Grand Canyon “Style”

Actually, the title is a misnomer…

I had a great time, but NO STYLE while camping at the Canyon earlier this month.
Granted, it was chilly and mostly rainy the entire time, but still!

Funny how my “in town” wardrobe is daring and robust,
but my camping gear is fuddy-duddy, at best.

But what better impetus to get a new raincoat, hmmm?
The  old one immediately went into the Goodwill bag when I got home…
and I bought this sweet little black jacket by Betsy Johnson online.

It has some pizzazz, with its  ruffled hem and inner lining,
plus it can be dressed up or down…
quite possibly the true measure of a potentially great piece!

While I was frumping it at “the Canyon”, (that’s what we Arizonans call the Grand Canyon) we did a Mary Colter run.
She’s the famous southwestern architect that designed for Fred Harvey houses in the early 1900′s.

First we went to see the Watchtower,

then Hopi House and El Tovar at the Grand Canyon Village,

and finally we saw the Overlook building.

We missed seeing Hermit’s Rest this time due to both visibility and time issues,
but hopefully there will soon be another trip…
this time, with the better gear!

  1. Trusty jeans and a colourful tunic? You look just fine to me!
    Cute raincoat, and what wonderful buildings. xxxx

  2. Great photos of those buildings! I especially like the misty/foggy one.

    My utilitarian sporty raincoat is pretty dull. Maybe I need a new one, too! Yours is cute!

  3. Camping would be no fun at all if one had to worry about getting an outfit dirty. You are dressed perfectly for the occasion, with even a hat. Great photos. I love your new raincoat too.

  4. wonderful photos! adventures are more exciting than clothes, any day. that said, love your new raincoat : > Thanks for sharing with Vis Monday. xox

  5. The rockwork in those first two photos is wonderful! Your hat…so cute!! nothing wrong with your camping clothes, as long as you have lots of pockets for treasures I call it good!

  6. Love the architecture tour, love the new coat! What a beauty!
