Last week I travelled up to northern Michigan with my husband and our dads for our annual hunting camp. We had a spectacular time–one I’ll be documenting in a full travel diary post soon. In the meantime, I wanted to show you a few of the outfits that were my go-to for this rustic vacation. This plaid shirt was probably my most worn garment. I love that it could be worn as a shirt or as a topper over another shirt, and the bright yellow plaid felt perfect for this time of year.

When choosing a plaid shirt, I’d go for something a bit roomier than you might otherwise choose so you have the option to either wear it alone or over another shirt or even layer it with a sweater. I like to pair bright plaid tops with more understated skinny jeans and boots, like these duck boots from JBU that I previously reviewed here.

Looking for plaid? Head to Target. I seriously cannot believe how stellar their plaid offerings are at the moment. I regularly fight with myself about whether or not I should buy more, but given that my wardrobe has started to resemble that of a lumberjack, I think it’s time to slow down. Stay tuned for more plaid outfit posts.

In the meantime, check out Target’s plaid offerings. I particularly like this plaid shirt dress (so many color options!), this plaid favorite shirt (which I’m wearing in this post) in a few other colors, and this plaid tunic.

Hunting camp is a time to head out into the middle of nowhere and relax. For this reason, I chose to keep the makeup to a minimum and the beauty routine at its lowest level. Did I have chipped nail polish? You bet I did. The reason I’m featuring it here is to highlight the fact that it’s important to take some down time. Many bloggers depict a life that seems almost too perfect–their hair is always done exactly right, their makeup is flawless, you get the idea. I think it’s important to remember that bloggers are real people, and looking great often involves looking great in the setting you’re in. Beauty and fashion should never have a higher priority than taking care of yourself, spending time with family, or enjoying a vacation.

I’ll step off my soap box now. On a different note, we brought a number of Midwest microbrews to camp to try and this was one of my favorites, Anti-Hero IPA from Chicago’s Revolution Brewing.
