Outfit Monday - Boho Punchy + Mesa Mountain Hike

Hello my lovelies!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I tell you, I am so out of shape, but I feel great!  I went for a 3 mile walk/run with the hubs (yes, we are reconciling sloooowwwwllllyyyyy!) on Saturday and then Sunday we took the kids on a 3.5 mile hike up Mesa Mountain (it's a hill, don't let the name fool ya!)  Here's a few pics....
Don't let this pic fool you, it was seriously like a 30 degree incline.  I thought I was going to DIE.  It was almost a mile of that.  But, the kids were doing it without complaining so I sucked it up...
Amazing views.  The snow line was at about 7000 feet, I think this "mountain" peaked at 6200 or so, it was pretty cool looking out at the snow line... 
The craziest thing was the terrain up there at the top.  It was a prairie!!  This is grass.  So cool right??
I love the colors of this moss. 
There were so many succulents growing.  I liked this guy.
About halfway across the top and the whole descent it was mud.  My boots each weighed like 10 pounds I swear.
The gentle descent :)
I love science.  So much.  I majored in Physics/Astrophysics/Math in college up through my junior year, and dropped the first two and wrapped up my last year with just Math.  Anyhow, I'm in awe of Geology and really want to learn more.  So when I saw this lava rock, I just stood and stared at it for a while, thinking about how areas and things are formed...how these mountains formed.  It's amazing sometimes.  Remember: admire nature, but leave it as you found it.  And never remove anything from its habitat!  Leave it there for everyone else to enjoy.  I love this rock.

And here's what I wore today :)
Slouchy thin pink tee - Old Navy (used my 50% off coupon Friday and got this for $8!!)
Bell bottom jeans - thrifted, mens Navy uniform dungarees!  (love these)
White purse - Target, years ago
Scarf - vintage, belonged to my mom
Espadrille wedges - Forever 21
White bracelet - BaubleBar, FREE!!!
Watch, Nixon, 8th anniversary gift :)

I have no makeup on, hence why my face seems to be dodging the camera :)

Happy Monday lovelies!



  1. Sounds like a great weekend! I love the super cute relaxed outfit as well! I haven't got my free BaubleBar bracelet yet, but I hope it is as cute as yours! :) Way to get in some fabulous exercise!

  2. That grass looks like fur! I'm missing out living in a city. I hardly see grass!

  3. Thanks Tara! Did you get the same bracelet? It's fabulous, I love it! Serena, I thought it looked like fur too! It's amazing, I live in the suburbs of Denver, but a 20 minute drive puts you there in the foothills of the Rocky Mtns. Crazy!

  4. Fun family outing!! And, adore your chill outfit, too. Need more closer shots of that bracelet; so hard to see. Show me more love. :) xo
