It's been a busy weekend + a few days.Both my house, and the back of Nate's truck has looked like Bass Pro and Cabela's threw up all over it. It's like, a mixture of firearms, camo, and...a whole bunch of other crap.
The hubs and I left last Friday to go hunting for javelina, or as I like to call it, "javelining," and the verdict is in:
I didn't kill one.
I know, waa waa waaaaa.
But it was still fun and we got to see lots and lots of deer...too bad I didn't have a deer tag. But alas, that's the way the cookie crumbles right?
So since I don't have cool pics to post of me with a dead pig, I figured I'd talk about
something else...my outfit.
Cause my dear bloggy friend Kalyn over at Love, Laughter, Happily Ever After pointed out to me that "OOTD" means "Outfit of the Day." So all those fabulous bloggers posting selfies of their adorable outfits and to-die-for accessories with the hashtag #OOTD...it means it's their outfit of the day.
So let's get right to it shall we?
OOTD for pig hunting: Camo.
And since camo is fairly straight forward (i.e. camo top, camo bottoms) let's talk accessories shall we?
Firstly, when it's really cold outside (and believe me, it was freakin' cold outside) you're gonna want a beanie. I realize these may not be "in" right now, but they'll definitely keep your body heat...in.
See what I did there?
It's like a beanie, but for your neck. Slip it over your head and onto your neck, and you can tuck it into your jacket so the wind and cold won't seem so...windy and cold-y (cold-y?). Plus, you can put it as high up on your face as you want. Personally, I kept it all the way over my nose so my breath kept my face warm (is that gross?) and only my eyes were exposed to the elements.
I don't mess around when I'm cold.
Next, you'll see in the photo below, an additional set of accessories you'll want for your
outfit of the day.
You'll also want to forgo your lovely purse and go with a good, solid, hunting pack instead...not to worry, everything you keep in your purse you can throw into your pack if you so desire. And instead of schlepping your purse around on your shoulder, you'll be schlepping around your rifle. ...Cause your rifle is the ultimate OOTD accessory.
Lastly, you might also consider a good pair of shooting sticks. If you're wimpy like me and your rifle gets heavy when you have to hold it up and in the ready position for a while, the shooting sticks allow you to rest your rifle on them, taking away the weight and adding stability. Plus, it totally doubles as a tri-pod, which allows you to take some selfies when there's no one else around to take one for you.
So there you have it, my Outfit of the Day; a little less cute and trendy, but a little more
functional and practical.
I feel like this is a really good start to my career as a fashion blogger.
