My husband and I along with our 3 closest friends took a week long motorcycle trip out to Yellowstone at the end of July. Finally made it through all the photos and collaged up my favorites to share with you lovelies! I think I got a bit overexcited though, and realized AFTER finishing that I should've included fewer photos per collage. So my apologies that most of these are probably too small to make out the amazing scenery :( It was a fun trip! And since I wasn't the only one with a camera, we got some photos of us on the motorcycle (rare!) which I found highly entertaining :) I've got one scenery collage and one outfit collage for each day, except the day spent in the Park which has 3 scenery collages.
Sartorially, I decided to try riding wearing button-ups instead of tees, and in the evenings I'd simply swap out my riding pants/boots with skinnies and sandals/tennies; this small change to add a little structure was a HUGE help in combating feeling frumpy in all my gear (which is, of course, all too large now). I will absolutely be doing this on any long trip from now on. It was also great that both button-ups were tab sleeved and very thin cotton; I could cover up in the heat to avoid sunburn without overheating then later roll the sleeves up, and with a thin layering tank below I could remove the top layer if it got too too hot (and sometimes it did).
