camping suitcase

observant nomad | camping roundup

Summertime has always been synonymous with camping  to me. I love getting out of the city heat into the crisp cool beautiful days of the Rocky Mountains. The skys are usually blue and clear. In the morning it’s cold and crisp, perfect for cooking some eggs on the fire and sipping hot coffee before a hike.

The afternoons heat up and create the perfect time to hang around in the shade and play games. In the evenings we cook our meals, drink our beer, and look up at the bright speckling of the stars. So many stars up that high! It’s awe-inspiring.

Here’s a little list of what I like to take camping.


1. Coleman® Steel-Belted Cooler on L.L. Bean 2. Ray-Ban Aviators Small in Gold by Ray-Ban 3. Gingham Utility Shirt in Navy by J. Crew 4. Texsport Heavy Duty Camp 24″ X 16″ Grill on 5. Enamelware Dinnerware Set in Black by West Elm Market 6. Byer Amazonas Barbados Hammock on REI 7. Mexican Blanket in Dark Brown & Mocha 8. Barebones Forest Lantern in Nickel on REI 9. Sensitive Facial Cleansing Towelettes with Cotton Extract by Burt’s Bees

I totally wish I was hanging on that hammock right now instead of sitting at work. Now I wanna camp!


I need a hammock in my daily life! maybe one in my tiny apartment ;)

I can’t tell how much I love your blog (and design style). Plus I’m a huge fan of camping and you look like you do it the right way! :) Enjoy!


Aw thanks! I am totally an outdoorsy girl. I love getting away into the mountains.
