What to Pack for Colorado

I’m headed to Colorado this week to celebrate my aunt’s 70th birthday! When we went to Colorado as a family for the first time last year, I was completely unprepared. I packed regular everyday outfits. Wrongo! I ended up buying workout clothes from the gift shop. I wasn’t complaining, but my husband might have been 😜… Anyway, I should have known, since most of what you do in Colorado consists of excercise- hiking, water rafting, zip lining, mountain biking, etc. But this time, I’m prepared! Here’s what I packed. Well, for the daytime, anyway.

I’ve long admired my friends who come up with cute workout wear outfits. Frankly, I don’t feel like I’m very good at it. I basically rely on fun leggings and coordinating sports bras. Then I’ll just wear one of my favorite black backless tank tops. I guess it’s my workout wear formula! Although, I am excited to add my new workout jacket and red tennis shoes to the mix!

If you’d like to follow along while I’m in Colorado, head to Instagram. Otherwise, I’ll do a trip recap when I get home.

Happy Summer!

    Haha!! So true about CO! Everyone is so “bloody” fit as my British mom likes to say.;) We just got back from CO yesterday and it really is a little paradise in the summer. Have fun! Hope you packed some hiking boots. 🙂

      Hahaha, I love your comment! It’s so true, everyone is so “bloody” fit. I didn’t go on any difficult hikes so I was ok in my tennis shoes. I did end up buying a backpack, though. Eeeeeek!
