t-shirt too!
My Outdoor Attire includes:
*White tshirt, Uniqlo
*Khaki shorts, Gap Outlet
*White tennis shoes, KEDS
*Printed Scarf, Old Navy
*Silver vintage owl, thrifted while in the Poconos
*Beige bag, Makowsky*Black sunglasses, Kensie
Oh nature....Oh FRESH AIR!
Yeah...a bit too much fresh air. While I thought the waterfall was great and all, there just happened to be a Fireworks Superstore right smack dab next to our hotel that was calling us back home. We had to bust outta the vacation sightseeing thing and get back to the Buy-One-Get-One-Free firecracker spectacular!
Heck yeah! We went the super explosive route...
bought us some BLACK SNAKES!
Somehow I think my hairstyle, the lighter, and the igniting of fireworks in pure daylight in a public space makes me look all the more white trash. We're in the Poconos for goodness sakes...and I still didn't fit in :(
And is it wrong of me to think that this looks like a flaming charred terd?
Oh the Poconos...what a weekend getaway it was. I think I'll go back.
For anyone else in the North Eastern seaboard, and/or the Ohio/Pennsylvania area, I would recommend a weekend excursion to this outdoor mountainous region. The thrifting and flea markets alone were enough to make my trip a success...but throw in the motel bar w/$2 beers, the buy one get one free fireworks, and this scary doll I saw in a salon window...and I just had a darn successful vacation--soccer mom style and all!
By the way, I'm pretty certain the salon was called Bo-Tangles. Awesome!
