Hike chic

Taking a walk is good for you. Sometimes taking a long walk aka hiking is very good for you. I started hiking a couple of years ago while travelling in Indonesia. The hike was so strenuous but I came out of it feeling extremely good about myself. It felt like I conquered something: my fear of failing.

I think that’s what hiking does to you, it makes you look at yourself deeply. Whenever I go for a hike, there is a lot of opportunities to breath in fresh air, work up my heart rate and really pay attention to my surroundings. AND plenty of pep talk (especially if the hike is like 10 hours long). Despite aching feet and god knows what else, I come out triumphant each and every time I finish a hike. One thing that adds up to the excitement of the whole thing is of course the outfit. I believe a woman should also feel good about herself when she is hiking. But bear in mind, I do not advocate over the topness. 🙂

A comfy pair of cool legging, a pretty sports bra, a shirt and a cardigan is always my essentials. Add in a nice earrings and a watch, you will feel like you have finished the hike before you even started. And not to forget the shoes/sandals. They could make or break you. Mr. T recently bought us a pair of hiking sandals from Source. It is for all terrain and the purpose of our purchase is also to use during the summer time.

And you are set!

 

 

Mie-Tips:

1.If you want to save your sole and soul from blisters, please get a good pair of hiking footwear.

2. Bring sufficient H2O

3. If you are hiking is a warm place, do wear nice shirt and sports bra in case you need to remove the outer layer. You will still feel fab.
