Thrifty & Chic: Glamping Boots


Have you noticed this glamping trend that’s been popping up on all the big design sites like Frolic, Blah Blah BlahgOh, Hello Friend? I started noticing this little trend when J. Crew’s 2009 winter shoot totally made Sorrels look high fashion. I love the styling of all the photoshoots I’ve seen, but I’m not totally sold on the whole aspect of actually doing it: glamour camping, that is. Isn’t the whole point of camping to get dirt under your nails? Not a mani-pedi.

With that said, my cousin-in-law found these boots for $5 but they didn’t fit her. Gladly I took them off her hands! The leather is in near perfect condition. Maybe I’ll wear them the next time I go glamping. Or Gliking. That’s glamour hiking, in case you didn’t catch that last one. Either way, I’m totally ready for all the snow next winter (and next spring).

      I’m trying to think what my outdoorsy husband would say about “glamping”. He he. Love the boots, though.

      glamping? yeah, i don’t know if i’ll do that. i like the idea of camping as being easy and carefree: throw a tent and some sleeping bags and maybe some s’mores and dogs and you’ve got a campout. i don’t think i could glamp (i like the word though. haha)

      Sorrels ARE fashion; I love mine. I’m not so sure about camping though. I never got into it, but I feel as if I should give it another try. I am more likely to camp in my backyard though.

      Glamour camping is the only way to do camping, in my opinion (this from a girl who grew up in a tent–we went camping when other kids stayed in hotels).
