Ruche

fall11

I recently made a purchase from Ruche, a vintage clothing company that I discovered a few months back and I am definitely in love!!, I honestly hate online shopping unlike most people, because I get so impatient waiting on my packages and it’s annoying when the stuff doesn’t fit or the color is weird and I have to ship them back (sigh!)…..even though I go through tons of reviews about the clothing, it’s still rare for me to get stuff online (in terms of clothes/shoes). Anyhow, after browsing Ruche website for hours (everything was so cute!), I settled on this taupe midi skirt. It is super comfy, cute and awesome quality, I know I’ll wear this a lot πŸ™‚

I think it’s funny how this looks more like fall, but I promise flowers are blossoming everywhere around here and it is definitely spring, just not where I chose to take my outfit pics haha. I wore my black cardigan to complete the look and because it is chilly and drizzling a bit. Do you like my outfit?

Have a nice day friends.

Mailbox peak attempt 1

Hi friends,

So remember that post about “solo hiking” not being my thing?, well scratch that, I did it today and I have never been prouder of myself!
I knew none of my friends would join me on a January hike (40 degrees out), and my bf’s working schedule is insane – he can barely tell whether it’s day or night anymore so I ventured out on my own…..I couldn’t wait any longer.
I chose mail box trail, which I have wanted to go on since summer, I read reviews on WTA, and decided I was up for the challenge. So I unfortunately got up late, no traffic (1 hr away), and I wasted 15 mins trying to find parking since the road to the trail’s parking lot was closed. Found parking a mile away from the trail (I was determined!! nothing could stop me. Haha)

Started up the trail at 12:30, I was so excited at the start,

And then I hit 3 miles of upward gaining feet, no soul in sight , just endless trees, I contemplated going back but I kept pushing. I knew the sun would set at 4:30 pm so I promised myself if I didn’t reach the top by 2:45, I would turn back. Most people reach the top within 2-3 hrs so I hoped to really see that mailbox. In total(both ways) the hike is supposed to be 9.5-ish miles so when I hit mile 5 I was really confused ( I was using my Nike gps app), I started seeing people and they warned me the hike to the top was no trails just climbing up rocks and that I needed a flashlight for my way back down – I had one ☺️, and a survival kit too lol
Anyway, when I met this couple sitting in the woods, the girl looking like death, I gave them half my food, despite the fact that I was dying myself.
So I got to the end of the forest at this open spot literally less than a mile from the mailbox but it was 3:15pm and no way Jose was I going back in the dark. So my adventure ended that close to the freaking mailbox but I’ll be back (earlier) and I shall conquer you mailbox peak!!
