A chunky knit jumper, comfortable treggings & small black bag make excellent travel companions for exploring both old & new places.
Pine cones, giant chalk boards with questionable doodles (see what I did there?) & greasy gas station food makes for one pretty stock standard Friday. For my brother & I anyway.
A cosy knit & some unbelievably comfortable pants from Boohoo were a great choice for the day’s cold antics & also for running, jumping & dancing around a pine forest. Completed the look with some enclosed leather ankle boots & the ever-versatile Wax Snake from Dylan Kain & I could probably have camped the night there if I had more spinach & ricotta rolls.
… & a bathroom because I am actually hopeless in the wilderness or anywhere outside of my house.
Between taking photos, were pondered the thought of “walkers” suddenly stumbling across our path and the idea that if we should ever steal a car*, this would apparently be the perfect place to dump it according to the burnt car bodies we saw, scattered throughout the state forest.
*Don’t worry, I can’t even steal food from my brother’s room & wouldn’t even know where to begin with stealing a car.

Double Zip Pony Hair Ankle Boots
Quite a mouthful to say, I’m just gonna go ahead & call them ankle boots. Mine are from The Mode Collective and feature gold double zips & a contrast of pony hair and leather but any pair of ankle boots will do for a road trip. As long as they are comfortable. The pointed end on mine required some breaking in but you know what the Atomic Kittens say; a little pain for a lot of pleasure. That pleasure being the freedom to frolic through the pine cones without the worry of sore feet.

Lisa Fisherman Jumper
When picking pinecones, one must be sure they are dressed appropriately. This means a chunky knit jumper, preferably in a neutral shade such as ivory, charcoal, stone or cream is essential.
Current favourites include this one from Boohoo.com & below selections.
