Camping outfit wishlist*
As you may know, I’m planning a camping trip to Cornwall soon. There is so much to consider when arranging a camping trip. My best friend often goes camping in an RV and there are even more things to think about then. For example, she often has to do some research into ‘who has the best rv extended warranty?’. Nonetheless, as I haven’t been camping in at least 10 years, I thought it would be a great excuse to update my wardrobe, as I’m not sure many of my clothes are that “camping-appropriate”. Here’s what I’m currently lusting after in the world of comfy casuals…
A good pair of jeans
Obviously a good pair of jeans is essential and, as camping takes place on the ground, they need to be quite hard wearing. My favourite jeans are Topshop’s Joni high waisted skinny jeans. However, the material for these is not hard wearing and they’re not exactly comfy. This pair of Levi 711 skinny jeans look like they’ll do the job perfectly.
The right footwear
There’s really no point in bringing your Louboutins camping (or so I’ve been told) so it’s time to invest in a good sensible pair of trainers. I’ve literally been lusting after these Nike Airs for so long! Also, as we’re taking the dog with us, we’ll be doing plenty of cliff top exploring and walking so these should be comfy enough for that. Even more so, when I wake up in the middle of the night needing the toilet, I want to make sure I have suitable footwear and not wearing flip flops. On that note, a good torch, just like the ones from SurvivalCooking, will be crucial.
Sweatshirts and hoodies
As we’re going in September it should still be warm enough to not wear a big coat but it will be sweatshirt/hoodie weather. My fave brand for this type of wear is Jack Wills. I already have several items from here but I’m always looking for more!
I’ve heard it can get really cold at night when you’re sleeping out in the great outdoors and so, as well as a really good sleeping bag and plenty of blankets, I’d like to take a cosy pair of pajamas with me. These Short Stories pjs look really cuddly and you can wear them throughout the day as loungewear.
And the essentials…
There’s a few other little bits that are absolutely essential for any camping holiday – a waterproof coat (this is the UK after all!), flip flops (you’ll be using communal showers), and extra layers – it can get cold, even during the summer!
