So let's begin with the fact that this was supposed to be a super fun post! I may hate on WNY a lot since I'm from the south. I tend to hibernate in the winter from fear of freezing to death, but the few months of fabulous weather we do have, omg!!!! Those days are spent on the lake!
This my friends is Chautauqua Lake! Isn't it pretty?!? If it wasn't for the fact that you literally live in a snowy tundra 9 months out of the year, WNY really wouldn't be a bad place to live! Chillen lakeside during the warmer months totally rocks!
So when I found out Orvis, a store focusing on outdoors fabulosness wanted to work with me, the first thing that came to mind was lakeside photo shoot in my new lake gear. I knew it wouldn't be shorts weather, but this time of year we are usually graced with temps in at least the 40's. Warm enough to have hubby snap a few photos of me standing by my favorite hangout.
Well Mother Nature had totally different plans! The entire week and a half I have had my fabulous new Over-Embroidered Plaid Shirt in my possession, it's literally been blizzard central! My daughter didn't go to school on Friday because I was too scared to drive her! Snow in April is definitely not the norm, even in these parts, so it was looking like my lakeside photo shoot was not going to happen. I literally waited until the very last day I could possibly post this, keeping my fingers crossed that the weather would turn in my favor and NOPE! Snow might not be falling from the sky today, but it sure is still covering the ground -_- So goofy indoor photo shoot it was.
I chose this fabulousOver-Embroidered Plaid Shirt with the gift card Orvis sent me! These are my favorite types of shirts to wear out boating. Lightweight and soft fabric! The entire Orvis Spring collection offers transitional pieces perfect for a boat ride since everything is causal enough to get dirty or wet in, yet nice enough to wear into a bar or restaurant if we dock the boat!
With spring pretty much here in most parts of the country & almost here in WNY, it is the perfect time to spruce up your wardrobe with bright colors, free-flowing fabrics and every-wear comfortable pieces! Get inspired by nature with Orvis’ spring line that adds fashion and sophistication to every outdoor adventure! You seriously will not regret it!
