Jeans & Denim - Sun Valley Style




The Casual Active Life






Last week was spent in stunning and breathtaking Sun Valley, Idaho with several girlfriends. Each day was packed with walking, hiking, biking, swimming and exploring the towns of Halley, Ketchum and Sun Valley.  A couple of the friends hiked Mt. Baldy while myself and another took the Gondola. The view was spectacular and lunch at the Roundhouse was the ultimate way to end the excursion.   Sun Valley is a place that is laid back and understated in apparel and actions.   In fact, upon arriving and visiting the local grocery store, a famous celebrity from Freaky Friday (2003) literally strolled past us sporting dark sunglasses on a mission to abscond with a food item or two. She even dropped some crackers but we all gracefully let her be herself. Ironically, I had just seen this movie two weeks ago for the millionth time and to see her up close and personal in the store and again immediately after in a photograph at the Sun Valley Lodge with her mother was indeed a Freaky Wednesday moment.  By the way, she looked fabulous decked out with black sunglasses and black apparel. 

After thinking about the chill environment in Sun Valley the idea of embroidered denim popped into mind.  Maybe it was the summer flowers, or the beautiful scenery that inspired me to venture down the embellished jean look for late summer and early fall.  Or the upcoming eclipse happening in a few days perhaps instills unity towards a common goal and springs forth happiness and playfulness across the magical land.  By the way, Sun Valley is expecting 100K out of town visitors so be prepared as all will be congested in arriving to a place to train the eyes on the sky.  Watch for wildlife, patterns on the ground, the stars that pop out and a varied amount of hues.  Most importantly, don't forget your special four eyes and of course an embellished jean jacket or jeans for the utmost enjoyment.

Be prepared, find joy in everyday activities and partake in the upcoming full eclipse on Monday, April 21, 2017 if you can.  Don't fret about the small things in life or negative vibes hitting the airwaves.  All the energy focused on foul energy can only makes one person sick mentally and physically - yourself.   Don't do it.   When getting set for the celebration, which will bring young and old alike, take a moment and relish the beauty of the world and the cosmos.  Chill and pick up the Sun Valley, Idaho mantra.  We are truly blessed.
