Layers. Lots of Layers.
Guys, I’m still not over our trip upstate last weekend. I was really craving a digital detox, and a quick trip up to the Catskills surrounded by beautiful nature and fall foliage was the perfect cure. If you’ve never done a trip to the northeast during the fall, add it to your bucket list immediately. It’s one of my favorite things! You can see our previous trips here.
After a very brisk night spent snuggled under approximately 102 blankets in our tepee, we woke up early to see the sunrise. I built a fire (for warmth) and we just sat around it in silence watching the flames dance around the burning logs as the sun peaked over the mountain tops. It was very serene and nice to truly be in the moment and not worried about everything else I could or should have been doing.
When the fire started to die down, we got up the courage to go and get dressed. The thing we didn’t really think about is that it was 40 something degrees outside. Even though it might have been a few degrees warmer inside the tepee, you were essentially still out in the elements. Those few moments you were undressed were BRISK! But luckily I brought the coziest cashmere sweatshirt to change into along with this warm plaid blanket scarf I immediately wrapped around me. I’m obsessed with this cashmere sweatshirt. It’s waffle knit fabric is a unique texture and despite it’s light weight it keeps you very warm. I love a good blanket scarf (I own SO many different ones) but I really like the colors of this one.
After getting dressed I emerged from the tepee thankful to see the sun had fully risen over the mountains, and basked in the warmth the sun provided as the frosty grass glistened in the sunlight. Soon we said goodbye to our tepee, and Luna the dog who was staying (with her owners) in the adjacent tepee, and started our journey back to the city.
P.S. Our travel vlog from the trip is going up on our YouTube channel this afternoon. Trust me, you don’t want to miss it! Watch it for the late night bathroom adventures to the outhouse alone, ha ha!
*The scarf was sent to us for free from ilymix with no obligation to talk about, but we truly love it! They have tons of cute styles and prints.
