I haven't been fishing since I was a very small child, so I was excited when my husband suggested we go fishing last Sunday during the Labor Day weekend! I love being out in nature, and I've found it does wonders for my psyche and morale. We went to a local lake (Missouri has a lot of lakes and rivers to fish in), and we found a sunny spot on some rocks. Although the only thing we caught was a tiny bluegill, it was still a wonderful time! Sun, lake breezes, and time away from the daily grind is always welcome.
Looking vintage-cute while outdoors can be a bit tricky, but it's possible! For me, I want clothing that is comfortable, weather-appropriate, and hardy. This fishing trip had a bit of hiking to get to our fishing spot, so I also needed sturdy shoes.
I went with overalls and a t-shirt for my outdoor look. These overalls, probably my best sewing decision ever, are sturdy and protect from brush and sticks, and it doesn't bother me if they get some dirt on them. The t-shirt is a super comfy one that provides sun protection. Lastly, I threw on my trusty Chaco sandals. I've had these sandals for eight years now (including when I lived in the Sahara) and they're still going strong!

What sorts of clothing do you wear for outdoor activities? Do you keep your vintage style or opt for more utilitarian modern clothing?
