30 Day Clothing Challenge~ Day 29: Something That's Your Favorite Brand

Today I'm bringing you this post from our lovely *cough* travel trailer. It's really not awful, but when you're used to a certain way of living (in a house where you don't bump into everyone trying to get around) it's well, it's a bit cramped. But we made it! Right now we're parked in a farm/RV place in Kelowna (a farm that has apple trees scattered around for me to pick at my leisure) as we look for a house to buy/rent. The trip was an interesting one, considering we decided to drive from Florida to British Columbia, and it took seven days. Suffice to say I'm glad to be out of the car. Some highlights from our trip...
  • My dad tried to take a shower in the trailer and discovered he didn't quite fit. He had to stick his head in the air vent.
  • South Dakota (The Badlands in particular), parts of Wyoming, and Washington are all really pretty. I can't say much about the parts of Minnesota, Iowa, or Illinois we saw, as it was mostly corn. And Georgia was Florida, minus beaches and with more billboards advertising stripper joints.
  • One night this huge RV parked next to us. We named it the Death Star and decided it was here to eliminate all inferior RVs. When it started glowing green in the middle of the night we couldn't stop laughing.
  • I saw Buffalo!
And of course, since every trip has one disasterous moment, this happened to us not 30 minutes from our final destination. We were so. close. Maybe we drove a little too hard?

Luckily, people are extraordinarily nice here and someone stopped to help.

It's really hard to find time to write right now, so I'm going to finish up the last two days of this clothing challenge before I get back to other things. During the trip I've been wearing more or less the same outfit (a pair of cargo pants and a tanktop) so I'll be using any old pictures I can find. I don't actually have a favorite brand per say. I buy most of my items via thrifting or online shopping and there isn't really one brand that sticks out. Of course, I like brands such as Hell Bunny and Lip service, but I can't say either one is my favorite and I think you've seen all of the clothes I own by those brands . However I constantly find things I like at White House Black Market (even if I normally can't afford it) and I was lucky enough to thrift this jacket a few weeks ago.



It's a really lightweight jacket which means I can wear it even when it's a bit warmer. And I'm absolutely in love with the ruffles on the front. They satisfy my love of fancy, frilly things.  I'm wearing it with the new lacy high-to-low skirt I bought the same day, but I didn't get a picture so that will have to wait until next time ^^

    1. We wanted to get out of Florida. Really we're sick of the States in general XD The weather, chance to ski, beautiful landscape, and overall friendliness of the people in Kelowna is what drove us to choose it as our new home. I really love it so far and the move has been....interesting to say the least ^^

  2. I loved the Badlands. There's a lot of Native American folklore surrounding the area. And being from Georgia, I will say that it is different from Florida. Have you been to Savannah, or to the mountains? It's lovely. South Georgia, not too interesting...

    1. Yes the Badlands were lovely ^^ And oh no, I did NOT mean to imply Georgia couldn't be interesting and/or fun! I simply meant that the landscape around the highway in Florida and Georgia was awfully similar, but that goes for a lot of highways XD I'd love to see other parts of Georgia, but unfortunately we didn't really have time to stop anywhere...

    The Death Star? Hahaha, that's great!
    That's a gorgeous jacket! :D

    The Badlands sounds like something out of a fantasy novel- I think a book I've read has a Badlands, complete with giant poisonous worms- did you spot any? ;)

    1. Thanks! :)

      I'm very sad to say we encountered no giant worms. Those would have made for some great pictures XD
